The AZ2402BWB is an AZ series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in late 2019. It was produced in Japan by Fujigen as a limited edition model in the upscale Prestige line. It was offered only in Japan.

The AZ2402BWB features a 4mm thick Bastogne walnut top on an alder body bolted to an S-Tech roasted maple oval C shaped neck with a S-Tech roasted birdseye maple fingerboard with 24 stainless steel frets, abalone dot position markers and luminescent side dots. Components include a pair of Seymour Duncan Hyperion humbucking pickups with white bobbins, a T1802 two-point synchronized tremolo bridge with titanium saddles made by Gotoh, an oil-impregnated bone nut, Sure-Grip II knobs, an angled output jack and Gotoh locking tuning machines with height-adjustable posts.

Dyna-MIX10 switching diagram

The AZ2402BWB employs a dyna-MIX10 switching system (see diagram at right) with an "Alter switch" toggle which allows the user to access ten distinct tones. The Alter switch appears to tap one coil of the humbucker (as opposed to a traditional coil-split which disables one coil completely) to achieve a sound similar to a single coil without the drop in output which typically accompanies a coil split.

The AZ2402 is a similar model with a solid alder body. The AZ2402K is a similar model with a koa top. The AZ2402Q is a similar model with a quilted maple top. The AZ2402MW is a similar model with a myrtle top.

The AZ2402BWB was discontinued after 2019.
