The AZ2402L is a left-handed AZ series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez for 2020. It is produced in Japan by Fujigen as part of the upscale Prestige line.

The AZ2402L features an alder body bolted to an S-Tech roasted maple oval C shaped neck with an S-Tech roasted maple fingerboard with 24 stainless steel frets, black dot position markers and Luminlay side dots. Components include a pair of Seymour Duncan Hyperion humbucking pickups, a Gotoh T1802 two-point synchronized tremolo bridge with titanium saddles, an oil-impregnated bone nut, Sure-Grip III knobs, an angled output jack and Gotoh locking tuning machines with height-adjustable posts.

The AZ2402L employs a dyna-MIX10 switching system (see diagram below) 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.

A new Pearl White Flat finish was added in 2021 at least in some European markets.

The AZ2402 is a right-handed version.
