With a mahogany body, carved top, and single cutaway shape, the Ibanez ARZIR20 looks modern, but is clearly influenced by classic guitars. When it comes to sound, make no mistake -- this guitar is part of the Iron Label series, and with its active EMG pickups, it's ready to roar.

A Different Cut: Classic Shape and Premium Tonewoods

The name "Ibanez" often calls to mind sharp-looking bodies with cutting-edge features. Ibanez took a detour with the ARZIR20, opting for a more classic design. The single-cutaway body is made of mahogany with a bubinga top for a full, warm sound. The set mahogany neck keeps that resonance alive and meets the guitar's body with a smooth heel joint. The slim profile and ebony fretboard dare players to discover new shredding top speeds.

Made for Metal: EMG Active Pickups

Depending on your playing style, the ARZIR20 can play the part of classic rock axe to jazz workhorse. Stocked with a pair of active pickups -- an EMG 60 in the neck and EMG 81 in the bridge -- the guitar delivers pristine clean tones that can be easily adjusted with the tone and volume knobs.

Once you plug into a high-gain amp, however, there's no hiding the true nature of this beast. The EMG 81 can handle all the distortion you could want, while keeping your rhythm playing from ever sounding muddy. Switch over to the neck EMG 60, and you've got that fat lead sound that commands attention from your audience.

Rock-Solid Components

The Tune-O-Matic bridge featured on the ARZIR20 is also a bit of a departure from Ibanez's usual style. On this guitar, it offers tuning stability and ease when adjusting string height and intonation. Plus, the bridge provides a comfortable surface to rest your hand on when palm muting. The locking tuners ensure your sound stays true -- no matter how low your drop tunings go.

- Single cutaway body
- Mahogany body with bubinga top
- Abalone binding on body

Product Description

The Ibanez ARZIR20 Iron Label guitar features a ARZ set-in mahogany neck and body, Jumbo frets, and the TOM bridge for superior intonation and sustain.

Electronics include an EMG 60 pickup for a classic thick, buttery tone and an EMG 81 for fluid sustain and blistering high end that can cut through any mix. With a beautiful high-gloss finish, bound Ebony fingerboard, locking tuners, Pearl/Abalone block inlays, and Cosmo Black hardware, the ARZIR20 takes the ARZ and Iron Label series to a higher level of style and classic elegance.

Iron Label, the Ibanez made-for-metal series, continues its thunderous offensive on the metal guitar market as its single-cutaway down-tunable wonder, the ARZ, joins the Iron Label.

The ARZ series feature a sleek, single cutaway design, 24-fret, ultra-comfort set-in neck with smooth heel, designed for metal music. With a longer 25" scale length, the ARZ series was meant for down tuning--and the Iron Label treatment.

Features:

- Bubinga top
- Mahogany body
- Mahogany ARZ set-in Mahogany neck
- EMG 60, and EMG 81 Pickups
