A Classically Influenced Modern ShredderWith a seven-string design, mahogany body, carved top, and single cutaway shape, the Ibanez ARZIR27 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 TonewoodsThe name "Ibanez" often calls to mind sharp-looking bodies with cutting-edge features. Ibanez took a detour with the ARZIR27, 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 Stocked with a pair of EMG 707 active pickups the ARZIR27 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 707s can handle all the distortion you could want, while keeping your rhythm playing from ever sounding muddy -- even when you get into 7-string mayhem. Switch over to the neck pickup, and you've got that fat lead sound that commands attention from your audience.
Rock-Solid ComponentsThe Tune-O-Matic bridge featured on the ARZIR27 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.

Product DescriptionThe Ibanez ARZIR27FB Iron Label features 3-pc Mahogany/ Maple ARZ-7 set-in neck, beautiful Figured Bubinga top/ Mahogany body, Jumbo frets, and the TOM 7 bridge for superior intonation and sustain. Electronics include two EMG 707 pickups, specifically designed to beef up the low B while providing a more responsive, super-tight overall sound. The ARZIR27FB's high gloss finish, bound Ebony fingerboard, Pearl/ Abalone block inlay, and gold hardware, take the Iron Label series to a higher level with style and 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 and 24-fret, ultra-comfort set-in neck with smooth heel, designed for metal music. With its longer 25" scale length, the ARZ series are meant for down tuning, and a natural for the Iron Label treatment. As the leader in 7-string guitar development, maximizing the sonic gravitas of the ARZ series with a seventh string was purely a matter of simple evolution for Ibanez.
