The AZ226 features an American Basswood body. The AZ's ergonomic back body contour and big forearm contour lets the guitar body fit the player naturally, thus increasing playing comfort. The AZ body has a deep waist and different radii on each body edge curve, making it easier to play in both standing or sitting positions. The AZ Roasted Maple neck was heat-treated to increase the wood's stability, durability, water resistance and tolerance of temperature changes.

The Roasted Maple fretboard is also heat-treated to help it provide a well-balanced note attack and tone with rich sustain. In order to achieve the ultimate neck grip comfort, the fretboard edge is finished with a smooth curve. The Super All Access Neck Joint increases playability and eases access to the highest frets.

Stainless steel frets boast excellent corrosion resistance and the wide and tall fret-type offers a quick response, good articulation when playing chords and clear tone while playing single notes. The AZ226 is equipped with luminescent side dot position marks, making it easy for players to see fretboard position marks while performing on dark stages. Seymour Duncan Hyperion Pickups feature read more a moderate output through Alnico-5 magnets, which retain the clarity of the fundamental tone when using a distorted sound, and deliver a clear pick attack.

The Dyna-MIX 9 offers nine sound variations. One Dyna-MIX 9 mode even simulates a humbucker sound using the combination of the 2 single coil pickups.

The T1502 tremolo bridge, developed in collaboration with GOTOH, features steel saddles for a quick response and improved articulation. The 10.5mm string spacing allows for easy picking across strings, enabling techniques such as string skipping and hybrid picking. The AZ226 features Gotoh MG-T locking machine heads, which have an established reputation for tuning stability. Gig bag included.
