There are three principles behind the Ibanez Prestige line: Precision, Performance, and Playability. Prestige combines high-tech manufacturing techniques with old-world Japanese craftsmanship, in order to achieve true innovation in design and construction. The series incorporates ideas and suggestions from musicians from around the world as the cornerstones of the Prestige production process.


- Oval C S-TECH WOOD Roasted Maple neck. The S-TECH special roasted treatment increases the wood's stability, durability, water resistance and tolerance of temperature changes. The neck is sealed with an oil finish which helps make it feel similar to a well-played guitar neck.
- S-TECH WOOD Roasted Maple fretboard. The S-TECH special roasted treatment provides a superior attack, a well-balanced tone and a rich sustain. In order to achieve supreme neck grip comfort, the fretboard edge is finished with a smooth curve.
- Stainless steel frets boast excellent corrosion resistance. The wide and tall fret-type offers a quick response, good read more articulation when playing chords and clear tone when playing single notes.
- The Prestige Fret Edge Treatment guarantees effortlessly fast playing.
- The Alder body delivers a well-balanced bright tone, enriched resonance and sustain.
- Seymour Duncan Hyperion Pickups feature a moderate output through Alnico-5 magnets to keep the clarity of the fundamental tone when using distortion and to deliver a clear pick attack. From treble to bass, the overall tonal balance is evenly adjusted and works well with various effect pedals.
- The Gotoh MG-T locking machine heads achieve incredible tuning stability, cutting down string-changing time.
-The T1872S tremolo bridge features machined titanium saddles and a machined steel tremolo block for a quick response, thick lows and rich highs and its snap-in construction makes it easy to load a tremolo arm.
- The dyna-MIX 10 offers ten sound variations and can easily switch from humbucker and single coil modes with the mini switch. The power Tap mode provides a realistic single coil sound despite its two humbucker pickup layout.
- Ibanez Hardshell case gives you extreme protects for your be-loved instrument.
- The Oil-impregnated bone nut provides superior tuning stability and warm rich resonance. Stainless steel frets boast excellent corrosion resistance.
- A shallow body back contour and a big forearm contour make 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.

So a while back, I bought one of these and sold it when I needed some cash. Now, things are better, so, I got another. I’ve owned multiple other Ibanez prestige 7 strings. A 1527, both 1527M’s(j craft and pre.), I’ve owned $1,000+ Jackson 7’s, and a few others. Obviously this isn’t a cheap guitar. And it shouldn’t be. Because both that I’ve received and owned are absolutely STELLAR. The neck is like if Fender made Lamborghini’s. It’s thin, but round, and friendly. The finish on the neck allows for flawless slides with no sticking, the fret ends are the best I’ve ever felt, again, having owned multiple Ibanez prestige Etc that are ‘on par’ with this guitar. The pickups are as versatile as you can ask for. I can find comfort in playing anything from Periphery, to Coldplay, to Journey, to Born of Osiris, to Blink 182, truly some of the most versatile pickups I’ve ever played, and I normally go through pickup sets like strings. These aren’t going anywhere. Again, I’ve played djent to Coldplay on this and it does it all without a hiccup, and I’ve been a gear/pickup/amp nerd for 15 years. You can’t state this kind of versatility lightly. All of the hardware is name brand, even down to the side dots. And it’s quite obvious when you play it. Being an Ibanez prestige, you get a hard shell case, and alllllll of the case candy. Ibanez has historically been good about this and that new Prestige smell has been the same for the 20 years I’ve bought them. read more Finish- amazing. Hasn’t glossed yet despite being matte/satin but I’m very good about washing my hands before playing it, and the one I had before this one didn’t show any wear either. Honestly I have not a bad thing to say about this guitar. If you ask me Ibanez should charge $2800 because this is better than most USA Jackson 7’s or anything else high end 7string and metal capable. If I had to say one bad thing, it’s a TICK on the heavy side, but that will not keep me from playing it. I’d love this if it was 50lbs. Also kind of miss the prestige logo on the headstock but I have no one to impress in my home office. TLDR; I’ve owned two of these. I bought a second when I got my money right because I wanted a brand new one before production stops. If you can manage the payment plan or buy this outright, and you play metal, prog, blues, 80’s, if you play lead or rhythm, none of it matters just buy this. It will do what you want. Please buy one so Ibanez puts more money into AZ7’s and makes more models. I’d love a second one, despite having to answer my wife’s questions about another guitar.
