As we are now fully-submerged into the ocean of NAMM 2021, we’ve already seen lots of companies come forward with full-year lineups. One of those companies, of course, is Ibanez — which for a long time built a strong reputation as one of the best modern guitar manufacturers. So much so, that it has consistently found itself having to announce products in bulk at the top of each year. With that said, this year is no different for Ibanez. Among its full lineup of products are a set of 11 new electric models, across three series to look forward to. Here’s the complete breakdown of Ibanez’s electric guitar products for 2021.
New Ibanez Prestige Hollow Body Guitars
The first set of three guitars accompanying Ibanez’s 2021 NAMM drop, belong to its Prestige Hollow Body family. Included among the newcomers pictured above are the AF2000, AM2000H, and AS2000, respectively. All three models feature ‘Brown Sunburst’ style finishes, a common hollow-body style. Aside from that, each one has slight differences in build from the other. Whether in the headstock design, or formatting of the bridge. Regardless, all three look really nice in their own way and we’re sure they sound just as awesome.
New Ibanez AZ-S Series Guitars
Next up in Ibanez’s new models is a full series set of five guitars, called the AZ-S series. These guitars feature 22 frets across a S-Tech roasted maple neck, and a body made of Alder wood. Its two pickup system includes a Seymour Duncan Magic Touch-mini humbucker, and an Alnico II Pro Custom single coil. This set is available in five finishes: Black, Sunset Burst, Royal Blue Sapphire, Prussian Blue Metallic, and Tri-Fade Burst.
New Ibanez AZ-N Series Guitars
The final set of three guitars Ibanez introduced as part of Believe in Music Week, belong to its new AZ-N line of electrics. These bodies feature a Stratocaster-esque cut, with some sharper edges that make it uniquely Ibanez. They feature the same roasted maple neck and Alder body as the AZ-S guitars. As pictured above, the introductory finishes available among the AZ-N guitars are Antique White Blonde, Black, and Prussian Blue Metallic.
