The Ibanez AX features modern and classic rock design, an AR headstock shape and white block inlay and a refined pickguard and body shape. The AX series utilizes a 40mm thinner, lightweight body, allowing intense live performance capabilities on stage. Ibanez Classic Elite humbuckers and 3-way switch enable covering extensive tonal ground, with rich, nuanced tone and a fat low-end. The double-cutaway body makes higher frets more accessible and the Gibraltar Performer bridge and Quik Change III transfer the vibration efficiently and offer superior intonation and sustain. Combining playability and classic looks, the AX series is one of the best start-up guitars for playing rock music.
