Ibanez ATZ100-SBT Andy Timmons Signature Series Electric Guitar, Sunburst Flat

The ATZ100 is based on the Ibanez AZ Prestige model and includes all of that model’s advantages, as well as adding new features favored by Andy and not yet offered in the AZ format. The ATZ100 features the one-piece Maple neck made with S-TECH wood, an AZ staple. S-TECH wood is processed with a special nitrogen-heat treatment. This process increases the wood’s stability, durability, water resistance and tolerance of temperature changes. The neck is sealed with an oil finish (sealer coat) which makes it feel similar to a well-played neck. The ATZ100’s fretboard width measures 40.5mm at the nut, slightly thinner than the Prestige AZ, and its grip shape is also slightly thicker, to mirror Andy’s legendary AT guitar. The shallow body back contour and big forearm contour help the guitar’s body fit the player naturally, thus increasing playing comfort. The body has a deep waist and different radii on each body edge curve (3 mmR on body top/8 mmR on body back), making it easier to play in both standing and sitting position. Andy’s favorite DiMarzio® The Cruiser® pickups are installed in all positions. The combination of these pickups deliver single-coil tone, open vocal-sounding mids and a bit of added strength to the bass. These pickups also relieve players of string drop-outs and sustain-killing magnet pull. The guitar also includes the Smooth Taper volume filter, which maintains the guitar’s high frequencies at low volumes and provides more uniform tone from 1 to 10. The Wilkinson®-Gotoh® VSVG tremolo unit features smooth arm action and the unique design of its elongated baseplate screw holes help promote accurate pitch return by eliminating binding. Its locking bent-steel saddles provide a vintage tone and feel. The string mounting holes in the steel block are staggered to help keep string angle over the saddles consistent, which helps increase tuning stability. GOTOH® MAGNUM LOCK® machine heads, which have an established reputation for tuning stability, are mounted on the headstock. Its H. A. P® (Height Adjustable Post). system allows for the adjustment of string post height to achieve the appropriate tension and string angle for each string individually. Hardshell case included.

Ibanez is one of the first Japanese musical instrument companies to gain a significant foothold in import guitar sales in the United States and Europe, as well as the first brand of guitars to mass-produce the seven-string guitar and eight-string guitar. The company has an impressive lineup of products ranging from instruments to pedals and accessories, and have recently raised standards and eyebrows with the new AZ Series, which Josh Smith described as the best superstrat he’s played in a long time.
