It’s a good thing the Ibanez AR420 solidbody electric guitar has a unique look; otherwise, you might make assumptions about how it plays and sounds. Part of Ibanez’s Artist Series, the AR420 has a feel and playability that will appeal to a wide range of players of all types, and the versatile tone, combined with quality construction and tonewoods, adds up to a value-packed guitar. You get rich tone, sustain, and a classy look from an okoume body topped with maple; a 3-piece maple neck offers comfort with its slim profile and smooth heel. At the same time, two Super 58 Custom humbuckers with Tri-sound electronics give the Ibanez AR420 undeniable tonal tenacity. The Ibanez AR420 also features a Gibraltar Performer bridge and Quik Change Ultra tailpiece, providing long sustain and tuning stability.

Okoume and flame maple combine for a rich tone

The right tonewoods will set the tonal foundation for how a guitar will sound plugged in. For the AR420, Ibanez added a flame maple top to an okoume body. Flame maple doesn’t just look beautiful, it enhances the rich tonality and sustain of the okoume body. The result is a powerful sound that can sound warm and soulful or aggressive and biting when you match it up with the appropriate amplifier.

Sonic flexibility from Tri-sound electronics

The AR420 is equipped with a pair of Tri-sound switches to unlock three different “voices” per pickup. Each of the Super 58 humbuckers can be used in series, parallel, and single-coil operation, opening the door for you to explore new and unique sounds.There’s a lot of tonal territory to cover here, and you’ll love exploring how each configuration sounds through your favorite amplifier.

Ultra-playable 3-piece neck

The newest generations of Ibanez guitars have begun appearing with multi-ply necks, which is a massive improvement in the eyes of guitarists. Multi-ply necks are ultra-rigid, which means they need less maintenance and help transmit string energy to your guitar’s body more efficiently. The 3-piece set maple neck on the AR420 adds clarity and detail to your performance, which balances nicely with the richness and depth of the body woods.
