Great guitar!
raphafaria, 25.11.2020
I really enjoy this guitar. The neck is absolutely brilliant. Very confortable, perfect fretwork, no buzzing.
The pickups are pretty bright. But there's a lot of clarity and they are in my opinion very good.
The bridge and tuners are also pretty good. Though I'm not a dive bomb player I use the trem a lot and everything stays in tune really well.

As for the cons:
Ibanez should really step up a bit on their QA. The guitar came badly set up and the pickups were really dirty with loads of fingerprints. I had to clean it and do a setup. I don't mind setting it up myself, but have that in mind. On the topic, I had to have it once replaced because the first one came with a noisy bridge that would make a squeaky sound every time I touched the bar.
The new one also have the fretboard in a slightly lighter color than the neck. Not a big deal but... The sad part is the one I had to return had perfect coloring.

Other than that it's a great guitar!

Tolle Gitarre zu einem fairen Preis.
Tony F, 16.02.2020
Ich habe mir die Gitarre als Allrounder geholt. Mir war wichtig, dass die Gitarre gut klingt und sich gut spielen lässt. Das Aussehen war für mich eher zweitrangig.
Als ich die Gitarre ausgepackt habe und in die Hand genommen habe, war ich sofort von der guten Bespielbarkeit begeistert. Der Hals fühlt sich sehr angenehm an und die Hand gleitet geschmeidig über Hals und Griffbrett.
Auch klanglich konnte mich die HSS Kombination überzeugen. Ich hatte bis zu diesem Zeitpunkt nur HH Gitarren und wollte endlich mal eine Gitarre mit Single Coils. Man hat durch den 5-Wege-Schalter und den Alter Switch zehn verschiedene Pick-Up Konfigurationen, was die Gitarre klanglich sehr flexibel macht. Allerdings ist sie für Metal definitiv ungeeignet. Dafür hat der Humbucker zu wenig Power und vor allem Palm-muted klingt die Gitarre verzerrt zu undefiniert. Dafür habe ich sie mir aber auch nicht geholt...
Die Stimmstabilität ist ebenfalls sehr gut. Ich habe die Gitarre anfangs einmal gestimmt und bis jetzt (nach 2 Wochen) musste ich trotz intensiver Benutzung nicht nachstimmen. Allerdings benutze ich das Tremolo auch eher selten.
Ich hatte bis jetzt kein Prestige Modell in der Hand, kann mir aber nicht vorstellen, dass sich der Aufpreis von mehreren hundert Euro lohnt, da sich die Gitarren im Großen und Ganzen nur durch einen etwas anders behandelten Hals und anderes Metall in der Brücke unterscheiden. Die Verarbeitung der AZ226 ist einwandfrei.
