As proud Ibanez dealers, we're excited to present this Premium ATZ10P Andy Timmons Signature guitar in a timeless Sunburst Matte finish! Ibanez is one of the best brands for signature guitars that uniquely exude their artists' styles and preferences, and this Andy Timmons model is no different.
Using the Ibanez AZ's shape and dimensions as a starting point, the guitar was brought to the next level as per Timmons' preferences - a DiMarzio pickup set, a Wilkinson WV6-SB tremolo that combines the best aspects of the vintage 6-screw bridge and the more modern 2-point with none of the downsides, and a Sunburst Matte finish that, when combined with the roasted maple neck and fretboard, gives the guitar a classic look reminiscent of a vintage '50s S-style guitar.
The DiMarzio Cruiser and AT-1 pickups sound fantastic. The Cruisers are muscular, full-sounding and powerful while retaining single-coil characteristics, and best of all, they're completely humbucking rail pickups, so you can use them for soaring high-saturation leads with zero noise. Pairing nicely with them is Timmons' signature AT-1 humbucker, which is medium output and packs quite a punch. It has the warm qualities of a PAF but significantly hotter - not too much, though, just enough to sing beautifully under gain. The coil-split switch allows for added versatility as well.
If you're looking for yet another awesome variant on the Ibanez AZ, are a big Andy Timmons fan, or simply want a great "Superstrat"-style guitar that changes things up with its vintage looks, check out the ATZ10P!
The Roasted Maple in the neck is heat-treated to increase stability, durability, moisture resistance and tolerance of temperature changes. Heat-treatment provides a well-balanced attack and tone and a rich sustain. In order to achieve supreme neck grip comfort, the fretboard edge is finished with a smooth curve. Jumbo frets contribute to smooth playability, especially for single-note playing. The Alder body delivers a well-balanced bright tone, enriched resonance and sustain. A DiMarzio® The Cruiser® in the neck position delivers single-coil tone, open vocal-sounding mids and a bit of added strength to the bass. A DiMarzio® AT-1™ in the bridge position gives excellent warmth and clarity, which balances well with the neck pickup. The Gotoh® MG-T locking machine heads achieve incredible tuning stability, cutting down string-changing time. By utilising the unique Wilkinson "5+1" knife-edges, the Wilkinson® WV6-SB tremolo bridge offers unsurpassed "tone transfer" of a 6-screw pivot system with the smooth fulcrum action of a 2 pivot set-up. The coil tap switch adds sound and tonal variation for the bridge humbucker pickup.
