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 a mahogany body topped with maple, while two Super 58 Custom humbuckers with Tri-sound electronics give the Ibanez AR420 undeniable tonal tenacity.

    Rich, vintage tone from mahogany and flame maple

    The arched flame maple top on the AR420 looks beautiful, and with the gold hardware it puts out a classy vibe. But it also enhances the rich tonality and sustain of the mahogany body for 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

    Each of the Super 58 Custom humbuckers on the AR420 has a Tri-sound switch, which lets you choose between series, parallel, and coil-tap operation. There's a lot of tonal territory to cover here, and you'll love exploring how each configuration sounds through your favorite amplifier.

    3-piece neck is ultra-rigid for exceptional performance

    Multiply necks are ultra-rigid, which means they help transmit string energy to your guitar's body faster and better. So the 3-piece maple neck on the AR420 adds clarity and detail to your performance, which balances nicely with the richness and depth of mahogany and maple.
