The AR is a classic among Ibanez guitars. It was one of the first original designs produced by Ibanez and continues to be a sought after guitar. The AR series continues that legacy with pride.
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 add 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.
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.
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. That gives the AR420 a tonal versatility unmatched by any other guitar of this type.
Multi-ply necks are ultra-rigid, which means they help transmit string energy to your guitar's body faster and better. So the three-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.
