Features

FLATV S-TECH WOOD Roasted Maple neck

The FLATV neck features a ’Soft V’ neck grip shape that blends the charm of a classic neck shape with a modern feel. This enables the neck to feel both substantial and comfortable to the player. The S-TECH Roasted Maple neck is constructed with 1 piece, and is the perfect combination of form and function.

S-TECH WOOD Roasted Maple fretboard

The S-TECH special roasted treatment provides a superior attack, a well-balanced tone and a rich sustain. In order to achieve supreme neck grip comfort, the fretboard edge is finished with a smooth curve.

Seymour Duncan® FLAT5™ pickups

Josh’s signature pickup set from Seymour Duncan feature a vintage style neck pickup with slightly increased output to adhere to Josh’s exacting tonal specifications, paired with a bridge pickup that is constructed with a mix of different types of Alnico magnets to best match the tone that Josh has relied on for years, and is able to capture guitar sounds that are both bright and fat.

Gotoh® machine heads

Gotoh® machine heads provide super precision, smooth feel, and minimal back lush.

Gotoh® F1803 bridge

The Gotoh® F1803 bridge improves sustain and tuning stability.

Gotoh®/Ibanez co-designed “In-Tune” saddles

These saddles are equipped with grooves which actively prevent each string from slipping to the side.
The saddles also feature rounded edges and deeper grooves on 1st and 6th strings, which means much less saddle tilting is required to adjust the string height, and equal string spacing is more easily achieved. Additionally, the saddles are designed with pre-calculated “intonation points” where the string touches the saddle, allowing each string to have and maintain precise intonation. The 10.5mm string spacing allows for easy picking across strings. The saddles themselves are made of titanium for maximum tonal clarity.

Control plate specially designed for AZS series

This control plate is curved for easier access to all the knobs and switches, without sacrificing its traditional appearance.

Special Control knobs for FLATV

Specially designed control knobs allow that feature extra knurl for more responsive control.

Slab body

A non-contoured ‘slab’ style AZS body, allowing for a classic look and feel.

FLATV joint heel

This neck joint and heel offer a feel that is reminiscent of the golden era of guitar design, with the four-bolt metal neck plate adding extra strength and stability.

Luminlay side dot inlays

The Luminlay side dot position marks make it easy for players to see fretboard position marks when performing on dark stages.
