Ibanez Artcore AF75 – Ibanez Jazz guitar
Ibanez have been producing well made and great sounding jazz guitars for a while and its Artcore range is well known amongst astute jazz guitar enthusiasts as great guitars offering some pretty fantastic features at a fraction of the cost of say a comparative Gibson or Gretsch.
The Ibanez Artcore AF75 itself makes for a great jazzer – it is a true hollow body guitar and looks pretty lush from the outset – Ibanez makes has a tradition for making beautiful guitars and this Artcore is no different. With a fully bound all maple body that provides tight resonance without feedback the Artcore produces those perfect tones for those that crave an authentic jazz sound.
For those looking for some tonal flexability – this Ibanez also provides a more than credible take on rock, blues and punky tones offering a little something different from the usual tones of a Strat or Les paul. For those that love their rockabilly prepare to fall in love as with the right amp this guitar can growl with the best of them.
With features such as a mahogany set neck, bound rosewood fretboard and pearl block inlay your fingers will love it. While the lower end of the guitar market often get criticised for their pickups the ACH1 humbucker at the neck and ACH2 at the bridge provide a beefy, quiet signal with pronounced mids (check out the Youtube video below to hear the Artcore in action – Note:this is the AFS75T with Bigsby style tremolo).
