There's something irresistible about a vintage guitar- well worn with battle scars, earned throughout years of hard use. Like a favorite old leather jacket, it immediately feels familiar. Now, Ibanez proudly offers Artcore Expressionist Vintage- the alternative to pricey vintage instruments. The Artcore Expressionist Vintage "aging" process applies to hardware and other appointments, as well as the body, giving each guitar a convincingly real, worn appearance.
