What Ibanez Say:
Ibanez presented Artcore in 2002 and has been seen on stage with countless performers ever since. The Artcore's blend of rigorous workmanship and modern finesse has made armies of fans from differing worlds such as blues, country, rock and jazz. Artists can discover the virtue of an old school jazz-box crossed with a semi-hollow rock machine. Artcore is very well regarded for its tone, sustain, tuning stability, and the progressive nature of the series.
The Ibanez AS200 Artstar Prestige - Vintage Yellow Sunburst, features included the African Mahogany Neck with Bound Ebony Fretboard, Super 58 (H) Neck and Bridge Pickups and Figured Anigre Top with Prestige fret edge treatment
