What Ibanez Say:
The Ibanez AF55 TKF Electric Guitar - Tobacco Flat, is part of the New 2019 range of Artcore Models that Ibanez has released. With vintage guitars as popular as they've become, their cost has skyrocketed in recent years. Even relic'd new guitars are often outrageously over-priced. Now, Ibanez proudly offers Artcore Vintage - the alternative to pricey vintage instruments. The Artcore Vintage "aging" process applies to hardware and other appointments, as well as the body, giving each guitar a convincingly real, worn appearance. The parallel histories of Jazz music and hollow-body electric guitars have been manifested in the Artstar. The influences of these legendary instruments are immediately apparent with bone nut, ebony fretboard, and Ibanez's signature Super 58 custom pickups. The critical eye will appreciate the details like the smoothness of the fretboard and a skilled crimping technique generally found on instruments costing twice as much. The Artstar is a pure jazz-box that embodies the continual innovation that is Jazz. Built with an Artcore AF Mahogany set-in neck(20 frets)
and Linden top/back/sideswith Bound Indian Laurel fretboard with White dot inlay and equiped with Infinity R (H) and Infinity R (H) Pickups, and 1 Volume, 1 Tone, 3-way toggle switch.
