What Ibanez Say:
The Ibanez AFV75 VAL Electric Guitar - Vintage Amber Burst Low Gloss , is part of the New 2019 range of Artcore Models that Ibanez has released. The AF is the most traditional of the Artcore series. The traditional full-hollow construction means there are no sound blocks in the body. Producing rich and complex tones, the AF is the guitar for the purist in all of us. 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 AF Artcore Nyatoh set-in neck and Linden top/Linden back & sideswith Bound Laurel fretboard with Aged Acrylic block inlay and equiped with Classic Elite (H) and Classic Elite (H) Pickups, and 2 Volume, 2 Tone, 3-way toggle switch.
