Ibanez introduced Artcore in 2002 and has been the hollow-body guitar of choice for musicians for the last 10 years.
The Artcore's combination of quality workmanship and affordability has created legions of fans from diverse genres as blues, country, rock and jazz.
Musicians can find the purity of an old school style jazz-box to a hybrid semi-hollow rocker.
Artcore is highly respected for its tone, sustain and the way they hold their tuning and how the series continues to push the boundaries of guitar building.
The AFS body features full-hollow construction, offering traditional jazz tone and midrange punch, yet it's thinner than traditional jazz boxes for easier playability. (afs thinner full-hollow body), This old school vibrato adds country and rockabilly nuances to the rich tone of a full-hollow guitar, but the included roller saddles eliminate "old school" tuning problems. *VBF70 Vintage Vibrato design licensed by Fred W.
