With its finish and Flamed Maple top, back, and sides, the love of jazz history emanates from the Ibanez AF155 Artstar Hollow Body Electric Guitar. The bound Ebony fingerboard sports medium frets with edges that are noticeably smooth to a sliding hand, the product of a skilled crimping technique generally found on instruments costing twice as much.
The neck construction of the AF155 hollowbody is set-in, the bridge is made of rosewood, and at the headstock end is a bone nut. As for the pickup-no less than Ibanez's famous Super 58 Custom, known for its balanced tone character as well as its sonic fullness. Whether restrained to jazz-clean or cranked up to rockin' blues dirty, the Super 58 Custom gets the job done.
Ibanez Artstar Series
Ibanez calls their new Artstar models, "Hollow-bodies of the highest order." As the guitar builder for some of the brightest luminaries of modern jazz guitar, Ibanez has paved some middle ground between their upscale signature models and their popular Artcore series.
