The Ibanez AFJ957 Artcore Hollowbody 7-String Electric Guitar allows you to get great jazzy tones with increased tonal possibilities of a low 7th string! A Spruce top with Flamed Maple back and sides, as well as a handsome clean white binding on body, headstock, and fingerboard provide a great look and tone. Carefully crafted set-in neck construction ensures body liveliness. The AFJ957 Artcore’s 3-piece Maple/Mahogany neck has proven its reliability through the years on numerous Ibanez hollow and semi-hollow models.
As the guitar builder that pioneered and perfected the seven-string, the Ibanez AFJ957 is a natural for Ibanez. The Artcore Custom-7s are Ibanez proprietary pickups designed specifically for this model and are capable of translating the full range of this seven-string in its full color.
For a decade now, Ibanez has energized the hollow-body segment with a wide range of designs-with everything from rockin' hybrids to traditional jazz-boxes. The Expressionist line begins yet another chapter in the Artcore story. Built with tone woods selected for their beauty as well as their musicality, the Expressionist line covers the wide range of styles for which Ibanez hollow and semi-hollow bodies are known.
