Product Description

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.

Nice instrument, very good value
What is your overall opinion of this product?
Overall very good. It actually plays and looks excellent. But the screw holding the pickguard was loose causing to move, which I tightened, and there is a tiny 'ding' in the neck but not enough to worry about.
What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music?
Excellent for jazz type playing. Less feedback than most hollow bodies when vol. is up there
Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
Guitar is pretty light, Action is very good, a little tough in the first fret though neck is a bit too narrow for 7 strings in the first position.
How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin?
Acoustic tone is pretty balanced a little on the bright side. Pickups are typical for a jazz hollow body, not exceptional.
How did the stain or paint job look?
Finish is excellent, aside from a tiny 'ding' on the neck, not noticeable unless you inspect for it. Doesn't matter as eventually there will be others if you PLAY the guitar, not take it out as a showpiece.
Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?
It was an excellent value.
How was the action out of the box?
Action was a little too low causing higher frets to buzz and the intonation was sharp. Just took a little time to adjust the floating wood bridge and it corrected the flaw. Now it's playing fine.
