If you thought the only good full or semi hollow guitars were expensive (and the inexpensive ones weren’t any good), think again.
Ibanez Artcore guitars represent thinking that’s way outside the box. No matter what kind of music you play – punk, alt rock, nu rock, whatever – if you’re serious about adding rich tones to the mix, it’s time to stop just thinking about it. With Ibanez Artcore, you can now afford to go full or semi hollow. You can’t afford not to! The AFS75T medium frets, a maple body, the ART-2 roller bridge and ACH humbuckers.
When Ibanez Artcore guitars debuted in summer 2002, they turned the music industry upside down. No longer were full and semi acoustic guitars just big expensive jazz boxes for jazz players—even some of our competitors bought them (no, we're not making this up). With Artcore guitars you get an amazingly affordable price plus the quality and tone you expect from Ibanez, the guitar company with over four decades of experience making full and semi acoustic guitars.
