The Ibanez ART600 Artist is a classic single-cutaway guitar that was built for modern metal. The mahogany body is capable of producing the warm and heavy tones of yesterday, while the active low-impedance pickups can handle massive volume levels with very little noise. Simple and effective, the ART600 electric guitar features a more modern, slimmer body and neck. The double-cutaway affords easy access to the uppermost frets, and a Quik Change III tailpiece enhances the mahogany body’s already powerful sustain.
Ibanez ART600 Artist Electric Guitar Features
- Mahogany body with set-in neck provides warm tones and sustain
- Gibraltar III Bridge augments the ARX’s strong sustain

Solid as a rock, the Tight-Tune bridge and tailpiece were designed to lock down securely and prevent any kind of wobble or movement. Each saddle is locked into the base plate, and the bridge is anchored by stud bolts into the guitar body. Studs are also locked onto the base plate for maximum transfer of string vibration to the body.
Ibanez original LoZ pickups have made the active pickup sounds accessible for anyone from starters to professionals. Operated by AA batteries, which are more widely available than traditional 9V batteries.
For powerful sound and long sustain: the ART600’s has a Sapele/Maple 3-piece neck construction.
The Ibanez ART600’s Auto Trim locking machine heads: the smart design cuts the excess string after you re-string and tune up – no extra cutting tool needed.
