General What is your overall opinion of this product? I have had many guitars over the years including pricey gibby's and Fender's. But never have I been this blown away by anything at this price point or 3 to 4 times above this price point. I only gave it a 3 on playability because I had to do a few things to get it set up to my personal preferences. But there were no issues that anyone who knows how to do a setup couldn't resolve. The tone is amazing on this thing! The tone and volume pots are high quality and have great range. Also I really dig the rubber grip ring on the knobs. Very innovative! After 2 bad experiences, I swore that I would never buy another made in china instrument. But after listening to videos on this and knowing about American Musicals return policy I decided to give it a whirl, Glad I did. I absolutely love this guitar! Quality What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music? The quality seems to be very good on this guitar including the finish. I know you can get great classic rock and blues tones (which is what I mostly play). But I can tell it would also be suitable for jazz. Feel Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? It has the fast Ibanez neck so it feels pretty good. Tone How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin? The tone is awesome and thick with tremendous articulation. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Excellent finish. Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range? Very good bang for your buck here. I don't think an Epiphone in this price range would sound nearly this good. Playability How was the action out of the box? Wasn't very playable out of the box. But I've had to set up every guitar I've ever owned so I feel this was normal.
Beautiful Looking, Seem Sturdy, Well Built, Finished Perfectly, Winner all the Way

General Your general opinion of this product. Really Beautiful Looking and Finished to a Tee, Ibanez Done Their job Well Here Giving Us Players a sharp Looking and Tremendous Playing/Sounding Guitar at a Fraction of the Cost of a Gibby, Gretsch,etc. Hats off to the Ibanez People. Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? It is well made, as good or better than others. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Can sound LP like or Gretsch like according to your pick attack and amp's EQ settings. Yours sounds are there thanks to the Super 58 PUs. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Very eye appealing and well done-flawless finish-

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? No! My gut feeling on a Chinese made guitar was to avoid them ! This model got alot of positive reviews online ......and I bought this with the hopes that the reviews were true.. Looking at this guitar out of the box .... i wanted to convince myself to keep it ... but what good is a guitar that is beautiful that you cant play cause of sharp fret edges ! General Your general opinion of this product. Beautiful in appearance, impossible to enjoy playing Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Didnt really bother getting into how it sounds Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Outstanding job on the finish ....kids !

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? This Ibanez Artcore AM93 Semi Hollow Body guitar is as good as it gets for the price. Solid construction, beautiful finish! General Your general opinion of this product. I did a lot of research before deciding on this Ibanez. I thought it strange to see all five stars no matter where I searched. Now I know why. I to give this little baby my highest rating! Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? The tone can be changed to bright or dark with the twist of a knob. Great sound! Finish How did the stain or paint job look? I was hoping that Ibanez had a blue finish on this guitar however the red is awesome and the finish is like glass no blemishes anywhere. Fine workmanship!
Pleasant Surprise
