Lurking beneath its aged looking façade and smoky, low gloss finish is a sophisticated full-hollow that can easily handle almost any musical challenge imaginable. The AFBV200A features a select-grade maple top, back and sides. The fretboard is a rich rosewood, contrasted by white dot inlays. The 3-piece Artcore maple/mahogany neck has proven its reliability on thousands of Ibanez hollow and full-hollow bodies throughout the years. The authentic rosewood bridge is rock solid. The Classic Elite pickups are matched perfectly to Artcore basses: very responsive, warm in tone coloration yet since they are of moderate output, minimizing the likelihood of feedback.

There’s something enticing about the look of an older, vintage gear—well worn with battle scars, earned throughout its years of hard use. Much like a vintage leather jacket or rare antique furnishings, it immediately feels comfortable and sets a tone unlike anything brand new, right off the shelf. It’s this idea that inspired the new Ibanez Artcore Vintage Series.
