Product Description

The AFC95 is the benchmark of the Artcore full-hollow bodies. The 15.75 inch body produces rich and complex tones which make the AFC95 the guitar of choice for the purist in all of us.

The AFC95 features a larger headstock design, 3-piece Mahogany/ Maple set-in neck and a bound Ebony fretboard for smooth articulation. It's built with a selected Spruce top, Flamed Maple back and sides to provide its stylish appearance and balanced tone, and with the addition of plywood top, helps to avoid unnecessary feedback. The rock solid Ebony compensated bridge give the output a clear intonation, longer sustain and acoustic resonance.

The AFC95 comes with the Ibanez custom made “Magic Touch-Mini” humbucker pickups, providing a balance of classic tones, alongside clear articulation on both the top and bottom of the sound spectrum. Players can enjoy the clean response on the top end, presenting fast melodies or complex chord progressions with clarity and precision. The bottom end also has a deep warm and rich classic sound, but with a clarity specially adjusted to help avoid muddy low end tones. This tonal balance is complimented by the pickups’ extra sensitivity that clearly captures and accentuates the players pick attack and plucking style opening the possibilities of a wide range of playing techniques. Thanks to floating mount, the “Magic Touch-Mini” pickups do not dampen the guitars natural body vibration, thus allowing a bigger richer acoustic tone. These are all complimented by the newly designed pickguard, tailpiece cover and wooden control knobs.

For many decades, Ibanez has been re-energizing the hollow body world with a wide variety of original designs, unrivaled playability and polished tones. By closely working with many legendary artists Ibanez is constantly striving to experiment, innovate and deliver. This enthusiasm for exploration has led to the Contemporary Archtop series, customized specifically to meet the demands of today’s cutting edge players.

A Nice Instrument With A Few Disappointments

What is your opinion of this product?
I got the Natural flat finish and overall I like the guitar. I pick it up every chance I get. The sound is a bit "tinny" unplugged but projects well. Plugged in it sounds great but the bridge pickup has less output than the neck pickup. Speaking of the neck, it's fast and smooth and feels great to play. The guitar also looks much nicer in person than the pictures. Definitely lends to the "Contemporary" label. Three things that have nothing to do with how the guitar sounds or plays do take away from the "Contemporary" look that drew me to this guitar in the first place. First the nut on my guitar is white. Second the tailpiece cover is listed as AFC Wood but it looks plastic to me, like the exact same plastic used for the pickguard. Combining these two things with the flat (non-gloss) finish gives the guitar the look of a very budget instrument. None of this reflects on AMS however. Box was factory sealed and AMS has a 45 day return policy. But I'm keeping it.
