Lurking beneath its aged looking facade and smoky low gloss finish is a single cutaway hollow body that can handle anything from Jazz standards to country and western. The AFV10A features a select-grade Maple hollow body that creates a rich, warm, deep-voiced tone. Its Artcore Vintage mahogany neck, proven on literally thousands of Ibanez guitars over the years, features a bound rosewood fretboard with warm aged block inlays and is joined to the body at the 14th fret for comfortable access to higher notes. The AFV10A also sports an Art Deco-style tailpiece, which complements the instrument’s nostalgic character. Classic Elite pickups offer warm, ultra-responsive tone with moderate output.

There’s something enticing about the look of an older, vintage guitar—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.
