Lurking beneath the aged looking façade, the AMV10A is a sophisticated semi-hollow that can easily handle almost any musical challenge imaginable. The AMV10A features a select-grade maple, smaller semi-hollow body that merges a scooped, airy tone with the presence and sustain of a solid body.
The Artcore Vintage mahogany neck, proven on literally thousands of Ibanez guitars over the years, features a bound rosewood fretboard with warm aged white block inlays, and is joined to the body at the 17th fret for comfortable access to higher notes.
Mounted into the center block for increased sustain and feedback elimination—Ibanez Classic Elite pickups offer warm, ultra-responsive tone with moderate output that allow the AMV10A to venture well beyond the realm of most other semi-hollow guitars. The AMV10A features a smoky, low gloss finish.
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.
