"Extraordinary Jazz guitar for little dollars"
Sound: This is a really good jazz guitar. Yes, it does make other sounds but I bought it to play jazz on and it can make a beautiful Jim Hall sort of sound if you want it to. If you do the seventies sort of Benson 'Affirmation' stuff it play that well. The best tip I could give is 'learn to play properly. I can't fault the sound of this thing, I'm pretty shocked that an Asian guitar can sound so good, nothing personal, I've always owned Gibsons and this actually sounds as good as. Feature: If you want to know about the features read the ads. Here's what they don't say...the body is not as deep as a decent jazz guitar. This was a bit weird for the first few days. But it still manages to produce a decent sound. I guess if I changed any of the components I'd give it a spruce top. The timbers are nice though and it looks very good. I might swap the saddle, it looks a bit clunky. The tail piece looks ok but probably is a bit overdone but I'm really being fussy here. Ease of Use: The only learning curve is about 30 years of practice, then it'll play itself and do as you ask. It plays so easily. It feels like the scale of the neck is a touch shorter than some other guitars and the fretboard curve is very minute..for me that's perfect. I'm astounded how a cheap guitar can play better than all the other guitars I've ever owned. Quality: They've gone to a lot of trouble to make this guitar look and feel like the real thing. Even the nut has been rounded a bit at the top (high) E string, some other Artcores and Corts are a bit pointy at the nut (these Artcores comes from the Cort factory ??? ...the Corts are surprising guitars...check em out if you need a cheapie) Value: Ridiculous price for a good instrument Manufacturer Support: Not needed The Wow Factor: Looks good and plays right Overall: If I had the dollars, I'd go and buy a handful of other artcore semi acoustics
Style of Music: Jazz chordal solos and Jim Hall sort of lines

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "WOW!!!"
Sound: In a word "creamy". With the right amp and effects (a little chorus and reverb) it sings like an angel. Feature: I first feel in love with the looks... I'm sometimes shallow. Wasn't planning to buy but had to try... once my wife heard it, the buying was her idea. the appointments are serious. Ease of Use: New strings and very little tweaking and she's dealed in beautifully. I'm using XL blues / jazz .011's on this one. Quality: If I were asked to guess a price not knowing it was an Artcore (if they hid the lightning bolt, I would have guess more than twice the price. Value: I'm sure Ibanez could get more if the wished too. I'm glad they don't. Manufacturer Support: Third Ibanez in 10 years and never needed support. Can't say that about my Gibsons... sorry. The Wow Factor: At first, there were some things i thought were cheezy, like the inlay (which my wife loved from the start). After spending just an afternoon after setting it up, I'm just in love. Overall: I own several... let's say 8 high end pieces (L.P. Elegant, PRS custom, American Deluxe Strat... among others. I have been playing an Artcore AM73 most of the time. I think between the 73 and 105, I be pretty much an Ibanez kind of guy.
Style of Music: Christian rock/blues/jazz/ P&W

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
