Cross Boundaries with this Super-Versatile Ibanez Hollowbody!

With the Artstar AF155 full hollowbody electric guitar, Ibanez offers you a tone machine with a stunning flame maple top, bottom, and sides. Lovers of jazz and blues will fall for this guitar's resonance and sustain, thanks to its three-piece set-in mahogany neck, rosewood bridge, and bone nut headstock. To top it off, the Artstar AF155 comes stock with two Super 58 Custom humbuckers fit to capture its full sound.

Learn more about the Artstar AF155:


Rich and Vibrant Genre-Crossing Sound

While ideal for jazz or blues, the Artstar AF155 is a hard instrument to pigeonhole into one genre. The resonance of the hollow maple body will create that immediately recognizable classic jazzy sound, but the smooth ebony bound neck and comfortable action akin to most Ibanez necks will also suit the guitarist who enjoys fast runs up and down the fretboard. Whether you're into blues, jazz, rock, or pop, this guitar will deliver fat lows and bright biting highs for full chords and speedy licks.

Classic Body Design and Set Neck for Rich Resonance

The maple hollowbody will keep your sustained notes resonating throughout your chord changes and licks, creating a smooth and fluid sound that you can hear and feel. The three-piece mahogany set-in neck will capture the warmth and fullness of your playing and transfer it over freely and immediately to the acoustic resonance of the rich hollowbody, as opposed to a bolt-on neck, which can tend to have more twang and snap.

Stock with Super 58 Custom Humbuckers and Dual Volume and Tone Control

Topping off its rich sound, the Artstar AF155 comes stock with Super 58 Custom humbuckers to capture the full spectrum of your playing without any unwanted hum or noise. A common issue with early hollowbody guitars was a noticeable unwanted low-end hum or pitch. The custom design of the two Super 58s will maintain the guitar's bite and fat lows while cutting any noticeable hum or unwanted low-end noise. Dial in the sound of your Super 58 Customs with dual volume and dual tone control knobs with a three-setting switch. The Artstar AF155's electronics enable you to achieve a range of tones and playing styles, and really help you get the most versatility out of a single piece of equipment.

Features:

- Full hollowbody guitar with flame maple wood back, sides, and top
- Two Super 58 Custom humbuckers
- Dual tone control and dual volume knobs with a three-setting pickup switch
- Ebony bound smooth fretboard with comfortable action
- Mahogany three-piece set-in neck
- Great for jazz, blues, rock, and many other musical styles
- Urethane body finish
- Rosewood bridge
- Bone nut headstock
- Gold tuners
- Hardshell case included

While this guitar will fulfill expectations for the experienced player, the Artstar AF155 is a perfect place to start if you are new to the world of full hollowbody electric guitars. You'll be able to explore the world of classic jazzy and bluesy tones, while expanding your playing into a genre-crossing style. This instrument is a great fit for the guitar player looking to traverse a diverse spectrum of sonic possibilities.

Product Description

With its aged whiskey burst finish and flamed maple top, back, and sides, the love of jazz history emanates from the Ibanez AF155. The bound Ebony fingerboard sports medium frets with edges that are noticeably smooth to a sliding hand, the product of a skilled crimping technique generally found on instruments costing twice as much. The neck construction is set-in, the bridge is made of rosewood, and at the headstock end is a bone nut. As for the pickups, they're no other than Ibanez's famous Super 58 Customs -- known for their balanced tone character as well as their sonic fullness. Whether restrained to "jazz-clean" or cranked up to "rockin' blues dirty," the Super 58 Custom gets the job done. Hardshell case included.

Ibanez calls their new Artstar models, "Hollow bodies of the highest order." As the guitar builder for some of the brightest luminaries of modern jazz guitar, Ibanez has paved some middle ground between their upscale signature models and their popular Artcore series.
