Product Description

The Ibanez AFJ957VSB Artcore Express features a Spruce top with Flamed Maple back and sides, as well as a handsome clean white binding on body, headstock, and fingerboard. Carefully crafted set-in neck construction ensures body liveliness. The fretboard is a rich looking Rosewood contrasted by pearl block inlays. Its 3-piece Maple/Mahogany neck has proven its reliability through the years on numerous Ibanez hollow and semi-hollow models.

As the guitar builder that pioneered and perfected the seven-string, the AFJ957VSB is a natural for Ibanez. The Artcore Custom-7s are Ibanez proprietary pickups designed specifically for this model and are capable of translating the full range of this seven-string in its full color.

For a decade now, Ibanez has energized the hollow-body segment with a wide range of designs-with everything from rockin' hybrids to traditional jazz-boxes. The Expressionist line begins yet another chapter in the Artcore story. Built with tone woods selected for their beauty as well as their musicality, the Expressionist line covers the wide range of styles for which Ibanez hollow and semi-hollow bodies are known.

zZounds is an authorized dealer of Ibanez products.

Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (2 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Great guitar"
Overall: I love this guitar. Beautiful dark tone and a wonderful, very solid neck. Ibanez builds really nice jazz guitars at affordable prices. Love the extended harmonic range of the 7th string (low B). Perfect for solo guitar or backing a vocalist.
Style of Music: Primarily jazz, but I've played pretty much everything at one point or the other.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Ultimate Online Shopping"
Overall: Zzsounds is by far one of the most prestine online musical instruments retailers. I've had friends and family telling me details about the site. I figured I'd give it a shot and needless to say it was more than a pleasurable experience. I'd purchased equipment I've needed and wanted for years for a small down payment which was affordable and convenient. Now my band and musical capabilities are that much closer to our success with much appreciation to zzsounds. Not only will I be a returning customer but I will also be praising and thanking all of the staff for my wonderful experience. Once again I could not thank you more for this opportunity and I pray each and every member of staff have a beautiful Christmas and an absolutely happy new year as to you have all given it to me.
Style of Music: Death Metal, Grindcore, Mathcore, Indie, Jazz Fusion and Drum n' Bass,

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.
