Ibanez AG85 Artcore Hollowbody Guitar

The AG85 features a select-grade Linden hollow body, a set-in Nyatoh/Maple neck and Ebony fretboard. These elements contribute to the warm-sounding characteristics of the AG85.

The Ibanez custom made "Magic Touch-Mini" humbucker pickups provide a balance of classic tones and clear articulation on both the top and bottom of the sound spectrum. Players can enjoy the clean response on the top end, presenting fast melodies or complex chord progressions with clarity and precision. The bottom end also has a deep warm and rich classic sound, but with a clarity specially adjusted to help avoid muddy low end tones. This tonal balance is complimented by the pickups' extra sensitivity that clearly captures and accentuates a player's pick attack and plucking style, opening the possibilities of a wide range of playing techniques.

Thanks to a floating mount, the "Magic Touch-Mini" pickups do not dampen the guitars natural body vibration, thus allowing a bigger, richer acoustic tone. Sure Grip III knobs enable non-slip functionality and Gibraltar Performer bridge provides improved sustain and tuning stability.

As evidenced by our long-standing association with jazz guitar giants such as George Benson, Pat Metheny and John Scofield, Ibanez has been a constant pioneer in the world of hollow-body guitar building for more than three decades. Part of that esteemed legacy is due to the Artcore collection, which succeeded in smashing all preconceptions as to what a great hollow or semi-hollow-body guitar ought to be. The Artcore formula builds on equal parts luthiery know-how, daring design and a passion for warm, full-bodied tone.

Customer Reviews
Rate and Review This Product
This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful.
Sound: It has a great sound and plenty of room to adjust with 2 pickups that have separate tone and volume controls. Feature: Personally I love the pick guard. The wood is unbelievable. By far the most beautiful guitar I've ever seen. The layout of this guitar feels really good to me. I like the way it isn't too thick and the neck feels great. Quality: For the price, you're getting one hell of a well crafted guitar. The finish is flawless and I expect to be playing this when I'm 100 years old and rocking out in a rest home!! Value: Buy it, buy it now! Manufacturer Support: Haven't needed any so until I learn otherwise, 10. The Wow Factor: People will freak out when they see it!! Overall: Ibanez has been around forever and it shows. This is a keeper.
Style of Music: Country and all kinds of rock

Thank you. Your vote has been counted. Could you briefly tell us why the review was or was not helpful?

Sound: this is my first venture into electric - I own a variety of acoustics, including an '04 Taylor 410. I am thrilled with the sound, although, to be honest, I really don't know any better. It projects well, sounds awesome plugged in, and does the mellow crunch blues that I like. Feature: Great - the pickups are a work of art; well crafted and sound great. The control knobs are smooth, as is the fret board, although, it seems a bit shorter than most other electrics. More like an acoustic. Quality: This is a georgeous guitar in real life. The wood grain couldn't look better under that red glaze. I have received so many compliments on the look, sound, and design of this guitar. And I've only owned it a week. The only thing I think is a bit corny is the head stock. Ibanez crafted this awesome guitar, and this stuck an acoustic style headstock on it (it looks bulky, although the tuners are nice) and then emblazened it's label all over it with some lightning bolt design. I could've passed on that. Otherwise, great guit. Value: I played the gibson ES-175, ES-333, and The Epiphone Dot. Tone was better (in my humble opinion) than the Gib. It also looks a hell of a lot better than those other three guitars. Finally, the sound and craftsmanship are what you'd expect out of the gibson (or name another expensive guitar), with a much better price tag. Manufacturer Support: NA The Wow Factor: read above - beautiful.
