An expertly crafted 3pc Maple/ Mahogany set-in neck ensures body liveliness and is fitted with a rich Ebony fretboard with silky contrasting pearl block inlays.

Jazz fans will recognize the Ibanez original Super 58 Custom pickups—the preferred pickup of George Benson, Pat Metheny, and John Scofield used in their own signature models. These pickups provide warm, balanced articulation, and excellent response. Super 58s are at home in variety of genres.

For a decade now, Ibanez has energized the hollow-body segment with a wide range of designs—from rockin’ hybrids to straight-up jazz-boxes. With the introduction of its new Expressionist line, Ibanez has begun yet another chapter in the story of its acclaimed Artcore series.

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.

First of all, this guitar looks incredible in person. The pictures online just don't do it justice at all. Stunning finish! I got this guitar after months of researching and looking for the right fit. I tested a couple of the D'Angelico Premier Mini DCs, but those did not come near this one in quality. I got the 2021 model with the smaller "castle" headstock, which in my opinion looks better than the big "Round-Top" from the last couple of years' models. The build quality is amazing. There are zero flaws. There was no fret buzz out of the box, and the neck is smooth. It's got a much fatter neck than I'm used to on my Strat, Tele and ESP LP, but it is pretty comfortable and I'm getting used to it fast. This has become my favorite guitar to play, and record with. It stays in tune very nicely, so no complains on the tuners. This is a semi-hollow, unlike the new 2021 AMH90 which is a full hollow body.As far as the sound, I did find the neck pickups to be bland and a bit muddy, especially when playing the open 6th string with other strings. The one thing I wish this had was coil-splitting like the AMH90, since this is a much prettier guitar. The pickups on this were 2 conductor, so I ended-up replacing them with some Seymour Duncans (Seth Lover on the Neck & Pearly Gates on the Bridge) and replacing the tone knobs for push/pull switches for coil splitting, and that opened up a whole world of possibilities.Overall, this is a really nice guitar. Certainly nicer than most guitars in read more the same price range and even more. So I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking to get into the Semi-Hollow game.
