For a decade now, Ibanez has energized hollow-body guitar fans with a wide range of designs—from rockin’ hybrids to straight-up jazz-boxes. With the introduction of its Expressionist line, Ibanez has begun yet another chapter in the story of the acclaimed Artcore series.
Built with tone woods selected for their beauty as well as their musicality, the Expressionist semi-hollow models are perfect for a wide range of styles, from jazz and blues to rock and folk.
The Ibanez AS93ZW Artcore Expressionist features Zebrawood top, back and sides; clean, handsome white binding on body, headstock, and fretboard; and expertly crafted set-in neck construction to ensure maximum body resonance. The rich Ebony fretboard with contrasting white block inlays sits on a set-in neck that has proven its reliability on thousands of Ibanez hollow and semi-hollow bodies throughout the years.
Jazz fans will recognize the original Ibanez Super 58 pickups—the preferred pickup of George Benson, Pat Metheny, and John Scofield for their own Signature models. Ibanez Super 58 pickups, known for their warm, balanced articulation and excellent response, are equally at home in a variety of genres.
