Ibanez AF95BS AF Artcore Series Hollow Body Electric Guitar, Brown Sunburst

Hollowbody Electric Guitar with Spruce Top, Linden Back and Sides, Nyatoh/Maple Neck, Ebony Fingerboard, and 2 Humbucking Pickups – Brown Sunburst

This Artcore Expressionist Plays Like a Dream

If you want a hollowbody electric guitar with classic looks and premium modern touches — all for a song — then take a good look at the Ibanez Artcore Expressionist AF95. This beautiful instrument exudes an elegant, old-school vibe while delivering state-of-the-art playability and tonal expressiveness. The AF95 features a fast 3-piece nyatoh/maple set neck and a gorgeous linden back and sides, plus a price top with vintage-style F-holes. Your fingers will fly across the AF95’s silky-smooth bound ebony fingerboard. Loaded with a pair of Super 58 humbuckers, the Ibanez AF95 is a jazz box that’s ready for any musical adventure.

Classic hollowbody design with premium tonewoods

True to form, the Ibanez AF95 is completely hollow. Its back and sides are made of sonically lively linden and visually stunning spruce. A set-in nyatoh/maple neck and bound ebony fretboard contribute to the excellent playability of the AF95. String vibrations are transferred faithfully from the walnut bridge to the carved spruce top for optimal sound. At every point in the Ibanez AF95 build process, premium tonewoods are used to create the best-sounding guitar possible.

Sweet, singing Super 58 humbuckers

Ibanez Super 58 humbucking pickups deliver warm, balanced tone with excellent articulation. They’re beautifully responsive to your pick attack and guitar’s volume control, serving up a mellifluous tonal range that not only works brilliantly for jazz, but for many other musical styles as well. The original Super 58 was the pickup of choice for jazz heavies such as Pat Metheny, George Benson, and John Scofield for their own Ibanez signature models. But as guitarist Eric Krasno has proven with his bands Soulive and Lettuce, Super 58 pickups are star performers in any genre.

Fat hollowbody tone for any gig

Hollowbody guitars like the AF95 are used cross-genre in jazz, rockabilly, and many other styles of music. Hollowbodies have even been deployed in rock, fusion, and country settings.

Ibanez: a brief history

Ibanez began its life in 1908 as the Hoshino Gakki company in Nagoya, Japan. However, the company didn’t get into the guitar business until 1929, when they started importing Salvador Ibanez guitars from Spain. In 1935, Hoshino Gakki began building Spanish acoustic guitars under the Ibanez Salvador name, which was later shortened to Ibanez. Although Ibanez began manufacturing electric guitars in 1957, the company was relatively unknown in the West until the 1960s, when they started producing guitars based on American designs. By the late 1970s, Ibanez stopped producing derivative guitars and began manufacturing the original designs that the company is now known for. Ibanez is also famous for their effects pedals (most notably the Tube Screamer) and guitar amplifiers.
