Bound rosewood fretboard with 22 large frets, bound top, and bound f-holes provide lush looks accented by the sunburst pickguard that matches the body and mother-of-pearl/abalone block inlays. Flamed maple back and sides, set mahogany neck, and gold hardware.

    Comments about Ibanez Artcore AF95 Electric Guitar:

    For the sound i was looking for, the guitar is it. Smooth jazz sound. I've been playing for over 40 years and have been through many guitars, gibsons, fenders prs, and a few others. So i will start there. Gibsons have a great sound, but the necks are like a telephone pole, love the fender double radius necks, but the single coils don't deliver the sound i want.
    The neck on the ibanez is not the slim fender, but not the gibson pole. It is just about right for the small hands i have. Four fret chords are not a problem.
    Neck pickup gives that great old smooth jazz sound. The middle has a straight clear rock tone. While the bridge is not the tele twang, it has a nice rock-a-billy crunch.
    If you have lots of money and like playing a telephone pole buy an ES 175, If you want a guitar with a great jazz sound and at a reasonable price get the ibanez 95.
    Down side: the strings that come on them are sorry, 9 round wounds . Order some Galli flat wounds at the same time. Also order a case, the ones sitting around the house won't work.
    Music 123: Great company. Get my orders all the way to Texas in no more than 4 days. I have used Guitar center,and Musician friend . Thought my orders would rust before it got here. Hope this helps Mike

    Comments about Ibanez Artcore AF95 Electric Guitar:

    I've owned this guitar for over a year now, and consider it money well-spent. If I'm not mistaken, Ibanez discontinued this model for a while, then brought it back -- I could be wrong, but it was unavailable online for a long time. It's a true hollow-body: no support blocks inside to mess up your jazz tones. Beautiful guitar, too -- the picture here doesn't do it justice; it's transparent black and looks brown in some lighting. Sounds great, plays great, with round or flat-wound strings, blues or jazz or about anything else. The neck is bigger than the Epiphone Joe Pass models -- not huge, but with a bit of heft, as arch-tops traditionally have had. I'd have liked a slimmer neck, as I have small hands, but in the heat of playing, I forget all about it. If you want a real, honest-to-goodness jazz box, gorgeous and fiery and VERY FUN to play, but you don't want to spend three grand on a Gibson 175, give this one a try. It's worth every penny. Get yourself a hard shell case, too -- the Artcores are a unique shape and probably won't fit in generic archtop cases.
