With a pair of warmly voiced humbuckers, set three-piece mahogany/maple neck, and completely hollow bubinga body, the Ibanez Artcore AG95 Hollow Body calls back to the days of classic jazz guitar without the vintage price. Bubinga, known for its low-end presence and figured beauty, is used throughout the body and finished in a sedate Dark Brown Sunburst which finds a supporting cast in features like a throwback trapeze tailpiece and antique f-holes. Classic quality in a modern package.
For a decade now, Ibanez has continued to energize the hollow-body segment with wide range of designs’with everything from rockin’ hybrids to straight-up jazz-boxes. The new Expressionist line begins yet another chapter in the Artcore story.The Expressionist difference? Jazz fans will recognize the Ibanez original Super 58 custom pickups’ the preferred pickup of George Benson, Pat Metheny and John Scofield on their own Signature models. A jazz favourite, yes, but as funk guitarist Eric Krasno has been proving, the Super 58s perform well in a variety of situations. Warm, balanced articulation, and excellent response characterize the Super 58 custom.IBANEZ AG95 FEATURES:Neck type: Expressionist 3pc Mahogany/Maple set-in neckBody: Figured Bubinga top/back/sidesFretboard: Bound Rosewood fretboard w/Pearl block inlayFrets: Medium fretsNumber of frets: 22 fretsBridge: ART-1 bridgeTailpiece: VT06 tailpieceNeck pickup: Super 58 custom (H) neck pu (Passive/Alnico)Bridge pickup: Super 58 custom (H) bridge pu (Passive/Alnico)Hardware colour: Gold
