AR Series Solidbody
The AR725-VLS is crafted from mahogany, which establishes a warm timbre that is infused with a lengthy sustain. Paired with the mahogany is a sublime maple top that is finished in a gorgeous violin sunburst, with protection assured by an ornate pickguard below the pickups. The body profile is shaped with a pair of cutaways at the neck joint, to facilitate greater access to the upper frets. The bevelled edges around the top makes the body surface smooth and without any cumbersome obstructions, so your picking arm can move with absolute freedom. Not only does this beauty look gorgeous, but it plays like a dream too.
AR Series Neck
The set-in three-piece maple neck contributes to the guitar's sustain by transferring the resonant energy of the strings to the body with the utmost efficiency. The AR neck profile plays fast, whilst the smooth neck heel allows the guitar to sit closer to your body during performances, creating an accommodating playing position. Married to the neck is a bound ebony fingerboard, which has been treated to custom fret edge treatment to ensure smooth transitions along its entire length. The classic "old banjo" fingerboard inlay design complements the vintage style of this model perfectly.
Super 80 "Flying Finger" pickups
A pair of Super 80 pickups - fitted at the neck and bridge positions - offers a classic high-output tone with plenty of sparkle. They represent the excellent tonewood selection perfectly, with plenty of brightness and clarity whether played at low or high volume levels.
Control over the tone is simple but precise; each pickup has an individual volume and tone control that puts all the power at your fingertips. The three-way pickup selector switch allows you to pull individually from each pickup or mix-up a combination of the two. No matter what style of music you play, the AR725-VLS is more than capable of delivering exceptional tones with unwavering reliability.
The beautiful Violin Sunburst finish is accentuated by the gold hardware, with "Flying Finger" designs adorning each pickup cover. Fitted to the body are an ART-1 bridge and Quik-Change III tailpiece, which ensure that the strings' connection to the body is as secure as can be, optimising intonation and sustain throughout each and every performance.
The Ibanez AR725-VLS Solidbody Electric Guitar in Violin Sunburst comes with its very own hardshell case, so that your new pride and joy is well protected at home or on the move.
