The Ibanez AF55 Artcore Hollowbody Electric Guitar sets the standard for Ibanez full-hollowbody design. Their long standing partnership with jazz greats such as George Benson and Pat Metheny has resulted in pioneering advancements in the world of hollowbody guitar building. The AF55 with its choice selection of tonewoods, high-quality appointments, and superb electronics continues that tradition of daring design and passion for tone.
Single Cutaway Hollowbody
The AF55 is an instrument of incredible beauty, both in looks and tone. Thanks to the robust linden body the AF55 produces complex tones with the greatest of ease. A robust mid to low-end ensures a solid sonic delivery, that is countered by the lilting upper-mids to crisp highs. The body shape is comfortable and accommodating, making playing the AF55 a joy to play.
Mahogany Set Neck
A dense set-in mahogany neck - shaped to the Artcore AF design - creates a sturdy yet supple support for the strings allowing them the most appropriate surface along which to resonate. The bound Indian laurel fretboard ensures that the upper register is softly rounded so that high tones retain clarity at high levels without becoming too sharp on the ear. The slim profile feels natural in the hand and responds well to a wide range of playing styles.
Infinity R Pickups
Two Infinity R humbuckers are fitted in the neck and bridge position, a combination that is perfect towards a wide variety of musical styles. Rather than producing a tone unto themselves, they represent the sound produced by the luxurious tonewoods as accurately as possible resulting in huge sound and balanced output.
High Quality Hardware
String and tuning integrity is supported by the ART-ST bridge and VT06S tailpiece resulting in optimal tuning stability whether you're practicing in your room or performing on stage. The chrome hardware complements the Transparent Black Finish combining utility with good looks.
