The Ibanez AFB Artcore Vintage Electric Bass Guitar hails from the wonderful Artcore Bass series and the AFBV200A is another great addition to this range. When Ibanez designed the Artcore range, they decided to try and incorporate features of both a solid body electric bass alongside the acoustic timbre that a hollow body bass can produce. The AFBV200A successfully combines these two worlds of sound beautifully.
The Ibanez AFBV200A bass body is constructed entirely from maple tonewood thanks to its ability to produce a range of bright, articulate tones with absolute clarity. As with Artcore bass guitars, this model has a hollow body design which is striking on the eye yet also contributes immensely to the overall bass tone. The natural, wooden finish in Tobacco Low Gloss makes this model stand out from the rest owing to all the beautiful grains that grace the body of the guitar.
The AFB Artcore Vintage electric bass guitar is fitted with a short scale set-in neck as this improves low end resonance while also feeling ultimately comfortable to play. The neck scale is 30.3 inches, and is married up with a bound rosewood fingerboard. There are 22 frets at your disposal, and once you begin to play you won’t want to stop.
HARDWARE AND FINISH
The AFB200VA is fitted with Classic Elite Bass pickups which equip you with a wealth of full-bodied tones that will fill the room during a performance. The pickups translate the warmth produced by the maple hollow body which sounds stunning through an amplifier.
The Volume and Tone controls have Sure Grip III Knobs in Honey Gold which prevent slipping when you’re adjusting your sound. A pickup selector switch sits just below the controls for you to alternate between neck and bridge pickups.
The ART-1 wooden bridge maintains a strong connection with each bass string and the body while also improving the more acoustic-sounding tones you can make with this amazing bass guitar. The Tobacco Low Gloss finish of the bass is complemented by antique chrome hardware.
The Ibanez AFB200VA Artcore Vintage model is an exquisite bass guitar that anyone can enjoy, whether your preference is electric or acoustic, this successfully combines the two.
