There’s something enticing about the look of an older,vintage guitar—well- worn with battle scars earned throughout its years of harduse. Much like a favorite leather jacket or rare antique furnishings, a vintageguitar immediately feels comfortable and sets a tone unlike anything brand newor right off the shelf. It’s this idea that inspired the Ibanez Artcore VintageSeries.
Lurking beneath the AFV75’s aged facade and smoky, low gloss finish is a singlecutaway hollow body that can handle anything from jazz standards to country andwestern. The AFV75 features a select-grade Linden hollow body that creates arich, warm, deep-voiced tone. The neck features a bound Laurel fretboard withblock inlays and is joined to the body at the 14th fret for comfortable accessto higher notes. The AFV75 also sports an Art Deco-style tailpiece, whichcomplements the instrument’s nostalgic character. Classic Elite pickups offerwarm, ultra-responsive tone with moderate output.
