This Artcore Expressionist Plays Like a Dream
If you want a hollow-body electric guitar with classic looks and premium modern touches — all for a song — then take a good look at the Ibanez Artcore Expressionist AF95. This beautiful instrument exudes an elegant, old-school vibe while delivering state-of-the-art playability and tonal expressiveness. The AF95 features a fast 3-piece nyatoh/maple set neck and a gorgeous linden back and sides, plus a price top with vintage-style F-holes. Your fingers will fly across the AF95’s silky-smooth bound ebony fingerboard. Loaded with a pair of Super 58 humbuckers, the Ibanez AF95 is a jazz box that’s ready for any musical adventure.
Classic hollow-body design with premium tonewoods
True to form, the Ibanez AF95 is completely hollow. Its back and sides are made of sonically lively linden and visually stunning spruce. A set-in nyatoh/maple neck and bound ebony fretboard contribute to the excellent playability of the AF95. String vibrations are transferred faithfully from the walnut bridge to the carved spruce top for optimal sound. At every point in the Ibanez AF95 build process, premium tonewoods are used to create the best-sounding guitar possible.
Sweet, singing Super 58 humbuckers
Ibanez Super 58 humbucking pickups deliver warm, balanced tone with excellent articulation. They’re beautifully responsive to your pick attack and guitar’s volume control, serving up a mellifluous tonal range that not only works brilliantly for jazz, but for many other musical styles as well. The original Super 58 was the pickup of choice for jazz heavies such as Pat Metheny, George Benson, and John Scofield for their own Ibanez signature models. But as guitarist Eric Krasno has proven with his bands Soulive and Lettuce, Super 58 pickups are star performers in any genre.
