Hollow Artist Series Guitar
The Ibanez AR520 is built for players who love the look of an Ibanez solidbody but want to add a dash of hollowbody character to their signal. This guitar has a chambered maple/okoume body with a carved maple top. Two Super 58 Custom humbuckers with Tri-sound electronics give the Ibanez AR520 undeniable tonal tenacity; the hollowbody construction adds an airy quality, yielding a sound that guitarists here simply can't get enough of. The Ibanez AR520 also features a Gibraltar Performer bridge and Quik Change Ultra tailpiece, providing long sustain and tuning stability. Plus, the 3-piece maple neck and nearly non-existent neck heel offer supreme playing comfort.
Okoume and maple deliver standout tone
The right tonewoods will set the stage for how a guitar sounds when it's plugged in. And for the AR520, Ibanez used okoume and maple to great effect. The okoume's sustain and sonic complexity pairs perfectly with maple's brisk high-end. The hollowbody construction garnishes the rich sonic cocktail by adding an airy feel, resulting in a powerful sound that can serve up soulful licks or biting riffs when you match it up with the amplifier of your choice.
