Thin Maple Archtop Body
Constructed from an all maple body, the Artcore guitar produces a focused tone with an impressive sustain and character. With a clear and defined upper middle, and a high end that sparkles, the maple body is ideal for chiming chords and super bright lead patterns and also delivers a balanced low response. The thin archtop design delivers traditional jazz tones with an excellent midrange that compliments your playing, while the thin design makes the Ibanez an incredibly comfortable guitar to play.
Mahogany Neck, Rosewood Fingerboard
The 3-piece Mahogany neck and Rosewood fingerboard has been designed to offer a smooth, fast play, whilst the naturally oily Rosewood fingerboard absorbs stray overtones for a rich sound. The Mahogany/Rosewood combination produces warm, mellow tones with complex highs, thick, creamy lows, and an appealing midrange. The Artcore also features 22 medium sized frets, a bone nut, and acrylic block inlays to provide a classic look and a smooth play.
ART-2 Roller Bridge, Vintage Vibrato Tailpiece
Incorporating an ART-2 roller bridge system with vintage vibrato tailpiece, the Ibanez AFS73T can produce a range of country, blues and rockabilly accents and tremolo nuances. Unlike traditional vintage vibrato systems, the use of a roller bridge reduces the tuning problems experienced with older vibrato systems, improving the guitar’s ability to retain tunings.
About Ibanez Guitars
Over the past 30 years, Ibanez Guitars have always been at the forefront of developing the right tools for Electric Guitar players pushing the boundaries of music. For decades, Ibanez designers and luthiers have been the embodiment of this ideology, pushing their skills to the edge of imagination, consistently creating some of the most versatile and unique instruments ever. Although Ibanez guitars have been made since 1908, it wasn't until the late 1980's that they began to form an identity for themselves when artists such as Steve Vai and Frank Zappa began using their instruments. Now with a huge artist clientele across the globe Ibanez are a leading manufacturer of electric guitars and basses and a first choice for many dedicated musicians.
