Ibanez AF75T Artcore Hollowbody Electric Guitar w/ VibratoIbanez
As evidenced by its long-standing association with such giants of jazz guitar as George Benson, Pat Metheny, and John Scofield, Ibanez has been a constant pioneer in the world of hollow-body guitar building for more than three decades. Part of that legacy is owed to the Artcore collection, which has succeeded in smashing any and all preconceptions in its wake as to what a great hollow or semi-hollow ought to be. The Artcore formula builds on equal parts luthiery know-how, daring design, and a passion for warm, full-bodied tone.
The AF75T features a select-grade maple top, back, and sides. The fretboard is warm, bound Rosewood, contrasted by brilliant acrylic block inlays. The Artcore Mahogany neck has proven its reliability on thousands of Ibanez hollow and semi-hollow bodies throughout the years. The old school Vintage vibrato adds country and rockabilly nuances to the rich tone of a full-hollow guitar, but eliminates “old school” tuning problems using 21st century roller saddles. Ibanez designed the Classic Elite pickups to give you big, full tone and well-balanced output.
Condition: When this guitar came in from the factory, the only issue found by the authorized refurbisher was a few light finish scratches on the back of the body (which do not show up in photos). No repairs or modifications were made to the guitar - they simply gave it a set-up and left it alone. Aside from the light finish scratches, the guitar looks mint. When we received the guitar, we set the action at the 12th fret to a low and fast 3/64" (bass side) and 2/64" (treble side). Guitar plays great with this low-action set-up! Electronics and vibrato are in perfect working order. Back of the headstock is NOT stamped "used", but the original serial # has been replaced with a new one.

About our set-ups: We do our best to accurately describe the current set-up and playability of each guitar. However, due to temperature and humidity changes the guitar may experience while in transit, it's possible for the neck and body to slightly "adjust" along the way. After all, guitars are primarily wooden instruments that are highly susceptible to their environment. By the time you receive the guitar, un-box it and tune it up, you may find that it needs a slight adjustment to get it back to the set-up specs that we originally described in our listing. Please keep this in mind before purchasing.
