Ibanez Archtop Electrics - AFS75
At any price range, you just can't deny that this Ibanez AFS75 flat out rocks. The Bigsby style tremolo stays in tune exceptionally well and the pickups are rich and musical. I absolutely love holding out overdriven chords with this guitar while shaking in just the right amount of feedback with the trem bar in front of my amp.
Pushing traditional concepts one step further, this Ibanez Artcore has the same shape and full-hollow body of the AF. For increased comfort and more midrange punch, the body depth is one inch thinner. An Ibanez Vintage Vibrato is also mounted on the body with roller saddles, eliminating the tuning problems of traditional systems. The Ibanez AFS75 sounds beautiful and is very affordable. Case not included, but check out the Ibanez AS100C Case.
