        Easily affordable and playable.

        The first single-cutaway Artist in 30 years, the Ibanez ART2100 Artist guitar is an affordable, old-school-style solidbody with top-of-the-bill features. The contoured mahogany body has a mahogany set neck for excellent resonance. The Artcore ACH1-S and ACH2-S humbuckers filter out interference from electrical sources while using ceramic magnets to pump out all the crunch and sustain you'll need to rock the house. The Gibraltar III tailpiece lets you easily adjust each string for solid intonation. The short 24-2/3" scale makes note bending a breeze on the bound rosewood fretboard with 22 medium frets. The 12th fret has a special ART inlay for a modest touch of flair.

        Case sold separately.

          sent wrong guitar!!!! not satisfied either, the picture they put up was of a ibanez art100 with the 1 fret marker on the 12th fret and a gibraltar bridge, what i received was totally different the only thing they got right was the color and the art100 part, but... STILL!!! they should have said "hey! this guitar is the old version!" but NO! they had no comment on it other than there were a few scratches on the back side (which there were none that i could see).the bridge is different and one of the inlays has a tiny hole next to it (flaw in manufacturing) THE STRINGS ARE RUSTY!!! usually the string on a new set! (not on this one!) im so furious that they would sent this out without saying anything about it being different!

          Good value for the money re playability and sound. Only fair value considering reliability.
          I was in San Anotnio without a guitar and got a call from a band who needed a guitarist for a few gigs in Mexico City, so I went to a local music store to pick something up. I usually use Teles, so played a few in the lower prices ranges, including various MIMs and a Nashville tele, through a Marshall on the floor. On a whim I also picked up an ART100. It played and sounded so much better than any of the teles in the same price range (or more expensive in the case of the Nashville), so I went ahead and bought the Ibanez.

          At the time it seemed like great value for the money. But read on.
          I was fine for the first couple of gigs I played in Mexico City but on the third one I couldn not insert the guitar cable into the jack all the way. It just stuck halfway. I borrowed a screwdrive and took the guitar part and found that the spring that holds the jack in place had bent to block the jack hole. I used pliers to put it back in its orgiinal position. Was able to play the gig but missed the first set, pretty frustrating.

          Had the same problem the following night but forced it past the impasse. Flew back to the states after that and haven't used the guitar since. I plan to replace the jack with a better quality part. This isn't the first time I've had a problem with parts quality on a cheaper Ibanez. I have an ORM-1 too and the plastic nut broke on the first gig. I had a new one built for it and it's fine now. You get what you pay for. I realize many people never have problem with these guitars. But I've had a probloem with both lower-end Ibanez's so in the future I will either buy further up the line, or I'll replace jack hardware and nut before gigging.

          Comments about Ibanez ART100 Electric Guitar:

          I've had this guitar for nearly a year now, and it hasn't disappointed me yet. Its all mahogany so you know its going to have a great tone. The pickups aren't exactly high output, but they can handle plenty of gain.

          The only con about this guitar, is that its not for low tunings. The guitar is around 24.75 scale length, like a Gibson. It has a very slinky feel to it out of the box. The lowest you'll be able to tune this guitar comfortably, is probably Drop C: C G C F A D with an 11-56 or maybe 12-56 gauge of strings. its definitely not for low/ baritone tunings. Don't go putting 13s on here or you'll screw up the neck. I learned that the hard way. Other than that this guitar is a great buy. ibanez makes the best "medium priced" guitars.

            For the cheap price this is as good as it gets. I use this over all my other guitars and, I have many. It is not a LP but, It is very capable. Mine came right out of the box setup perfect. The case that I bought for it isn't so good. I will end up getting a better quality one for it. It is my favorite guitar! Thanks Musicians Friend.

                Comments about Ibanez ART100 Electric Guitar:

                The first time I put this guitar in my hands it was the one, and over 4 years later I play it every chance I get. I purchased the wine red model at my local music store. I must have played every guitar on display, I was wasting my time, the art100 was the one for me. I did my first review a year later, I wanted to put some miles on it before I made my judgement. I gave it 5 stars then and i'm giving it 5 stars now.

                The art100 is a great guitar and is solid as a rock and as smooth as butter, and is the reason I decided to upgrade my art100. So with the help of the awesome people at musicians friend, I transformed my art from great to well , freaking awesome! I started with a set of Seymour Duncan Hot Rodded humbuckers. DiMarzio 500k push pull volume pots, and tone. I changed out the stock tuners for Grover Rotomatics. Let me tell you the sound and the sustain is unbelievable. It will hold it's own with the heavy weights. The art100 is a great guitar with the capability of excellence.

                      I bought this in white a year ago locally to use as a backup. I play a lot of punk and hard rock, but with a set of heavy strings it's actually done well with metal and core style music. Anyways, I had to wait for the 2012 model to come in because of when I placed my order with them, but it was worth it! It has since become my main guitar! Straight out of the box it was ready to go and played great. Smooth neck, even frets, and a nice light body. The pickups have been put through just about every major amp and I have no complaints at all. The only thing I didn't like was the second volume knob, so I moved the toggle switch in to its place and added a kill switch. I liked this guitar enough that I've put a 2011 on layaway in black so I can have a backup just in case! Great guitar and an awesome buy! :)

                        This was my first electric guitar, I've owned it for about 2 years now. Its an amazing piece and gets the job done. I've only start playing seriously in the past year. I play a lot of jazz, funk classic rock, etc. The pups in this did the job for a while, but as I'm starting to progress more and more I'm starting to want something a little more. I'm ordering a Nashville tele soon hoping it could make the tones and sounds this can't. But for a beginner's guitar this is great. I'm definitely keeping it, and if I make any change it'll just be putting some new pups in and thats still a maybe. Overall: neck feels great, pickups sound nice, its a solid piece (I've dropped it a couple times and it only has one minor scratch on the back), can't go wrong with it. Definitely worth the buy.
