    Comments about Ibanez Artcore Series AF75TDGIV Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

    Bought it because it was so beautiful
    Fun to play but it MUST be plugged into an amp. - Acoustically it's a bit thin (A Gretsch it's NOT)
    Sure looks and feels like a much more expensive guitar.

      Comments about Ibanez Artcore Series AF75TDGIV Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

      We went to look at a Gretch 5420T, and as we came into the store, my wife pointed out a "pretty" Ivory colored Ibanez Artcore AF75TDV with gold hardware near the front door. I touched it for a minute, untuned and unplugged and hmmm...OK? I was here looking for playability and sound by golly! So I promptly resumed my enmissioned route to the hollowbody rack.

      After 3 hours and 11 guitars in all; Epiphone, Korean Gretch's and Ibanez, I wound up with a red Artcore AF75 in my hand. I loved the sound and feel. We almost bought it, before I remembered the white "pretty" one she had found by the door. I went got it, and brought it into the booth and plugged it into the same Eggnater I had tested the others with.
      My wife had seen the look on my face when I played the first AF75 and when she saw me with the "pretty one" she told me it was my early christmas present (bless her heart!) Shucks I had to agree, and we took it home that day.
      I dropped the bridge slightly with the hand adj knobs, and it plays beautifully without a buzz. The pickups in the Gretchs sounded very slightly fuller in the warm mid tones, but nothing to jump about. The Ibanez really tromped the sound of all the others. The tonal range goes from Warm, to chimey, to cutting between use of all the tone controls.
      The neck is set into the body just like the Gretch 5420T. In fact the neck set, upper end neck kerf cut, and body construction (very sturdy) are so similar that if I had to speculate, I would almost say that either the same luthier makes both the Gretch 5420T and the Artcore. Either that or they built them with the same model manufacturing jigs.
      I played this guitar with our worship band last week, and the sound blended beautifully. I will be bringing her(my wife named her Jennny)to more of our weekly services for those songs that neither the Strat or the accoustic will fit well. For someone looking for a hollowbody electric and not budgeted for a Gibson Byrdland, or Gretch Country Gentleman, I would recommend this guitar.

        I've been playing guitar for 40 years. Mostly acoustic and solid body electric. Have always pined for a hollow body electric, and after reading reviews and doing some research I bought this guitar (I got the Orange one).

        Beautiful instrument, was well setup out of the box. Use it for playing live and recording. Great job Ibanez....wish I hadn't waited so long to buy this!!

                This is a remarkable instrument for the money. I compared it against several other "box" guitars including the Gretsch 5120. Truthfully, there is no real comparison. This guitar is a beautiful work of craftmanship and is a pleasure to play. Just buy it and enjoy. You'll have no regrets. And I can say this as a performing musician having played guitar over a period of more than 50 years.

                Artcore Series AF75TDG Hollowbody

                By Mellowgb

                from New York

                Comments about Ibanez Artcore Series AF75TDGIV Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

                Overall, this is a a very nice guitar for someone who can't afford a Gibson. I am very much pleased with it, more so than I expected. I would recommend it to anyone on a low budget who wants a decent playing hollowbody.
                This guitar plays so nicely, much better than what I expected for the money. The body is hollow giving a full toned sound. It has a tremolo built into the tailpiece. Rolling bridge to minimize string slippage when using the tremolo; I haven't been having any excessive tuning issues, surprisingly. Ibanez ACH Humbuckers come stock in this guitar. They sound decent, especially when turned up. I replaced them with Gibson Classic 57's and now the guitar sounds great! I bought it as a backup guitar to my Les Pauls but I find myself using it much more than I had planned. It is a stunning looking guitar as well.
                I've had it for about a year and a half. I have no issues with the quality of this instrument.
                The value of this guitar to me is higher than what it actually sells for. It would probably sell for more with better pickups stock.

                The most beautiful guitar I have ever owned.

                Comments about Ibanez Artcore Series AF75TDGIV Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

                I love it. I can't put it down. It is perfect for anyone wanting the vintage rockabilly sound or even blues or jazz. Very versatile.
                With the gold hardware and tremolo bar, you can't lose.
                Good solid guitar.
                It appears that this guitar will last a long time if cared for. Much guitar for the money and the sound is much more than some of the more pricey brands.

                Very good!
                I've had mine for almost three years now. I keep thinking that I'll somehow "upgrade", I tell my wife that I'll sell this Ibanez when the next axe arrives...never happens. Get your axe set up properly by a professional, put some heavy gauge strings on it, (at least 12s). That's what this screamer is made for. I've got 14 guitars, I'll never let this one go. Not to mention how impossibly beautiful it is.

                She's my Cadillac...

                By G. Everett

                from Winnipeg

                Comments about Ibanez Artcore Series AF75TDGIV Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

                Normally I like to customize the heck out of my guitars to make them my own, but the only modification I've made to this guitar so far is to round off the nut for more comfort. It's already earning its first buckle rashes and battlescars and continues to amaze me every time I pick it up. It's a great starting point for creating your own unique hollow-body sound or replicating classic tones. If you have the money, you will not regret purchasing this guitar, even if your only use for it is as an ornament. It looks and plays as good as anything twice its value.
                With golden hardware, immaculate finish, and proficient craftsmanship, the Artcore series of guitars are real beauties. My local store had the option of black or creme, and I had to buy the black one (although that red burst looks tasty as well).

                This guitar is surprisingly light, as it is a full hollowbody. The body itself is narrow enough to be comfortable to play for smaller or female players. Unplugged, this guitar is as loud as any acoustic, but plays much more comfortably as the action is not quite as high. It has a nice bright sound thanks to the steel strings.

                I find the factory pickups to be very nice-sounding for my style. They're rather warm, probably enhanced by the fact that I use flatwound strings, but the bridge pickup sounds clear and clean (for a humbucker) and the neck pickup has a beautiful softer tone for those creamy solos. When you select both at once, it's absolute heaven. Each pickup has its own volume and tone knob, which allows you to dial in exactly the sound you want - although even just cranked to 10 across the board it sounds phenomenal.

                The Bigsby-style arm is the icing on the cake. The factory setup allowed it to go up or down one full step perfectly (or as perfectly as a Bigsby can get). It can be a little too noisy for using during live acoustic recording, as it groans a little when being adjusted. Deep-digging picking can cause the strings to jump off of their rollers on the bridge, but I only do that when I get carried away. There are so many neat things you can do with it that the benefits outweigh the scanty issues inherent to the mechanism.
                Inside and out it is obvious that care has been taken in creating an instrument that looks, plays and sounds wonderful. No stray globs of glue, no cracks or poor joins, no loose parts, just sleek sexy craftsmanship the whole way through. The frets are well-defined and placed, and although I personally prefer chunkier ones these were a joy to play, especially legato. The tuners are smooth and precise in operation, and the pickup selector switch moves with military authority, no jiggling around. The only appreciable flaw I could find was a small burr on the finish in the inside of one of the soundholes, which was easily sanded down - and which went unnoticed by me for over a month.
                For the money, I don't think you can find another hollow-body guitar that is even comparable in quality and overall versatility and playability. The fact that it sounds great plugged in or unplugged makes it a great starting guitar if you don't mind spending a little more than the average beginners instrument, and chances are you will fall in love and continue to use it long after you've established your chops.

                I just love this guitar, For the price I paid, it was a steal!!!! I purchased it at a competator, not mucisans friend, GG, but it is the same guitar. You cant beat this guitar for quality and I have been playing for over 45 years. If you want an excellent jazz/blues guitar, do NOT pass on this one. Buy it.
