outstanding sound

By Railer

from sacramento, CA

this guitar is amazing! From the moment you pick it up you know it's special and it plays that way. I used to only play Les Pauls, but now I play my ar300 and sometimes my les pauls. Night in and night out, set after set, this guitar gives you rich sound and flawless playability. For the price and quality, you will have a hard time finding a worthy comparison.

I love this guitar

By Sixstringer

This is a great guitar. Fell in love with it the moment I picked it up. The weight feels right, the neck is great. Pickups are hot. I use it with a Peavey Classic 50, and it's just killer! Thinking about buying another one for a backup.

great product

By ibanezman-4cjV0

I own the first-gen Artist, now over 26 years old. The sound has really mellowed over the years and the wood really settled in. It took about 10 years for the sound to develope, now it is my main axe.

This guitar is absolutely amazing. When playing it, I might expect it to cost about $1000 more than it does. The AR300 plays extremely well. Its sound is no different- absolutely wonderful. This is one of the greatest guitars that i have ever played.

Simply a great guitar

By Spydy

from England

Had mine now for about 2 months. The more I play the more I fall in love with it. Even my more experienced guitar playing friends think this is the best electric they've played.Great action, great sound & a great price.




from PA

I bought this axe without ever picking up a guitar before, and out of sheer luck i picked the greatist guitar i have ever played. It's a great guitar for rock, metal, jazz blues, anything really, The neck is incredibly fast and excellent for soloing and shreeding, and the two humbuckers sound amazing. It puts gibson it shame. If you were in the market for a les paul or SG i would give this guitar a try.

i love how the guitar feels and plays. I have put a Roland Syn. on the guitar and it sounds great. I have a friend who has a Gibson Les Paul, and he like's the feel and the sound the AR300 puts out. A Great buy and a good guitar. This is one of four Ibanez I own and have not be disappointed with any of them.
