OVERVIEW

(Open Box) Customized for today’s cutting edge players.

For many decades, Ibanez has been re-energizing the hollowbody world with a wide variety of original designs, unrivaled playability and polished tones. By closely working with many legendary artists Ibanez is constantly striving to experiment, innovate and deliver. This enthusiasm for exploration has led to the Contemporary Archtop series, customized specifically to meet the demands of today’s cutting edge players.

The AFC155 features a larger headstock design, 3-piece Mahogany/ Maple set-in neck and bound Ebony fretboard with hand rolled fret edge treatment, thus providing maximum playing comfort and smooth articulation. It's built with a selected Spruce top, Flamed Maple back and sides with Flamed Maple bound hollow body, all dressed in beautiful high gloss transparent finish. As well as providing its stylish appearance these features help provide a balanced tone, and with the addition of plywood top, help to avoid unnecessary feedback. The rock solid Ebony compensated bridge give the output a clear intonation, longer sustain and acoustic resonance.

The AFC155 comes with the Ibanez custom made “Magic Touch-Mini” humbucker pickups, providing a balance of classic tones, alongside clear articulation on both the top and bottom of the sound spectrum. Players can enjoy the clean response on the top end, presenting fast melodies or complex chord progressions with clarity and precision. The bottom end also has a deep warm and rich classic sound, but with a clarity specially adjusted to help avoid muddy low end tones.

This tonal balance is complimented by the pickups’ extra sensitivity that clearly captures and accentuates the players pick attack and plucking style opening the possibilities of a wide range of playing techniques. Thanks to floating mount, the “Magic Touch-Mini” pickups do not dampen the guitars natural body vibration, thus allowing a bigger richer acoustic tone. These are all complimented by the newly designed pickguard, tailpiece cover and wooden control knobs. The AFC155 comes with hardshell case.

Comments about Ibanez AFC Contemporary Archtop Electric Guitar:

I love the way this guitar looks. Very unique. The finish and choice of woods are very nice. Especially the color. Wow! I wanted to like this guitar but, no matter what I did, I could not get used to it and could not get chords to quit buzzing and muting out. This in large part was due to the action. It was unusually high. I played it that way for several days, all the while loving the sound. Warm and even and punchy....very even and in tune on all chords, all up and down the neck. The neck looked good....straight with a very slight bow. Checking published specifications....I am NOT a guitar tech, and my humble measurement devices, it was very high at the 12th fret and up. I lowered the bridge very slightly and started getting buzzing on some of the notes higher up on the neck. I am used to playing acoustic guitars (Taylor from factory) so it's not me. A jazz box like this should be smooth and easy to play as butter. This one is not. The string length also is 5/8" less than a standard jazz box and that could have something to do with it.
My other rub is about internal woodworking. Looking inside one of the f-holes at the molding that joins the back and sides, there is a chunk of wood sticking out,...like it was cut too long and it overlaps instead of a clean butt joint.... making it look very cheap and tacky.
I would say that some money spent on a good-quality set up luthier would make this a very nice jazz box. I would not know how to fix the molding inside.
