Ibanez Semi-Hollow and Hollow Body Electric Guitars
If you're looking for the ultimate Artcore guitar, look to the Expressionist series. Any jazz fan will likely recognize the custom Super 58 pickups on the Ibanez Artcore Expressionist guitars - they're the same pickups that George Benson, Pat Metheny and John Scofield chose for their own signature guitars. Their warm and balanced precision works for other genres as well, and it's the combination of those responsive pickups with the outstanding Artcore guitar body that makes the Expressionist series such great instruments.
The same Super 58 custom pickups are also found on the Artstar line, which are the flagship Ibanez hollow-body electric guitars. Heavily influenced by jazz, these instruments are distinguished by their bone nuts and ebony fretboards. Artstar guitars are premium jazz-boxes that set a high standard in hollow-body craftsmanship.
For the guitarist who wants the perfect cross between a jazzy hollow-body and a rocking solid-body electric, Ibanez also offers the Roadcore style guitar. Using a classic retro semi-hollow body design, a Roadcore gives you modern playability together with an authentic vintage sound that's perfect for classic rock. The round-profiled neck of the Roadcore is easy to handle, and its "Core-Tone" pickups are well-balanced, with good warmth and clarity together in one.
Although their heritage is in jazz and classic rock, Ibanez semi-hollow and hollow body electric guitars are ready to take on any style of music that you'd like to enrich with their distinctive vintage sound. Like all Ibanez guitars, they're well-crafted instruments that you can count on to perform well from the stage to the studio.
