Built using only the finest materials under the strictest quality control measures imaginable.
The return of a legend. The Artist is back. Recognized as the guitar that declared Ibanez as a force to be reckoned with back in that golden age of rock known as the '70s this Prestige rendering of the Artist brings Ibanez full circle. Like the original, this Artist is also a product of Japan, only now bearing the Prestige label, signifying it has been built using only the finest materials under the strictest quality control measures imaginable.
Like the classics of yesteryear, the AR2619s mahogany body features a symmetrical double-cutaway and multi-layered body binding that gracefully outlines its exquisite flamed maple top. Arguably, it is the biggest leap forward Ibanez made 40 years ago that will be most appreciated by todays player: the Tri-Sound switching systema unique pickup configuration control that pack this axe with a rich tonal palette.
No matter what the setting, the 2619s Super 80 Flying Finger pickups deliver smooth, warm, vintage sound that make this Artist a must for fans of classic rock tone. The 3-piece maple set-in neck features old school Pearl/Abalone block inlays, and is expertly joined to the body, and finished with a baby-smooth heel. The AR2619 is the true path back to one of rocks most dynamic chapters. Hardshell case included.
