Designed to be practical with features designed and tested by performing artists.
One of the most respected Ibanez models developed during the 1970s was the Artist. The Ibanez AR320 Electric Guitar is a result of the commitment to create the state-of-the-art in electric guitars. Rather than utilizing exotic gimmicks and useless frills, every feature of an Ibanez Artist Series is designed to be practical. Every feature is researched, designed, tested and re-tested with the help of leading artists.
Featuring a mahogany body with a flamed maple top, the Artist’s symmetrical double-cutaway body style was a first in the production guitar world. It’s slim and comfortable 3pc Maple set-in neck with smooth heel design, allows for high position access. Ibanez’s biggest leap forward, the tri-tone switching system, will continue to be appreciated by today’s player. It is a unique configuration that opens up the number of pickup/tone possibilities. Regardless of the setting, the Super 58s pack this axe with a rich tonal palette. Gorgeous old school pearl/abalone block inlays make for a path back to one of rock’s most dynamic chapters.
