Overview

For many decades, Ibanez has been re-energizing the hollow body 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 AFC151 features larger headstock design, 3-piece Mahogany/ Maple set-in neck and bound Ebony fretboard with hand rolled fret edge treatment provide maximum playing comfort and smooth articulation. 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 elements provide a balanced tone, and with the addition of plywood top, help to avoid unnecessary feedback. The Rock solid Ebony compensated bridge provides better intonation, longer sustain and acoustic resonance.

The AFC151 comes with the Ibanez custom made “Magic Touch-Mini” humbucker pickup, 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 pickup’s 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” pickup does 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 AFC151 comes with hardshell case.

    Comments about Ibanez AFC Contemporary Archtop Electric Guitar:

    Excellent materials (ebony tuner buttons, ebony pickguard, ebony bridge, ebony volume and tone knobs, ebony tailpiece cover, ebony fretboard, amazing fretwork, lacquer finish, laminated spruce top and flame maple back and sides, flame maple binding around the body front and back AND both f-holes, comfortable body depth, perfect neck profile (Gibson-like... a bit thicker than other Ibby jazz boxes), a great floating pickup and much more.

    Sounds fantastic acoustically with that organic sound that only a well crafted archtop produces. Amazing plugged-in sound with great range of control on both knobs. The tone control actually works across the whole range of rotation. Excellent, pure tone for jazz. I love this guitar!
