Overview

Anyone who knows their guitar history will tell you: Ibanez spent much of the 1970s in the role of the prodigious student-building copies that exceeded the quality of the originals. They'd proven themselves quite capable, but would they ever make their own distinctive contribution to the guitar pantheon? The Artist proved Ibanez was hell-bent on standing shoulder to shoulder with the industry's veterans.

Made of mahogany, just like the classics, the AR325 Artist's symmetrical double-cutaway body style was a first in the production guitar world. But Ibanez's biggest leap forward will continue to be appreciated by today's player: the tri-tone switching system-a unique configuration that opens up the number of pickup/tone possibilities. But no matter what the setting, the Super 58s pack this axe with rich tonal palette. Gorgeous old school pearl/abalone block inlays make for a path back to one of rock's most dynamic chapters.

    Comments about Ibanez AR325 Electric Guitar:

    The Ibanez AR325 is now my go-to guitar. I own a Gibson Les Paul Custom Classic, Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plus Top, Ibanez AM300, Fender Stratocaster (Mexican)and the new AR325 tops them all. The tone is very comparable to the Les Paul's but at two pounds lighter it is more comfortable. To be honest I had the neck shaved to match my AM300, which is my most comfortable guitar to play. I have small hands and prefer thin necks. I hardly use the tri-tone switches, almost always preferring the true humbucker tones. The workmanship is flawless and it's stunning to look at as well as play. At about $600 this guitar rivals others costing three times as much. I'm pleased and proud of it.

    Bluesy tone!

    By 

    from Wilkes Barre, Pa.

    Comments about Ibanez AR325 Electric Guitar:

    I've always played Ibanez guitars. I wanted a hard tail to force myself into vibrato without the wammy bar. That being said, the pickups sound great and the finish is beautiful. This is a flawless guitar right down to the neck. I've always said that buying a guitar is all about the neck. If it's not good then the guitar isn't good. No buzz at all here. The coil tapping adds some very useable tones too. This is a great guitar!

    Amazing

    By 

    from Mission Viejo California

    Comments about Ibanez AR325 Electric Guitar:

    This guitar is as every bit as good as the originals that were made in Japan. The only thing I did not like was that the neck seemed narrow from side to side. The tritone switched were way cool as well and the fit and finish flawless. Played through the new Marshall DSL16C this is a killer axe!
