Best guitar that isnt a Gibson.

By Andrew

from Fresno, California

Comments about Ibanez ART300 Artist Electric Guitar:

This guitar has a good warm felling and has warm sound. I have bought this guitar right when it came out and i loved it. The LoZ pickups give really good sound. This guitar is also alot easier than most guitars to put strings on because of its bridge. I would recomend this guitar for any style: classic,rock,metal,jazz,or hardcore. This guitar has a really good price.

Beauty and the Brutal

By Monster Mike

from Minneapolis, MN

Comments about Ibanez ART300 Artist Electric Guitar:

Yeah. I bought this guitar just for the finish, only to find out that the pickups absolutely wail. You won't find a lot of guitars that look that classy and can also melt a face or two. Nice bridge, too. Restringing only takes a couple seconds. BAM! Like that.

Another Piece of Perfection From Ibanez

By LucusPlague

from City Of Evil MN

Comments about Ibanez ART300 Artist Electric Guitar:

this guitar is simply amazing. the textured finish is sick and the black or brown are both gorgeous. the set neck does wonders to the tone and sustain. anybody familiar with RGs or Prestige's know about the fast playing fretboard and neck. this thing is just as fast and way more comfortable. i like the slightly smaller frets too. they are much more fun to play then ultra jumbo frets and they improve your accuracy too. the pickups both scream and sing. they cut through the mix nicely. and pinch harmonics have never been easier. BUY THIS GUITAR!!

great price, awesome sound, excellent guitar!!!

By Adam

from mass

Comments about Ibanez ART300 Artist Electric Guitar:

I've had this guitar for a while now and it is awesome. I've owned many over the years and this is probably in my top 3. Great clean tones, but even better, nasty with the overdrives and distortions! I play mine hard and it has held up perfectly. The finish is second to none too. The "gator scales" look always gets compliments. Restringing takes seconds, stays in tune, light weight... what more can I say?! A+

Lightning fast neck

By Scott

from Princeton, NC

Comments about Ibanez ART300 Artist Electric Guitar:

This guitar has a lighting fast neck and fretboard and is very comfortable to play. Not heavy and not too light. The scalloped maple top looks beautiful and the pickups scream. Also sounds amazing clean. I bought the RGT42DX neck through guitar I bought a week prior because it was way too heavy. I love this guitar almost as much as my Destroyer.

Comments about Ibanez ART300 Artist Electric Guitar:

I got this guitar a few weeks ago and its perfect. It sounds great with distortion or with just a clean sound. Its a great guitar for a fair price that (in my opinion) plays better then any Gibson guitar.I would recommend this guitar for anyone.

Real Good Guitar

By Caleb

from Colorado

Comments about Ibanez ART300 Artist Electric Guitar:

This guitar is really good for the style of music i play as well as most other styles out there. First day of having it I jammed hard, and have jammed hard since and never had to change strings yet. Although I have only owned this guitar for 3 months, its a real buyer. The pickups are great and easy to use because of the positions and they are rubber fealing which really helps for those musicians who rub up on them. All together a really good guitar. 4 out of 5 because there are still gibsons out there.

By Ibanez player

from New Bern, NC

This is the best guitar I've ever played. It has a very nice metal tone to it, the pickups are amazing, and the finish adds a nice little shine. I would reccomend this guitar to any metal player.

this guitar rocks!

By neal

from crofton,md

Comments about Ibanez ART300 Artist Electric Guitar:

over a period of 16 years I have played many different types of guitars, this one is my favorite. Ibanez got the pickups right on the money. I bought this guitar in june of 2008 and ever since I have been wailing away on this sweet axe. the price is very cheap compared to the gibson les paul. if you get this guitar you won't regret it!

Great Ibanez guitar

By PocketTaco

from Springfield, VA

Comments about Ibanez ART300 Artist Electric Guitar:

The Les Paul type body makes it very comfortable to play on. Sure, the pickups aren't EMGs, but you will still get a great tone out of this guitar. With distortion, you will get lots of crunch while still maintaining clarity with the bridge pickup as well as getting a good, warm sound with the neck pickup should the occasion ever come that you want to play some jazz.

the perfect guitar

By Greg

from Egg Harbor Township

Comments about Ibanez ART300 Artist Electric Guitar:

When I laid eyes on this masterpiece, I just had to try it out. I was not disappointed at all with it. The caiman finish is just beautiful, and the inlay on the 12th fret is pretty sweet too. The tone and the playability was just godly. This is a very versatile guitar, I play anything from blues like B.B King to metal such as Amon Amarth.

Thank you Ibanez!!!!

By marcelo_metalhead

from Puebla, Mexico

Comments about Ibanez ART300 Artist Electric Guitar:

I̴��ve owned this guitar for some time now, and I must say it is, out of a JS100 and a Stratocaster, my best guitar. It has a really nice, warm sound and awesome sustain. So versatile, it can go from brutal distortion to crystal-clear, clean sounds. Add a nice overdrive to your clean signal and you̴��ll get a cool bluesy tone. A feature I totally liked is the 2-volume knobs and three-way selector, which I can use as a "killswitch". The pickups are HOT!!! If you want a Les Paul-kinda-tone, this is a very, very good option, especially if you consider the PRICE. Great for rythm work and soloing. Excellent for pinch harmonics and low tunings, e.g., Drop C. The batteries last quite a long time and changing the strings is incredibly easy. It stays in tune no matter what!! The ART300 is a killer looking guitar, classy and powerful as well. Besides, NOTHING can beat that funky scalloped maple top! My advice, GET THIS GUITAR if you̴��re looking for an awesome, versatile, affordably priced rock and metal axe!

Best guitar on the market for cost.

By Cody Spaulding

from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

Comments about Ibanez ART300 Artist Electric Guitar:

I bought this guitar about two weeks ago. Havn't set it down since. Very light (although may look heavy), isn't even close to as heavy as the les paul or epiphone "les paul". Pickups are extremely HOT. Plugged my old epiphone sg into my amp and played around, then plugged the ART300 in and was extremely louder(yet still just as clear). Brought my amp to a whole new level. After replacing the batteries for the pickups with some Lithium batteries they got even hotter. I really like how i can play grungy stuff AND jazz on this guitar without any effect pedals or anything. Very dynamic, you can really tell a HUGE diffrence when you change the switch positions. Neck is very comfortable and fast. Only downside so far is one of my tuners doesn't hold the tune as well as the other (but doesn't really matter because I play on switching to lock machine tuners soon anyways). All around a great purchase and have absolutely no regrets!

IBANEZ ART300

By Ricky Byrum

from Mid Atlantic

Comments about Ibanez ART300 Artist Electric Guitar:

Hey folks, I love this guitar. Scott and the crew at the Va. Beach store are always kewl to work. I've made several purchases of various items and their suggestions always lead me in the right direction. Playability; price, and tone are the selling points for me. Having a few surgeries, weight was a issue previously. So this guitar even helps in that as well.I really like this guitar! peace Ricky Byrum

Awesome

By mrfike

from Davison, Michigan

Comments about Ibanez ART300 Artist Electric Guitar:

Great sound, thick and warm, but still distinctively Ibanez. THe bridge is the steadiest and easiest to use of any of the 3 Ibanez's I own (Roadstar II, RX750). The neck is solid and fast, a very versatile guitar. There's no downside to this guitar, it is awesome!
