    Comments about Ibanez Artcore AF71F Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

    For the price it's a good backup, practice, or second guitar. My main complaint the guitar body is too light. The neck and headstock tilts down while you are playing. Especially if you are standing up playing. If you are sitting down it's okay. If you stand and play you have to use a guitar strap with a string attached to the headstock instead of strapping at the body strap button. For me other than that issue it's a good value. It's a beautiful guitar. It looks like a high end guitar. They should have balance the neck and body better. I have a Les Paul and if you've played one it's just the opposite, the body is too heavy. Thanks for reading my review. Hope this will help you in making a choice. I've been playing guitars for a while and I'm very picky about every aspect of a guitar and I have every style imaginable.

        Comments about Ibanez Artcore AF71F Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

        This is a tremendous value for an arch top that has great tone and looks fantastic. Yes, the setup wasn't dead-on, but what arch top is that's delivered through the mail? And it's so easy to setup yourself... like the truss rod cover has a hinge. You don't even have to take out the screws. Besides, everyone puts on new strings especially with a jazz guitar because they never come with flat wounds. So get new flat wound strings, adjust the rod, set the bridge where it should be (centered on the f holes), set the height base on the string size and then adjust the intonation with the TOM bridge. Perfect. And you'll love the tone and playability.

          Comments about Ibanez Artcore AF71F Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

          set up was terrible. the intonation screws in the bridge were loose, neck had to be adjusted, had to raise the bridge really high to kill the fret buzz. the first time I plugged in to an amp the thing buzzed until you put your fingers on the strings to ground it. I returned it and as always MF customer service was great.
          save your money and buy a higher end model. I ended up getting a AFL95 which is a much better guitar.

          Very well made. Looks great. Easy to play. Neck feels right. Body isn't too big but still has mellow tone you want in this style of guitar.

              Comments about Ibanez Artcore AF71F Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

              This is a fabulous guitar for the price. It is well made with a solid feel and light as a feather, with a very playable neck. Funky jazz chords and their extensions are easily achieved without having to reposition your hand. Finger-style enthusiasts will find much to like here. (You should plan on using your pinky a lot.) But... This isn't a guitar for someone with big hands. The neck is very narrow at the nut which makes it a dream to play if you have small hands. (The 50's profile neck on my Les Paul seems like a 2x4 in comparison.) The single mini-humbucking pickup has a nice tonal range with some surprising punch. If you're looking for that classic 1940's jazz guitar sound, you will want to turn the tone almost completely down. (The guitar comes strung with .009 gauge round wound strings and are a bit too bright.) The slots in the nut look like they can handle heavier gauge strings without having to do any modifications so I plan to install a set of flatwound strings. The tuning keys are smooth and responsive. After 35 years of playing Les Pauls, Teles and Strats, the one thing here that will take some getting used to is the bridge assembly. It is held in place by the strings and can be moved if you have an aggressive strumming style or if you rest your hand on the bridge a lot. The Ibanez Artcore line enjoys a well-deserved reputation for affordable quality and this, their latest offering, only furthers that reputation. The fully bound body and neck, and the block inlays on the neck, add a nice classy touch that makes the guitar look like it costs more than it does. It was set up nicely coming out of the box but I used the wheels on the bridge to slightly lower the strings and improve the action. [One bit of advice: The guitar comes with a small piece of plastic foam between the bridge and the body to protect the body in shipment. Before loosening the strings to lift the bridge and remove this padding, first use some painters' masking tape to outline the placed position of the bridge.]
