I was looking at a few different hollow-bodies (Epiphone, Gretsch & Ibanez). The Epiphones were nice, but too heavy for me because I jump around onstage a lot. The Gretsches were nice as well, but I own an Electromatic that has problems staying in tune, and the nut had to be replaced after a year and a half of playing it, so I was wary of picking up another Gretsch. I chose the Ibanez AF75, and for almost two years now, it's been a perfect fit. It has a very full, classic hollow-body sound (and look), and is easy to play. It stays in tune for the whole gig, and, unlike a lot of other hollow-bodies I've played, it never feels fragile or breakable. My only (very small) criticism is that there's no master volume control - just one for each pickup. FYI, I'm a rhythm guitarist, so if you play lead, you should read other reviews as well.

But was dissapointed with the sound quality of the pickups. Bought an Epiphone Dot instead. If you are looking for a warm fat sound, my advice, look at the Epiphone as well as this before you buy. The guitar looks very good, has a good neck and seems to be built with quality.

    i think every thing is great about, like i said I'm 11 but i really picked it up, i thing this would be great for another one of my concerts and i really hope i get this guitar. This axe is as bad as king kong, really love the movement and color that was put and carved into this, i think this would be a wonderful tool for the many musicians out there and i sure as heck know i want it.

      This is my second Ibanez. I own Gibsons , Fenders and a Zager. My two Ibanez , the other being a classical , are in my top 3 favorites of many! Best bang for the buck I've found.

        Comments about Ibanez Artcore AF75 Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

        I have been waiting to buy this guitar for months. It came on sale so I finally pulled the trigger. Pulled it out of the box and couldnt believe how gorgeous it is in person. I havent been able to plug it in yet because we have a new baby in the house, but acoustically it sounds great. I actually had to make myself put it down to come write the review. If you have been considering this guitar, do it. Its an amazing value for the fit, finish, and sound. Super easy to play also.

          Comments about Ibanez Artcore AF75 Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

          I play a wide range of styles. Jazz, blues, rock, pop, folk, country, whatever the gig calls for. Among my fenders, gibsons, epiphones, guilds, taylors, had some great guitars, but none had that full rich jazz tone I was looking for for a specific type of music, jazz. I bought the Ibanez artcore af-75 and put some flatwound strings on it. Man did that do the trick'!. Has a full, robust sound, that works so beautifully playing jazz and complements my other guitars wonderfully. I just love the feel, and sound of the instrument, and on top of that, it's just plain beautiful to look at. 5 stars easy!!

            Comments about Ibanez Artcore AF75 Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

            I sat down with the Ibanez AF75 at Guitar Center for over 3hrs. I had traded in a guitar and wanted a jazz/blues machine. I had come in with the Ibanez in mind, but also I had my eye on the Epiphone Wildkat, and the Epiphone Dot. I liked the tone of each, but I kept coming back to the Ibanez. Overall, the build on the Wildkat was poor; it couldn't stay in tune even without using the tremolo. I have owned several Dots over the years and had the same problem with each, the necks broke when adjusted, not by myself, but by 3 different luthiers. The Ibanez just has this warmth to it. Unplugged it sounds like every other semi hollow, maybe a bit tinnier, but plugged in, it just sings. This is perfect for blues/jazz/rock/ or in my case, being in the worship band at church. Do yourself a favor, go to Guitar Center, tune one up, and sit with it for 15min on your favorite amp, just a little overdrive and some reverb, and you will see exactly what I mean. Fantastic instrument. Unbelievable price for this quality. Mine stays in tune like a champ. Minor adjustments every few days. Can't believe it.

            Comments about Ibanez Artcore AF75 Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

            Returned my recently purchased Luna acoustic/ electric and searched the store for store credit. There she was the AF75 on the wall right behind the clerk. This guitar fits perfect in my hands, the knobs are out of the way. I removed the pick guard as my fingers tend to tap and now it is freedom. So easy to play, the response and action are out of this world. Throwing down the extra 2 bills was worth the day when Luna refused to play.. My first hollow body ever and it helps keep my panic attacks in check. Great big sound that captures your dexterity and brightens the emotions that you put into your playing in awesome clarity that you can't hear with other guitars. NICE ! !

              Comments about Ibanez Artcore AF75 Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

              Wanted a secondary guitar to cover Jazz/Blues/Rockabilly duty and the Artcore really delivers. Impressive fit and finish right out of the box and also serves as a nice, quiet (non-amplified) option for quiet practice. Only one criticism - the tuning pegs need an upgrade. Have to re-tune after just about every song, and at this price point I don't expect deluxe pegs, but I know Ibanez can do better. Still, very happy with the purchase overall. A nice pickup for the casual jazz/blues player.

              Bought this guitar online after much research.Came well packed with no damage and intonation and action spot-on right out of the box.Changed the strings to D'Addario Chrome XL's and it came alive! I use this guitar only for recording and I could'nt be more pleased with my purchase.It's got a full clear tone on all pickup settings,is very responsive to tone adjustments.Beautifull sound for jazz leads and rhythm on the neck pickup and cuts through bright and snazzy on the bridge pickup.Accomplishes everything I bought it for at a price that can't be beat.

              Comments about Ibanez Artcore AF75 Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

              Out of the box the guitar need a professional setup - especially with the floating bridge. I expected that anyway. When I received guitar back from one of the best "smiths" in town - the guitar was awesome. I can play jazzy tunes like Fly Me To The Moon to rockin with Nugent Snakeskin Cowboy. Great Value for a beginner to someone who wants to add a hollow body to his collection.
