Ibanez combines all that with an arched flamed maple top to give you smooth, hefty tone.

Been shopping for an F-hole Hollow body for sometime. Picked up this guitar & knew right away it was the one for me. Compared side by side to MUCH more expensive guitars, it holds its own. Very versitile sound, very low action at the 12th-14th fret.Smooth & fast neck. The Bonus: BEAUTIFUL finish & very affordable price. Ibanez is making some great guitars right now!
I cant put it any plainer. 5 stars isn't enough. Perfect out of the box. I played every other available hollow body in this price range. Nothing comes close. Buy what feels right but this thing is awesome through any amp with almost any style. I will probably own this guitar for the rest of my life.
I own 3 guitars, a les paul standard plus top, fender HSS strat (with blackouts), and this. This and the strat are my favorites. This guitar has a really good clean sound,good for strumming. It's got a pretty decent dirty which is great for your bluesy rock or classic riffs Pros- Great sound, light weight, stays in excellent tune, and very versatile Cons- has a slight ring when on crunch/OD/gain/boost/etc setting, the metal work fades a bit over time (I've had this guitar for 2 years), and the strap holder is in a very awkward place. For the most part this is a pretty good guitar for blues and classic rock. If you're going for a more powerful sound, get a solid body.
i got one of these guitars last summer and couldnt be more happy. i was in a bluesy, jazz phase and found shortly after that this guitar is extremely versatile for all kinds of music. anything you want it can produce. only thing is that it feeds back from time to time. never played a big show, so im not too sure how it handles super loud. i love it though. wont regret this guitar, and will play forever
I bought this guitar as my #3 as a beginner. The AF95 makes me want to pick it up and practice, which I do. The "Fit" is great, the sound is super, the ease of changing the chords is unreal. The "look" has that super expensive look. Highly recommend to anyone.
I bought this guitar about 2 months ago. This is a beautiful looking guitar and the sound is wonderful. It has a deep rich sound that is warm but can also be hard and crunchy with some great harmonics. I would greatly recommend this for blues and jazz guitar. I combined these with pure nickle wrapped strings for an amazing sound.
I had no real guitar experience when I chose this Ibanez as my first instrument. But it sounded great in the store, either acoustic or plugged in, so I brought it home. I've been learning on this baby for about six months now and I haven't been disappointed! It sounds wonderful unplugged, especially with open chords, and with a good amp I can get it to play a wide variety of sounds (that was important to me, as I wanted to be able to try playing a little bit of everything.) It holds its tune. It also looks great: especially with the inlays, it looks like a far more expensive guitar than it is. I have two minor complaints. First, the trapeze is starting to show a little wear (not sure why). It's not noticeable unless you're up close. Second, the strap button behind the neck is in a strange place and the guitar never felt balanced while I was standing. I eventually bought an acoustic guitar quick-release strap and wear it like an acoustic -- which works for me. I'm just a beginner but after six months of practice (1-2 hours a day) I'm still really enjoying this instrument.
This is a good guitar. I actuall like it better when it is not plugged in to an amplifier. The chords ring out well and the individual notes sound clear and crisp. The fret board has good action and the guitar stays in tune pretty well. If you are looking for a good hollow body guitar, then I would recommend this.
I have been looking for an electric hollow body for about six months, Ieven purchased a Gretch 5120 returned it and a peavey the peavy was real bad. The two metioned did not sound well on regualr chords , you know like a open C , G ect. Then I played this. It sounds great up and down the neck, nice blues, jazz sound that you would expect from a more expencive guitar. I won't be returning this baby. these tend to be in short supply so if you see one get it...
