Overview

For a decade now, Ibanez has energized the hollow-body segment with a wide selection of designs that run from rockin' hybrids to straight-up jazz boxes. The Expressionist line is writing yet another chapter in the Artcore story. Built with tonewoods selected for their beauty as well as their musicality, the Expressionist line covers every style of music Ibanez hollow and semi-hollow bodies are known for.

The full-hollow AF95RW features select rosewood top, back, and sides, and handsome ivory binding on the body, headstock, and fingerboard. An expertly crafted 3-pc maple/ mahogany set-in neck ensures body liveliness and is fitted with a rich Rosewood fingerboard with silky contrasting acrylic block inlays.

Jazz fans will recognize the Ibanez original Super 58 pickups, the preferred pickup of George Benson, Pat Metheny, and John Scofield used in their own signature models. These pickups provide warm, balanced articulation, and excellent response. Super 58s are at home in variety of genres. Case sold separately.

Comments about Ibanez Artcore Expressionist AF95RW Hollow-Body Electric Guitar:

First, I cannot comment on packaging or shipping as I bought my AF95RW from a friend. Nothing wrong with it, he just decided to stick with the bass.

Appearance – Look at the pictures. There is nothing misleading about them. This is a beautiful guitar! It is a little on the heavy side, but you'll only notice it when you pick it up, after that you'll be seduced by its magic.

Unplugged – At first I was a little disappointed by the tone quality, but I quickly realized that the problem was the cheap strings that were on it. I replaced them with Slinky's and suddenly it came to life. Realistically, you're never going to get the deep rich tone from a hollow body electric that you will from something like a dreadnought or jumbo, but compared to other hollow bodies, this baby has great tone, sustain, and projection. The thicker the strings the more projection and the deeper the tone, but also much harder to bend, vibrato,and hammer on/pull off, and believe me, you're going to want to bend on this ax.

Plugged in – Yeah, now your talking. I am a classic rock/rockabilly player that loves to slide into the blues. I can put this baby on clean and finger out some Bob Dylan, give it enough distortion and I'm slamming out a little Zeppelin. This is not a thrashing slamming beast, Ibanez makes guitars for that too, but this is not one of them. This is a beautiful tool made to bring out the creative self, and it does just that. This is the kind of guitar that you're either playing it, or thinking about playing it.

Comments about Ibanez Artcore Expressionist AF95RW Hollow-Body Electric Guitar:

The quality of this guitar cannot be overstated. I saw it at Guitar Center and it was love at first site. No other hollow body/semihollow body I tried was even close. The tone and the feel of this instrument are spot on. i have had this guitar for a year and a half now and have had no issues with it. Fantastic value and a great sounding guitar. Highly recommend.

    Comments about Ibanez Artcore Expressionist AF95RW Hollow-Body Electric Guitar:

    I saw the pics at the Ibanez website. Fell in love. Ordered one from Guitar Center. Came in a couple of weeks. Beautiful. Even better than the pics. Looks great. Plays great. Sounds great. It isn't a screamer, but I don't play that way anyway, for country, western, jazz, blues, it doesn't get better than this. Ten thumbs up.
