I love this guitar!! I have had it for about 4 months now and plays as good as the day I bought it. Hollow body produces a great bluesy tone alone and sounds even better with an amplifier. The only disadvantage of this guitar design is the hard to play higher notes, gets the hand cramping up due to the thick neck and no concave like the strat has.

It's a "good" price for a clearance floor model guitar, but the amount of scratches detracts from the price.
A used similar model may have not have had so many scratches, and may have been cheaper.
However, some of the more "visible" scratches/rubs did buff out, there are those that may require more effort.
Overall I'm satisfied with the purchase, but have to get accustomed to the marks that only I can see.

Great Blues Guitar

Comments about Ibanez Artcore Expressionist AG95 Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

Very nice jazz box

By Nik Pappas

from Charleston

Comments about Ibanez Artcore Expressionist AG95 Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

I had to sell my expensive vintage jazz guitar because I needed the cash for some bills. I ran into this guitar thinking it would get me by for a while. Was pleasantly surprised. It sounds very good and plays easily, once set up. The trick is getting some expensive Thomas-Infield strings..the strings that come with it really don't show what this guitar can do. Yes there are better instruments out there-but for the money it more than does the job. The guitar I sold for 4x the money had more quirks than the Ibanez, and really did'nt sound any better.

Love it!

By Em

from Essex Fells, NJ

Comments about Ibanez Artcore Expressionist AG95 Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

The first time I played this guitar I fell in love with it. Now, three years later, I have yet to play a guitar that I like as much as my Ibanez. It has really low action and no fret buzz. A few months ago I got a new setup and it sounds beautiful. I like to play all styles of music and this guitar sounds awesome no matter what genre I'm playing. It sounds good whether it is plugged in or not too! I would recommend this guitar to anybody who is looking for a sturdy, nice sounding, and playable guitar that will last them many years.

This guitar is the very best of it's category.

By Leila

from Kinnelon

Comments about Ibanez Artcore Expressionist AG95 Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

Since day one this guitar has played spectacularly. I mostly play it un-plugged because I just absolutely love the sound of it. My fingers can move easily up and down the fret-board, and the neck is skinny enough for me to be able to reach tough chords. This is my third guitar, and I know I wont be needing another one any time soon. As they say, three times a charm!

Simply the BEST

By Scott

from St. Helen,MI.

Comments about Ibanez Artcore Expressionist AG95 Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

As far as hollowbody guitars goes,this one will do it all.The first thing Everybody notices is the beautiful wood and hardware of this gem.Then when you play it ,the real beauty comes through. I would put the ease and sound of playing this guitar up to any Gibson hollowbody I've seen or played.I could hardly believe that this guitar came set up and ready to play.I don't know if Ibanez has the habit of setting up their guitars at the factory or if I just got lucky and this one came this way.I would bet I was lucky ? Anyways it was so close ,that nothing could be done to improve it ,right out of the box.This is the second Ibanez that I have bought,and like the other one ,it has the sound and quality that can't be beat for the price.How Ibanez can sell guitars of this caliber at such a price is unknown to me.As you can tell,I couldn't be happier with this new AG 95! I have NO regrets and I think I like it better everytime I pick it back up to play.Bottom line is if you want a one of the prettiest and nicest sounding hollwbodies out there,you won't go wronge with this Ibanez.

Good Guitar

By Dean

from WI

Comments about Ibanez Artcore Expressionist AG95 Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

I recently purchased this. It is so nice and light, I bet it weighs 40% of my Gibson ES335 with close to the same sound. Beautiful Finish, Tone & very playable.

Excellent

By AG Player

from Illinois

Comments about Ibanez Artcore Expressionist AG95 Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

I have been playing this guitar for three months. Mine came out of the package set-up perfectly, intonation dead on. Only had to change the strings, flatwounds of course. It is extremely light but feels very solid. I have not found any flaws at all. It sounds great for any style I've used it for; blues, jazz, country, funk, reggae, rock, rockabilly, and fusion. I've read reviews knocking the pick-ups but they seem just as hot as the ones on my 79' Explorer; it also plays better. I played numerous semi/hollow body guitars before deciding on this one, including; Epiphones, Gibsons, Hagstroms, and Corts. I even tried almost all of the Artcore models as well. I was about to buy a AK95 but liked the look of the AG and thought the slightly smaller body would be a better fit for me. Only problem was I could not find one in a store. I took a chance and just ordered it; I was very happy with my decision. IMO this is the best of the Artcores, even the custom. I've also read reviews saying it feedbacks to easily. I have not had a problem with this, in fact, I've never played a guitar that I could control the feedback so easily. Turn on a overdrive pedal, take your hands off the strings, point toward the amp and get an awesome gradual crescendo of feedback. Put your hands back on the strings and it stops. I am absolutely in love with this guitar. If it weren't for the fact I use an acoustic at work I would never play anything else.

Changed for the Better

By Kevin Kennedy

from Anderson, South Carolina

Comments about Ibanez Artcore Expressionist AG95 Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

First of all, make sure you get the model with the trapeze style tailpiece, and the Super 58 pickups. The inlay on this model is not as ornate, but it will do. The bad news is I had to get the frets leveled for maximum playability. I keep my action very low, and the frets were not finished to my satisfaction. The look is "cleaner" than the previous model, with a few cosmetic differences. However, the sound is very different. I am a big fan of Ibanez Super 58 pickups. I have never liked the ceramic pickups they put in the previous model. Super 58's work well on this guitar. Beautiful round jazz tones, with just enough growl for a good blues tone. This IS a hollow body guitar with a floating bridge. So you will have to watch your volume. Overall I am pleased with the purchase. The look, tone and feel of this instrument is comparible to guitars costing 2 or 3 times as much.

    Ibanez Jazz Box

    By Daniel Pantalone

    from Guilford, CT

    Comments about Ibanez Artcore Expressionist AG95 Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

    I really like the sound of this guitar, both plugged in and without an amp. The high strings are not tinny or too bright and the low strings are very rich. The fingering is very comfortable and this guitar body size fits me perfectly. It is very comfortable and light. My only complaint is the wood grain used on the face of the guitar. My guitar is the deep brown, which I like but it does not have the grain that radiates perpendicular to the neck. My grain runs parallel to the neck. It still looks good but does not have the sunburst look of the image shown on the internet. Be careful if you buy it from the internet as it may not look like the picture. That is the only reason I gave it a 4 instead of a 5. I really like this guitar especially if you travel and don't want to hall around an amp.

        Comments about Ibanez Artcore Expressionist AG95 Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

        Although I have been playing guitar for awhile. I will never be professional. I have played acoustic including an acoustic with an electric pick up, arguably electric, but this guitar the Ibanez Artmore Expressionist is a great additional guitar. Fun to play and listen to. It looks and sounds great with quicker action when not simply strumming chords. The hollow body when practicing without amplification, provides reasonable, though muted sound. When amplified the guitar has that great electric sound.
