When released in the mid-'70s, the Artist was the first original design to prove that Ibanez was a force to be reckoned with. It was embraced by major recording artists and shook up the sleeping “industry giants” who had grown apathetic and inattentive from years of unchallenged dominance in the marketplace. The AR725 proudly continues the Artist legacy with all the elements intact that originally elevated the guitar to icon status.
Harkening back to the earliest of the original '70s Artist designs, the AR725 draws on the period’s more characteristic ornate accents, such as its intricate fleuron body and fretboard inlays, fleuron style pickguard, vintage silver capped top hat knobs, and gold plated hardware from headstock to heel.
True to form, the AR725 features a choice mahogany symmetrical body with a maple top for that extra heavy “chunk” and endless sustain you’d expect of a classic 70s Artist. A comfortable 3-piece Maple “AR” set-in neck incorporates a super-smooth heel for easy access to the highest frets, a smooth bound ebony fretboard, and a vintage style bone nut that make the AR725 as enjoyable to play as it is inspiring to look at.
Rounding out its lengthy list of classic '70s attributes, the AR725 features the ART-1 bridge for flawless intonation, and original Super 80 “Flying Finger” humbuckers for extra sensitive response and a wide range of pleasing tonal options. Hardshell case included.
