    Triple WOW!

    Comments about Ibanez Artstar Series AF255BM Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

    This guitar is a true beauty! If you've been looking at other pics online, getting one in person is amazing! Each one is going to be completely different and the burled maple is just stunning. Everything about the guitar is solid, built well, and setup great right out of the box. Some minor adjustments and tuning and the guitar is ready to go. The case is great for a simple case. I'm not a professional, but this guitar is smooth and easy to play. There is a very sweet and warm tone unplugged, and when plugged in there are all kinds of amazing tones. I play a little bit of everything and this one will too. Don't think of it only as a jazz guitar. Blues on it are just so deep gutsy. Seriously, it's a great guitar and absolutely beautiful!!!

    An Astounding Guitar for the Right Price

    By JAMES LAIR

    Comments about Ibanez Artstar Series AF255BM Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

    Ibanez Artstar AF255MB Hollow body Electric Guitar (Blue Lagoon) 5 Stars I give the Ibanez Artstar AF255MB Hollow body Electric Guitar five stars because it meets and exceeds my expectations. I purchased this hollow body guitar as my first electric guitar to learn jazz and to learn more about electric guitars. When I read the reviews, the most common statement was that it comes straight out of the box all setup. It does! I tuned it up, plugged it in, and played. It has a sweet warm tone. It comes with flat strings. But look at them closely, because I noticed two of the strings had slight gashes in them at the nut ends. No big deal to me, I always restring soon after getting a guitar. The tone is flawless across all strings and clear down to the twentieth fret. My hand fits like a glove into the cut-a-way. My fingers had easy access to the low E string at the fret twenty! I did not find that to be true with other, more expensive, guitars I compared. I like the knob and toggle locations. It is easy to make quick modifications without stopping. I have a slight issue with the jack location. I preferred it more toward the end. If you are like me, you will not put this guitar down. Jim Lair

        Comments about Ibanez Artstar Series AF255BM Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

        I've been playing for fun for fifty years. I bought an AF255BM Blue Lagoon for myself for Christmas last year. Totally beautiful. It sounded a little dull at first, out of the box, but after a couple hours of playing the tone opened up and it's been great ever since. Action was set up just perfect for me, but if you want to adjust it, it's easy. Most of my playing is to accompany my voice, singer, songwriter, I do a lot of different stuff, originals, American Songbook, broadway, country, cowboy, western, jazz, rock, blues, a little Spanish and Italian, anything I like that adapts to my style of singing and playing, which is kind of country rocky jazzy bluesy, and it's good for it all. Ten thumbs up.
