When I received this case with my Artcore AF75, I was totally blown away! I could not believe the quality I got for the price I paid! Nice plush interior, very well built wooden case, is road worthy and puts you at ease knowing your baby lays in the best to rest! All I can say is buy it! It is well worth the few extra dollars over a gig bag!

I expected better detail/quality in the build of this case, yet it is strong enough to provide the intended instrument protection. It is a TKL A2218/BL sold with Ibanez logo as the AF100C.
My case arrived with a few manufacture imperfections (cosmetic) so quality control does not seem to be consistent.
Be aware of this when you purchase and you will not experience disappointment.
I have mixed feelings about recommending this product however in fairness, I have to admit is strong, fits guitar well and likely will provide good protection, time will tell...

A benevolent 3 rating because the marginal attention to cosmetics; I have seen better attention to detail in less expensive cases.

A good solid case

By Wow

from Phoenix,AZ

Comments about Ibanez AF100C Artcore Hardshell Case for AF Series Guitars:

This case is very well built, it is a solid case. I often hit my case against walls and etc. but with this case I don't have to worry about my guitar at all. My only gripe is how heavy the case is. It's heavier than my guitar is, so it's like lugging around two guitars.

I bought this case for my Artcore Af75 guitar and it works great, keeps the guitar nice and safe, even when the ride is less than smooth. Highly recommended!

Really, your only option for an Artcore AK or AF

By Anthony Annacchino

from Smyrna, GA

Comments about Ibanez AF100C Artcore Hardshell Case for AF Series Guitars:

I bought this case for my Ibanez Artcore AK80 and it fits perfectly. The guitar is very snug and there is little to no movement when the case is closed. The latches and hinges are sufficient but I wish they were a bit beefier. The same goes for the case material itself - it's good, but I would accept a bit more weight for more protection - especially for an archtop. My only real complaint (and it's a minor one) is that the compartment under the neck is pretty small. BUT, you could probably figure out a way to store stuff in the open space under the neck (next to the compartment) if you wanted to. The bottom line is that this is (I think) the ONLY case made to fit Ibanez AK and AF archtops. (It's actually a TKL case with the Ibanez logo on the outside. All of the tags, including the permanent tag in the case, say TKL.) You may be able to find the TKL case a bit cheaper, so buy that one unless the Ibanez name on the outside is important to you.

Ahh Vanilla. Great Case!

By Mark Mekailian

from Arcadia, CA

Comments about Ibanez AF100C Artcore Hardshell Case for AF Series Guitars:

I recently purchased from guitar center my first jazz guitar (an Ibanez Artcore). I got this hardcase to go along with it, and it's just fine. It's got a real nifty openable compartment under where the neck of the guitar is, and I use that space to hold picks and straps and all other sorts of goods. Nice snug fit to keep my guitar well and safe. Inside also smells like vanilla (at least in my case), and that's a plus. My only complaint is that of the hinges on mine tends to be a little troublesome when I lock up, but it doesn't bother me. Pretty good case, Ibanez! Just watch those hinges.

      Comments about Ibanez AF100C Artcore Hardshell Case for AF Series Guitars:

      I bought an AF100C case for my Ibanez AF155 hollow-body guitar. It's a perfect fit. My only complaint is that the inside of the case smells like vanilla. I've aired it out, placed a box of baking soda in the case, and I just can't get ride of the vanilla aroma. At least it doesn't smell like glue, but I would prefer to have no aroma at all. When you take the guitar out of the case, the guitar smells like vanilla for a few minutes.

          Great case. Fit my Ibanez AF71f archtop very well. The elevated pick guard and controls cleared fine. Plush interior. Added a small humidor due to low humidity(19 percent today).

          Comments about Ibanez AF100C Artcore Hardshell Case for AF Series Guitars:

          Looks nice Inside and out, seems to be reasonably sturdy. There are only three small complaints:
          1- The black stuff is already pulled up in one small spot. Doesn't really bother me; just noticed because it's near the handle.
          2- It's a very heavy case. I'm a big tough man though, so I can handle it.
          3- Open this thing up, and there is a strong, unmistakable smell exactly like play-doh. If you like that smell though, this would be another selling point.
          Altogether I'm really pleased with this case for the money.

          Comments about Ibanez AF100C Artcore Hardshell Case for AF Series Guitars:

          Bought for the AF-75, this is a good case, just like the ones guitars used to come with. Enough room, nice lining, compartment for doo dads. i woul;d call teh depth 'standard' at least seems same as my other much older cases. Any way, not a great case, but if you are old like me, this is what they used to give you to protect your investment.

          Comments about Ibanez AF100C Artcore Hardshell Case for AF Series Guitars:

          Ordered guitar case online, good price etc. But when guitar arrived the tolex was coming unglued. I went in to my local guitar center and they offered a refund with no problem. I instead asked for them to order an other guitar case. When the 2nd guitar case arrived It was also damaged. Looks like it was hit against a wall corner, with a dent exposing the wood that the tolex should cover. Seems like whoever mailed case didn't bother to inspect it, twice. Dissapointing to say the least.
