Ibanez AG85 BKF AG Artcore Expressionist Hollow Body Electric Guitar 6 String with Gig Bag
Colors :BKF : Black Flat
The AG features a slightly smaller body width than the more traditional AF dimensions. However, the same depth and true full-hollow body construction make for a big, warm, and powerful sound.
For more than a decade, Ibanez has continued to energize the hollow-body market with wide range of designs including everything from rockin’ semi-hollow hybrids to straight-up traditional jazz-boxes. The Artcore Expressionist line established yet another chapter in the Artcore story. The Expressionist difference? Jazz fans will recognize the Ibanez original Super 58, the preferred pickup of George Benson, Pat Metheny and John Scofield on their own Signature models. A favorite among jazz players, but as funk guitarist Eric Krasno has been proving, the Super 58s perform well in a variety of situations. Warmth, balanced articulation, and excellent response are defining characteristic the Super 58 pickups.
