There's something enticing about the look of an older, vintage guitar well worn with battle scars, earned throughout its years of hard use
Much like a vintage leather jacket or rare antique furnishings, it immediately feels comfortable and sets a tone unlike anything brand new, right off the shelf
It's this idea that inspired the new Ibanez Artcore Vintage Series
Lurking beneath its aged looking fa§ade and smoky, low gloss finish is a single cutaway hollowbody that can handle anything from Jazz standards to country and western
Details: Ibanez's Artcore Vintage Series AFBV200ATCL hollowbody bass may just give you a serious case of nostalgia. The top and fully hollow body are formed from bright sparkling maple to create a balanced, vintage-like tone. You'll get sustain for days from the 3-piece maple/mahogany set neck and bound rosewood fingerboard. A set of Classic Elite pickups with 3-way switching and a tone control knob let you dial in the classic thump and growl of the early rock years. Ibanez topped off the vintage vibe on the AFBV200ATCL has a great hand-marked finish for great a retro look that fits right in with the tone.
