Ibanez Artcore AG95 Hollow Body Electric Guitar

Ibanez Artcore AG95 Hollow Body Electric Guitar

The Ibanez AG95 is a true, full-hollow body guitar with a slightly smaller body width than the AF traditional dimensions but the same depth. Features include a gorgeous figured bubinga body with Artcore humbuckers and a set-in neck. Ibanez Artcore Why make full and semi-acoustic guitars? They've never been as popular as the more common solid-bodies. They take more time to build. They take more time to set-up and inspect. So why has Ibanez remained fully committed over four decades to making full and semi-acoustic guitars? Because making jazz guitars - like playing jazz - is more about love than money. And Ibanez loves jazz and they love making jazz guitars. And you know, if you've ever played a 'jazz box,' that nothing else sounds or plays like one. Ibanez Guitars - A Short History Of A Company With A Long History If you wanted a total history of Ibanez you'd have go back to 1908 when a company named Hoshino began as a sheet music store and later music products distributor in Nagoya Japan. If you wanted a little less completeness than that you'd go back about forty-five when Hoshino began distributing a Spanish guitar named Ibanez. Or perhaps you'd simply go to the Mid 60's when Hoshino, who by that time had purchased the rights to the Ibanez name, began shipping incredibly funky looking guitars to the United States, many of which were actually sold in department stores. But for most of us, Ibanez pretty much begins almost 30 years ago, when Hoshino opened an office near Philadelphia, PA for more efficiently distributing Ibanez guitars to the United States. Most of those guitars were Ibanez' famous high quality (but very inexpensive) copies of just about everything you name it, we probably made a version of it. At that time many American instruments were going through an unfortunate period of increasing prices with decreasing quality, and these copies hit a ready market. But the people with Ibanez weren't content with just copying and Ibanez began making their own designs: the solid body Artists (played by Bob Weir of the Dead) the Iceman (first made famous by Paul Stanley of KISS and the George Benson guitars, the first jazz boxes designed for higher volume stage playing. Many of these 'first' Ibanez guitars continue to increase in value and a good number are now highly prized collector's items. By 1976, the Ibanez copy era officially came to an end when one of the major American guitar manufacturers--no longer amused by the copiers successfully sued the highest profile copier, Ibanez. But by that time it didn't matter Ibanez had already left the copies behind and was fast becoming an innovative guitar company in its own right. By the mid-80's with the interest in instrumental rock guitar on the rise, Ibanez collaborated with players such as Steve Vai, Joe Satriani and Paul Gilbert and brought out the JEM, JS, RG and S models.
