Employing the finest components and exceptional attention to detail, the Ibanez AF200 Prestige is a hollowbody you'll love for a lifetime.

Flame maple topped with spruce delivers rich sound and great looks

There's no substitute for the mellow and naturally resonant sound of a full-hollowbody electric guitar. Ibanez built the AF200 Prestige to capture the warmth and punch of a classic hollowbody, which is why they built it with a spruce top and flame maple back and sides. Whether you're playing jazz, blues, or any number of modern styles, you're going to love the character the Japanese-made Ibanez AF200 Prestige hollowbody guitar brings to your music. Take it from the Sweetwater guitar experts - Ibanez's Prestige series guitars are sure to please even the pickiest of players!

Super 58 Custom humbucking pickups deliver warm, rich tone

Early hollowbody electric guitars had a wonderfully expressive tone that came with serious hum issues. That's why Ibanez and other guitar makers quickly developed humbuckers such as the Super 58 Custom pickups. These humbuckers preserve your AF200 hollowbody guitar's warmth and punch, but they ditch the 60Hz hum. What's more, the Super 58 humbucker gives the AF200 a slight edge that's perfect for bluesy licks.

Fast and smooth neck with Prestige fret-edge treatment

Ibanez selected one of their smoothest and most comfortable necks for the AF200 Prestige hollowbody guitar. Not only will your hand love the comfortable carve of this 3-piece mahogany/maple neck, but your fingers will also appreciate the beautifully bound ebony fingerboard. For even smoother playability, the AF200 has received Ibanez's Prestige fret-edge treatment. This essentially rounds off the edges of the frets, making the AF200's fretboard feel even more fluid.

Ibanez AF200 Prestige Hollowbody Electric Guitar Features:
  • A Japanese-made full-hollowbody electric guitar
  • Perfect for a wide range of musical styles and playing techniques
  • Spruce top with flame maple back and sides for acoustic resonance and fat tone
  • Dual Super 58 Custom humbucking pickups deliver warm, rich tone

  • Cutaway gives you convenient access to the upper frets

Ibanez AF200

I've taken an interest in learning Jazz guitar and have found my Taylor Acoustic to be, well just lacking the sound I think I need. I knew I needed a guitar that played easy, especially farther up the fretboard, and had the tonal qualities I would expect in a hollow body. After looking at a few high dollar Gibson's and realizing they were way out of my price range, I e-mailed Sweetwater a couple of times with questions which were answered by Ben Robinson. Ben was very helpful in assisting me in making my purchase and in finding the right guitar for me, the Ibanez AF200. What a comfortable and easy guitar to play. Sounds good through my Fender Acoustic amp, and it is very easy on the eyes. Also, I have to add that the care put into the pre-delivery set-up was excellent. For sure, the whole experience was beyond what you might expect ordering sight unseen, and the guitar in my estimation is just as good as the higher price guitar at half the price and the made in Japan quality is flawless.

AF200

This just a great guitar. Made in Japan. The fit, finish, action and setup is five stars. I am waiting for a new amp before I review the tone, however even thru my Fishman LoudBox it sounds excellent. It smooth and jazzy...like it should be. I would recommend this guitar to anyone, pro or student.

Ibanez AF200 Prestige

I am pretty picky about my guitars. The archtops I have owned , Guild X500s, an Artist Award, and a Gibson LeGrande, all have been fantastic. The AF200 (Made in Japan) sits right along with these. As promised, the fret work is top notch. I will set it up the action to my liking, but there isn't a whole lot to do. Notching the nut just a tad deeper and I think it will be good to go. The finish is flawless and the fret board is beautiful. I know it is supposed to be laminate, but the interior curl seems to match the curl on the back. The tone is pure and responds well to the tonal adjustments. For the price, this guitar is an absolute steal. Highly recommended. Customer service is absolutely fantastic. Arend Raby is just a good guy who is very knowledgable. Thanks Sweetwater, you are the real deal.
