This Classy Hollowbody Plays Like a Dream

If you want a classic-looking hollowbody electric guitar with premium modern touches, all for a song, then take a good look at the Ibanez AF75. This beautiful instrument features a set-in mahogany neck and an all-maple body with vintage-style F holes, a look and style that conjures up old-time tones while offering excellent tonal expression. One particularly classy touch is the AF75's bound rosewood fretboard. Loaded with a pair of ACH humbuckers, the Ibanez AF75 hollowbody is ready to plug in and let loose.

Ibanez AF75 Hollowbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Classic hollowbody design and tonewoods
  • ACH humbucking pickups capture electric sound and acoustic resonance, without 60-cycle hum
  • Fat hollowbody tones for any gig
Classic hollowbody design and tonewoods

In true hollowbody fashion the Ibanez AF75 is completely hollow and at the standard 2.75" depth. The top, back, and sides are made of toneful maple. A set-in mahogany neck and rosewood fretboard contribute to the warm-sounding characteristics of the AF75. String vibrations are transferred from the rosewood base of the ART1 bridge to the carved maple top. At every point in the Ibanez AF75 premium tonewoods were used to create the best sounding guitar possible.

ACH humbucking pickups capture electric sound and acoustic resonance, without 60-cycle hum

Early hollowbody and semi-hollowbody electric guitars had wonderfully expressive tone that came with serious hum issues. That's why Ibanez and other guitar makers quickly developed special humbuckers, such as the ACH series models. These special humbuckers preserve your AF75 hollowbody guitar's bite, but ditch the 60Hz hum and other noise. What's more, ACH humbuckers give the AF75 a unique sonic character that you're sure to have fun with. The AF75's pickups use ceramic magnets for that sweet, singing tone associated with hollowbody guitars. Take it from the Sweetwater crew - the Ibanez AF75 has the big hollowbody tone you've been looking for.

Fat hollowbody tones for any gig

Hollowbody guitars are used in most genres of music. The AF75 is great for jazz, rockabilly, and many other styles of music. Don't forget that hollowbodies have also been used in rock 'n' roll, fusion, and even country bands. Get the Ibanez AF75 and start playing with big, fat hollowbody tone today!

I love this thing!!!! great sound, on or off amp, great playability, I hate setting it down. Finish is wonderful and I am incrediablity happy!!!
Music background: novice

Great Value For The Money

Very happy with this guitar. Finish is excellent all around. I am very happy with the tone and it sounds great with my Marshall MG30CFX and also my Fender Acoustasonic. I lowered the action just a quarter turn without a problem. The pick guard was loose but just needed a screw to be tightened up. I bought a hard shell case for it which also was nice. Johnny Blaul at Sweetwater has been very helpful with all my purchases.

My first Ibanez

Tone and playability are great! Much better than I thought a $400 guitar could sound and play. Action and intonation was great right out of the box, thank you Sweetwater for making my bridge request a reality. These SW guys are the bomb. String gauge is a bit light with the installed 9's might bump it to 10's. I gave it a 4.5 rating because of some finish discoloration. Neck is great too, no string roll and fret work is commendable. Worth the price of admission, its a great way to find out if full size hollow bodies is something you would like to have. Sweetwater is the best.....won't go anywhere else.
