Thinline-style Electric with a Distressed Look

The Ibanez Artcore Vintage has the style and tones you want for jazz to blues to rock 'n' roll, with standard features you might not expect at this price point. Sweetwater guitarists appreciate the Artcore's distressed satin finish and worn hardware, which give it a lived-in look and commanding presence on or off the stage. A maple top and body give this guitar fullness and projection, while a mahogany set-in neck gives it immediate resonance and sustain. Finally, a pair of vintage-styled Custom Elite humbucking pickups delivers glassy chords and juicy leads, with a familiar switching system that will make the Artcore Vintage feel comfortable in most players' hands right out of the box.

Ibanez Artcore Vintage Semi-Hollowbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Authentic look and tone for blues to rock
  • Quality construction with an affordable price tag
  • Distressed satin finish has gig-ready appeal
Authentic look and tone for blues to rock music

A reduced Thinline-style body gives the Artcore Vintage the feel you love and a look your audience expects for blues, shoegaze, indie, and classic rock. A pair of vintage-styled Ibanez Custom Elite humbuckers range from sparkling clean to full-and-gritty, while a classic semi-hollowbody F-hole design cuts down on weight and helps to mellow out aggressive playing.

Quality construction with an affordable price tag

The Artcore Vintage has bold features for a semi-hollow in this price range: a set mahogany neck gives your leads immediate, lasting sustain, and a maple top, back, and sides gives your chord-comping guts with enough clarity to cut through a mix even when your tone is rolled back.

Distressed satin finish has gig-ready appeal

The worn-in guitar look is en vogue. The Artcore Vintage saves you the cost of paying a specialist to nick your finish and soak your hardware without voiding your warranty. This helps to convey authority to your audience, and saves you the embarrassment of getting caught playing blues with a factory-new instrument.

Ibanez Artcore Vintage Semi-Hollowbody Electric Guitar Features:
  • Affordable Thinline-style electric guitar with a modern cut
  • Classic look and tone for blues, jazz, and rock 'n' roll
  • Distressed finish and hardware adds authority to your stage presence
  • Maple top, back, and sides for warmth and projection
  • Set mahogany neck has sustain for days
  • Rosewood fingerboard with fret binding and acrylic block inlays
  • Classic Elite humbuckers (neck and bridge) deliver juicy vintage tones
  • 3-way pickup switch with 2 volume and 2 tone knobs
  • Adjustable ART1 bridge with stop tailpiece
Road-worn looks meets classic tone in the Ibanez Artcore Vintage series!

Ibanez Artcore Series Is Amazing

First of all, understand that I already own three Ibanez Artcore instruments: an AS93 and both the 4- and 5-string versions of the AGBV bass. I recently got the notion to pick up an AM vintage guitar. I decided that the smaller body would be useful for those occasional cramped venues, but I was a bit worried that the reduced size might affect the sound. Wow, was I ever wrong! Although this guitar can purr like a kitten when I want it to, it can also roar and growl like a beast. It's light but well-balanced, the neck is vintage fat, and the finish is superb. I couldn't be more pleased. I am now a true believer in the Ibanez Artcore series, especially the Vintage models.

Beautiful Instrument

Mainly a keyboard player, but I've been playing around with various guitars trying to teach myself. When I saw this in the catalog I knew I had to have it. I've had Ibanez bass guitars in the past, and they were really nice quality so I decided to try this model and WOW it's awesome! The look and the feel of this guitar is just what I was looking for. My Sweetwater rep even sent me photos of my actual guitar before it shipped! Very happy!!

Wow -this guitar is a dream come true

This guitar has a great feel to it even when played "unplugged" - but once you plug it in - get ready for some serious vintage tone! Sound is amazing! I'd have to describe it as "huge and ambient" when played via amplifier or amp-smiulator. The neck is big and has a stiff and solid feel to it. Fingerboard is clean and precise like what you'd expect from Ibanez. I'd say the fretboard is similar to a Gibson Les Paul in some respects. It's not light but rather heavy considering it's a semi hollow body type guitar. Great piece of work from Ibanez. Buy It! You'll love it!

Best semi-hollow under $1000 perhaps more

I'd recommend buying from Sweetwater if you can. I ended up getting mine from GC because I was doing a trade in of a Carvin, was thinking Baja tele, but wanted to try out a bunch of guitars to complement what I already own: a strat and the gretsch. I played Gibsons and Fenders under a grand (though they didn't have a baja in the store) I played them all through a Fender blues amp. First this Ibanez has the best neck if you love fat necks, nice and round. I'd say between a big C and D shape as the sides of the neck are substantial, not soft V like. Surprisingly good upper fret access, similar to a Les Paul. I compared it with $1000 gibsons and Fenders. This had smoothest frets, not gritty. Good action, (whereas the rest of GC guitars I touched had serious bowing going on, all needing a tightening of truss rod.) No buzzing anywhere on this. It sounded resonate and awesome unplugged with good sustain. Stayed in tune as well or better than the others. Then I plugged it in. It sounded huge, warm, bright, dimensional in both pickups. Whereas every other guitar I plugged in sounded comparatively squeally in the bridge and/or too dark in the neck depending on how you set up the amp. . Whereas with this guitar it sounded balanced in all pickup configurations. It was easy to find a setting on the amp where all pickup combinations had a useful sound, not so with most guitars I've owned and played, and likewise with my KPA. I used it live this past weekend and got nothing but compliments on the sound. It's pickups have slightly more output than my Gretsch filtertrons and had a chime of their own. In short, this guitar is better than my Gretsch in every way, except it lacks the bigsby and says Ibanez on the headstock. And I really like my Gretsch especially since having it set up by a tech. I can't believe a company whose niche is in metal oriented guitars made this, as it out performs anything the more traditional companies make in this style in anywhere near the price range. If you put Gibson on the headstock and told me it cost $3000 I would have believed you. And I can say that having owned lots of guitars, good american made guitars over the years. Well done Ibanez.
