Ibanez AFC95-NTF-d Artcore AFC Contemporary Hollowbody Guitar - Natural Flat
Ibanez AFC95-NTF Artcore AFC Semi-Acoustic Guitar, Contemporary Archtop Range, Natural Flat Finish
For more than a decade now Ibanez have been continually rejuvinating and re-energising their hollow-bodied guitar ranges, producing everything from rocking hybrids to straight-up jazz-boxes. With the Contemporary Archtop line (AFC series) we get yet another chapter to the Artcore story.
2018 Contemporary Archtop Series
The fabulous Ibanez AFC95-NTF is a hollow-bodied electric guitar that's perfect for playing Jazz or traditional Blues music. Featuring a Flamed Maple body with Spruce top, smooth and thin maple neck, bound ebony fretboard with block inlays, and an array of gold and wood-covered hardware, this guitar exudes sheer class from the moment you take it out of the box. Not only that but it's available at a stunningly low price for the quality you're getting!
Top Notch Hardware and Electronics
A rock solid Ebony compensated bridge offers clear intonation, longer sustain and enhanced acoustic resonance.
The AFC95 comes fitted with Ibanez's own custom made Magic Touch Mini humbucker pickups which provide classic tones with clear articulation from the top to the bottom of the sound spectrum.
Complex chord progressions and fast melodies are produced wonderfully with clean and clear top end response.
The bottom end produces deep, warm and rich classic sound but with fantastic clarity that has been specially adjusted to avoid muddy low end tones.
The extra sensitivity of the Magic Touch Mini pickups perfectly complements the tonal balance, capturing and accentuating your pick attack and plucking style, nicely opening up the possibilities of a wide range of playing techniques.
The floating mount of the Magic Touch-Mini pickups mean they do not dampen the guitar's natural body resonance allow for a bigger, richer acoustic tone.
The AFC95-NTF is an all-around amazing package. From the beautiful finish accompanied by Mother of Pearl off-set block inlays to the gorgeous binding on the body and fretboard.
The AFC95 is further complimented by a newly designed pickguard, tailpiece cover and wooden control knobs.
