Click any picture for supersize view!

Ibanez' Artcore line has long impressed me by offering a heck of a lot of guitar at a great price. Excellent looks, cool tones and hip colors. This AFS80T is no exception. The hollow body is made of laminated maple for good tone. The cutaway AFS80 body shape takes the large body width of the AF series but combines it with a body a full inch thinner for a comfortable feel and a punchy tone.  The 24.75 inch scale mahogany neck features a bound rosewood fingerboard with 22 frets. The pickups have been upgraded to a great sounding set of TV Jones Filtertron Classics. Very Gretsch like! A licensed Ibanez Bigsby, Tuneomatic bridge, and sealed tuners round out the hardware. The finish is an awesome metallic green with a contrasting white racing stripe. A great guitar for the bucks!

This Ibanez plays and sounds great. The neck is straight, the action is low and the frets are good. The pickups sound great. Everything works as it should. Condition wise, this guitar shows normal playwear. Light pick and clearcoat scratches and moderate indents and dings. A good looking guitar. Comes in an Ibanez hardshell case.

The Ibanez Artcore line is one of the best deals out there on a hollowbody guitar. Great looks, performance and bang for the buck.  A new AFS80T will cost you $499 in stores plus another $99 for the case. The TV Jones pickups will cost you an additional $270 plus installation. This one is ready to go for a lot less cash.
