With vintage guitars as popular as they’ve become, their cost has skyrocketed in recent years. Even relic’d new guitars are often outrageously over-priced. Ibanez offers Artcore Vintage—the alternative to pricey vintage instruments. The Artcore Vintage "aging" process applies to hardware and other appointments, as well as the body, giving each guitar a convincingly real, worn appearance.
The Ibanez Artcore Vintage Series AFV10A Hollowbody Electric Guitar has many features that players seek in an archtop. The maple body is lightly aged with a width of 15.75" at the lower bout and a set mahogany neck. The rosewood fingerboard is bound and sports 20 medium frets with aged white block inlays. Electronics include Classic Elite pickups from Ibanez and individual controls. All of the hardware is aged, from the trapeze tailpiece to the pickup overs and tuners, adding to the distinguished look of this jazzbox. Case sold separately.

The good: Good tone, great sustain. Neck is slightly chuncky but works good for me-easy play.
Cool looking no bling is a plus, also this guitar unplugged has good volume for an electric--can use for practice late night.
The bad: side wood sticks out past the binding top and bottom all way around--tuners low quality.
Considering the price the guitar is still a keeper and would buy it again.
