There’s something enticing about the look of an older, vintage guitar—well worn with battle scars, earned throughout its years of hard use. Much like a vintage leather jacket or rare antique furnishings, it immediately feels comfortable and sets a tone unlike anything brand new, right off the shelf. It’s this idea that inspired the new Ibanez Artstar Vintage Series.
Lurking beneath its artfully distressed façade and low gloss, aged finish is a sophisticated semi-hollow, made to handle almost any musical challenge imaginable. The ASV100DG’s 3-piece Mahogany/Maple set-in neck features a bound Ebony fretboard with Acrylic/Abalone block inlays, medium frets, and Artstar Fret Edge Treatment for a fast, super smooth feel.
For extended tonal flexibility—two Ibanez Super 58 pickups combined with a coil-tapping switch for the neck pickup, allow you to select Humbucker in series or single coil sound. An ART-1 bridge provides improved sustain and tuning stability. Includes hardshell case.

The semi-hollow body gives this guitar a nice full, warm tone. Action is great.
