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. Now, Ibanez proudly 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.

Treated New Zealand Pine has gone through an advanced seasoning process which yields a harder, more durable piece of wood. As a result, it offers enhanced stability while producing a rich warm tone.
The Classic Elite pickups offer rich, nuanced tone with fat low-end.
The ART-1 bridge provides improved sustain and tuning stability.
The Quik Change III tailpiece enables faster and easier string changing.
The Sure Grip III knobs are designed for precise control with nonslip functionality, along with smooth and classic looks.
