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.
