If you want a hollowbody electric guitar with classic looks and premium modern touches — all for a song — then take a good look at the Ibanez Artcore Expressionist AF95FM. This beautiful instrument exudes an elegant, old-school vibe while delivering state-of-the-art playability and tonal expressiveness. The AF95FM features a fast 3-piece mahogany/maple set neck and a gorgeous flame maple body with vintage-style F-holes. Your fingers will fly across the AF95FM’s silky-smooth bound ebony fingerboard. Loaded with a pair of Super 58 humbuckers, the Ibanez AF95FM is a jazz box that’s ready for any musical adventure.

    Classic hollowbody design with premium tonewoods

    True to form, the Ibanez AF95FM is completely hollow. Its top, back, and sides are made of sonically lively, visually stunning flame maple. A set-in mahogany/maple neck and bound ebony fretboard contribute to the excellent playability of the AF95FM. String vibrations are transferred faithfully from the ebony base of the ART-1 bridge to the carved maple top for optimal sound. At every point in the Ibanez AF95FM build process, premium tonewoods are used to create the best-sounding guitar possible.

    Sweet, singing Super 58 humbuckers

    Ibanez Super 58 humbucking pickups deliver warm, balanced tone with excellent articulation. They’re beautifully responsive to your pick attack and guitar’s volume control, serving up a mellifluous tonal range that not only works brilliantly for jazz, but for many other musical styles as well. The original Super 58 was the pickup of choice for jazz heavies such as Pat Metheny, George Benson, and John Scofield on their own Ibanez signature models. But as guitarist Eric Krasno has proven with his bands Soulive and Lettuce, Super 58 pickups are star performers in any genre.

    Fat hollowbody tone for any gig

    Hollowbody guitars like the AF95FM are used cross-genre in jazz, rockabilly, and many other styles of music. Hollowbodies have even been deployed in rock, fusion, and country settings. Get your Ibanez AF95FM from Music Experience and start playing with big, rich hollowbody tone today!

    Ibanez: a brief history

    Ibanez began its life in 1908 as the Hoshino Gakki company in Nagoya, Japan. However, the company didn’t get into the guitar business until 1929, when they started importing Salvador Ibanez guitars from Spain. In 1935, Hoshino Gakki began building Spanish acoustic guitars under the Ibanez Salvador name, which was later shortened to Ibanez. Although Ibanez began manufacturing electric guitars in 1957, the company was relatively unknown in the West until the 1960s, when they started producing guitars based on American designs. By the late 1970s, Ibanez had stopped producing derivative guitars and had begun manufacturing the original designs that the company is now known for. Ibanez is also famous for their effects pedals (most notably the Tube Screamer) and guitar amplifiers.

    What Ibanez Says...

    For a decade now, Ibanez has continued to energize the hollow-body segment with wide range of designs-with everything from rockin' hybrids to straight-up jazz-boxes. The new Expressionist line begins yet another chapter in the Artcore story. The Expressionist difference? Jazz fans will recognize the Ibanez original Super 58 pickups-the preferred pickup of George Benson, Pat Metheny and John Scofield on their own Signature models. A jazz favorite, yes, but as funk guitarist Eric Krasno has been proving, the Super 58s perform well in a variety of situations. Warm, balanced articulation, and excellent response characterize the Super 58 pickups.
