Please agree to this term before bidding: It is my aim to have the buyer be happy with this guitar and I have described it exactly as found, so I assume the sale will be final......but....if for some unforeseen reason the buyer negotiates a return, I just ask that buyer pay shipping both ways. PLEASE....do not bid unless you agree. Thanks! (visit my website www.jimbastian.com for great jazz stuff!)
This is a stunning Ibanez jazz guitar, in the Johnny Smith tradition with a floating humbucker. About as close to mint as you can get....frets have no play wear and I can't find a mark on it. It is just beautiful. Someone bought this and then never played it. So, technically this is used but is in pretty much as-new condition.
Model number is AF-105F NT. Natural finish with lots of flame. Excellent joinery and detail work....amazing quality in this price class. Ebony-over-metal tailpiece is a great idea...you get the tone of a Gibson L5 but with great looking wood and abalone inlays. Other notable features inclued floating humbucker with a traditional jazz ala Johnny Smith tone.....nice wide-flat neck (my favorite for jazz)...lots of inlay work on the neck.....sealed tuners in the Schaller style with pearl buttons....lots of detailed binding all over.....comes with 2 bridges: a metal tune-o-matic type and also an ebony saddle for a warmer tone (see pics below)....heavy flame throughout......controls mounted on the pickguard in the George benson style so the top can vibrate freely......5 piece neck with fine craftsmanship.....full hollow body construction. This is a fine playing guitar over the whole neck....plays great.
Manufacturers description: The Ibanez Artcore AF105F Hollowbody Electric Guitar is designed and appointed to be a classy jazzer. It has a fully hollow body with flamed maple on the top and body. The single floating pickup is a special version of Ibanez's Custom 58 humbucker that can deliver sweet tones with singing sustain. The floating mount helps fight feedback. A custom set-in neck joint makes a solid connection between the 5-piece maple/bubinga neck and the body. The bound rosewood fingerboard has 22 medium frets and elegant pearl/abalone inlays. The 24-3/4" scale delivers easy playability. It also has pickguard-mounted pickup controls, custom inlays on the bridge and tailpiece, a pickguard that matches the body, and gold hardware.
