The guitar pictured is the actual guitar you will receive!
At The Farm, we take actual pictures of each instrument and make sure they are fully set-up and ready to play before we ship them. Each instrument goes through a multi-point inspection, followed by a set-up process by our in-house tech staff. We then photograph each instrument with high-quality equipment in our on-site photography studio. We know that details like wood grain and color finishes can vary, so we want you to be able to see, to the best of our ability, exactly what you will be receiving.
This process takes over an hour for each instrument - from inspection to pictures. We care about the instrument we put into your hands! Rest assured your guitar was not just plucked off of a shelf and drop-shipped to you from a warehouse without the care that it, and you, deserve.
For decades, Ibanez has been re-energizing the hollow body world with a wide variety of original designs, unrivaled playability and polished tone. By closely working with many legendary artists, Ibanez is constantly striving to experiment, innovate and deliver. This enthusiasm for exploration has led to the creation of the Contemporary Archtop series that is specifically designed to meet the demands of today's cutting edge players. Selected tone woods, outstanding craftsmanship, custom pickups and reliable hardware, are all elements carefully chosen for inspiring serious and experienced players. The AFC155 Contemporary Archtop is an invitation to take your guitar style on a new musical journey.
The AFC155 Contemporary Archtop hollow body electric guitar features a laminate select Spruce top with flame Maple back and sides in Jet Blue Burst finish. As well as providing its stylish appearance, these features help provide a balanced tone, and with the addition of plywood top, help to avoid unnecessary feedback.
The 3 piece Mah/ Maple set-in neck and bound Ebony fretboard with Artstar hand rolled fret edge treatment provide maximum playing comfort and smooth articulation. The rock solid Ebony compensated bridge gives the output a clear intonation, longer sustain and acoustic resonance.
The AFC155 is equipped with the Ibanez custom made “Magic Touch-Mini” humbucker pickups, providing a balance of classic tones, alongside clear articulation on both the top and bottom of the sound spectrum. Players can enjoy the clean response on the top end, presenting fast melodies or complex chord progressions with clarity and precision. The bottom end also has a deep warm and rich classic sound, but with a clarity specially adjusted to help avoid muddy low end tones. Thanks to floating mount, the "Magic Touch-Mini" pickups do not dampen the guitars natural body vibration, thus allowing a bigger, richer acoustic tone.
Additonal appointments include a larger headstock design and newly designed pickguard, VT14 tailpiece and specially designed AFC wood cover, Mother of Pearl off-set block fretboard inlays and gold hardware. Comes with a hardshell case.
You are buying a high quality instrument made of wood. Each instrument goes thorough a pre-shipment inspection to ensure you are getting a great quality instrument. However, please keep in mind when instruments are shipped they can endure temperature changes as well as doing the "shipper shuffle" and therefore minor adjustments may be needed to set up the instrument to your personal preferences after receiving it.
Included in your shipment will be instructions on care and maintenance.
