Ibanez AF75TDG Artcore Electric Guitar Customer Review
This reviewer purchased this item from Same Day Music.
The sound out of this guitar is great. The strings are pretty good, but should be replaced soon. I am enjoying practicing with this guitar as an acoustic because the sound is clean. The humbuckers aren't the best, but it's better than most. It's a little muddy amped up. Don't run this guitar on distortion unless you want massive hum.
The tremolo is pretty good, and the guitar keeps in tune despite hours of playing. There is only a problem with one string that gets out of tune, but I have yet to get this guitar set up yet. The materials are awesome. It can tolerate getting hit, but I don't recommend using this guitar as a metal axe, slamming it into everything.
Ease of Use:
The action is pretty good.
There were only minor paint issues with the neck and binding. It's a good value for the price. It's no Gretsch, but it doesn't pretend to be. It's my only guitar at the moment, so I plan on getting another guitar as a backup. The neck is smooth as silk.
Overall a good value for the price. I got a case with mine for only some dollars more.
The Wow Factor:
The sex appeal of this guitar is tremendous. She has the smoothest and mellowest sound. She just needs a good amp to back her up. With a little change of the strings, a good setup, and a good amp, she would be the happiest angel.
