Custom-built, made-in-Japan quality for the serious professional.
Those who’ve followed Ibanez jazz guitars through the decades may see Artstar Prestige as the completion of a circle. The guitar maker for numerous names on Downbeat’s Readers’ polls—master players like George Benson and Pat Metheny are a testament to the preeminence of made-in-Japan Ibanez jazz guitars. Artcore, Expressionist, and Artstar offer up-and-comers inspiring instruments that won’t break the bank. Now, Artstar Prestige offers custom-built, made-in-Japan quality for the serious professional.
The Mahogany top, back and sides deliver rich, full-bodied warm tone. The bound Ebony fretboard sports medium frets and Mother of Pearl block inlays. The luthier’s skill becomes immediately apparent upon playing your first chord progression on its bound Ebony fretboard, inlaid with Pearl/ Abalone blocks. Medium frets with meticulously hand-filed edges are buttery smooth to your chording hand, promising hours of inspired playing.
The set-in neck is immaculately joined to the body, and its Gotoh 510BN bridge is the perfect blend of traditional style and technological integrity. At the headstock end of the fingerboard is a clean, perfectly set bone nut. Rounding out this stunningly crafted piece is the famous Ibanez Super 58 pickup, known for its balanced tone character and sonic fullness, whether restrained to “jazz-clean” or cranked up to “gritty rockin’ blues.” Hardshell case is included.
