Vintage and "relic'd" Guitars are becoming ever popular in recent years with brands releasing reissues of instruments from yester-year at quite a premium over the standard model. Ibanez say "No!" to this extra cost with the affordable Artcore Vintage series.
The relic process not only applies to the body of the Guitar, but the electric components and hardware as well, resulting in an authentic, ‘road-worn’ finish. The tobacco sunburst finish complements the grain of the maple top wonderfully and contrasts against the antique chrome hardware, making the whole aesthetic of the guitar pop.
The rock n’ roll appearance has a rock n’ roll sound to match. The Classic Elite medium output pickups provide ample output for those who wish to crank it up, yet are still capable of subtlety at lower gain for more jazz oriented settings.
