Vintage 1976 Ibanez Artist AR100!
"The Real Deal"! Made In Japan!
This is really cool. You are looking at a 1976 Ibanez Artist AR-100. This is a real vintage guitar, made in Japan in the heyday of Ibanez. After the "Law Suit" of copying guitars, Ibanez went in a different direction and came up with a totally unique electric guitar series called the "Artist" There were many different variations of the Artist. This is the AR-100 with the uncovered V2 Humbuckers. This is a real alternative to a Les Paul.
Mahogany Body with a Carved Flame Maple Top. Maple Neck, Rosewood Fretboard, 24 3/4" Scale. This is the Antique Violin Finish (AV). Gold Hardware. Uncovered V2 Humbucker Pickups.
But how does it sound? This AR-100 SCREAMS! Has that 1970's Classic Rock Tone. Sustains FOREVER! That is one big chunk of Mahogany weighing in at just under 9 lbs. Superfast 24 Fret Neck. This is the "Real Deal" If you our looking for a guitar to gig with and want something just a little different, the Ibanez Artist AR-100 is a great choice.
Our luthier did a complete setup. Brand new strings were installed. Gig ready on Arrival!

Case is NOT Included
Cosmetics: Good Condition. There are some light strumming scratches on the Top just below the strings. The back has some belt buckle rash and some dings and dents. The main issue is there are 3 chips on the edge of the bouts on the backside. The largest one is on the lower horn. The next one is near the input jack. The smallest one is near the toggle switch. See pictures (#9, #10, #11). Neck, Fretboard and Headstock in great shape. Gold Hardware is faded and has some pitting. Keep in mind that this is a 41+ year old vintage guitar that has been played. It is used. Not perfect. Good Condition. Overall, a really nice guitar. Look at the pictures closely. They will tell the story.
