Artstars standard specifications feature a Bone nut, Ebony fretboard, and Ibanezs signature Super 58 custom pickups. These features have been well received by many jazz and blues musicians worldwide. The Ebony fretboard provides a tight response and contrasts with the aged Acrylic block inlay. The 3pc Mahogany/Maple set-in neck has proven its reliability in thousands of Ibanez hollow and semi-hollow bodies throughout the years.
Equipped with Super 58 pickups, it can deliver the smooth, nuanced tones of jazz or the biting growls of blues. The Bone nut adds a rich tone from low to high. The Artstar fret edge treatment allows smooth left-hand fingering, and the traditional single cutaway design helps ease access to upper fret positions. This model features a beautifully framed Maple top, back, and sides, bound with white binding- a stylish look that carries over to the headstock and fretboard as well. The Nonslip Sure Grip III knobs support accurate volume and tone control and offer a classic look.
