Ibanez expands their Artist Series guitars with the versatile Ibanez AR420, featuring Tri-Sound pickup switching.
This guitar features the curvy AR shape, which is one of the first original guitar designs that Ibanez produced.
The body of the new Ibanez AR420 features an arched mahogany body with a tiger maple top matching its Violin Sunburst finish. This wood combination is wrapped by an Abalone binding that enhances the guitar's overall aesthetics.
Just like other AR series guitars, it comes with a 3-pc maple set-in neck with Ibanez' trademark thin and fast playability. It has a scale length of 24.75", and its bound rosewood fretboard is graced by pearl/abalone block inlays.The sound of the guitar is captured by Super 58 pickups that were custom made to mimic the moderate output and vintage tone of old pickups. Each pickup feature a Tri-sound switch which lets you choose from series, parallel & coil-tap wiring configuration to give you tonal flexibility. Other electronic appointments include dedicated Sure Grip III volume and tone knobs.
The Ibanez AR420 is currently retailing for $649.99. It was released alongside another new AR series guitar, the AR325 featuring figured Bubinga top and finish options that include dark brown sunburst or transparent red.
