Ibanez has updated their Artcore series of basses with the AGB205 and the AFB200SRD. As part of the Artcore line, the acoustic/electric basses follow vintage aesthetic and sport 30.3″ scales.
The AFB200SRD is built constructed with a 3-piece maple/mahogany neck, a maple body, and a bound rosewood fingerboard. It offers a new Sunset Red finish and a newly designed pickguard. The pickups are a pair of ACHB humbuckers controlled with a 3-way pickup selector as well as Volume and Tone controls. The ART-1 wooden bridge is rosewood.
The Ibanez AGB205 is the line’s first 5-string model. While it shares many of the same features as the AFB200SRD, its bridge is an Artcore Custom 5 Bridge made of milled brass.
The Ibanez Artcore AGB205 and AFB200RSD are set to ship this month with street prices of $599.99.
