$2,299.99

+ shipping

Up for sale, a 2015 Ibanez AF200 in near-mint, 100% original condition and in perfect working order, complete with the original hardshell case and hangtags. This upper-tiered Ibanez archtop was crafted at the Fujigen factory in Japan as part of the upscale Prestige line, featuring a hollow body design with a spruce top and flame maple back/sides, three-piece mahogany/maple neck, and bound ebony fingerboard.

The tonewoods yield a bold, woody acoustic cut with bold trebles and a complex midrange chop. The Super 58 humbuckers are versatile and dynamic, perfect for everything from glassy cleans to singing, overdriven leads, with a PAF-style tonal palette. The bridge pickup yields a bubbly sparkle and articulate growl, and the neck has a full, throaty roundness. This AF200 weighs 6lbs 6oz, professionally setup here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar with 11-49 flatwound strings, low action, and accurate intonation.
