This guitar is one of the best archtops you will play in this price range. Those "Magic Touch Mini" humbuckers have a great tone, and the set up on this guitar is great, nice playing all up and down the fretboard. There are lots of things to love about this guitar, check out what Ibanez has to say below:

Here is what Ibanez says about the AFC155:

For many decades, Ibanez has been re-energizing the hollowbody world with a wide variety of original designs, unrivaled playability and polished tones. By closely working with many legendary artists Ibanez is constantly striving to experiment, innovate and deliver. This enthusiasm for exploration has led to the Contemporary Archtop series, customized specifically to meet the demands of today’s cutting edge players.

The AFC155 features a larger headstock design, 3-piece Mahogany/ Maple set-in neck and bound Ebony fretboard with hand rolled fret edge treatment, thus providing maximum playing comfort and smooth articulation. It's built with a selected Spruce top, Flamed Maple back and sides with Flamed Maple bound hollow body, all dressed in beautiful high gloss transparent finish. As well as providing its stylish appearance these features help provide a balanced tone, and with the addition of plywood top, help to avoid unnecessary feedback. The rock solid Ebony compensated bridge give the output a clear intonation, longer sustain and acoustic resonance.

The AFC155 comes with the Ibanez custom made “Magic Touch-Mini” humbucker pickups, providing a balance of classic tones, alongside clear articulation on both the top and bottom of the sound spectrum. Players can enjoy the clean response on the top end, presenting fast melodies or complex chord progressions with clarity and precision. The bottom end also has a deep warm and rich classic sound, but with a clarity specially adjusted to help avoid muddy low end tones.

This tonal balance is complimented by the pickups’ extra sensitivity that clearly captures and accentuates the players pick attack and plucking style opening the possibilities of a wide range of playing techniques. Thanks to floating mount, the “Magic Touch-Mini” pickups do not dampen the guitars natural body vibration, thus allowing a bigger richer acoustic tone. These are all complimented by the newly designed pickguard, tailpiece cover and wooden control knobs. The AFC155 comes with hardshell case.

FAQ, frequently asked questions

Why are instruments sent to a refurbisher?  The instrument could be a discontinued model, have a finish imperfection, or need a minor repair.

Who refurbishes your instruments?  All of my instruments come from the largest and best refurbisher in the country, where any issue found is corrected by a factory trained and authorized luthier.

Does a refurbished instrument have the manufacturer warranty?  No, any instrument sent to a refurbisher, regardless of the reason it was sent there, no longer carries the manufacturer warranty.

Will I need to set up my instrument when I receive it?  All of my instruments have been set-up before shipping, so most are ready to play out of the box.  However some instruments may need a minor adjustment after shipping due to changes in temperature, humidity, and  getting bumped around during shipping.

What identifies an instrument as being refurbished?  Ibanez requires that a new serial number be issued for any instrument sent to a refurbisher.  This is to prevent an unethical dealer from concealing the fact that the instrument was sent to a refurbisher.
