Today, Lawman Guitars is Presenting...

A really cool and unique guitar. Its a 2008 Ibanez Art 300 Black Caiman with the awesome Active Ibanez IBZ-LZ Pickups...What a finish...looks like a Caiman skin.... very textured...
This one is a Black Caiman although the lights of my studio made it take on a brownish look. Its very dark in most lights. These cool guitars were made from 2008 thru 2011. The Black Caiman was the first introduced in 2008. What a cool guitar. All original including the case...
This cool guitar is beautiful but no without a few war wounds. Just superficial ... pics of two that are of note. See pics 9 and 10.

Be sure to check out the video demo we did for this cool guitar!

Here's some info we found on the web regarding these cool guitars...

The ART300 is an solid body electric guitar model introduced by in 2008. It was produced in China.

A unique feature of the ART300 is a textured maple top which is made to resemble caiman skin. Other features include a mahogany body mated to a set-in mahogany neck with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with binding and diamond-shaped pearloid position markers. Components include dual Ibanez active LoZ powered by two AA batteries, a Tune-o-matic style Gibraltar III bridge with Quik Change III tailpiece and black speed knobs.

Blackberry Caiman and Green Caiman finishes were added to the lineup in 2009 and the Violet Caiman finish was added for 2010.

The is a similar model without the textured top.

We set the guitar up with a new set of 9's and it plays great with nice low fast action. The diamond fret markers are very cool as is the unique textured top! What a cool guitar!

Check out the original Hard Shell Case is comes with. All latches, hinges and original handle are here as is the accessory box and back restraint strap. A very cool durable case for your cool guitar.

Sold as is as its used. However, I have been hand picking my customers instrument for over 20 years now and they all loved the guitars I found them. This cool Ibanez will certainly not be an exception.

Thanks for checking out our cool guitars, parts and gear!
