With Les Paul-esque looks and a reasonable price tag, the Ibanez Artist AR100 electric guitar is a great alternative choice for Les Paul seekers. The AR100 began its run either in the very late '70s or very early '80s -- either way, the earlier models are worth just a bit more than their modern successors. With a Les Paul style and sound, the Artist AR100 features 2 uncovered humbuckers, a sleek double-cutaway, and comes in four finishes.

  • Ibanez AR100 1982

    Verified Purchase

    A very professional Les Paul style guitar, mahogany with a full maple cap, excellent hardware. Mine, a 1982, has the Super 58 pickups; some others from this era have hotter Dimarzio pickups.
