A lot of musicians gave the highest grades to the Ibanez ART100 and for good reason. It's one of those guitars that look good and sound great, and all at a very affordable price.
The ART100 is a single-cutaway with a Mahogany body and neck, a bound rosewood fingerboard with 22 medium sized frets and features a tribal-like inlay at the 12th fret.
The guitar features Ibanez's own Artcore 1-S pickups that produce nice tone with a good variety between clean and distorted sounds. Its full clean sound is especially suited to most kinds of rock music.
It has a great finish that looks good out of the box. The guitar's design is clean and practical.
