For decades, Ibanez has been re-energizing the hollow body world with a wide variety of original designs, unrivaled playability and polished tone. By closely working with many legendary artists, Ibanez is constantly striving to experiment, innovate and deliver. This enthusiasm for exploration has led to the creation of the Contemporary Archtop series. Specifically designed to meet the demands of today’s cutting edge players. Selected tone woods, outstanding craftsmanship, custom pickups and reliable hardware, are all elements carefully chosen for inspiring serious and experienced players. The Contemporary Archtop series is an invitation to take your guitar style on a new musical journey.

Classic hollowbody design with premium tonewoods

True to form, the Ibanez AFC95 is completely hollow. Its spruce top, flame maple back and sides are made of sonically lively and visually stunning. A set-in nyatoh/maple neck and bound ebony fretboard contribute to the excellent playability of the AFC95. String vibrations are transferred faithfully from the ebony base of the bridge to the carved spruce top for optimal sound. At every point in the Ibanez AFC95 build process, premium tonewoods are used to create the best-sounding guitar possible.

Sweet, singing Magic Touch-Mini humbuckers

For electronics, the instrument is equipped with a pair of Magic Touch-Mini humbucking pickups in the neck and bridge positions. These pickups provide a balanced, classic tone with clarity and articulation, allowing you to play fast chromatic lines or clearly-defined complex chord shapes. You’ll find tone and volume knobs for each pickup, along with a 3-way pickup selector switch. Alongside clear articulation on both the top and bottom of the sound spectrum, you can enjoy the clean response on the top end, presenting fast melodies or complex chord progressions with clarity and precision.

Fat hollowbody tone for any gig

Hollowbody guitars like the AFC95 are used cross-genre in jazz, rockabilly, and many other styles of music. Hollowbodies have even been deployed in rock, fusion, and country settings. Get your Ibanez AFC95 from Music Experience and start playing with big, rich hollowbody tone today!

Ibanez: a brief history

Ibanez began its life in 1908 as the Hoshino Gakki company in Nagoya, Japan. However, the company didn’t get into the guitar business until 1929, when they started importing Salvador Ibanez guitars from Spain. In 1935, Hoshino Gakki began building Spanish acoustic guitars under the Ibanez Salvador name, which was later shortened to Ibanez. Although Ibanez began manufacturing electric guitars in 1957, the company was relatively unknown in the West until the 1960s, when they started producing guitars based on American designs. By the late 1970s, Ibanez had stopped producing derivative guitars and had begun manufacturing the original designs that the company is now known for. Ibanez is also famous for their effects pedals (most notably the Tube Screamer) and guitar amplifiers.
