Launched last week in NAMM we have news of some Ibanez models that will be hitting the shores soon and they look great. There’s 3 new jazz guitars AFJ81 AFJ85 and a new George Benson signature guitar a LGB300. The price on the AFJ81 and AFJ85 are likely to be around £400/450 which is amazing, that’s a lot of guitar for the money. Although the spec sheet doesn’t say it they look to both be 17″ bodies as opposed to the others in the Artcore range which are around 16″ which makes them more comfortable to play for some and should have a positive effect on tone as well. For me I would (predictably) say that they have cut corners with the pickup though, a cheap ceramic which comes with it just doesn’t cut the mustard; a Bare Knuckle in the neck and you’d have an absolutely stunning guitar!
