Every once in a
while a guitar comes along that is so beautiful that
it catches the eyes of everyone that passes by. The
Artist Prestige happens to be one of those guitars with
it's beautiful orange flamed maple top and shimmering
finish. The gold hardware on the body helps make it
shine and look the part even more. You might think that
an electric guitar that looks this good can't possibly
sound truly inspirational and your wrong. The only thing
that is better than the way the Artist Prestige looks
is the way that it sounds and plays.
The Artist Prestige is a re-creation of an earlier
model Ibanez electric guitar that is now a collectors
item. The AR300. The AR300 was ahead of it's time and
it's reincarnation, the Artist Prestige is no different.
When recreating a masterpiece it is important to go
back to your roots. The Ibanez Artist Prestige is made
with a three piece maple neck with gorgeous pearl and
abalone inlays. The Ibanez Artist Prestige also uses
innovative Tri-Sound switches offering a vast range
of tones. This design worked so well for the original
it just does not make any sense to try and improve on
something that has been tried and true.
