zebigfly's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" My favorite guitar"

Ibanez AF125
Made in China of course at this price, but the finish is good. 2 humbuckers S58, tone and volume control for each pickup 3-position selector +.
I can not find any trace of this guitar on the Ibanez website, but on the internet you can easily find literature about it.

UTILIZATION

This is especially the handle which makes me love this guitar, very comfortable; since I feel I play better! and as it is much lighter than the Les Paul, my back says thank you.

SOUNDS

2 S58 give a very good result, side handle with the tone to 3-5 for his jazz and velvet easel side for pure sound Stray Cats. Well, I do not play rockabilly and mellow suits me perfectly, but it's funny at times. Connected to a Hot Rod tube, I finally found THE sound jazzy I wanted. And with an overdrive pedal it leaves velvety sounds good with grain (probably thanks to dual-coil). Of course, this is not suitable for the Satriani, as might expect.
I am not using the intermediate position 2 mics, I find too vague, "fouillie".

OVERALL OPINION

In my legs for a little over a year, the balance sheet I am using almost more than her and have relegated my old Les Paul on his stand ... It is so easy to play and sound hair cell I need.

Its main drawback: I feel that the settings tend to move. I returned to the store a few weeks after purchasing it bordered on a rope. After adjustment there appeared, but I have the impression that the fault reappears just a year later. That fact may be part of the running, I remake set in a few months. Despite this, I would buy for his eyes closed and his ease of enjoyable game.

Ibanez AF125
Made in China: bah yeah there's China and China. It is true that there are sacred crusts from Asia on guitar but now it is the second Chinese Ibanez that I bought and told me with a good quality control, the Chinese are capable of making SUBLIME scratch for a price below the other. Gibson USA and saw some coming out of the workshop with defects shameful finish (yes, when you're paying € 2,000 a scraper account aesthetics), I would say that the Yanks have interest to recover because the competition is there . I'm not saying that all Ibanez are good attention they make cardboard from scratch again. Just do not prejudge and try one model to another in the same price range, you can find gems like scabs!
21 or 22 frets I do not know of any way can not go too saw the jig 3/4 guitar https://static.audiofanzine.com/images/audiofanzine/interface/smileys/icon_smile.gif
2 doubles
2 vols. 2 tone
I finish natuelle with the binding timber and the whole shebang.

UTILIZATION

Well the first thing to be said is the aesthetics: THIS GUITAR IS SUBLIME and you can not help but look at it and touch it https://static.audiofanzine.com/images/audiofanzine/interface/smileys/icon_smile.gif
The handle is VERY fun to play!
The varnish makes the feel of the scratch addictive https://static.audiofanzine.com/images/audiofanzine/interface/smileys/icon_smile.gif suddenly it gives motivation to play and that's good!
Shape, but I love this question of taste, in any case the general ergonomics is good.
Access to acute: it is not his forte but this category scratch it seems to go together with the form 3/4.
For jazz, the sound is there no effort! At the time (I do not know if this is still the case today), Super 58 microphones were mounted on a lot of models signing Ibanez Jazz (Scofield, Benson ...) so surprising there.
Here I must say that the bridge pickup is pretty useless: P
The bonus: the bridge pickup gives a very good sound easily "classic rock" (not so amazing that it makes for connoisseurs https://static.audiofanzine.com/images/audiofanzine/interface/smileys/icon_smile.gif
(But hey, why you have to push a little and feedback due to the body quickly becomes a problem, except in the recording.)

SOUNDS

Extra neck pickup for jazz.
Bridge pickup offers opportunities to classic rock but limited use because of feedback (this is a 3/4 after all!)

OVERALL OPINION

6 years easy I do not know when I bought the first import in France there were only a few models to test the market, it was not even the Ibanez catalog. She re-emerged a few years later in another color.
At the time I was playing jazz every day so I tried a lot of guitars: I had gone to buy a Joe Pass Signature (Emperor II it seems to me) but then for almost the same price I came on this guitar, even sound quality, much nicer finish, beauty, touch and addictive without the "signature" that I found personally pompous.
Quality / price ratio: the best I've seen in this range. When you pay the price on an Ibanez value for money and is guaranteed to last as the guitar.
I remake that choice without hesitation for jazz.
To date, unfortunately I do not play jazz for 3 or 4 years (it does not pay enough loool) so I use less and despite that I can not bring myself to sell it, it is to say!

notkerlebegue's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Ibanez AF125
- Made in China
- 22 frets mediums, two Super 58 Custom pickups
- For each microphone, CONTL volume and tone. Slecteur microphones 3 positions
- VT04 Custom Tailpiece Tailpiece
- Bridge ART-1 bridge
- The handle: Neck type 5pc Artcore Maple / Bubinga set-in neck
- Body: Quilted Maple top body / back / sides
- Dimensions of handle
Scale 628mm/24.75 "
Nut width of 43mm head
Width of 58.5mm dernire fret
THE FIRST 20 mm thick
26.5mm thick the 12th
Radius 305mmR

The quality of finish is exceptional. The electronic is noisier than my Fender Stratocaster. There is probably some amliorations bring electronics.

UTILIZATION

- Before buying the Ibanez, I thought acqurir a Gibson ES-175. By shopping, I tried a dozen guitars luthier $ 10 000 at the show the guitar to Montreal. APRS jou have the guitar luthier expensive, I ressay the Gibson ES-175. Although the sound is authentic Gisbson seeks its comfort, its lack of finish and price lev must normment. In terms of comfort and quality of finish, the AF125 is closer to the guitar luthiers as the ES-175! The handle is a comfort to Ingal. You can play for hours without tiring.
- Access in acute is not bad for an archtop
- The guitar is a bit heavy, but its weight is equilibrated: is not forced to keep up. DIMENSIONS are the good and comfort of the handle is Ingal.

SOUNDS

- The sound is quite traditional. Many MID. I play in an Amp Jazzkat and neck with the microphone and the lighter tone, I get sound RECALLING that of Charlie Christian. By lowering the tone a bit, I easily his trs prs that of Pat Metheny. I do not use the microwave bridge, I n'apprcie not its sound. For cons, the two pickups together give me a trs equilibrated for his support Bossa. With the pick, the attacks are easily dtach. Basically, the sound is excellent for jazz, but does not offer much versatility.

OVERALL OPINION

- I have the guitar for a year.
- The comfort and finish are the two greatest qualities. The sound is INTERESTED, but does not offer versatility. strength to play, I like less acute when one is "slamming". May be I should take down a bit ... Although several micro apprcient Super 57 (with Pat Metheny), I find them too noisy (I'm picky, I know).
- The quality-price ratio is excellent. It is for this reason that I bought. For $ 1 000, tui and taxes included, it was well built with a guitar sound trsdcent. For this quality worth paying more. Then we spend the Eastman ($ 2,500) on guitars and violin making.

UTILIZATION

Very nice finish at the violin, apart from the persistent smell of varnish on the instrument and the Pouche.

Mine was a problem of flatness of the frets. I worked a lot on setting the neck and bridge, but we need filing, work that I let a competent luthier.

You must climb ropes to pull a good guitar sounds, such as Thomastik Infield 012 (Benson plays with 013)

So, the mechanics do not agree, he will bet on a game or Gotoh Kluson.
The mechanical Sperzel have diameters that do not permit the installation of pulling the strings.
I prefer the easel to get a jazz sound.

SOUNDS

No problem to have a style or Jordan Benson, I play on a Mark VI.

OVERALL OPINION

I've had two years.
Very good value for money but we have to control the instrument before buying.
