Ibanez AFS75T
The Ibanez AFS Series AFS75T is a hollow body electric guitar that is both built well and quite affordable. I'm not sure where the guitar is being made, but it's not the United States. It's got two ACH humbucker pick ups and vibrato whammy bar. The neck is made from mahogany and has 'artcore' neck set-in and goes by the name Artcore as well.

UTILIZATION

The action on the Ibanez AFS Series AFS75T is quite good. It's easy to play up and down the neck, and although I've only played the guitar a few times, it felt good to play right from the start. The vibrato bar is awesome and easy to manipulate and won't bend the guitar out of tune. It should be easy to get a good sound from the guitar if you know how to play well, as the two pick ups should be more than enough to work with. Each pick up has it's own volume and tone knob and there's a three way pick up selector, with the third option being a combination of both pick ups.

SOUNDS

I really like the overall sound of a Ibanez AFS Series AFS75T. While it's not going to match something like a Gibson ES335, it's in the same vein and meant to be that kind of style. Maybe I'm just a sucker for hollow body guitars, but it's really nice and open sounding while still having a nice amount of woody density. You can get a nice array of different sounds between the two pick ups, which should be more than enough for players to work with. It's also kind of loud when not plugged in, making it easy to noodle around with when you don't have an amp handy or just want to play it unplugged.

OVERALL OPINION

The Ibanez AFS Series AFS75T is a must see for anyone looking for a nice hollow body guitar at an even nicer price. I like this guitar more than Epiphone's version of the 335, but of course it doesn't match the classic Gibson version. Still, it's a nice substitute if you can't afford a bona fide 335 or other top end hollow body guitar. At less than $500 US dollars, the Ibanez AFS Series AFS75T is a great deal in the world of hollow body guitars!

MGR/Anonymous's review"Ibanez AFS75TTBL"

Ibanez AFS75T
I always wanted an electric guitar, so I ask
my parents if they could get me an inexpensive one's. They told me that I can't
get it till my birthday, so I waited for several months to finally get it. We went to
Victor's music shop looked around for quiet
a while, then, my eyes got caught with this
blue beautiful color and the body shape I've been looking for for just the price we can afford. We paid $330 for a beautiful piece of equipment.

Well, the Ibanez AFS75TTBL is such a blessing for me cause since I got it, I have
never played like this before. It's beautiful body structure, it's lightweight that's just perfect, and the sound of its wonderful pick-ups, makes me go crazy when I
playe it.

So far, I like everything that it possess,
and I would like to learn more about it.


The construction is superb. I have had this
guitar for about a year now and I'm still totally in to it. It's totally amazing how Ibanez come up with this product.

Well, the bottom line is if you don't have this guitar, or you are planning to get one
this is the right one for you. You can never go wrong. This holiday season this the right gift for your love one's. Happy Holidays!

Plexus02's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" A guitar like that!"

Ibanez AFS75T
Taken on a site selling instruments:

hollow body electric guitar.
model: cutaway
Body: Maple
color: red transparent
round mahogany (Artcore), glue (set-in)
Frets: 22 medium
pitch: 628 mm (24.75 ")
key radius: 305 mm (12 ")
bridge: ART-2 Roller Bridge
Tremolo: Vintage Vibrato VBF70, licensed by Fred W. Gretsch Enterprises, Ltd. US
hardware: chrome
Neck Pickup: ACH1 humbucker (dual-coil)
pickup: ACH2 humbucker (dual-coil)
settings: 2x volume, 2x tone, micro switch 3 positions
volume and tone knobs with non-slip finish

UTILIZATION

This guitar is a comfortable, well balanced, with a nice play to run. Obviously, this is a quarter of cash, access to acute is therefore more difficult than on a Stratocaster or a Telecaster for example.

For me it is a guitar that I love playing.
That said, it can go awry pretty quickly if we are not careful (floating bridge), so it requires regular adjustments, but it is the case for all guitars of this type if you want to optimize the maximum.

Also, mechanical deserve to be better (they are mechanical standards for this price range, they do not move too much, but when you are used to having very good mechanical that do not move, it lacks).

on the other hand, positive for the Bigsby copy that does not move too much agreement.

SOUNDS

This is a versatile guitar with two humbuckers.
It may as well get a clicking sound that's very round. The pickups may be lacking a little fishing time compared to higher-end guitars, but there are nevertheless a great job.

Also, it is better to play the guitar on a tube amp. The sound that is enhanced.
It also responds well to different pedals when coupled with a good amp.

"Negative" point with a fuzz or distortion, it can easily take feedback because unlike quarter of the most famous cases in Epiphone, it has no central beam, so it acts as a semi-hollow and is very sensitive to these larsens (but this can cause effects if you know the game master).

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 4 years now ... and this is a satisfactory guitar in its price range (it has also appreciated in value between the time I bought it and today).

It is can not be upscale, not the best sound that exists (€ 200 more expensive guitars will no doubt better), but this is the kind of guitar you love with some flaws, but especially for its quality, the sound, the look, the comfort of playing ...

For my part I had used, and now I can not sell it, it will follow me to the end!

Backtotheglory's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" A beautiful versatile guitar!"

Ibanez AFS75T
I have to share a line fault (recurring?) On this guitar: the jack is bad, or at least poorly thought out. Indeed, only attached to the body of the guitar with a single screw on the outside, how many times has it happened to me that the screw is unscrewed and end up with the socket inside the body and move several minutes to flog to get her out! I solve the problem by changing input jack. But as I said, maybe this is just a fault on my guitar. Otherwise, most of the configuration on this guitar, such as volume settings / microphones are intuitive and simple. No complaints about the finish at this level.

UTILIZATION

What surprised me with this guitar is the quality of the handle: it glides above, with access to the most well thought cargo. The game above is really nice: the place is easily crossed, the solos are precise, no "frieze" due to the possibility of adjusting the bridge / the string height.

SOUNDS

I put to good not to perfect. This is a guitar, it is true, probably tour for Jazz type music. However, I find it very versatile, with a sound that can be both soft and round, acute or very serious, but also very "fat" / "trash" with a distortion 'well balanced. I mainly play on the Blues or music 60's-70's and it suits me perfectly!

OVERALL OPINION

It must be seven or eight years now that I use, and I must confess that level quality / price ratio, I have not found anything better since (except perhaps some Epiphone). It is true that this is not a Gretsch or a nice Gibson, but for someone who plays alone or composed, this instrument will suit perfectly. I would say that this is a guitar that would be in the upper mid-range, with its flaws and advantages, but for a beginner player in launching the electric (my first guitar) already opens many perspectives and game variants If you find a store: do not hesitate, buy it!

Ibanez AFS75T
I do not know where it is made (?)
Floating bridge, 22 frets, etc. ..

UTILIZATION

good neck and weight, good balance 
access to high frets ..  is hard for a  jazzbox

SOUNDS

On an amp with lamp sounds very warm (tone) and as it should ..
The pickups are "neutral" that is why I installed a 7 / 10

OVERALL OPINION

I tried a lot of models before it .. Ibanez is exellent!

jimi aymerix's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" very good guitar"

Ibanez AFS75T
I traded an Ibanez rg cons limited edition of 2007, I really am a good deal.

Good ibanez Asian manufacturing that's clean and clear previs but hey ....

I have a bigsby above the mechanical problem does not follow and therefore very desacordage faciile ...

after the rest will see the other post =)

UTILIZATION

the handle is very nice for a half case, I love it!
the finish is just this brilliant, the guitar is wonderful! (The inlay on the fretboard too ...)
access to the acute is difficult, personally I stop at the 18/19 th frets at the same time this is not an object to do solo!

Is a very good sound with this guitar, the microphone have the potatoes in distortion is awesome! the small problem, sustain, and very small ... and I prefer clean my michael kelly than the Ibanez (half a credit union must have Excellent clean but hey what are micro ibanez, they are potato, So we forgive them!)

SOUNDS

the guitar is a monster of versatility, but we rock with blues on jazz! that's not bad!
There are quite gets typed gibson es ... it's beautiful ... more potatoes! (Yes with Ibanez, we love fries ...)
on a tube amp, it's just excelente, I tried it on a blues junior and a blackstar ht 20 just genial =)


OVERALL OPINION

I use it occasionally for 1 year
I had already tested model in Gretch, I had preferred, but I had the opportunity to have a half case against one of my guitar, I have not hesitated considering the quality of the guitar.
Sometimes I think I will change that much electronics and pickups .... by the classic 57 or seymour duncan ... (and put the bigsby mechanics wraps, too)
yes electro replaced because the tone and volume is all or nothing! no shade but hey .... it will be an opportunity to put a split disappointed it could be nice =)

Hmm if I had to go half bought me a guitar case, or I'll go Gretch ... at ibanez! because (normally me who likes not Ibanez) I think the violin case and half of their production are on top!

for re re say, this guitar is a beautiful guitar!

barbacha's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Beautiful Guitar"

Ibanez AFS75T
Pushing traditional concepts a step further, the Ibanez AFS has the same form and full-hollow body of the AF. For added comfort, depth of body is a little thinner. A vibrato is also mounted on the body, eliminating tuning problems of traditional systems.

- ACH2 humbucker (bridge) + ACH1 humbucker (neck)
- Chrome hardware
- Table, maple back and sides
- 43mm thick body
- Artcore mahogany set neck
- Rosewood 22 frets
- ART-2 Roller bridge and vibrato VBF70
- Black plate


UTILIZATION

Channel enjoyable. String action a little high in the factory setting.

SOUNDS

Very good sound for rockabilly + Middle Jazz, country, folk. Guitar very versatile. Its very good not even plugged into amp.

OVERALL OPINION

Beautiful guitar at the finish, varnish, etc.. Its very good to me here changes the Schecter and others typed Ibanez Hard Rock but it was the goal. I especially made for my girlfriend because here is still a little guitar girls with glitter! For my first half till I'm not disappointed.

Ibanez AFS75T
See more advice ...

UTILIZATION

-Handle is bread for a heart bni! happiness once it is set (factory settings are not top)

-Access to acute ... I do not see a tap solo shredder the top but ... or treble it sucks.

-Weight ... how to say ... it is rather the gernre very light (no back pain for)

It sound? You branch, you play, a rock

SOUNDS

Its very very very rock in my JCM900 (with EQ in the effects loop anyway to make adjustments)

the knobs are useless. (The volume is all or nothing. The tone is all or everything. No difference. Failure?)
everything back and that's it.

OVERALL OPINION

For the price I say VAS Y GOSSE

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

Ibanez AFS75T
- In what country does she makes? (United States, Japan, Mexico, France ...)
China
- How many frets, what kind of micro as well as their configuration?
22 frets, 2 doubles, a flight and a tone for each of them, a selector 3 positions
- What type of bridge (Floyd, Wilkinson ...)?
A nice pice foundry whose plan is pumped on a Bigsby
- What are the rglages (Volume, Tone slecteur micro ...)?
see above
- What type of race?
gibson tune, comfortable handle without being too thin.

Note: Unlike other 335 copies and this guitar does not possde central beam, we must see it as a jazz guitar (gibson 175) with a thickness of body 335. The absence of the beam makes it more sensitive to feedback

UTILIZATION

- The handle is it enjoyable?
With my big paws, it Urgal!
- Access in acute (dernires freight) is it easy?
It is possible but is it a guitar to play on the 32nd square?
- Ergonomics is it good (in terms of shape, weight ...)?
good ergonomics and light weight ...
- Gets it easy to sound good? ...
One connects and rings. The mic is hot and serious nickel for jazz, the treble is more nervous.

SOUNDS

- Appropriate are your style of music?
Metallica fan, go your way ... As for fans of Jon Spencer, The White Stripes, and other group of real rock and roll, this guitar is a killer!
- With what (s) amplifier (s) or effect (s) do you play?
Since I have my disto take the dusts, my overdrive (OD a house and a Bellcat) are used daily
- What kind of sound you get and with what rglages ("crystalline", "bold ",....)?
It is bold, warm, husky ... the microphone is a serious DLIC, on the mic acute I find it lacks some niaque of neuroticism. (Should have been able to raprocher more strings but the screws are rglage dj background)
- What are the sounds you prfrez, you dtest?
The pickups are improved, it feels, but for now I'm fully satisfied!

OVERALL OPINION

- How long have you use it?
4 months
- What is the particular feature you like best and least?
the absence of a central beam allows it to ogle the cot of jazz as well as able to scream a little rock-blues although filthy! She has the mouth, it sone plutt well. Unplug it is nickel mini-gig for 4am.
- Have you tried many other models before acqurir?
This is the mouth and price qi DCID me make that choice.
- How do you report qualitprix?
IM-BAT-TABLE
- With the exprience, you do again this choice? ...
Yes !!!!!
But the con with my characters and just personal taste, I do a few of DCID customization: Turn the Bigsby! (I dtest all that resemble or indirectly PRS vibrato) and changing the microphone for the best: the GFS probably

jcf250's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Ibanez AFS75T
Good evening
manufactures (very well produced) in China
22 boxes, but only 15 "normal" use
faux Bigsby effective, and does not dsaccorde
handle very easy

UTILIZATION

I have a AFS75tr 3 years and is a good guitar, from its price. I found it a default, is the lack of sustain. It's too bad, depending on what you want to play, otherwise it's easy to play, it is trs beautiful, but Access in acute is not top.
To play jazz or blues on the cheap is good. It is trslgre (TRS)
I am looking that & nd even sell mine, because I have some in now, and I will pay a Gibson 330 or 335.
Good rflexion

SOUNDS

For jazz or blues, but a little while. (The mtal I do not know, I do not know)

OVERALL OPINION

3 years
lack desustain me ESG
I also have a good squier strato
trs good value qualitprix
TRS is a good choice for a music genre, and for a small price.
The pickups are definitely not what is the best, but they do their job properly, or the price they pay.
