||1983 Ibanez AR-300|
Stunning beauty with multi controls
Check out this sweet 1983 Ibanez Artist AR300 in antique violin color. The first thing you notice looking at this guitar is the intense figure of the flamed maple top and great binding work everywhere. The fretboard inlays are mother of pearl with Abalone inserts starting on the first fret. The sculpted top, double cutaways and perfect heel make upper fret access effortless.
This model has the Tri-Sound pickup switches per pickup, which allow for full humbucking, coil splitting or parallel phase configurations. These Super 58 pickups are amazing and the definition of the sound they produce will blow out a Gibson.
She's been well played but treated like a queen. Binding cracks on the left top cutaway and around the body bottom are acceptable considering over 30 years’ excellent maintenance. Please note the strap pin was moved from the rear body to the left cutaway top to balance off the weight of the guitar. A gig bag comes along with this stunning beauty.
