Ibanez logo1990 Ibanez AS-200
Influenced and loved by John Scofield
Put up here is the legendary semi hollow of Ibanez Artist series, AS-200. Since its debut in 1980, AS-200 has been John Scofiled's main guitar for 20 years. Sturdy build with the highest standards and the best of materials, coupled with the well balanced high/low tones attracted him so hard that years later Ibanez came up with the advanced version, JSM-100 and JSM-200 based on the same prototype of AS-200 except a Prestige neck, a side output jack and super 58 pickups.

This guitar plays and sounds versatile. Tonality can be played across multiple level by the unique feature of Tri-sound switch (serial / parallel / reverse coil), in combination to the 3 way bridge/neck pickup selector. If you want to play as close as John's sound, you may consider his favorite way of stringing, D'Addario strings custom set: .013, .016, .022, .032, .042, .052.

Serial# H008882 indicates it was manufactured by Terada Gakki(Gakki meaning musical instruments), a Nagoya-based prominent manufacturer with track records of successful business for 100 years.

This guitar stayed in excellent condition, owned and played by one owner for over a quarter century. No dents / dings found, and thin scratches / wear are ignorable as the photos self explain. Original Hardshell case comes along.
