Urban Koala's review - Ibanez AF85

I believe this guitar was made in Korea or China, finally, there will.
22 frets, easel "floating" like most half-boxes, the maple neck it seems to me, with a rosewood of thumb button is very nice.
The pickups are signed Ibanez, it is not of very high quality, but overall it sounds great. There are two humbuckers, 1 run, an easel, classical and what effective.
Settings could not be more conventional: 2 volumes, two tones, a selector.

UTILIZATION

The handle is very nice, good ergonomics, although access to acute extreme is not easier (well, at the same time, achieve the latest cases is not the most important on a jazz guitar) Ergonomics are good, this guitar is lightweight and comfortable, although I never played standing.
I did not either try to play with doing my yoga, but it should be the realm of possibility. Actually, who cares.
The sound is very good, finally, it does exactly what I expected for a guitar of this range prix.A my opinion, we should be able to win as his changing the pickups, but already basic this is pretty good!

SOUNDS

I wanted a good guitar for cheap bosser grids / jazz chorus.
Well, it's successful!
Joe I mostly clean sound with some reverb, especially on the neck pickup, it's really cool, jazzy sound great!
On the bridge pickup, with distortion, the fact that serious too!
I usually plug in my bass amp MicroMark, the sound is really nickel.
I found against by the bridge pickup lacks a bit of potato ...

OVERALL OPINION

It's a little less than a year that I have.
It really is a nice guitar. Many friends, fine guitarists have tried, it all fell in love, even those who have gibson ES I really know anything more than 2000 euros.
She is beautiful, it sounds, and is comfortable.
Only the bridge pickup lacks a bit of potato in my opinion.
The value for money is simply excellent.
With experience, I remake this choice clearly.
