tomusic's review - Ibanez AF85

This guitar is made in China, it has 22 frets (good availability until the 16 th)
Regarding micro settings: buttons are 4 1 volume and 1 tone and also a micro switch that allows settings manche-manche/chevalet-chevalet

The positions of the microphones can be changed (height of the pads and microphone). Be careful as all the guitars with a floating bridge not to move it when changing the strings and then to change these strings by strings.

UTILIZATION

It's an interesting guitar, climbing rope nets dishes Addario 13-52 gives a more jazzy sound that interested me in.
Those obtained with the strings sound very sweet. Unfortunately, the projection is incomparable with the Artcore with a micro float.

Finally the guitar is very fun to play, quite usable in concert and not tiring to wear.

SOUNDS

Acoustic guitar is very nice and sweet the sound (when playing above the neck pickup) is preserved when you plug the guitar and we played with the neck pickup.

The bridge pickup alone as a large part of jazz guitar is unusable. I play only with clean sounds to which I added a slight reverb times by adding a chorus if the music is right. The guitar may be a little too dark, it is necessary to equalize its output amplifier of the guitar if you want to play a rhythm if the sound seems a bit messy (lots of harmonics), this problem n ' not appear when you play a note for note.

OVERALL OPINION

I am very happy after a year and a half, that kind of 3 / 4 body are very interesting to play. Also the guitar is beautiful. To think you're going to try it;)

If I have to change it will be to spend on a guitar much better. Although the Epiphone Emperor or may be a little better. The difference is not justified. So much better to see must be sought in the Archtop luthier, in Gretsh, Gibson ES guitars and other crazy price.
