For a decade now, Ibanez has energized hollow-body guitar fans with a wide range of designs?from rockin? hybrids to straight-up jazz-boxes. With the introduction of its Expressionist line, Ibanez has begun yet another chapter in the story of its acclaimed Artcore series. ? Built with tone woods selected for their beauty as well as their musicality, the Expressionist models are perfect for a wide range of styles, from jazz and blues to rock and folk. ? The AM93ME features a Macassar Ebony top, back and sides, clean, handsome white binding on the body, headstock and fingerboard and expertly crafted set-in neck construction to ensure maximum resonance. The rich Ebony fingerboard, with contrasting white block inlays, sits on a set-in neck that has proven its reliability on thousands of Ibanez hollow and semi-hollow bodies throughout the years. ? Jazz fans will recognize the original Ibanez Super 58 pickups?the pickup that George Benson, Pat Metheny and John Scofield prefer for their own Signature models. Super 58 pickups, known for their warm, balanced articulation and excellent response, are equally effective in a variety of genres.
