As evidenced by Ibanez's long-standing association with jazz guitar giants such as George Benson, Pat Metheny, and John Scofield, the company has been a constant pioneer in the world of hollow-body guitar building for more than three decades. Part of that esteemed legacy is due to the Artcore collection, which succeeded in smashing all preconceptions as to what a great hollow or semi-hollow-body guitar ought to be. The Artcore formula builds on equal parts luthiery know-how, daring design and a passion for warm, full-bodied tone. The AG75G features a select-grade Linden hollow body, a set-in Nyatoh neck and a Laurel fretboard. These elements contribute to the warm-sounding characteristics of the AG75G. Ibanez designed the Classic Elite pickups to provide a big, full tone and well-balanced output. Sure Grip III knobs enable non-slip functionality and an ART-1 bridge provides improved sustain and tuning stability.
