Ibanez AF155 Artstar Archtop Electric Aged Whiskey Burst, 2013

The Ibanez AF155 Artstar is a great example of the many reasonably priced, good quality jazz guitars Ibanez produces. This specific model was built from 2013 to 2018, and was then replaced by other models, but they all get mentioned discussions of available and affordable, quality guitars in the jazz guitar forums. A bottom line is that if you need a versatile, affordable jazz guitar (and who among us does not?) this Ibanez AF155 is a good bet.
