    Product Description

    The Ibanez AR520HFM-VLS is a classy and compact semi-hollow body instrument that will captivate guitarists with its warm, airy tone and luxurious playability. With an incredible feature-set comprising Ibanez's Super 58 pickups, a rigid 3-piece Maple neck and a high-quality Gibraltar bridge — the Ibanez AR520HFM-VLS is an inspiring and reliable electric guitar with plenty of tonal versatility.

    Semi-Hollow Construction

    While Ibanez may be most renowned for its metal-orientated guitars, the AR520HFM-VLS is a truly traditional affair. Boasting a semi-hollow construction, this design harks back to vintage instruments from the '50s and '60s; promising a broad sound with plenty of acoustic-like resonance.

    The AR520HFM-VLS's reduced body size will appeal to contemporary players looking for more modern and practical proportions though, with its gorgeously-symmetrical shape adding to its all-around charm.

    Maple & Okoume Tonewoods

    The Ibanez AR520HFM-VLS's body is crafted from a combination of Flamed Maple, Okoume and Maple; used to form the top, back and sides respectively. While the beautiful Flamed Maple top sonically enriches your picking response with bundles of bright attack, the Okoume back adds sonic depth rich in sustain. Maple has also been used to construct the neck, of which is made up of three layered sections to add strength — guaranteeing sublime tuning stability.

    Proprietary Super 58 Pickups

    Ibanez's AR520HFM-VLS comes equipped with a pair of medium-output Super 58 humbuckers — pickups that really lend themselves well to jazz, blues and even rock. Featuring Alnico magnets, the Super 58s have a pure and clear quality with a rounded tone that's perfect for warm extended chords, fingerpicked melodies or singing solos.
