  • NGD: '79 Ibanez Artist 2622

    new vintage guitar day, and my hunt for an old Ibanez Artist is finally over!
    pictures!

    She sounds awesome, with those ceramic Super 80 pickups. A rather agressive sound, but very nicely balanced and defined.
    The only thing I don't really like is that she's neck-heavy, so I'll have to get used to that. And the pickups could use wax potting.
    But what a guitar! Sustain!

    Awesome guitars. I used to have a lower end artist and it was extremely neck heavy. There's definitely a learning curve to playing with a neck diver.

      Using a suede backed strap instead of a nylon one really helps. It tends to keep the strap in place a lot better, increases the friction between the strap and your shirt, and reduces the amount of neck dive.


       


      Still, those guitars, as cool as they are, do have a tendency to neck-dive. Most of them are pretty darned heavy too...


       


      That one in the OP looks really nice - HNVGD!

        I was planning on selling it after I found an Artist, but I'm really not sure if I should I'm gonna think about this a bit longer so I don't regret it

          I used to have a light maple finish Ibanez Artist like that first one! I so regret selling it. I removed that little triangular metal thing behind the string stop, to show more wood - it doesn't actually do anything, though I guess it helps the balance slightly...
