  • NGD: '79 Ibanez Artist 2622

    New vintage guitar day, and my hunt for an old Ibanez Artist is finally over!
    Pictures first!



    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!

    Happy NGD.


    What do all the switches and knobs do?

    I used to be "with it", then they changed what "it" was.
    Now, what I'm with isn't "it", and what's "it" seems weird and scary to me.

      one volume knob
      one switch to turn on active circuit, which is a three-band eq (the three black knobs) and a boost (the other knob)

        My friend has a 2622 of that vintage that's a great guitar.  Congratulations and HNGD!

        I myself own an AR300 - it came with aftermarket bridge and tailpiece but it's a terrific guitar:

          Nice! I have a big soft spot for ibby's from that era.   I have a reissue ar250.   Great guitar but not quite the quality of the vintage ones.   Good find.
