  • 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?

    <div class="signaturecontainer">I used to be &quot;with it&quot;, then they changed what &quot;it&quot; was.<br />
    Now, what I'm with isn't &quot;it&quot;, and what's &quot;it&quot; seems weird and scary to me.<br />

      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.
