Ibanez is taking their Artcore full and semi-acoustic guitars into a new arena. "The new Ibanez Artcore United models 'unite' our resonant Artcore bodies with impeccable Japanese craftsmanship and finishing and the famous playability of Japanese Ibanez necks," said Paul Specht of Ibanez Communications. "The guitars begin as Artcore flamed maple bodies in China and then travel to Japan for fitting with 3pc maple/mahogany Ibanez necks and Super 58 humbuckers and then finished. Then they're shipped to the states where they're inspected and set-up by Ibanez USA quality control in Bensalem, Pennsylvania and Idaho Falls, Idaho. The result is pro playability and tone in the $1300 range, which in full and semi-acoustics is an achievement we are very proud of."

Three different Artcore United models will be offered. The traditional-sized AF195 and the slightly smaller AG195 are true full-hollow bodies, which list for $1329.00. The AS193 semi-acoustic lists for $1229.
