Ibanez Japan Artist AR3MH  Bordeaux Wine & new fitted Hard Case


Japanese Import

What an absolutely beautiful guitar this is. A special reissue from Ibanez Japan called the "Genesis Collection" they were built exclusively for sale in Japan and were made at the famous Fujigen factory in Japan (Yes, they still make guitars there for Ibanez, among other makes)

This guitar was built in 2014 & is in great condition with no fretwear and just the tiniest blemishes on the body. These literally were too small to photograph. The guitar and neck are all solid Mahogany with no weight relief. The pickups are Ibanez "Super 58s" and the hardwear is all Japanese GOTOH. Everything is finished in gold which shows no signs of any tarnishing and the colour is a beautiful "Bordeaux Wine Red"

Hard Case

As said many times, all my guitars come shipped in a new black fitted hard case which is included in the price. I find this is the safest way to avoid damage in transit. Alternatively, if you are collecting the guitar and, like some buyers have cases coming out of their ears, that's no problem, I'll adjust the price (usually around a £30 discount) and I can usually find you an old gigbag to take the guitar away in. The only hard and fast rule I have is that I won't ship a guitar in a gigbag

The AR3MH is an Artist series guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 2014. It is part of the Genesis Collection which was a group of Artist and RG reissues offered exclusively in Japan in 2014.

The AR3MH features a mahogany body and a set-in mahogany neck with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with dot inlays and a bone nut. Components include a Gotoh fixed bridge and tailpiece, Gotoh tuners, Sure Grip III knobs and dual Ibanez humbucking pickups with individual volume and tone controls .
