When released in the mid-70s, the Artist was the first original design to prove that Ibanez was a force to be reckoned with. It was embraced by major recording artists and shook up the sleeping “industry giants” who had grown apathetic and inattentive from years of unchallenged dominance in the marketplace.
This Ibanez AR325QADBS features a Dark Brown beautifully curved Quilted Ash symmetrical body for that extra heavy “chunk” and endless sustain you’d expect of a classic 70s Artist.
A comfortable 3-piece Maple “AR” set-in neck incorporates a super-smooth heel for easy access to the highest frets and a smooth bound Jatoba fretboard.
The AR325QA features the ART-1 bridge for flawless intonation, and Super 58 humbuckers for warm, balanced articulation and excellent response.
Furthermore, it has tri-sound switches for each pickup and the parallel & coil-tap wiring configuration provides tonal variety. Non-slip Sure Grip III knobs support accurate volume & tone control.

At PC Sound, we check out our instruments and provide a general setup prior to listing them online to ensure the instrument is in the best possible condition. However, sometimes a minor adjustment may be needed once it arrives to you due to changes in temperature, humidity, shipping, or individual preferences. If temperatures are very cold or hot, please allow your instrument to sit in the box or case for at least 24 hours to allow time for it to acclimate. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us, and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
