Does anyone own any of the new Artstars?

With a long record of great Japanese and Korean Artstars, does anybody have a Chinese one and what do you think of them?

Also are there any owners of a Chinese Metheny or Benson?

While I have a regular Chinese Artcore and find it a great value for the money and just an all around great guitar in capable hands for anything, I know Ibanez can make a fully targeted, high end professional hollowbody without having to have the buyer get a MIJ Benson, Metheny, or Scofield.

All this time when most of us could not afford the signature Ibanez boxes, people had the affordable options of truly professional Gretsches, Eastmans, Gibson 335 Studios, and Gibson ES-135/137s for a lot less for quite a few years.
