Ibanez AS200VSY Semi-hollow & ASF180AV Hollow Hands-on

Some impressions & pics of a pair of fantastic (& underappreciated) Ibanez axes. The ASF I just never got around to publishing & found an AS200 in the meantime Questions, comments, corrections always welcome.

Re: Ibanez AS200VSY Semi-hollow & ASF180AV Hollow Hands-on

This post inspired me to get the AS200 ('95) out of its case and learn the songs I have to learn for this week on it.

God I love this guitar.

Interestingly, mine has the '88 style headstock (per your photo), but it's an F5xxxxx serial.

they play incredibly... magnificent instruments. My only complaint would be they're a little too loud to play late at night when everyone is sleeping or going to sleep

This is researched in the linked hands-on. Castle headstocks used thru 1996.

Well, you'll notice this isn't your linked '96-and-before/JSM castle headstock, but the one associated with the '88 terada made AS200 you've got pictured.

i had difficulty finding good full-shots of the AS models from prior years. Yours is 1995 correct?

Correct.

I can take some shots of it tonight/tomorrow morning if you'd like.
