Re: New Chinese made Ibanez Artstar AS or used Korean made Artstar AS 50/80/100?
I forgot to mention since the release of the budget friendly, or semi-budget friendly George Benson LGB30, it makes going over a thousand dollar budget attractive. It's pretty much $1,100 dollars street and for a Benson that's an amazing deal.
I would think that by now, and with Ibanez Hoshino input, the Chinese made signature guitar like the 2013 Benson should almost be as good as the Korean made Benson of a few years ago. A Korean Benson today would probably cost about two thousand dollars street, and be worth every penny, but it's beyond my budget.
