Re: SERIE ARTCORE BLUESY , AK84 acoustic anyone ?
The Artcores are sensational value for money, but very inconsistent - I have played and set up plenty of them at our local Ibanez dealer, and you can have two identical models next to each other - one will feel like a $3000 Gibson, the other will be untuneable - so the trick, I believe, is to play the actual guitar you want to buy - don't go to an internet store. The frets are usually passable, but improveable, the pickups are useable, but immediately removing the stock pickups from your Artcore and throwing them off the end of the nearest pier as hard as you can, and quickly dropping in a pair of PAF style pickups will improve the guitar immensely!
