the artcore offerings are really cool. i wonder if these are replacements for some of the models in the current AS series. i find that the AS200 & the Scofield model still tops in terms of construction. however i do appreciate the current artcore bigger frets.

I dig the double cutaway with the transblue finish. Really sweet!

Not a bad showing for a summer NAMM... The Artcore line looks fantastic for the money. The hollowbody Talman looks really groovy.

But in typical Ibanez style, quite a limited colour palette. Ibanez needs to hire the same colour consultants that the auto industry does, and pick colours that not only suit current trends, but that also suit the design of the instruments.

Polaris: that one looks like the discontinued smaller bodied AM200 (catalogue 2000) sans the pickguard.

DW: second the color scheme proposal

Sweet! I've always wanted a destroyer! I was surprised to see decent inlays, a matching headstock, and neck/body binding on it, although I'm willing to bet it's a bolt-on instead of the original set-neck destroyer! Potential bummer...

Either way, I'll still be half-tempted to get one, slap a couple Super Distortions in it, and go to town! Or maybe route it out for a 3rd humbucker ala Phil Collen just so I can have 3 Super Distortions!!!

Unfortunately, they chose to give the Destroyer the ultimate insult...the BP finish.

The Destroyer is made in Japan (or is it Maiden Japan?). Bolt on, AANJ.

The Artcore stuff is really cool. How often do you see hollowbody guitars in colors other than natural and sunburst? Ibanez offers at least three more colors and it still meets opposition. Keep in mind this is a new line and time will probably tell which direction the colors will take.

Cheers,
Butch

I sure like the looks of the Destroyer, but with a price less than 600 dollars I'm afraid you have to put new hums in right away..
It's really too bad it isn't a hardtail, but it's sure a nice guitar to have
