Artcore Vintage Basses
More than ever, bassists craving instruments that bear a bit of wear-and-tear are now being forced to spend more than ever for their dream bass. Even relic'd new instruments are commanding outrageous sums, making them equally unattainable. In answer to this demand, Ibanez offers its affordable Artcore Vintage Bass series. The Artcore Vintage "aging" process applies to hardware and other appointments, as well as the body, giving each bass a convincingly real, worn appearance. These basses are still Artcore to the heart... expressive, well-built and dependable.
