The Ibanez AG85 succeeds in delivering authentic jazzbox tone and response at a low cost of entry. The fully hollow lindenwood (basswood) body is light and resonant in the hands, creating, together with the Gibraltar Performer bridge and VT06 "trapeze" tailpiece, a balanced foundation for the Johnny Smith- and Seth Lover-inspired Magic Touch-Mini floating humbuckers to work their mojo. The body joins a 3-piece set-in neck of nyatoh and maple by way of a sculpted Venetian cutaway that's perfect for grabbing high octaves up the neck. The AG85's glassy ebony fingerboard plays great and arrives dressed to the nines in black binding and Ibanez's Acrylic Block inlays. Gold hardware and a satin poly finish add an upscale touch to this great-performing hollowbody.
