1998 First year of production ….Ibanez artist prestige…AR 2000… This was the top of the line AR model for Ibanez. It’s all original and the neck is straight and features a volute for added strength and stability. The truss rod is fully functional with room on the rod in both directions. The medium jumbo frets have plenty of life left in them. This guitar seems as it was barely played and spent most of its life in its case. The original rosewood pickup rings are a nice added touch. It plays and sounds amazing. The super 58’s are chimey and clear. The guitar is in excellent condition with a few minor dings on the back and one small indentation on the top. Still has the plastic on the back plates! Check the pics for details. Ships in the original hardshell case!
