Ibanez AFJ81 reviewed in TopGuitar magazine

TopGuitar is proud to inform, that the April issue of the magazine features a review of the AFJ81 electric hollow body guitar from Ibanez. Below are some excerpts from a review by gear department editor Krzysztof Blas:

“Ibanez AFJ81 is built properly and in a classic way. It’s a typical hollow body that does not differ too much from its competition as far as materials and construction is concerned.”

“Most of all, this model fights the myth that a hollow body guitar must be an expensive one. As we clearly see, for a relatively low price you can get a god looking and well built instrument that has all the necessary characteristics of an electric guitar of this type.”

“In this price range there is no equal and the construction quality makes this model one of the best hollow bodies on the market for guitarists starting their adventure with jazz.”
