Would you buy this Ibanez AS73 for $888 (huat ah!) when you can get one brand new for $589? What's that? There's a hard case included for the price, so it would account for a $300 price difference? Hmm...

Ibanez has these to offer for 2016- the Artstar Vintage models.
We know it's nothing fresh in terms of ideas & we note that Ibanez did not offer relic/ vintage selections in its other models. In my opinion- not a good move. The Ibanez brand wasn't one to be known for its relic or road worn feel. Wouldn't be surprised if they are discontinued next year because all this relic business reeks of novelty more than value-for-money. What fans want from Ibanez in the mean time is the re-issue of those glorious '80s models. Bringing back the Talman- now, that's a good move.

This is Chris Broderick's 'new' Jackson for 2016- the Soloist HT6 (7-string version available). You guessed it, a non-whammy version of his signature guitar. The hard tail here is a little unique because it's a top load model meaning, no string goes through the body. At this age, I appreciate non-whammy guitars more due to its hassle free nature when it comes to re-string & tuning.
