Excellent Guitar

16.06.2016
I already owned a Gibson 339 before buying the AM205 and therefore had a good idea of what to expect.
I play jazz mainly at home, often dueting with a friend. My main amp is a Mambo.
The Ibanez came out of the box very well set up and needed very little adjustment. I lowered the action a little and then adjusted the intonation on the three top strings and that was it. The fret job is spot on and this guitar will not need a fret dress, unlike the 339. The playability is thus superb.
Build quality is excellent as you would expect from an Ibanez in this range.
The sound is clear, full and rich. Also, the amount of sustain is just right, allowing you to let notes ring if need be.
I am not sure of the string gauges fitted originally but I have now changed these for a set of Thomastik Jazz Bebop 11s. They suit the instrument perfectly.
In summary: the Ibanez AM205 is an excellent small bodied semi suitable for jazz and blues. I shall be playing mine for many years to come.

Wonderful all-rounder

05.02.2017
You go to the 50 and has been playing for years a thick Archtop. Then come? S to the bandwechsel with new musical accents (soul, funk, a bit of rock) and since the works with the good old no longer so. After a long search and comparison, the AM205-AV addressed me. A present to the 49 he should be. So ordered in time. The delivery was so fast that I had to wait 5 days with the sealed box to my birthday. Packaging exemplary, super protected, since nothing can happen. Tadellose case. Unfortunately, however, no hanger for shoulder straps (ride a bike to the test). The guitar itself beautiful, impeccably processed. The grain of the mahogany rootwood and the handleboard adornments - really an eye-catcher. When I play for the first time, I immediately remember the AS 200, which I had many years ago. Should be also the same neck. A very pleasant feeling. Sound: with a Fender Hot Rod Deluxe together everything can be done from jazzy gentle to funky shrill. The enforcement force I need in the new band is well given. A minimal neck load is only noticeable when sitting while practicing. Do not disturb me any further. All in all: I am very satisfied - a really high-quality processed noble-looking good to play and varied good sounding guitar.
