Hello everybody,

I'm new here, so sorry if I mess anything up. I started playing guitar about 6 months ago on an old acoustic and have decided to go ahead and spring for a new guitar. I enjoy swing revival and jazz, so I'm looking at a Semi Hollowbody electric.

I'm currently debating between the Epiphone P93 and the Ibanez Artcore AFS75T. Does anybody have any recommendations or tips for deciding between these two? I'm open to other suggestions in the same price range.

The aforementioned guitars can be found at these two links respectively:

Thank you!

I'd go with the Ibanez.

Personal preference.

You'll quickly learn that that's all that matters for choice of guitar, try them both, pick your favourite.

I've played the artcore series and found them to be quite low in quality.

I've had an Epiphone DOT Studio and an Epiphone Casino, so I'll testify to the great quality of Epiphone hollowbodies. Great guitars for the price.

I love this post. Finally some reason, and not unexplained opinion.


In this case, I think the Epiphone looks better, but in terms of quality, I'd bet the Ibanez is better.

Go to GC and try them out, or ones as similar to those as you can find. Only you can decided which one is right for you.
