I believe these ate the artist series. How are they? Do they have a les paul sound? How are the non EMG pickups?

Thanks

Yeah they are the ART series. I do not really like them, and the stock Ibanez passives are not very good. But if yo are intrerested go try a few out, they might be up your alley

I hope to tomorrow. None of the stores here stock them, and I would have to order one in special. I'm in Toronto tomorrow near a music store that has a huge selection.

What didn't you like about them?

they only have one left handed on that series but i really liked how it felt the pick ups leave a lot to be desired though

i prefer them to epiphone or gibson les pauls to be honest but i havemt played a LP that i really liked ...i dunno i like the artist

i've got an ibanez rx 40 cheap guitar and i enjoy the stock ibanez pickups. i play live with it sometimes straight through the amp, well all the time when i'm playin clean and i love them

ALL cheap Ibanez pickups are poor quality. The guitars themselves, imo, are great. Not really a Les Paul though - if that's what you're going for, go for the real thing.
I've only played two ART models, one with passive and an older one with Ibanez's stock actives. If you find one with actives, I firmly believe that Ibanez's active pickups are better than their passive ones. Even their passive models I found sounded far better than any RG of the same price range.
I also found them very comfortable to play, but that's for you to decide.
