  • Ibanez Artcore Pickups

    Does anyone have any information on the stock pickups in the Ibanez Artcores? I think they are called the ACH1 and ACH2 but does anyone know anything else? What kind of magnets are they, what kind of tone response do they give, what do they compare to? Anything?

    I wish I could help you. I'm not sure if anyone on the forum even owns an Artcore.....maybe a couple of folks, but I'm not positive.

      they are stock ibanez pups for this line of guitars. they sound ok, but nothing special. throw some seths in an artcore and you will be living large though.

      but play one, maybe your ears will like them more than i do.

        I just got one yesterday. Iím still not sure about the pickups. Sometimes they are ok sometimes the neck seems too thick and sometimes the bridge seems too bright where as other times they seem ok. Well, except a little weak, they are definitely nicer then the pickups that came in my Epi. They will stay until I can make up my mind. I canít decide if I want to go with a 59/JB or A2Pro/CC. I have an Epi Les Paul with the A2Pro/CC combo and I want the Artcore to kind of be in that same ball park as I will be switching between the two as a backup guitar. The verdict is still out as to which one will be my main guitar as well.

          id say go with the same pups, those guitars are quite different so youll get variation but with the same pups you shouldnt have to change the eq when ya switch guitars

            I have an Artcore AFS75T, the thin body with Bigsby style vibrato and the pickups sound almost identical to the ones on my friend's Gibson ES135 with about the same ourput but a tad more low mid-range. Hope this helps.

              That would make them 57ish. After playing them for a while I would agree with that. Now I just need to figure out what I want them to be.

                Jeremy, that makes perfect since to a point. The Artcore sounds thicker so Iím afraid it will be muddier. Also If I want to keep the look up and keep the covered pups they will be even muddier. Donít get me wrong, I donít want it to be too bright either.
