    This came up locally so I thought I'd have a look.
    I've not got on with these in the past. I felt them to be a bit flat but this one has a strong balanced tone and is louder acoustically than I thought it would be.
    It's X braced, as best I could make out. (Edit: It's parallel)
    Beautiful woods and paint job. Neck is sublime.

    I will make a custom 5 ply black pick guard for it and put some Sure Grip II knobs on.
    It's basically the same shape and body as the AF2000/200 but with a solid spruce top, a slightly deeper body and different appointments.

    Just going over which Ibanez archtops I've had or have. There are models in between but I think I've hit all the major milestones or there about.

    2355
    Fa-100
    FA-800 (2471 equivalent)
    JP20
    Af120
    Af200
    GB15
    GB-20
    Gb-100
    GB-200

    A 2460, 2740 and an FA-700 would be nice. They're the last ones on my list.

    GB200's are great archtops in my view. That's a beauty!

    Congratulations.

    I'm sorry, but you must add the AF2000 to your lust! Sorry, list!

    Congratulations.
    I'll get some fresh half rounds on her and give her a clean up. Hard to bond with a guitar when it's got someone else's sweat and strains on.
    Its a LOT of guitar for the money.

    The mahogany sides and back is interesting for sure.
