    I have always liked the Ibanez Artcores as well as some of the other Semi-Hollow basses I've seen -- I think they're very cool. I'm curious however, what style/genre of music are they primarily used in?

    I know you can play whatever bass with whatever music you want but these basses seem a little "off the beaten path."

    Can those who own/like/play them tell more about where you use them?

    i think the artcore is fairly versatile specially since its essentially a solid through neck....very well built ..looks cool and amazing for the money but not that much of a hollowbody sound as such...more of a solid body...reminded me of my stingray a bit in fact!!!
