Product Description

The Ibanez AM73B Artcore semi-hollowbody guitar may be a smaller size but it has all the power, presence and features of its larger cousins. It's perfect for smaller players or anyone else who wants the traditional semi-acoustic elements but not the traditional size. Featuring a set mahogany neck for loads of sustain, large frets for easy bending, and humbucking pickups with a tight tone response, the Ibanez AM73B is a fantastic value.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (5 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "You owe it to yourself to check this guitar out!"
Sound: Pickups sound articulate, clear and bright. Different, of course, from alnico magnet pickups. Tone is in the head of the player. I like alnico II magnets, but these pickups sound nice. Ease of Use: The AM 73 came set up well. The only adjustment I made was to straighten the neck slightly to my own specs. Quality: Finish is the Tobaco Flat, which I love! The neck is also a satin finish and easy to move around on. One of the reasons I chose this semi hollow body over the others is it's neck profile. It is what I like. I played Gibsons, Epiphones, Corts and found the Artcore neck to be the most comfortable for me. Value: You cannot beat the value of these Artcore guitars. The economy forced me to sell my guitars to pay bills. When it came time to rebuild, this was my humbucker tone choice. Manufacturer Support: Never needed support from Ibanez. The Wow Factor: Looks sexy to me! Overall: I plan on keeping this guitar and passing it on to my grandaughter when I move on from this life. If I do anything to it, I would change the ceramic pickups to maybe some Gibson classic 57's. I have just ordered a Fender Classic Player 60's Strat from Zzounds in order to satisfy my craving for for both single coil and humbucker tone. Between the two, I have my tone pallette satisfied!
Style of Music: Blues, Classic Rock

This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "Ibanez Artcorte AM73TBR"
Sound: My first electric - a semi-hollowbody - and it does all I ask of it - great range of sounds, from soft and jazzy to punchy and crisp...fingerpicks nicely, too... Feature: My AM73TBR is a sharp-looking guitar, tobacco finish with cream binding - great action, very playable. I especially like its size - smaller than the usual semi-acoustic, and very comfortable to hold. While upgraded pickups are a common modification in the Ibanex Artcores, I find the stock pickups are more than adequate for my purposes. Ease of Use: Highly playable - after decades of beating the sound out of acoustic guitars, the Artcore is a pleasure to play. The strings fret so easily that it has expanded the range of music I can play - and I'm finding that things I work out on on the electric can be transferred back to the acoustics. I'm still exploring all the combinations that are available thru the guitar and amp - it's like having a whole roomful of guitars to play... Quality: So far, it has been perfect - no problems at all, save for a tendency for the input jack to loosen off occasionally. I did have some initial problems in getting it into tune, but lubricating the nut slots with a bit of graphite has resolved that. Value: For sure - the Artcotre series has to be one of the best bang-for-the-buck semi-acoustics out there... Manufacturer Support: I haven't dealt with Ibanez, but their website is a good one - lots of info - and several of their employees are active on websites devoted to their products. The Wow Factor: High appeal - plays nicely, sounds great,looks sharp, all at a reasonable cost. Overall: I can't see me outgrowing the Artcore. I'd replace it with the current model in a heartbeat if necessary.
Style of Music: like all sorts of blends of blues, folk, country, jazz... etc.
