What's special about this product?
Features: What it does for you:
Quilted maple top, back and sides Bright and smooth tone with plenty of depth
Custom 58 pickups Ripping vintage tone
Art1 bridge Resonant tone and exceptional intonation
Bound rosewood fretboard Warm rosewood tone; beautiful binding
Ibanez's AM93 Artcore semi-hollowbody electric guitar comes with a fashionably sleek outer shell and a warm and inviting inner sound. This axe's slightly smaller AM body is comprised of a quilted maple top, back, and sides, and harnesses the alluring and well-defined tones of two Custom '58 humbuckers. The set-in neck on this baby is made of a three-piece mahogany/maple combination and topped with a comfortable bound rosewood fingerboard with 22 medium frets. The Ibanez AM93's gold tuners and gold ART-1 bridge look flashy and provide secure intonation and lasting sustain to your playing. This semi-hollow body guitar is a beauty to hold, play, look at, and listen to -- a striking partner for any guitarist.

Powerful Pair of Custom '58 Humbucking Pickups

Your pair of Custom '58 humbuckers really capture the warm color and full-bodied tone of the AM93 Artcore. This dynamic duo projects an array of sounds from warm jazzy mids and lows to a fat and present distortion that's great running through tube amps. Early semi-hollow body axes would often project an uninvited low-end hum, but these babies buck any hum with assurance and conviction. All tone, no nonsense -- that's what the AM93 Artcore delivers with every strum.

Jazzy Three-Piece Maple/Mahogany Neck

The neck on your AM93 Artcore is comprised of mahogany and maple in a three-piece build for a beautiful transfer of sound. This appendage feels just as wonderful as it sounds with its smoothly bound rosewood fretboard of 22 medium frets. Your notes will hold in an enduring and mesmerizing sustain as you hesitate between passing tones and colorfully arpeggiated runs.

Comfortable Maple AM Double Cutaway Body

Maple wood gives this semi-hollow axe a pleasant bright sound that cuts through without any overbearing temperament. This baby's smaller size makes it a comfortable fit against your body, and its cool-looking double cutaway shape allows your fingers easier access to those higher frets. A stylish cut, colorful tones, and a comfortable feel are what this semi-hollow body guitar is all about.

Sleek and Secure Gold Hardware

Topping off this axe's attractive shape and warm sound is its glistening gold hardware. The Ibanez AM93 Artcore's gold tuners add a charismatic shine that's pleasing to the eyes, and its gold ART1 bridge holds your notes in lasting sustain and continual intonation. With great looks and wonderful tones, this guitar will add a lot to your game.

Product Description

Don't be fooled by its smaller size -- the Ibanez AM93 model 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. With semi-hollow, flat-top bodies, and even chicken head knobs, the AMF models have the quintessential 60s look and feel. Ibanez designed the AMF with the aim of bringing the traditional tone and look of hollow body guitars into more modern musical realms.

The full tone, strong sustain, lightweight body, and feedback resistance of a semi-acoustic in an original Ibanez compact design.

Features:

- Double cutaway offers effortless upper fret access
- Artcore Mahogany/Maple Set-in Neck
- Medium frets
- ART-1 Bridge
- Maple top/back/sides
- Custom 58 Bridge and Neck Pickups
Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (7 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "The Ibanez AM93AYS Semi-Hollowbody is Off-the-Hook Amazing"
Sound: The sound of this guitar is great, thanks to the Custom 58 Ibanez pickups, the semi-hollow body, and excellent neck and fretwork. I use it mostly for blues, and it gets that great, full 335 sound in a smaller body size. Feature: The construction, fit, and setup of my guitar are perfect. The top and back have a burl-flame pattern that is off the hook. This guitar is as beautiful as it is well-built. There's nothing on this guitar that requires upgrading. Ease of Use: It's a two-humbucker guitar with a basic Gibson wiring pattern (two volume, two tone). You use it just like any other semi-hollow with a similar setup. But the guitar is so well made, the sounds that come out of it are fantastic. The neck is not too fat, not too slim. The fretwork is great. The only adjustment I made out of the box was to lower the action a bit by lowering the bridge. I didn't have to intonate the guitar or mess with the truss rod. Quality: I made this number lower not because my particular guitar is low quality (it is a 10 in my opinion) but I know other people who have ordered the same model and their flame patterns have been less spectacular than mine, and one had frets with sharp ends. I think Ibanez could benefit from a bit better quality control. I have read reviews from other buyers, though, who have gotten guitars just as good as mine. Value: I've shown this guitar to friends at the local blues jams, after they've heard me play it and heard how great it sounds, then I tell them I paid $550 for it and their jaws drop to the floor. Similar "American brand" guitars with the same body size sell for $3,000 and don't look as nice and can't possibly play or sound better. Manufacturer Support: I haven't had a support issue yet, but Ibanez in known for pretty good customer service. The Wow Factor: Like I said, mine is off-the-hook beautiful and a joy to play. I haven't brought another one of my guitars to the jams since I bought this one (and I have a lot of great guitars). Overall: This is now my #1 player guitar. I don't ever expect to sell it.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Wow, what an eye opener and a sweet sound to boot"
Overall: I just bought a new red Ibanez AM93 and what a beautiful semi hollow body guitar to look at. Very attractive quilted top, sides and body with full binding all the way around to cap things off. It set up easy with low action and fast fingering which is my cup of tea. The pickups read S 58 on the metal cover of the pickups and they give off a sweet mellow Gretsch-ish tone which sold me instantly on this gem. It's frets and finish are perfect and flawless, really a well done guitar despite being made in China. They sure made a beauty here. Could not be happier ! Thanks Ibanez !! Glenn
Style of Music: Play good old country, rock-a-billy and rock-n-roll. No distortion just sweet music.
