Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (8 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Ibanez Artcore AS53"
Sound: For $300.00.....you can't beat it, period. It sounds good played through my small amp but really shines when hooked up to the board at church. Ease of Use: Very impressed with its playability. I own an acoustic/electric and this instrument is easier to play in terms of neck thickness and minimum input pressure on the strings. Quality: Seems to be made well. Value: Value is tremendous. I don't think you could find a better deal. Manufacturer Support: N/A The Wow Factor: When people see and hear this guitar for the first time they are very impressed with its appearance and sound. Overall: This guitar brings big time sound quality to the working man. I needed a quality instrument and the AS53 has delivered. You don't have to spend 1,2, or even 3,000.00 to get superior sound. I did ALOT of research and read many reviews before deciding to purchase this instrument. I want to thank all those musicians that took the time to write a review because I am very, very pleased with my purchase. ZZounds was wonderful. Transaction was silky smooth and product arrived as promised in excellent condition.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "A lot of guitar for the money!"
Overall: I am blown away at the sound for such a little price. I am a big fan of Ibanez guitars and also play an Ibanez Talamax acoustic electric, which I absolutely love. I own many other guitars including an Ovation and Takamine acoustic electric. I prefer the Ibanez guitars over both the Ovation and Takamine. I love the Ibanez pickups and the ease in playability. You cannot go wrong for the price.
Style of Music: I love rock and roll and country.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
