Ibanez AS73G Artcore Semi-Hollowbody Electric Guitar

Perfect for anything from jazz to rock, the AS73G has tone in its DNA. The linden body adds bite, while the mellow Artcore humbuckers smooth everything out.
What's special about this item?
Feature: What it does:
Ibanez ACH pickups Powerful and articulate tone
Linden top, back and sides Rich, warm, deep-voiced tone
Nyatoh neck Warm tone; similar to mahogany
ART-1 bridge Increased resonance and tone
When Artcore guitars debuted in summer 2002, they turned the music industry upside down. No longer were full and semi-acoustic guitars just big expensive jazz boxes for jazz players. With Artcore guitars you get an amazingly affordable price plus the quality and tone you expect from Ibanez, the guitar company with over 4 decades of experience making full and semi-acoustic guitars.

Features:

- The great complex tones found only in true full-hollow guitars
- Medium output Artcore pickups produce clear tones and work well with effects

Nyatoh Neck Material
Nyatoh provides rich warm lows and sweet sustain

"Exactly What I Expected"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I love hollowbodies, I am not a huge guy (about 180lbs, 5'10") so the shape and style of this 335-like guitar was perfect for me (I dont like the thicker bodies). The tone is superb, the bridge pickup has a lot of bite and the neck pickup can be dialed in for all the genres I play (RnB, Jazz, blues, and gospel). Versatile axe and I couldnt be happier with the purchase. I also bought the Gator Journeyman tweed case and it fits perfectly so I'd recommend that as a hardshell case option too. I opted for the Ivory White version of this guitar and it is very impressive with the gold hardware. Setup and action was very good right out of the box, I only changed the strings to D'addario NYXL 10s. Reliable and fun guitar, industry sound. Exactly what I get everytime I buy an Ibanez.
