What Ibanez Say:
Introduced by Ibanez in 2002, Artcore has been the hollow-body guitar of choice for musicians for the last 10 years. Artcore's combination of quality workmanship and affordability has created legions of fans from diverse genres, such as blues, country, rock, and jazz. Musicians can find the purity of an old-school jazz box to a hybrid semi-hollow rocker. Artcore is highly respected for its tone, sustain, and the way it holds its tuning. The series continues to push the boundaries of guitar building.
The Ibanez AS73 is the standard of AS models. Its Maple body and sustain block offer acoustic resonance and a naturally bright tone. The Ibanez-original Quick Change III tailpiece enables fast and easy string changing. The Classic Elite pickups offer a rich, nuanced tone with a fat low end. The AS73 is a versatile semi-acoustic electric guitar, perfect for a wide range of musical styles and playing techniques.
