Ibanez introduced Artcore in 2002 and has been the hollow-body guitar of choice for musicians for the last 10 years. The Artcore’s combination of quality workmanship and affordability has created legions of fans from diverse genres as blues, country, rock and jazz. Musicians can find the purity of an old school style jazz-box to a hybrid semi-hollow rocker. Artcore is highly respected for its tone, sustain and the way they hold their tuning and how the series continues to push the boundaries of guitar building.
The AS is a semi-acoustic guitar built to tackle just about any genre of music you throw at it. The AS53 features a beautiful Sapele top, back, and sides with compact semi-hollow style in transparent flat finishes. The moderate output “ACH” pickups feature warm tone and quick response and are mounted into a sustain block for increased sustain and feedback elimination. The slim & comfortable Artcore set-in neck features a 17th fret joint giving comfortable access to higher notes.
