Product Description

The Ibanez Artcore AS73 is one of the most versatile electric guitars available. This semi-acoustic design has been used in almost every genre of popular music including jazz, fusion, rock, R&B and blues. The Ibanez AS series of guitars feature a block of wood (sustain block) in which the pickups are mounted. This gives the guitar increased sustain and helps eliminate feedback. When Ibanez introduced the Artcore guitars in 2002, they turned the music industry upside down. No longer were full and semi-acoustic guitars just big expensive jazz boxes for jazz players--even some of competitors bought them (no, we're not making this up). With Ibanez Artcore guitars you get an amazingly affordable price plus the quality and tone you expect from Ibanez, the guitar company with over four decades of experience making full and semi-acoustic guitars. The Ibanez AS73 is versatile and affordable, order yours today.

I'll buy another in the Ibanez hollybody line, again.

It did show some fretwear, but is imminently playable and already in my gig rotation, after a pickup and bridge upgrade.

I have played a lot of guitars in my 50+ years and I can say this is a winner.

Sure, this guitar does not compare with Guilds or Gibsons but you get what you pay for. Aside from being a very handsome guitar this thing is very versatile. It will do nice ringing jazz chords and if you use distortion it has a very unique sound. I really like the bouncy feel of the strings, when you play it plays back with a very lively spring in its step. Make sure a qualified person sets it up because it can play very low

I'd previously goofed around on dad's Strat but this was my first electric. Sounds great w/ bridge pickup and tone at 4 through just about anything, I normally play with a G-DEC Jr and many different settings. I recommend D'Addario Blues/Jazz rock strings, Ernie Balls sounded too much like a Strat. I managed to get it on sale at a national chain for $260, would definitely get another if something happened to this within reasonable prices. It won't go for metal, but if you're looking at this you probably don't care.

I have owned this guitar for about 7 years. Mine is in transparent cherry. I used to play out but don't anymore. I would with this one though. I play through a Peavey Classic 50 410 and I can get the tones that suit my style of playing. The finish on mine is nearly flawless. I love the neck and it stays in tune. I did have to adjust the intonation but not a big deal. I have played a lot of guitars in my 50+ years and I can say this is a winner. I paid closer to $300.00 when I bought mine. Even at the price they go for today I believe it is a fine purchase. I for sure would recommend going to a shop and playing a few different semi-hollows then make a choice. I did and this is what I ended up with. No regrets.

Verified Purchase
the as73 was exactly as advertised. I bought it used. It did show some fretwear, but is imminently playable and already in my gig rotation, after a pickup and bridge upgrade.
