      Comments about Ibanez Artcore AS73 Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar:

      After 30 years of playing, composing, and collecting, I can say this: this Ibanez AS73 Semi-Hollow shouldn't exist. A semi-hollow for this price?! People have forgotten, but the Gretschs currently priced slighly for under a grand were once five-fifty, and back in '08 the extra cake was for cosmetics and a Bigsby. Now Gretsch has priced the same models a third higher for no apparent reason, and Gibson has lost their minds pricewise with no quality increase--quite dramatically the opposite. Committed solidbody makers like Gibson and Fender (who went up in price for what in exchange exactly?) have turned in panic their Les Pauls and Strats into Semis. Epiphone had 1 semi-hollow back in '07 (a lousy Casino, for I owned it shortly...very); now Epi has a dozen semis that came out of nowhere. All this was set off by Ibanez's success with the Artcore line at a price no semi-hollow could be obtained for in this life or the next. Solid maple, set neck, pinstripe binding, gloss colors with wood grain, locking tuners, a playability between Epi's best Les Pauls (before Gibson destroyed them utterly across the spectrum) and the taught Gretsch feel, and ACH buckers that'll tear your face off. The ACH bucker is one of only 4 stock pickups I would not touch--the others: Rickenbackers, PRS's Original Carved/Burst Singlecut, and the Gretsch Falcon; good company. The ACHs are extraordinarily versitile, clean or under gain. Skip the Artcore with the trapeze (only Ric and Hagstrom understand the trapeze) and get the stopbar tailpiece. For under a grand, this is the only line or guitar I trust. The Guitar World has sold off wood quality for cosmetics, carved tops for satins, and iconic brand identity and true quality playability for quick cash trading in on a rep. Gibson and PRS are the worst offenders. You'll find good stuff here with Artcores. Or get a Gretsch Corvette, the only other serious instrument for under a cool grand. The incomparable PRS Singlecut of half+ a decade ago is dead....but its latest incarnations have birds, if no deep maple carved top! But just my luck, I don't play birds. Try an Artcore.

        Comments about Ibanez Artcore AS73 Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar:

        I'm mainly a telecaster man that was looking for an arch top semi hollow for the shorter neck ad softer type music. I tried an amber AS 73 and immediately fell in love with it. I'm not a fan of a 12" radius neck that Ibanez guitars have, it is very playable to my amazement. Nice sounding pickups, very attractive and perfect finish job along with a sleek 12" radius neck fitted with perfect fret work. Now, if it only holds up thru time, I'll be one happy guy. Thanks Ibanez.

          Comments about Ibanez Artcore AS73 Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar:

          I love this guitar! I wanted a Semi-Hollow Body for a while but couldn't afford a ES335. So, I bought an AS73 in white. The quality is great for the price and the tone is fantastic through my Blues Jr. I recently added a Bigsby B3 with a Towner Tension Bar. It is now a great guitar! Go try one out!

          Comments about Ibanez Artcore AS73 Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar:

          I love it. Great for the price. My only criticisms are slight fret buzz which I quickly fixed with a screwdriver and the Tuning Pegs. The guitar seems to hold the tuning once set, they just take a little more time while tuning. Neck is straight, frets feel smooth, very nice sound, beautiful wood grain and finish.

            Comments about Ibanez Artcore AS73 Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar:

            For years I had thought that the best sound and playability came from a Stratocaster, but when I picked this guitar up at my local music store, I was absolutely flabberghasted. Such fantastic action, such a range of tones, and the over-all balance and feel was out of this world. I've been playing since age 11, some 55 years, and never even considered a semi-hollow bodied guitar as a viable option, but now I can't put it down! I still play my American standard strat hard tail, but there's a new sheriff in town. Did I mention that it is beautiful to look at too? Mine is in tri-color sunburst with antique white binding. even the f-holes have binding, which is unheard of at this price. I would have gladly paid more for this instrument, so the price was not even a consideration.(How does Ibanez do that!?!) I just loved it, period! Get your hands on one as soon as possible, you won't be disappointed!
