Comments about Ibanez Artstar Series AS153 Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar:

This is a well-made, great-sounding, good-looking guitar that is very smooth and easy to play. I was surprised by how well it sounds and plays. After playing other semi-hollow body guitars [Epiphone, Gretsch, Gibson] in this price range, this guitar was the winner for me! I'm impressed by the craftsmanship [even though it's made in China]. You get: (1) ebony fretboard, (2) bone nut, (3) bound body and neck, (4) figured maple top, back, sides, and pick guard!, mahogany and maple neck, etc., I really hope the quality and workmanship stand the test of time. The only changes I made were to install Duncan pickups [the stock pickups are great, but changing them was just my personal preference]. I also added a coil tap on the bridge pickup. Now I have tons of coil selections! This is a great guitar for the money. It's almost as sweet as a woman! Well, almost.
