mojo alien

Comments about Ibanez AS73B Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar:

This guitar has a dark & beautiful clean & unclean sound, just the way I like it. I feel it is to IBANEZ as the LES PAUL is to GIBSON. I call her Christine, after the Stephen King movie. So demonic. My friend came by to check it out & said it's looking like it has horns & wanted to hear it right then. I did have to make some minor adjustments with the action & intonation. I love this guitar.

Uh... What????

By Riff Raff-q4qsI

from From AZ, stationed in Germany.

Comments about Ibanez AS73B Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar:

When I bought the guitar I also bought a set of Duncan's like I always do (for my six strings.. I get BK Painkillers or aftermaths for my 7 and 8 strings), but I didn't need them!!!! I plugged it in just to see... and wow.... The clarity, the crunch, the beef... cleans were amazing... I was stunned... I thought I may of been hearing it wrong. I called over my other guitarist and he too was in awe on how great this bargain semi-hallow sounded... I have no plans on changing the pickups. Its sounds amazing and looks great. Couldn't be happier.
Its got every thing you need. 3-way switch. Vol/Tone knobs for each pup. Stock ass tuners and machine heads that keep tunings.
I gave it a 9 because the input jack was loose and kind of a pain to tighten without snapping the ground wire.
Can't beat the price. Especially for this guitar.

I stopped at this guitar.

By Mark Dismount

from Texas

Comments about Ibanez AS73B Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar:

I purchased this guitar determined to replace my full-hollow Ibanez (which also sounds fantastic), as my new main guitar for both live performance and recording. This guitar immediately had me sold based on tone quality alone. I've been playing for ten years and it blew every other guitar I've touched out of the water. The playability and fingerboard comfort is top-notch, in my opinion, and the response from the (stock) pickups was punchy enough to make the cut, but, being a steadfast endorser in aftermarket pickups, I put in a DiMarzio Bluesbucker(b) and a PAF PRO(n), and the tone quality hit that sweet spot I was looking for. Also, the appearance of this guitar is as mean as its tone quality off the shelf. Totally worth the purchase.

Great Guitar!

By Particle

from Milwaukee, WI

Comments about Ibanez AS73B Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar:

I got this guitar used for super cheap and completely love it. The pickups are quiet and clean and the action is great. The only time I need to tune it is when the weather changes. I adjusted the intonation myself and that was the only real adjusting it needed when I got it. The finish is a nice flat black, but I think I'm going to repaint over that. Overall, this is a great guitar for the price. It seems that the ArtCore line from Ibanez is extremely well done. I've played a few other ArtCore guitars and they were all great as well. Eventually I'd like to get the Ibanez AS93 with the transparent blue finish.

Great For The Price!

By My Friends Band!

from Belton, TX

Comments about Ibanez AS73B Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar:

I had been looking at hollowbody/semi-hollowbody guitars for a couple of years, when someone suggested I try the ibanez artcore AS73B. I'd never been a big fan of ibanez, but I figured I'd give it a try. Low and behold, the action was awesome, and it stayed in tune! I'd been debateing between this and a low-line gretsch, and this played a lot better and was half the price! it even played about as well as the 2700 dollar gibson! I've recently been useing this guitar more than I use my gibson les paul standard, gibson sg, or even my peavey wolfgang I'd recomend this guitar to anyone who wants a semi-hollowbody, but doesn't want to empty thier savings account.

Don't Let the Price Fool You!

By pastor mick-bX76D

from Ontario

Comments about Ibanez AS73B Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar:

I had been looking for a jazz box that could growl for a long time; this Ibanez fills the bill stunningly. Regardless of the price range you are looking in, do yourself a favor and check this out before you lay down the cash for something far more expensive. Apart from a little set-up work (the action was just a breath high) this thing is great from the start. I don't think anyone really expects this quality from the price point; or the place of origin for that matter. (I have to admit, in spite of my satisfaction with this Ibanez, I have a little bit of a bias toward the American guitars.) This guitar can move from a smooth jazz sound to some serious crunch without any difficulty. The pickups are quiet and cooperative. The tone controls actually work and the fit and finish are beautiful. I don't know why these things are not twice the price. This guitar can compete with all but the nicest 335s.The black may not be everyone's cup of tea, but the quality and sound are so good that it is tough to quibble at the flat black. As well, if you have a choice, play it through a real tube amp. You will notice the difference.Unless you are a total slave to a label, you have to look at these. Ibanez puts serious quality into these things. Most people will never guess how little you really paid. Easy to play, great to listen to, easy on the wallet.

Great buy

By Steve-gIEwJ

from Illinois

Comments about Ibanez AS73B Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar:

Exact same thing happened when I bought this guitar as when I bought my acoustic. Walked into the store with a higher budget and another brand in mind, walked out with an Ibanez spending much less than I was prepared to spend. This guitar just felt right, good action and the finish on the guitar is beautiful, and raw. The flat finish on the back of the neck makes for fast movement up and down the neck, very smooth. Great tone to the guitar brought out by the semi-hollow body. I have learned, Ibanez offers great guitars for less money, I have an acoustic and an electric to prove it. I coupled my purchase of this guitar with the purchase of a Digitech RP70 effects unit and there is little that this combo can't do. Very versatile.

very good guitar, for a very low price

By KevinLB2A

from Grapevine, Texas

Comments about Ibanez AS73B Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar:

I bought this guitar a while back in june when my PRS ES-EG was totaled. since my only budget was small, I had very slim pickings. I had always wanted a hollowbody, but all of the ones there in my pricerange had something wrong with them. I thought I would have to just give up, until I found this semi hollow. I plugged it in, and it was an incredible sound. Despite the fact that it wasn't properly set up like most factory made guitars, its intonation was almost dead on, the neck was hardly wapred, and the action was almost perfect. After about a month of playing it, the imput stopped working. I took it to a luthier, and he fixed it on the spot and gave me a new jack because the one that it had originally was twisting, which made the cords inside tangle until there was no imput. If you're thinking about replacing the pickups, DO NOT REPLACE THE PICKUPS. just have them raised, and it sounds alot better. Ibanez makes good pickups, they just need to be raised. That will save you about 500 dollars. I recently got it set up, and it plays better than ever. The intonation, action, and pickups are at its max potential and makes an amazing guitar. Please dont overlook this one. This is a great guitar and its at a really low price. And with a setup job, it sounds even better.

This Guitar Rocks

By 46GMC

from Las Vegas

Comments about Ibanez AS73B Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar:

This guitar is much better than I thought it would be. It was set up and had good strings out of the box. It plays great and sounds great also. Heavy Rockabilly, Hard Rock, or Heavy Metal. The fit and finish are tight. It has cool pinstripes that were not in the discription.
