OVERVIEW

Impressive style and sound.

As evidenced by its long-standing association with such giants of jazz guitar as George Benson, Pat Metheny, and John Scofield, Ibanez has been a constant pioneer in the world of hollow-body guitar building for more than three decades. Part of that legacy is owed to the Artcore collection, which has succeeded in smashing any and all preconceptions in its wake as to what a great hollow or semi-hollow ought to be. The Artcore formula builds on equal parts luthiery know-how, daring design, and a passion for warm, full-bodied tone.

The AS73G features a select-grade maple semi-hollow body, a set-in mahogany neck and rosewood fretboard contribute to the warm-sounding characteristics of the AS73G. Ibanez designed the Classic Elite pickups to give you big, full tone and well-balanced output. Case sold separately.

Comments about Ibanez Artcore Series AS73G Semi-Hollow Body Electric Guitar:

I have had this guitar for a few weeks now and I now can say it is worth the money. The Mint Blue color is very stunning in person. They did a good job with the frets (no shape edges). The pickups sound good but not great when compare to my other guitars. I am going to change the pickups too Seymour Duncan jazz pickups because I know that it will really bring out the tone on this guitar. The only negative things I can say is that the trust rod wrench that they send with the guitar is the wrong size and the pickguard is a little warped and does not fit that well to the top of the guitar. This guitar looks and feels like a guitar that would cost a lot more. I give it thumbs up!

      Comments about Ibanez Artcore Series AS73G Semi-Hollow Body Electric Guitar:

      Over the years, I had the fever for a Gibson ES 335 and some tasty Jazz boxes. First, I had decide to go ahead and pay the sticker for an ES... then, I started to seek out used pieces. Discovery, the Gibsons have thin sounding treble strings, they look good and feel great, but the sound was nowhere as punchy and strong as the price tag would suggest. so, never bought one. Then, I had the hots for a jazz box. Got a used Pat Metheney, excellent guitar... but, big and no high fret access... as well as just one pickup (not a prob really) and not distortion friendly. So, what was the solution? Look at semi-acoustics, again.... I saw this one in a store quite a while back and immediatley thought it was pretty and had that sweet sound where the notes jump/pop out. Months later, a holiday sale came around and the time was right (absolutely cannot bet this price-point for what you get). When the guitar arrived, it was better than I remembered. Just like the Pat Metheney I had briefly, this guitar felt immediately light and resonant, just like a fine high-end instrument would/should. The fret-work is basically text-book, as was the setup and finish (nothing needed adjusting, at all). The pickups do not need upgrading as far as I'm concerned, they are well-matched for the guitar (all bass/treble you need). In short, If you are like me, not a pro/accomplished jazzer that can justify a very expensive semi-hollow, this guitar gives you amazing value (the solid color is WAY better than transparent), plays comfortable, fast and sounds anywhere from smooth and creamy to jangly chords and classic-rock styled distorted riffing though a marshall. Again, would I have been more happy spending $3k on a Gibson? No... I just would have been stuck with a high bill to pay.
