Ibanez AS73 Artcore Hollow Body, Olive Metallic
Ibanez AS73 Product Overview by GAK
Part of the Artcore series introduced back in 2002, the Ibanez AS73 is a hollow body, semi-acoustic guitar, popular with blues, country, rock and jazz musicians all over the world.
Highly respected for its tone and sustain and the series continues to push the boundaries of guitar building. The Ibanez AS73 is a true semi-acoustic guitar that's built to be versatile. What's more, with it being an Ibanez there are a few little design tweaks that well and truly set it apart from the semi-acoustic crowd it sits in the centre of.
The guitar features Ibanez's Classic Elite pickups, which offer you rich, nuanced tone with a seriously flat low-end.
The Ibanez designed ART-1 bridge is based around the original tune-o-matic bridge, but designed to provide improved sustain and tuning stability. This is coupled to a Quik Change III tailpiece, with slots to enable faster and easier string changing.
