The Ibanez Artcore AM53 Hollowbody Electric Guitar combines quality workmanship with excellent affordability. When you play the AM53, it is easy to understand why this model has become so popular among both those picking up the guitar for the first time, and seasoned pros.
The AM53 has a lightweight, hollowbody design that guarantees maximum comfort and minimal fatigue during performances. The chambered body is crafted using sapele, which works beautifully with the hollowbody shape. The AM53 generates a rousing mid-range energy that is interspersed with warmth to create a timbre with depth and character. The f-holes in the top yield a sweet acoustic response, whilst the sound produced from within flows up through them beautifully. The double-cutaway body profile makes it easier for the fretting hand to access the neck in its entirety.
Artcore Mahogany Set-in Neck
Ibanez has employed a set-in construction for the neck joint, giving the mahogany a sturdy feel in the hand. The joint also maximises sound transference from the neck to the body for greater sustain. Married to the neck is a rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 22 medium frets that are adorned with white dot position inlays.
Infinity R Humbuckers
A pair of Infinity R humbuckers are fitted between the neck and bridge positions. The pickup combination can be applied to a wide variety of musical styles to suit all musicians. Controls include a 3-way pickup selector switch, a master volume pot and a master tone pot. From luscious, creamy tones produced by the neck pickups, to the punchy mids of the bridge, or a combination of the two, you are equipped to hit the stage or the studio right away.
Fitted to the body of the AM53 is the winning team of an ART-ST bridge and tailpiece. Adjustments can be made with minimum fuss to set up the string action, whilst the hardware works dutifully to optimise intonation and sustain throughout each and every performance. The headstock hosts resilient and reliable chrome finished tuning machines that maintain string tension and tuning stability with precision, allowing you to play as zealously as you wish.
