The Ibanez AGS73FM-TKS Artcore Electric Guitar in Violin Sunburst is a semi-hollowbody that boasts some impressive features, plays like a dream, and comes in at an affordable price. The sleek single-cutaway design is adorned with sophisticated finishing touches to make this a truly beautiful guitar. Whether you're a beginner looking for their first model or a seasoned pro looking for a reliable workhorse, then this is the model you've been looking for.
The AGS73FM semi-hollowbody design is smaller is size when compared to other models in the Artcore series, which makes it less cumbersome and a joy to wield on stage. If you're a high energy performer, you're going to love the scaled-down dimensions of this model. The chambered body is built using flamed maple, which not only provides a stunning visual aesthetic with the violin sunburst finish, but also resonates freely and creates a beautifully textured timbre. The f-holes in the body top yield a sweet acoustic response, whilst the sound produced from within is translated by the pickups with the utmost fidelity.
Artcore Mahogany Neck
Fitted to the body using a set-in construction, is a sturdy and reliable mahogany neck. Shaped to the Artcore profile, your hand is given the freedom to roam. Paired with the body is a bound rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 22 medium frets that are adorned with acrylic block inlays. The team at Ibanez has taken care to guarantee that playability is as comfortable as possible, with the binding enabling you to make seamless transitions between each fret. Not only that, but thanks to the single cutaway body profile, the upper frets can be reached with ease.
Classic Elite Humbuckers
The AGS73FM-TKS is equipped with a pair of Classic Elite humbuckers, which are fitted in the neck and bridge positions respectively. The pickup combination can be applied to a wide variety of musical styles, from rockabilly to jazz - and everything in-between.
Control comes in the form of a 3-way pickup selector switch, a master volume pot and a master tone pot. From thick and creamy tones produced by the neck pickups, to the direct and punchy mids of the bridge, or a combination of both, you are equipped to hit the stage or the studio with a huge tonal arsenal.
The AGS73FM-TKS benefits from the carefully appointed ART-1 bridge, which works dutifully to uphold string intonation and sustain. Adjustment can be made with minimum fuss to achieve the action that is right for you. The nut, neck, neck joint, body, bridge and tailpiece, all work in harmony to optimise sustain. The tuning machines maintain string tension and tuning stability with absolute precision, allowing you to play as enthusiastically as you wish.
