The Ibanez AGS73T-SLB Artcore Hollowbody Electric Guitar in Starlight Blue is an affordable model that is built to suit gigging and recording professionals who demand reliability, versatility, and impeccable tones. As you'd expect from Ibanez, everything about the AGS73T-SLB has been fashioned with care and precision, making this a fantastic guitar.
The body has been crafted completely from maple, which is a crisp and highly resonant tonewood. Combined with the hollowbody shape and profile, the AGS73T-SLB generates an incredible amount of power that is infused with incredible warmth. The lightness and clarity offered by the maple prevents the timbre from becoming muddied or overwhelming, leaving you with a reassuringly smooth output. The body is finished in a striking starlight blue finish, making this a stunning performance partner for any guitarist.
Paired with the body is a set-in mahogany neck. The set-in construction allows the resonant energy created by the strings to travel down to the body efficiently, vastly improving sustain. The mahogany guarantees a sturdy feel in the hand, while the Artcore profile creates a slender and fast playing area for the hand to navigate. Married to the neck is a rosewood fingerboard, which is bound to ensure seamless transitions across all 22-frets. The fingerboard is decorated with acrylic block position inlays.
The ART-2 roller bridge, creating a seamless connection between the strings and body, improving intonation and string tension. The tuning machines uphold tuning integrity precisely, allowing you to get on with the business of rocking out with confidence. The VBS80 vintage vibrato tailpiece creates an old-school feel, allowing you to inject each note with smooth vibrato.
Fitted in the neck and bridge positions are Ibanez Classic Elite passive humbuckers, which translate the luxurious warmth produced in the body to perfection. The neck pickup is excellent for laying down warm rhythm chops, with a smooth and creamy output. The bridge pickup delivers a crisper representation of the maple, with a tighter sound that is fantastic for a more defined attack during leads. If you're looking to lay down so fat, rich textures, then these pickups will become your new best friend.
Each pickup has individual volume and tone control knobs, whilst a three-way pickup selector allows you to select either pickup individually, or both simultaneously.
The Ibanez AGS73T-SLB Artcore Hollowbody Electric Guitar in Starlight Blue is a sophisticated model that guarantees an effortless feel, so that you can get down to business with minimum effort.
