Macassar Ebony Body
The AM93ME top, back and sides are hewn from Macassar Ebony, an exotic tonewood with woody overtones and a low to mid end thump that's perfect for anything from blues and jazz to rock and folk. Not only do you get stunning natural looks with Macassar but you can be comfortable in the knowledge that this tonewood produces an instrument with a clarity of tone and depth.
AM Expressionist Set Neck
The solid nyatoh/maple 3-piece set-in neck creates a feeling of reliable sturdiness, whilst the AM Expressionist profile makes it a joy to run your playing hand along with minimum effort. The nyatoh/maple resonates sweetly and thanks to the set-in construction, transfers the energy of the strings efficiently. The bound ebony fingerboard is home to 20 medium-sized frets, which aid in seamless transitions between frets. Acrylic block position inlays guide your way in style.
Ibanez Original Super 58 Pickups
The AM93ME comes loaded with two Ibanez Super 58 pickups, the pickups of choice for jazz greats George Benson, Pat Metheny and John Scofield. Known for being warm and balanced with fantastic response these pickups are comfortable in a myriad of genres. Control comes in the form of a 3-way pickup selector switch and separate volume and tone knobs for the bridge and neck pickups. 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.
High Quality Hardware
String and tuning integrity is supported by the ART-1 bridge and Quik Change III tailpiece, reinforcing the strings' connection to the body to optimise intonation and sustain and making for quick string changes. The gold hardware adds a touch of class to this already beautiful instrument.
