The Ibanez Artcore AM53 Hollowbody Electric Guitar combines quality workmanship with affordability to perfection. When you play one, it is easy to understand why this model is so popular amongst both those picking up the guitar for the first time, and seasoned pros.
Sleek Hollowbody Design
The AM53 is built using a lightweight, hollowbody design that guarantees maximum comfort during performances. The chambered body is crafted using sapele, which works beautifully in partnership with the hollowbody shape. The AM53 generates a rousing mid-range energy that is infused with warmth to create a brilliant timbre with depth and character. The f-holes in the top yield a sweet acoustic response, whilst the sound produced from within is translated faithfully by the pickups. The double-cutaway body profile makes it easier for the fretting hand to reach 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 reassuringly 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. The fingerboard binding guarantees that transitions between frets are as seamless as can be, allowing you to guide along with effortless grace. Not only that, but thanks to the double-cutaway body profile, the upper frets can be reached with ease.
Infinity R Humbuckers
To ensure the warm character of the body is translated accurately, 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, 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.
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 is home to resilient chrome finished tuning machines that maintain string tension and tuning stability with absolute precision, allowing you to play as enthusiastically as you wish.
