The Ibanez AS63 Artcore Electric Guitar is a very capable and affordable semi-hollowbody that plays beautifully, sounds fantastic, and looks stunning. Whether you're just starting your musical career, have a few years experience under your belt, or are a seasoned pro, you'll be amazed at how much guitar you get for the price. As we've come to expect from the team at Ibanez, the AS63 benefits from robust build quality, and as soon as you pick up and play the AS63, you'll be hooked.
Vibrant Semi-hollowbody Design
The Artcore semi-hollowbody shape features a chambered design, which allows the sapele tonewood to resonate freely to generate a dense timbre, which is saturated with warm overtones. The body top features stylish f-holes, which allows the tones to be projected acoustically for a richly textured output at any volume. The body is both slender and light in weight, making it a joy to wield on stage, with deep double-cutaways that enable greater access to the upper frets.
Solid Nyatoh Neck
The nyatoh neck is fitted to the body using the set-in construction method, giving the joint strength and durability during performances. The Artcore neck profile creates the perfect playing surface for performing smooth string bends, fretting elaborate chord shapes, tearing through speedy scale runs, and moving with freedom up and down the neck. Paired with the body is a laurel fingerboard, which is home to 22 frets that are adorned with acrylic block position inlays, and bound to facilitate seamless transitions between frets.
Classic Infinity Humbuckers
The AS63 is equipped with a pair of Infinity R 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 AS63 is equipped with an ART-ST bridge, which is paired with a matching tailpiece to create a winning partnership that ensures intonation is upheld with precision. The nut, neck, neck joint, body, bridge and tailpiece, all work in harmony to optimise sustain so that you can let notes ring out for days. All hardware is completed in chrome that adds the perfect garnish to this colourful series.
