The Ibanez AS73FM Artcore Electric Guitar is a strikingly beautiful semi-hollow body that plays just as fabulous as it looks. Whether you're just beginning your guitar journey, or a seasoned player looking to get a semi-hollow, you'll be amazed at how much quality there is in such an affordable model. As we've come to expect from the team at Ibanez, the AS73FM benefits from a very high-standard build quality so that you get a truly immersive guitar experience.
Striking Semi-hollowbody Design
The Artcore semi-hollow body shape features a chambered design, which allows the maple tonewood to resonate freely to generate a dense timbre, which is saturated with warmth and presence. 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.
Sturdy Set-In 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 Elite Humbuckers
The AS73FM 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 AS73FM is equipped with an ART-1 bridge, which is paired with the Quik Change III 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 to finish off the AS73FM's striking looks.
