The Ibanez AS73G Artcore Electric Guitar in Natural finish is an affordable semi-hollowbody that plays beautifully, sounds fantastic, and looks absolutely gorgeous. Whether you're just setting out on 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 for the price. As we've come to expect from the team at Ibanez, the AS73G benefits from a robust build quality, and as soon as you pick up and play one of these beauties, you'll never want to put it down.
Delightful Semi-hollowbody Design
The Artcore semi-hollowbody shape featues a chambered design, which allows the maple tonewood to resonate freely to generate a dense timbre, which is saturated with wamrth 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. The natural finish of the maple is proudly on display for all to admire.
Sturdy Set-In Mahogany Neck
The mahogany 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 freedowm up and down the neck. Paired with the body is a rosewood 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 AS73G 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 AS73G 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 gold, and along with the tortoise-coloured pickguard, complements the natural body finish beautifully.
