The Ibanez AS73V Artcore Vintage Electric Guitar mixes stunning low-gloss vintage visage with new technologies so that you get a classic looking instrument that will perform without compromise for a lifetime. Ibanez have proven time and time again that they can build exceptional guitars brimming with character and the AS73V Artcore Vintage certainly backs that up.
Vintage Semi-hollowbody Design
The Artcore Vintage 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.
3-piece Nyatoh Neck
The 3-piece 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 AS73V 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 AS73V 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 crafted and styled to an antique chrome finish which melts into the vintage presentation of this dreamy instrument.
