Ibanez AS53 Left-handed Semi-hollowbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
Semi-acoustic body with maple top, back, and sides provides a bright and naturally expressive tone
There's no substitute for for the mellow and naturally resonant sound of an electric guitar with a semi-acoustic body. Ibanez built their AS53 semi-hollowbody guitar to capture the jangle and bite of an classic semi-hollowbody, which is why they built it with an all laminate sapele body. Whether you're playing rockabilly, blues, or any number of modern styles, you're going to love the character the AS53 semi-hollowbody guitar brings to your music.
ACH humbucking pickups capture electric sound and acoustic resonance, without 60-cycle hum
Early hollowbody and semi-hollowbody electric guitars had wonderfully expressive tone that came with serious hum issues. That's why Ibanez and other guitar makers quickly developed special humbuckers, such as the ACH series models. These special humbuckers preserve your AS53 semi-hollowbody guitar's bite, but ditch the 60Hz hum and other noise. What's more, ACH humbuckers give the AS53 a unique sonic character that you're sure to have fun with.
Slim mahogany neck and bound rosewood fingerboard give you smooth feel and comfortable action
The neck of any guitar has a lot to do with how well it plays, which is why Ibanez selected one of their smoothest and most comfortable necks for the Artcore AS53 semi-hollowbody guitar. Not only will your hand love the slim carve of this mahogany neck, but your fingers appreciate the beautifully bound rosewood fingerboard. And since the AS53's meets its body at the 17th fret, you get easy access to all of those typically hard to reach high notes.

pretty close to amazing
by James Frank from Bethlehem, PAi got this almost a month ago, and can't stop playing it. my other guitar (a left handed Schecter Diamond Series C-1+, which i also love) feels pretty neglected right about now. this ibanzez plays lik... read more [+]e butter, and sounds fantastic. i realized when i bought it that it is a lower-end guitar, hence the price, so i knew there would be something about it that would need to be upgraded soon after buying it; and i found it. the tuning machinery are probably the worst i've ever had, very flimsy and inaccurate. other than that, this guitar is heavenly close [-]

It also plays real good. I can compare the AS53TFL (left-handed) to my AS73TCR (right-handed) and I believe the Left-hand guitar so... read more [+]unds better then the right-handed guitar. The feel is the same for both guitars. This is also a beautiful guitar and it looks really good on me.
I would give 5 stars only if there were no better guitars.
Great guitar and great price, buy it and you will love it.
BTW Sweetwater is the best (lowest price) place to get this guitar and they really treat every customer really good, they also send you candy in the warranty/paper work packet. They also follow up with a call and an email after your purchase to make sure you are happy with product and service. close [-]
