Ibanez AS73 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 the mellow and naturally resonant sound of an electric guitar with a semi-acoustic body. Ibanez built their AS73 semi-hollowbody guitar to capture the jangle and bite of a classic semi-hollowbody, which is why they built it with an all-laminate maple body. Whether you're playing rockabilly, blues, or any number of modern styles, you're going to love the character the AS73 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 AS73 semi-hollowbody guitar's bite, but ditch the 60Hz hum and other noise. What's more, ACH humbuckers give the AS73 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 AS73 semi-hollowbody guitar. Not only will your hand love the slim carve of this mahogany neck, but your fingers will appreciate the beautifully bound rosewood fingerboard.

AS73 is an Amazing Deal!
by Steve D. from CNYI have to admit, this was my first guitar in the semi-hollow world. I was looking to go a little more budget friendly as I wasn't sure how I would get along with it. I had always heard that the Ibanez... read more [+] AS Series were very good guitars. Needless to say, I was just stunned at the quality of this guitar for what I paid for it. The finish is just beautiful, I was really taken by the cosmetic beauty of the Tobacco Brown finish. The build quality far exceeded what I expected from a $400 guitar. Then....I plugged it in.....a resounding WOW here too! The clean tone was just awesome! I expected the pickups to be a little flat and uninspiring, but once again I was wrong. The block running under the bridge and pickups really does eliminate the feedback. The guitar reacts very well to gain too, whether it be an OD pedal or the lead channel of my tube amps. It's very easy to play as well. I'm more of a 9-42 string gauge guy, but this guitar plays effortlessly with 10's on it. All the hardware is above average. Overall a great value and I would highly recommend this guitar. Now I just need to grab a case for it since I now know it's a keeper! close [-]

Great action, wonderful intonation and rich tones...unbelievable combination for a guitar in this price range. Kudos to Ibanez for their workmanship and to Sweetwater for carrying this truly wonderful guitar. close [-]
