Ibanez AM93 Semi-hollowbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Ibanez's AM Series gets it right
  • Custom 58 pickups deliver amazing tonal versatility
  • Artcore DX set neck gives you superb playing comfort
Ibanez's AM Series gets it right

The Ibanez AM Series guitars walk the line between solid and semi-hollowbody. The AM93's comfortable, compact double-cut body features a solid center block that gives you the sustain typical of a solidbody, while the quilted maple archtop, back, and sides form an acoustic chamber that vents through dual F-holes to give you the added warmth you expect from a classic semi-hollowbody guitar. The design is a delicate balance and Ibanez nails it, giving you a guitar that combines the warmth of a semi-hollowbody with the compact dimensions of a solid.

Custom 58 pickups deliver amazing tonal versatility

Ibanez fitted the AM93 with two Super 58 Custom humbucking pickups that serve up everything from creamy, nuanced jazz tones to a biting growl. Dime these pups through your overdriven tube amp or your favorite boost pedal, though, and you can deploy a barrage of fat, snarling humbucker tone. Did we mention that these pickups are versatile? Take it from Sweetwater's guitar experts - the Ibanez AM93 has the tones you need for any gig!

Artcore DX set neck gives you superb playing comfort

The Ibanez AM93 sports a super-comfortable Artcore DX set neck capped with a warm-sounding 12"-radius bound rosewood fingerboard fitted with 22 medium frets and embellished with elegant pearl block inlays. Not only does this setup look fabulous, but it also feels fantastic in your fretting hand. Your fingers will fly on the Ibanez AM93.

Ibanez AM93 Semi-hollowbody Electric Guitar Features:
  • Comfortable 3-piece mahogany/maple Artcore DX set neck
  • Quilted maple top, back, and sides
  • Bound rosewood fingerboard with 22 medium frets and pearl block inlays

Amazing Guitar

I bought this guitar because it was pretty. As it turns out, I now use it for rehearsals and recording almost exclusively. I have a PRS custom 24, Fender Telecaster, and Hamer Archtop...so I have some great guitars, but this is really nice!!!For the cost, this exceeds my expectations. Also, Sweetwater.com does a great job setting up the guitar before it's delivered.

Oh. My. Gosh. The Chinese CAN build good guitars

Wow! Wow! Wow! I''m TOTALLY blown away. Anyone who disparages Chinese guitars these days is simply living in ignorance.I own quite a few high end instruments. I have an American Strat, a Hamer Studio, a Les Paul Traditional, and a Gibson ES-335. I bought this guitar believing that it would be my "beater" guitar to carry around with my little Vox amp when I'm traveling.The quality of this guitar is EVERY BIT as good as my ES-335. In some ways it is BETTER. The fretwork is much better than the 335. It is absolutely perfect. The setup from Sweetwater was perfect. There is ZERO fret buzz on ANY fret even though the action is set very low. Shred Metal low. The binding is not the very poor plastic found on some low end guitars. It has striations that very closely resemble real ivory. The binding work is absolutely flawless. The f-holes are bound, which the 335 does not have. The finishing of neck binding and fret ends is SUPERIOR to any of the guitars I listed above. There is not a single instance of glue squeeze out on the guitar. Bindings are perfectly scraped. All binding joints are absolutely perfect. Inlays are razor sharp and perfectly precise. The fingerboard is very high quality rosewood with very tight pores and close grain almost resembling ebony.As a matter of fact, the fit and finish of this guitar exceeds the quality of either of the Gibsons and equals that of the Hamer Studio.The neck is thin C. Very comfortable. This thing plays like butter. The pickups are sweet and can drive my '64 Blackface Deluxe Reverb into a nice grind. If I could give this guitar 10 stars, I would. Guys, there is absolutely NO reason to buy a Gibson for four times the price unless you just MUST have the logo on the headstock. Yes. That is how good this guitar is.This thing is a blues machine, and just became my favorite guitar and eclipses my higher end instruments in terms of playability and appearance.Blown away. I'm simply blown away.
