A set-in mahogany neck with a bound ebony fingerboard makes the AS200 a pleasure to play. Employing the finest components and exceptional attention to detail, the Ibanez AS200 Prestige is a semi-hollowbody you'll love for a lifetime.

Flame maple body delivers rich sound and great looks

There's no substitute for the mellow and naturally resonant sound of a semi-hollowbody electric guitar. Ibanez built the AS200 Prestige to capture the warmth and punch of a classic semi-hollowbody, which is why they built it with flame maple top, back, and sides. Whether you're playing jazz, blues, or any number of modern styles, you're going to love the character the Japanese-made Ibanez AS200 Prestige semi-hollowbody guitar brings to your music. Take it from the Sweetwater guitar experts - Ibanez's Prestige series guitars are sure to please even the pickiest of players!

Super 58 Custom humbucking pickups deliver warm, rich tone

Early semi-hollowbody electric guitars had a wonderfully expressive tone that came with serious hum issues. That's why Ibanez and other guitar makers quickly developed humbuckers, such as the Super 58 Custom pickups. These humbuckers preserve your AS200 semi-hollowbody guitar's warmth and punch, but ditch the 60Hz hum. What's more, the Super 58 humbucker gives the AS200 a slight edge that's perfect for bluesy licks. The neck-pickup is controlled by a Tri-Sound switch that lets you choose between series, parallel, or just the outer coil, adding zesty single-coil spank to your tone arsenal.

Fast and smooth neck, with Prestige fret-edge treatment

Ibanez selected one of their smoothest and most comfortable necks for the Artstar AS200 semi-hollowbody guitar. Not only will your hand love the comfortable carve of this mahogany neck, but your fingers will appreciate the beautifully bound ebony fingerboard. For even smoother playability, the AS200 has received Ibanez's Prestige fret-end treatment. This essentially rounds off the edges of the frets, making the AS200's fretboard feel even more fluid.

Ibanez AS200 Prestige Semi-hollowbody Electric Guitar Features:
  • A Japanese-made semi-hollowbody electric guitar
  • Perfect for a wide range of musical styles and playing techniques
  • Flame maple top, back, and sides for acoustic resonance and fat tone

Clean and Mean!

Let me start by saying that the first guitar the I ever owned was a 1965 Sears Silvertone semi hollow body that my uncle gave to me when I was a teenager in 1984, I was ignorant at the time and I didn't appreciate the "OLD" guitar because MTV had just came out, and I liked the" NEW", "CRAZY" shaped B.C. Rich style guitars that most hair metal bands were playing at that time. Since that time I have owned a lot of Metal style guitars, and in recent years I have begun to appreciate pre 80's music. On my quest for a more true and raw tone I decided to buy a semi hollow style guitar. I actually bought two semi hollow bodied guitars… An Ibanez AS200 VYS Prestige and A Gibson ES 335 Custom Shop. These are my thoughts on the two awesome but different guitars. First I must say that I am more of a hard rock and blues guy than a jazz player! The Ibanez guitar has better craftsmanship hands down to the Gibson, better finish, better fret job, better playability, higher quality period…BUT… The Gibson has MOJO…it has a voice for Blues and string bends, the Ibanez has string definition and clarity for jazz. I really love both guitars, but for very different reasons. The Gibson and the Ibanez are both "KEEPERS"
