Ibanez's Artcore AS53 is a value-packed semi-hollow that delivers tight, clear tones, even under heavy settings. This guitar is perfect for rock musicians seeking a well-rounded semi-hollow with a classic aesthetic to add to the collection.
The AS53 features a linden semi-hollow body that produces a bright, resonant sound with tight lows and crisp, clear highs. Its nato neck not only plays remarkably well, but also accentuates the guitar's low-mid response, filling out its sound beautifully. And thanks to its bound walnut fingerboard and white dot inlays, the AS53 has a classic look that blends with any setting.
Ibanez equipped this guitar with Infinity R humbuckers that deliver an incredibly focused sound with tight lows, punchy mids, and articulate highs. If you're the kind of player who loves stacking dirt pedals for snarling, gritty tones, you'll love how well these pickups retain clarity and definition, even under intense settings.
Complete with a Gibraltar Performer bridge that provides excellent sustain and tuning stability, the Ibanez Artcore AS53 is a rockin' semi-hollow guitar that's great for players on a budget.
