The Artcore Series AM53SRF from Ibanez is a hollow-body electric guitar made with sapele for the top, back, and sides in a flat sunburst red finish. The body is fitted with a mahogany set-in neck which has a bound 22-fret rosewood fingerboard and white dot inlay. The double-cutaway hollow body delivers a warm sound that is well suited for a wide variety of musical styles, including jazz, blues, rock, and country. For electronics, the AM53SRF is equipped with a pair of Infinity R humbucking pickups in the neck and bridge positions, along with a 3-way pickup selector switch, and master volume and tone controls. The pickups offer a smooth tone with plenty of sustain, which is enhanced by the ART-ST tuneomatic-style bridge and stop tailpiece. This affordably priced instrument is highly respected for its tone, sustain, and ability to hold its tuning, making it an ideal choice for players of all levels.
