Ibanez AS73G Artcore Series Hollow-Body Electric Guitar (Mint Blue)
The Artcore Series AS73G from Ibanez is a hollow-body electric guitar made of maple for the top, back, and sides, and has a set-in mahogany neck with a mint blue finish. The hollow double-cutaway body delivers a warm, resonant sound that is well suited for playing jazz, blues, country, and rock. The neck is fitted with a 22-fret bound rosewood fingerboard which has acrylic block inlays, and the headstock is equipped with a set of gold tuners. The strings are intonated by an ART-1 bridge and secured with a Quik Change III tailpiece.
For electronics, the AS73G is equipped with a pair of Classic Elite humbucking neck and bridge pickups, along with a 3-way pickup selector switch, and individual volume and tone controls for each pickup. The pickups offer a rich, nuanced tone with fat low end which nicely complements the wood's inherent tonal qualities.
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.
