Introduced by Ibanez in 2002, Artcore models have become the hollow-body guitar of choice for practicing and professional musicians. Artcore’s combination of quality workmanship and affordability has created legions of fans from diverse genres such as blues, country, rock and jazz. Artcore offers musicians the purity of an old-school jazz box as well as a hybrid semi-hollow rocker. Artcore guitars are highly respected for their tone, sustain and the way the instruments hold their tuning. The series continues to push the boundaries of guitar building. The Ibanez AS73G’s Linden body and sustain block offer wonderful acoustic resonance and a naturally bright tone. The Ibanez-original Quik Change III tailpiece enables fast and easy string changing. The Classic Elite pickups offer a rich, nuanced tone with a fat low end. The AS73G is a versatile semi-acoustic electric guitar, perfect for a wide range of musical styles and playing techniques with sumptuous looks.
