Styled in a green valley gradation finish, the AS Artcore Series AS73FM from Ibanez is a hollow-body electric guitar with a flamed maple top, and a linden back and sides. The hollow double-cutaway body delivers a warm, resonant sound that is well suited for playing jazz, funk, blues, and rock.
The body is fitted with a 24.7" scale set-in nyatoh neck. Atop the neck sits a bound laurel fingerboard fitted with 22 medium frets. The acrylic block inlays add a classic touch to the look of the instrument.
For electronics, the AS73FM is equipped with a pair of Classic Elite humbucking neck and bridge pickups, offering a rich, nuanced tone with a fat low end. A 3-way pickup selector switch and dedicated volume and tone controls for each pickup allow you to fine-tune their desired sound.
The guitar's sustain is enhanced by the ART-1 tune-o-matic-style bridge and Quik Change III stop tailpiece. This attractive instrument is highly regarded for its playability and tone, and is also reasonably priced, making it an ideal choice for intermediate and advanced players.
