If you want a semi-hollowbody electric guitar with classic looks and premium modern touches — all for a song — then take a good look at the Ibanez Artcore Vintage ASV73 Semi-Hollow. Distressed to conjure the vibey charm of a decades-old axe that's seen its share of onstage action, this beautiful instrument features an old-school look with modern tonal expressiveness. One particularly classy touch is the bound laurel fingerboard on the ASV73's slim, comfortable neck. Loaded with a pair of sweet, singing Classic Elite humbuckers, the Ibanez ASV73 hollowbody delivers a wide range of tone perfect for any musical adventure.
There's no substitute for the mellow and naturally resonant tone of a semi-hollowbody electric guitar, and Ibanez built the ASV73 to deliver their definitive take of this classic sound. Semi-hollowbody guitars have a solid center block into which the pickups, bridge, and tailpiece are affixed. This not only gives the guitar sustain characteristics more similar to a solidbody but also provides feedback resistance. Whether you're playing rockabilly, blues, jazz, or any number of modern fusion styles, you're going to love the sonic character the ASV73 brings to your music.
Ibanez spec'd the Artcore Vintage ASV73 with a pair of Classic Elite humbuckers. These pickups use ceramic magnets for that sweet, singing tone associated with vintage humbucking pickups, preserving your ASV73's natural acoustical warmth and bite while ditching the noise and 60-cycle hum. What's more, Classic Elite humbuckers have a uniquely musical character that guitarists love.
The neck of any guitar has a lot to do with how well it plays, which is why Ibanez selected one of their smoothest and most comfortable necks for the Artcore ASV73 semi-hollowbody guitar. Not only will your hand love the slim carve of this neck, but your fingers will appreciate the beautifully bound fingerboard, with no fret ends to impede your dexterity. And since the ASV73's neck meets its double-cutaway body at the 17th fret, you get easy access to all of those typically hard to reach high notes.
