Ibanez AS103 Artcore Custom Electric Guitar is an excellent Semi Hollow Body guitar, Great to Play, Incredible to look at!
The Artcore AS103 is a semi acoustic electric guitar that features a gorgeous all flame maple body, two Ibanez Custom 58 humbucking pickups, and the new fine tuner equipped Quik Change Ultra tailpiece, which offers easier string changes.
Ibanez stunned the music industry when the first Artcores were unveiled and the appearance of the Artcore Customs in 2005 seems to have had the same effect. No one would have blinked an eye if Ibanez had placed a price tag of over two grand on these beautiful boxes. But the Artcore Customs are less than half that. Now with a semi-acoustic model for players who want more sustain and feedback resistance to play at higher volumes, Ibanez presents a fully comprehensive series. Artcore Custom received two nominations by music industry retailers for the 2006 Music and Sound Awards, Electric Guitar of the Year and Product of Year.
In summer 2002, Ibanez turned the music industry upside down with the Introduction of Artcore guitars. No longer were full and semi-acoustic guitars just big expensive jazz boxes for jazz players - even some of their competitors bought them (no, we're not making this up). With Artcore guitars you get an amazingly affordable price plus the quality and tone you expect from Ibanez, the guitar company with over four decades of experience making full and semi-acoustic guitars.
