The AGS73FM features a select-grade Maple top, back, and sides. The fretboard is warm, bound Rosewood, contrasted by brilliant block inlays. The Artcore Mahogany neck has proven its reliability on thousands of Ibanez hollow and semi-hollow bodies throughout the years. The Classic Elite pickups are moderate output, warm in tone, yet very responsive for various music genres. Sure Grip III knobs provide non-slip functionality and an ART-1 bridge provides improved sustain and tuning stability.
The Ibanez Artcore collection has succeeded in smashing any and all preconceptions in its wake as to what a great hollow or semi-hollow ought to be. The Artcore formula builds on equal parts luthiery know-how, daring design, and a passion for warm, full-bodied tone.
