Product Description

With its Flamed Maple top, back, and sides, the Ibanez AS153 Artstar Semi Hollowbody Electric Guitar emanates great jazz, blues and rock tone and vibe. The bound Ebony fingerboard sports medium frets with edges that are noticeably smooth to a sliding hand, the product of a skilled crimping technique generally found on instruments costing twice as much. The AS153 Artstar features a set neck, rosewood fingerboard, and a bone nut for increased resonance and sustain.

Ibanez AS153 Artstar Semihollow Electric Guitar Features

  • 3-piece Mahogany/ Maple set-in neck
  • Bound Ebony fingerboard with Acrylic/ Abalone block inlay
  • Medium frets and the Artstar Fret Edge Treatment
  • Super 58 pickups
  • Tri-Sound switch for the neck pickup 
  • Hardshell case included 
Ibanez gives the AS153 guitar their famous Super 58 Custom pickups, known for their balanced tone character as well as sonic fullness. Whether restrained to ‘jazz-clean’ or cranked up to ‘rockin’ blues dirty,’ the Super 58 Custom gets the job done.

Ibanez calls their new Artstar models, ‘Hollow-bodies of the highest order.’ As the guitar builder for some of the brightest luminaries of modern jazz guitar, Ibanez has paved some middle ground between their upscale signature models and their popular Artcore series.

If you want a jazz guitar.

Product Review

Out of the box this ax played like I had done my MoJo on it. Sounds are many, sustain is Long, Sweet chords make my teeth hurt. I own many guitars, from Fender, Godin, PRS$$ this for the money has to be the best I own now.

What's not to like about this guitar

Product Review

Sure I wanted an ES335. But I sure can't afford it. So I looked around and decided I would try the AS153. I can always return it, right? And a large part of me had pre-decided that would probably happen. Well I bought it 2 weeks ago and I love it. Setup is on the money. Sound is awesome. Finish (blue) is beautiful. Action is great even with 10-52's. Will probably change to 9's. I am really impressed.

This guitar is an amazing guitar...and for that price, a steal!

Product Review

I own: Gibson Les Paul Traditional, Fender Elite Telecaster, Fender Select Strat, Gretsch G5422TG and several other guitars. This Jewel Blue Burst is the finest, best sounding guitar of the lot. I'm really impressed with it. I bought it using AMS's 12-month with zero interest...what a great deal! It can be a bit worrisome to buy online, but I feel completely comfortable dealing with American Musical Supply. In the past, I had one guitar from them that was not good quality...they took it back no questions asked, at their expense. What more can one ask than that a company stand behind their product, good or bad?!? I made a one-minute demo of this Ibanez AS153 that you may view here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R7ebE4StcO0&t=17s

WOW!

Product Review

I bought the Ibanez AS153 and couldn't believe the quality of the guitar, absolutely beautiful and the guitar is Made in China. You can save yourself a lot of money from buying the Gibson ES335 and just buy the Ibanez AS153. Sounds great, looks amazing and it's only $999.00.

I Love This Guitar

Product Review

This instrument just feels "quality" to me.... and it's stunningly beautiful and sounds amazing. The action was perfectly to my tastes (low) right out of the box with no buzzing or intonation problems. If you're thinking about a $3000 Gibson... do yourself a favor and at least check this out first.
