Product Description

If you thought the only good semi-hollow guitars were expensive, think again. Ibanez Artcore AS73 is the kind of semi-hollow that can tackle just about any genre of music you throw at it. The pickups are mounted into a sustain block for increased sustain and feedback elimination while the 17th fret joint offers comfortable access to higher notes.

Ibanez Artcore AS73 Semihollow Guitar Features

  • Select-grade maple top, back, and sides
  • Bound Laurel fretboard
  • Artcore Mahogany neck
  • Classic Elite pickups 
Under its Transparent Cherry Red finish, the AS73 features a select-grade maple top, back, and sides. The fretboard is warm, bound laurel, contrasted by brilliant Acrylic block inlays. The Artcore Mahogany neck has proven its reliability on thousands of Ibanez hollow and semi-hollow bodies throughout the years. Ibanez designed the Classic Elite pickups to give you big, full tone and well-balanced output.

IBA AS73 LIST Ibanez AS100C Style Case
To protect and transport your guitar, Ibanez recommends the optional AS100C Style Electric Guitar Case (#IBA AS100C).

Great Value that can be superb with upgrades
Product Rating
What is your opinion of this product?
As an experienced player, modder, and builder of guitars for almost 30 years I found this to be a great value out of the box. Pros; The frets were relatively smooth and level, the finish was spotless. The pickups worked well at full volume. This guitar is extremely resonant. It has great acoustic, and amplified sustain stock. The potiemeter taper us suprisingly good. Cons; The fretboard needed oiled. I also buffed the frets with planet waves polishing papers. Despite a smooth taper of the pots it gets muddy fast as you turn the volume down. A treble bleed or changing to 50's wiring is much needed. The pickups wile good, are far from great. I replaced the stock pickups with a Duncan Seth lover in the neck, and a Duncan Screamin demon in the bridge both with nickel covers. The pickups sound amazing from smooth jazz and R&B, to funk and Jam band, to classic and hard rock. The tail piece needed a burr filed off so that the strings could go through correctly. With the improved pickups I find it as pleasant to play as my JSM-10, or Gibson ES-335 dot. At some point I may upgrade the bridge and not. The tuning machines work great so I see no need for any change. One thing that surprised me was the size of the neck. It was much closer to a 50's neck profile then the older AS-73's. I really like it. I would recommend this to anyone who wants a great value, but wants high priced performance.

Can’t be beaten
What is your opinion of this product?
Hands down, for the money, best semi-hollow out there. Plays and sounds awesome. Great fit and finish. This thing can’t be beat. Ibanez definitely gets it right with their hollow and semi-hollow bodies.

A great first semi-hollow
What is your opinion of this product?
Pros: beautiful finish, build quality exceeds the price (pickups, controls, frets, etc.). Has that wonderful voicing that makes semi-hollow guitars so cool. Con: setup was mediocre. It was playable out of the box, but the neck was VERY straight (no relief at all at the 7th fret) and the bridge was high to make up for that. Needed a bit of work to get it correct (truss rod, bridge, intonation). That is why four stars instead of five. In all, though, I seriously love it.

Excellent buy. Sounds and looks great.
Your general opinion of this product.
I am thrilled with this guitar. Because it is made in China and has 'Ibanez' on the head stamp it costs about a quarter what it would if had a 'Gibson' logo on it. And IMO, it is every bit as good as far as quality, look, feel, and sound.
Very well made. I've had it about two weeks so can't speak to the dependability too much, but I've played the heck out of it so far and I see no potential issues.
Very playable for me. I have average sized hands and the neck is slightly thicker/wider than my Les Pauls but I actually find it easy and cleaner to play....more 'room for error' (which can come in handy for me!) much like my Telecaster. It's fast, smooth, and feels great.
Though I've been playing for a couple decades this is actually my first non solid body electric guitar, so I don't have another semi to compare it to, but I love the tone. Nice all around melodic, singing tone. Very versatile with the 3 position selector switch, capable of nice biting leads too. Playing through my 100 watt Fender Frontman the pick ups have plenty of juice even on low volume levels. If I could only own one guitar, and it had to be this one, I could definitely live with that.
Action was just about right for me out of the box. I'm not a pro, so I'm not super particular regarding the action, but felt good to me.
Absolutely gorgeous. I rolled the dice and got the Tobacco Brown and I couldn't be happier. The pictures don't do it justice. It looks like a classic violin type finish, just the right amount of color, gloss and wood grain. Binding and trim is perfect. This guitar easily looks like a $1,000 to $1,500 baby, IMO. Very impressed, as is everyone else that has seen it.
Only had it a couple weeks so we shall see. But I don't see any potential issues. We still have my son's first guitar I bought him, a red entry level Ibanez SG that's about 10 years old now...and still going strong. I still love my Gibson and Fender guitars too, but would not hesitate to buy an Ibanez again. Best I can tell the quality is right there with them.

Love my Ibanez AS73
yes, and Ibanez has always been dependable
well for the first 30 days its great. I do not expect any problems.
Your general opinion of this product.
This a great guitar for the money. A real value in todays guitar market. Mine was shipped with a flawed tuner. The chrome was wrinkled but I just ordered a matching tuner on the net for five bucks. It is a beautiful instrument that is comfortable to play.
It has what I call an older style neck. Not too wide and a pronounced "C" shape on the back. It fits the way I play with my thumb low on the neck. I never wrap my thumb over the top. The control are solid and many variations can be had by rolling off the tone pots. For most stuff I have to hold the pick ups back to 7 or 8. On 10 they are very hot. I have owned pre-amped guitars with less tone control.
What ever you want from almost acoustic to sweet singing jazz chords to over-drivin blues tone. I don't play metal but it makes my fuzz setting wail also.
Excellent except for the one tuner.
Set up a little high for me with nines. I changed to tens and it just sings. I will reset the action some day but for now I can't quit playing it long enough to work on it.

Great guitar!
Ibanez has been building great guitars since they began to appear on the market. I used to work in a music store and saw very few problems with any of their guitars.
I have only had it for a short time but I don't see anny issues with it that would suggest it to be unreliable.
Your general opinion of this product.
I have tried several 335 coipes and done comparisons. This guitar is superb for the price!
The neck is perfect for my hands and style. Very easy to play. The controls are the typical 335 set up which I have always liked. 2 tone and 2 volume.
Some people say the pickups are not hot enough and so on. I did an A/B with a real 335 with a $2000.00 price tag. Same amp and settings. I could barely tell any difference in the tone or feel. In fact I liked the As-73 better! i f you are comparing to soem active electronics style guitar maybe it might not be as loud but for the music I play it's perfect.
I ordered the sunburst color because it looks richer than the red in my opinion.
The guitar played beautifully right out of the box.
