The Artcore Expressionist AS83 is built with tone woods selected for their beauty as well as their musicality. The semi-hollow AS83 features maple top, back, and sides, and handsome ivory binding on the body, headstock and fingerboard. An expertly crafted 3pc Maple/ Mahogany set-in neck ensures body liveliness and is fitted with a rich Ebony fretboard with silky contrasting pearl block inlays.
The tortoise shell colored pickguard provides a gorgeous appearance.
The Ibanez-original Quik Change III tailpiece enables fast and easy string changing.
Jazz fans will recognize the Ibanez original Super 58 Custom pickups—the preferred pickup of George Benson, Pat Metheny, and John Scofield used in their own signature models. These pickups provide warm, balanced articulation, and excellent response. Super 58s are at home in variety of genres.
For a decade now, Ibanez has energized the hollow-body segment with a wide range of designs—from rockin’ hybrids to straight-up jazz-boxes. With the introduction of its new Expressionist line, Ibanez has begun yet another chapter in the story of its acclaimed Artcore series.
