The ASV10A features a select-grade maple top, back, and sides, and the Artcore Vintage mahogany set-in neck—a neck that’s proven itself over the years on countless Ibanez guitars. Beneath its aged looking façade and smoky, low gloss finish is a sophisticated semi-hollow that can easily handle almost any musical challenge imaginable.

Its bound Rosewood fretboard is inlaid with aged white blocks, and joined to the body at the 17th fret for comfortable access to higher notes. Mounted into a center block for increased sustain and feedback elimination—Ibanez Classic Elite pickups offer warm, ultra-responsive tone with moderate output that allow the ASV10A to venture well beyond the realm of most semi-hollow guitars.
There’s something enticing about the look of an older, vintage guitar—well worn with battle scars, earned throughout its years of hard use. Much like a vintage leather jacket or rare antique furnishings, it immediately feels comfortable and sets a tone unlike anything brand new, right off the shelf. It’s this idea that inspired the new Ibanez Artcore Vintage Series.
