    Find New Expression With This Ibanez AS93VLS Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar In Violin Sunburst - Ibanez Continues To Push The Boundaries

    Ibanez introduced the Artcore Series back in 2002 and they've been the hollowbody guitar of choice for musicians now for over a decade. The Artcore's combination of quality workmanship and affordability has created legions of fans from diverse genres as blues, country, rock and jazz. Musicians can find the purity of an old school style jazz-box to a hybrid semi-hollow rocker. Artcore is highly respected for its tone, sustain and the way they hold their tuning and how the series continues to push the boundaries of guitar building; the Artcore Expressionist Series takes it a step further.

    Jazz fans will recognize the Ibanez original Super 58 pickups, which is the preferred pickup of George Benson, Pat Metheny and John Scofield for their own Signature models. A jazz favorite, yes, but as funk guitarist Eric Krasno has been proven, the Super 58s perform well in a variety of situations. Warm, balanced articulation, and excellent response characterize the Super 58 pickups.

    This thinline semi-hollowbody model is more compact in size than the Artcore AF Series, and is in a double cutaway style. It has two covered humbuckers, binding around neck and headstock, as well as the body and f-holes, with block-style inlays along the fretboard. It utilizes an AT-1  bridge and stop tailpiece. The body is laminated (as most will be in an arch top style of guitar).

    To sum up, the AS93 is reasonably priced, with a build quality nicer than most others sharing a similar price range. It has traditional features, great build quality, and upgraded pickups.
