What we say:

At A Glance

Ibanez Artcore guitars are a credible and sensible choice for players on a budget looking for a good quality and well finished hollowbody instrument. They are affordable but they aren't 'cheap' versions of more expensive models. They are their own range with their own feel, vibe and sound that adds a lot to the integrity of the Ibanez brand. It plays well and would be ideal for a guitarist of any ability looking for a classic yet versatile instrument. Whether you need an affordable gigging guitar or want a reliable 2nd instrument, this will step up to the plate with looks, playability, vibe and attitude.

Features We Love:

Classic Looks

The AM53 has been constructed using sapele which is bound on both the front and back. A 'flat' finish (matte & textured by the wood grain) gives this stripped back guitar a really cool vibe. This is echoed by the open coil pickups and singular volume and tone controls.

Pickups

These open coil pickups are ceramic Infinity units, the same as you'd find on an RG model which is a real shredders guitar! These are much hotter pickups than you'd maybe expect to find on a semi-hollow guitar and can do smooth soft tones or push some heavy gain! Due to the construction of the body you can run into some problems with high gain but you may be surprised just how 'rock' this guitar can sound!

Pros:

  • Stripped back looks
  • Loaded with great pickups
  • Classic and natural sounding tones

A great sound from this one , so suitable for jazz and blues. Love it ! For a guitar at this price it's a deal worth investing in.

My girlfriend loves it. She has several guitars, and this is her immediate favourite. She says that it practically plays itself.
