Ibanez AS83 Expressionist Steel Blue Semi-hollowbody Electric Guitar

Ibanez AS83 Expressionist Steel Blue Semi-hollowbody Electric Guitar - The Artcore series from Ibanez has been a long-standing staple of their catalogue. Although the company are most renowned for their cutting-edge instruments aimed at hard rock and metal players, their Artcore line is for the old-school jazz cats and blues players. With premium specifications and a traditional construction, the AS83-STE is an elegant guitar that offers far more than its modest price suggests.

Construction

The semi-hollow Maple body provides a super-bright and vibrant sound, with excellent resonance and acoustic-like projection. For chord-based playing, you'll get plenty of mid-range clarity and a sparkly top-end that'll easily cut through a busy mix.

Paired with a 3-piece Mahogany/Maple neck, you can expect a sturdy-feeling neck which will stay solid in contrasting conditions and temperatures. The tonal qualities of the Mahogany will offer some low-end warmth, making this a full-bodied and balanced-sounding instrument.

Electronics

The AS83-STE sports a pair of medium-output Super 58 humbuckers, pickups that really lend themselves to jazz, blues and even rock. With Alnico magnets, these pickups have a pure and clear quality, with a rounded tone that's perfect for jazzy chords. Add some overdrive, and you'll achieve an incredibly smooth lead tone with the neck humbucker, and a bright sound with the bridge humbucker.
