Vintage beauty

The Ibanez AS253BM-TCR Artstar Electric Guitar features a semi-hollow construction with a classic finish. Smooth Jazz, bright country rock and dirty blues tones can all easily be achieved by this remarkable guitar.


Beautiful to the bone

The foundation of the superb tone that emanates from the AS253BM-TCR Artstar comes from the hollowbody that has been constructed using burl maple for the top, back and sides. A sustain block is used to mount the pickups so you can be sure of less feedback and more sustain. The top contains "f" holes as well as a matte black pickguard making it look classically smart.

Ibanez have used a 3-piece maple and mahogany neck for the AS253BM-TCR Artstar and as you can expect from Ibanez, the playing experience is incredibly fluid. An ebony fingerboard plays home to the 22 frets and stunning customised block positional inlays.

Smooth tones

Equipped with a pair of Super 58 humbuckers, the AS253BM-TCR Artstar means business! The huge sound can be tweaked thanks to the independent volume and tone controls for each pickup as well as a 3-way pickup switch. To further open up your tone, the AS253BM-TCR Artstar has a tri-sound neck pickup switch to alter the characteristics of the sound! Switch instantly for your wailing solo's or fat rhythm parts with ease.

Other key features of the Ibanez AS253BM-TCR Artstar include a bone nut and a ART-1 bridge with Quik Change III tailpiece for incredible sustain. This guitar oozes vintage personality and it will serve you well throughout the years. Seldom do you find a guitar with all of these features at this price, grab yourself a classic in the making from one of the best guitar manufacturers in the world.
