Ibanez AM73 BK Artcore Semi-Hollowbody, Black

Smaller-bodied, so great for players not wanting to be weighed down.

The Ibanez AM73-BK Artcore Electric Guitar in Black combines the rich tonal complexity of a semi-hollowbody with the power and sustain of a solidbody. Whether you're taking your first steps into the world of guitar playing, or are a professional with many years’ experience, the AM73-BK will have you falling in love in no time. A heady combination of sublime tones, comfortable playing feel, and sophisticated style, it is an outstanding model that is offered at a generously affordable price.

 

Semi-hollowbody Design

The AM73-BK is built using a lightweight, semi-hollowbody design that benefits from smaller dimensions than other models. Thanks to this, the AM73 is a delight to perform with, and those who like to move freely on stage, unencumbered by a weighty or unwieldy instrument, are going to love performing with it. The chambered body is built using maple, which resonates freely and creates a warm output that is infused with a brilliant clarity. The f-holes in the top yield a sweet acoustic response, whilst the sound produced from within is translated faithfully by the pickups.

 

Artcore Mahogany Set-in Neck

Ibanez has employed a set-in construction for the neck joint, giving the mahogany a reassuringly sturdy feel in the hand. The joint also maximises sound transference from the neck to the body for greater sustain. Married to the neck is a bound rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 22 medium frets that are adorned with white dot position inlays. The fingerboard binding guarantees that transitions between frets are as seamless as can be, allowing you to guide along with effortless grace. Not only that, but thanks to the double-cutaway body profile, the upper frets can be reached with ease.

 

Classic Elite Humbuckers

The AM73-BK is equipped with a pair of Classic Elite humbuckers, which are fitted in the neck and bridge positions respectively. The pickup combination can be applied to a wide variety of musical styles, from rockabilly to jazz - and everything in-between. Control comes in the form of a 3-way pickup selector switch, a master volume pot and a master tone pot. From thick and creamy tones produced by the neck pickups, to the direct and punchy mids of the bridge, or a combination of both, you are equipped to hit the stage or the studio with a huge tonal arsenal.


Gig-Ready Hardware

Fitted to the body of the AM73-BK is the winning partnership of an ART-1 bridge and a Quik Change III tailpiece. Adjustment can be made with minimum fuss to achieve the action that is right for you, whilst optimising intonation and sustain. The headstock is home to resilient chrome finished tuning machines that maintain string tension and tuning stability with absolute precision, allowing you to play as enthusiastically as you wish.
