Ibanez AS153 AYS Artstar - Antique Yellow Sunburst
The Ibanez AS153 AYS Artstar, finished in Antique Yellow Sunburst, is part of the Artstar range. The AS is a semi-acoustic guitar built to tackle just about any genre of music you throw at it. The pickups are mounted into a sustain block for increased sustain and feedback elimination. Artstar guitars are highly respected for their tone, sustain, tuning stability, general reliability and durability, as well as the way in which the series continues to push the boundaries of guitar building.
The AS153's 3pc Nyatoh/Maple Neck provides a rich mid-low end, which matches nicely with the Macassar Ebony fretboard that features tight lows and mid range, powerful attack in the highs, and quick response with rich sustain. Combined with medium frets with Artstar fret edge treatment, the AS153 is a player's dream, offering hours of comfortable playability and smooth performance. A Flamed Maple top, with Flamed Maple back and sides, not only lends the AS113 an exotic appearance, but provides an excellent tonal foundation for a pair of Super 58 pickups with Tri-Sound switching. With moderate output and vintage tone, Super 58 humbuckers excel across genres. The tri-sound switching on the neck pickup adds even greater versatility to these pickups, allowing for parallel as well as split-coil options at the flick of a switch. A Gibraltar Artist bridge provides rich sustain and tuning stability as well as comfortable playability, while a Quik Change III tailpiece enables faster and easier string changing.
At Riffs & Licks Music, we think the Ibanez AS153 AYS Artstar, finished in Antique Yellow Sunburst, is a great option for anyone looking for a reliable workhorse hollow-body, with a head-turning aesthetic and versatile pickups, at an affordable price.
