With an Ibanez AS83 Semi Acoustic Guitar - Steel Blue amongst the instruments in your arsenal you have guitar designed for semi-hollow lovers that will rival the big boys head on. The Ibanez AS83 represents outstanding quality for your money with a great spec and classy features that you can't ignore.
For the AS83 Ibanez have selected Maple as the tonewood of choice for the double cutaway body, with a centre block running down the middle to reduce unwanted feedback and increase sustain. In somewhat traditional fashion a Mahogany set neck has also been married to the body resulting in a 24.7" scale instrument with a beautiful look and feel.
This model gets the comfortable AS Expressionist neck profile treatment as well as an Ebony fingerboard which has been bound and decorated with stylish block inlays alongside medium sized frets. This 21st century take on a vintage instrument's playing surface brings a new edge to the design and with it provides easy string bends that won't choke out during those intricate blues licks or fat rock solos!
Mounted using a sustain block for less unwanted feedback are a set of Super 58 custom humbucking pickups. This dynamic, responsive duo are designed to offer up a powerful yet versatile sonic arsenal to draw all manner of tones from.
Rounding off this impressive spec list Ibanez have selected gold hardware as standard with this model for a polished, alternative touch. Boasting a hardware package that would rival guitars with a much larger pricetag, AS83 owners can rely on an ART-1 bridge, a QUIK change III tailpiece, sure grip III control knobs and Ibanez's own robust tuners in any playing scenario.
