For vibrant hollowbody tone and impressive playability, Sweetwater recommends the Ibanez Artcore Expressionist AS83 semi-hollowbody electric guitar.
There's no substitute for the mellow and naturally resonant sound of an electric guitar with a semi-hollow body. Ibanez built their AS83 semi-hollowbody guitar to capture the jangle and bite of a classic semi-hollowbody, which is why they built it with a maple body. Whether you're playing rockabilly, blues, or any number of modern styles, you're going to love the character the AS83 semi-hollowbody guitar brings to your music.
Early hollowbody and semi-hollowbody electric guitars had a wonderfully expressive tone that came with serious hum issues. That's why Ibanez and other guitar makers quickly developed special humbuckers, such as the Super 58 pickups. These special humbuckers preserve your AS83 semi-hollowbody guitar's bite but ditch the 60Hz hum and other noise. What's more, Super 58 humbuckers give the AS83 a unique sonic character that you're sure to have fun with.
The neck of any guitar has a lot to do with how well it plays. That's why Ibanez selected one of their smoothest and most comfortable necks for the Artcore AS83 semi-hollowbody guitar. Not only will your hand love the slim carve of this 3-piece nyatoh/maple Expressionist neck, but your fingers will also appreciate the beautifully bound ebony fingerboard.
