    Ibanez Artcore semi-hollow opinions

    A friend just picked up a AS53. He is raving about it. I haven't seen it other than pics. Looks very handsome.

    Opinions on the guitar? Are you getting a lot of guitar for little dollars? Ibanez makes a whole series of these Artcores. The AS73 in Amber caught my eye.

    Thanks in advance

    I've got an AS73. Surprisingly nice semi-hollow. I may swap out the pups at some point, but the stocks really aren't bad.

    My brother gave me one when they first came out, surprisingly nice. I modded mine a bit, but even stock they are nice. I'd say the weak point are the electronics, especially the output jack, which was the first thing l replaced. Overall I prefer the Ibanez over the Epiphone semi hollow offerings.
