Photo & Playability online don't do this guitar justice.


from NWOhio

It was on sale. The first day I received it and played it through the new Fender DEC I was Shocked and Awed. I got it through Music 123 I still need to resolve some surface scratches, but they're not bad enough that I would return it--it plays so much easier than an SG Standard I had.

from South Carolina

Before I bought this guitar, I had a Mexican standard Fender Telecaster. That was good....until I bought the AM73. Well, I have the AM73T, which is the same thing but with the vintage tremolo piece. It is a masterpiece. The first few shows I've had with it were amazing. The 2 Humbuckers give it such a crisp crunchy sound, wether you're playing acoustic or soft rock, or even punk and metal like I am. The tremolo piece adds a lot of sustain to it. For a hollowbody, the body in general is great too, because it's really thin. The neck is smooth which allows me to slide up and down the frets in record time haha. My advice, for any musician: This is the guitar to buy!!!

Great Guitar!


from Philadelphia, PA USA

This guitar is awesome! I was never and still am not into the semi-hollow body guitars until I picked this guitar up in a store and stated playing it, this guitar is outstanding especially for the price of the guitar. Another thing is you can basically play any type of music and it will sound great on this guitar.

Awesome low-budget experience


from RSA

A very good, easy-playing, quality guitar at an incredible price. Manufacturing with plastic replacing the pricey stuff really adds value-for-money with a great sound. Any intermediate guitarist should have one of these!

Ibanez AM73 is an incredible value!


from Montana

This is a superb instrument for a great price. I play it in small gigs through a small, solid-state Vos amp. I play blues and classic rock, and this is such a great guitar for both. I love the size and weight of this guitar!! It's light and very easy to play. The finish is excellent. The transparent brown is so rich and dark that it looks black in low light. With the cream colored binding it is simply gorgeous and still tastefully understated. My one and only criticism is that the frets feel a bit rough, but if they've got to keep costs down somewhere, I'd rather that they leave out a few finishing details like polishing frets than skimp on components and overall quality.

My Favorite Guitar


from Clovis, CA

I have several guitars (acoustic and electric) covering a wide price range. This Ibanez is my favorite. Somehow, it seems to bring out the best in me; it feels the best and I play the best on it. You can also get a very wide range of tones out of it. I can't find a single thing I don't like about it. The finish is beautiful.

Frets could be wide or medium


from NJ

This a fine guitar. Pickup's are very good. Workmanship is great at this price, I've seen 335's that are not much better in workmanship (maybe better woods and pickup's)

Great Value


from Ontario, Canada

I started with a Squire strat and I decided I wanted to buy a better guitar I saved up $1000 CAD ($600 USD) and went shopping. I played several and I found that this guitar had the best feel for me and a great sound. They only had it in blue and that nearly put me off buying the guitar, but the sound and feel sold me anyway. Now that I have had it for approximately 2 years, I find the blue to be a great look for this guitar. Best of all, it was on sale for $500 CAD ($375 USD). I would have paid half again as much and still been happy.

Beautiful Sound,Feel & Looks


from OHIO, U.S.A.

I still can't believe this one sells this cheaply. Made over seas but still I think will stand with any $1500 USA guitar. The dark brown stain and finish is perfect(almost a black unless a lot of light is on it). You could play about any thing on it. Only thing I had to do for setup was lower the pickups. It has the tones I was looking for(or as close as I can get without a tube amp). Very nice set neck and well built. Only things I'd complain about is the nut is just a hair too high for me and the Artcore symbol just doesn't look right on a guitar that looks this good. I won't complain at this price.

I was surprised


from St. Louis, MO

I was in a local store picking up a new delay pedal when I spotted this little jewel on display. Just for grins I plugged it in through an all tube Fender to try it out. What can you get for around $300? Let me tell you that this semi-hollow body Ibanez gave a ton more than I ever expected. I've got a Fender Strat & Gibson SG but in my older years I'm playing much more blues/jazz type stuff so a hollow body was on my wish list just to add another toy to my growing collection in the basement. Wow! I was amazed at the soft mellow tone it gave. The strings seemed to hover just above the fretboard that begged to be played. The neck was a bit slimmer than I like but in about a minute I completely forgot that. I switched over to a dirty channel and this Ibanez growled with the best of them. Now the bite didn't match the SG but you don't play this inexpensive guy this way. A quick 2 minute spin around the block expanded into a half hour workout.
