Seductive natural flame maple top.

The Ibanez AS103 Artcore Guitar offers semi-hollow sustain, power, and feedback resistance. Flamed maple on the top back and sides provides beauty and clear tone. A 5-piece Artcore custom set-in neck increases sustain and strength. Two Ibanez Custom 58 pickups have a full, versatile output great for rhythm and lead. Artcore Custom inlays and gold hardware complete the elegant package.

Players, music store owners and the music industry press were stunned by the debut of the affordable Ibanez Artcore guitars in 2002. That still didn't prepare them for the unveiling of the Artcore Customs in 2005. These are truly exquisite guitars that offer patrician specs and tones at plebeian prices. The question "How do you do it?" is still being asked.

335 GAS No More!!!


from Garden Grove, CA

Comments about Ibanez AS103 Artcore Custom Series Semi-Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

You won't find a better performing, production line semi-hollow anywhere else for the price!!! The AS103 is definitely Custom Shop Quality!!! 100% playable right out of the box - action is just right and neck is fast and thin like a 60's style on the Gibson 335's. The construction and cosmetic quality are absolutely flawless (no exaggeration. The frets are immaculately dressed and all the parts are screwed on straight and tight). The tuners, pots, etc. are all usable. This guitar plays acoustically loud unplugged and sustains very, very well. I'm liking this semi-hollow more and more, every time I pick it up. The D'addario 10's were okay, but stringed her up with Ernie Ball 11's and that took her voice to another level. Just getting used to the pickups (not as hot as Gibson '57s) and I think there's a reason for that. Turn up the amp a little and the clear and woody tones are captured beautifully. The product photo does not do this guitar justice. In person, the guitar looks 100 times better! If you want to find a guitar that will out perform this one, you will have to pay the $3,000 price tag...but don't count on that as a guarantee.
