  • Description

    The Top, Back and Sides of the AS153 are crafted with the finest Flamed Maple which enables it to produce bright, pronounced tones while maintaining that tight low end.  The 15 ¾'' semi-hollow body of the AS153 is capable of producing rich and complex tones and allows each and every note to resonate beautifully. The AS153 also houses a sustain block for increased sustain and eliminates any feedback that may occur when amplifying a semi-hollow/hollow instrument. The double cutaway design offers increased accessibility to the higher registers on the neck. The maximum body thickness is 2 5/8'' for optimal tone and resonance. The AS153 features your choice of an Antique Amber or Antique Yellow Sunburst finish that allows the Flamed Maple to really show through it.

    The Artstar AS slim, set-in, 3 piece Mahogany/Maple neck features a bound Ebony fingerboard topped with 22 medium frets which gives this guitar its outstanding playability and will provide you with the utmost comfort. The fingerboard also features Pearl/Abalone block inlays which cater to the AS153's elegant appearance. To further accentuate it's exquisite looks and overall performance, this guitar features all gold hardware including gold tuning machines and a gold ART1 bridge that will help keep this guitar perfectly in tune.

    The AS153 boasts dual Super 58 Custom bridge and neck pickups that deliver warm, buttery tones with great articulation and a quick response. Because these pickups are so incredibly versatile, they're capable of achieving excellent tones anywhere from clean, smooth jazz all the way to dirty, over-driven blues. Switch between the bridge and the neck or combine them with the on board toggle switch, then tailor your tone even further with each pickups designated tone and volume controls. The neck pickup also features Ibanez's Tri-Sound Switch which further enhances flexibility, taking you from one tonal character to another, on the fly.

    A durable hardshell case is included with your purchase of the AS153 for the ultimate protection.
