I live and work in Mexico. A year ago, I got a Sam Ash gift card for Christmas. There's no Sam Ash where I live...or even a decent music store. So, I had my Sam Ash gift card burning a hole in my pocket for a year...and couldn't spend it! But, I spent a whole year like a kid looking at a [...] Christmas toy catalog staring at all the goodies and did alot of research and drooling. LOLI finally came to the states for a few days and went straight to the neighborhood store with several guitar models in mind. I played alot of guitars. Some cheaper. Alot of others more expensive. I kept coming back to the Ibanez AS73. I didn't really want a hollow body, but I remembered all the good reviews I had read and for the price, there was nothing that came close. I couldn't put it down! I have other guitars but this AS73 pulls some tones and allows me to do some things that I just couldn't do on my other guitars. Wow...I know I'm just not THAT good! But the AS73 makes me a better player. It's buttery smooth and just a joy to play and I hadn't even thought that a hollow body would be lighter. It's gonna be great onstage![...] I only get to the states once or twice a yaer so it's not like I can bring something back if it's no good. [...] And thanks Ibanez!
