AS200-VYS

If you're looking for a top-of-the-line jazz guitar, then you need to check out the Ibanez AS200 Prestige semi-hollowbody electric guitar. 
The flame maple top, back, and sides gives you the note attack and detail you need for your fastest playing to be heard clearly, further enhanced by the fat lows and focused highs from a pair of Super 58 custom humbuckers. A set-in mahogany neck with a bound ebony fingerboard makes the AS200 a pleasure to play. Employing the finest components and exceptional attention to detail, the Ibanez AS200 Prestige is a semi-hollowbody you'll love for a lifetime.

Flame maple body delivers rich sound and great looks
There's no substitute for the mellow and naturally resonant sound of a semi-hollowbody electric guitar. Ibanez built the AS200 Prestige to capture the warmth and punch of a classic semi-hollowbody, which is why they built it with flame maple top, back, and sides. Whether you're playing jazz, blues, or any number of modern styles, you're going to love the character the Japanese-made Ibanez AS200 Prestige semi-hollowbody guitar brings to your music. 
Super 58 Custom humbucking pickups deliver warm, rich tone
Early semi-hollowbody electric guitars had a wonderfully expressive tone that came with serious hum issues. That's why Ibanez and other guitar makers quickly developed humbuckers, such as the Super 58 Custom pickups. These humbuckers preserve your AS200 semi-hollowbody guitar's warmth and punch, but ditch the 60Hz hum. What's more, the Super 58 humbucker gives the AS200 a slight edge that's perfect for bluesy licks. The neck-pickup is controlled by a Tri-Sound switch that lets you choose between series, parallel, or just the outer coil, adding zesty single-coil spank to your tone arsenal.
Fast and smooth neck, with Prestige fret-edge treatment
Ibanez selected one of their smoothest and most comfortable necks for the Artstar AS200 semi-hollowbody guitar. Not only will your hand love the comfortable carve of this mahogany neck, but your fingers will appreciate the beautifully bound ebony fingerboard. For even smoother playability, the AS200 has received Ibanez's Prestige fret-end treatment. This essentially rounds off the edges of the frets, making the AS200's fretboard feel even more fluid.
