Compact and comfortable body is fun and easy to play
Solidbody players sometimes shy away from semi-hollowbody guitars due to the size even though they want the tone. The Ibanez AS53 crosses that barrier with a smaller body that is comfortable to solidbody players, but is still a true semi-hollowbody guitar. Using a Sapele body and Nyatoh neck combination, the AS53 gives you the semi-hollow sound you want. No more having to get used to oversized and uncomfortable guitars for great tone. The Ibanez AS53 is the perfect culmination of tone and size.
Dual humbuckers deliver warm and creamy tone
Ibanez designed the AS53's Infinity R pickups to give you warm and well-balanced tone. They really bring out the depth and tonal complexity in the AS53's all sapele body. At the same time, Infinity R pickups do an amazing job suppressing noise and reducing the feedback that tends to plague semi-hollowbody guitars.
All of the fat semi-hollow tones you love
Semi-hollowbody guitars are used in most genres of music. The AS53 is great for jazz, rockabilly, and many other styles of music. Don't forget that hollowbodies have also been used in rock 'n' roll, fusion, and even country bands. Get the Ibanez AS53 and start playing with big, fat hollowbody tone today!
