  • Beautiful!

    As reviewed by Tony on 6/1/2010

    As I have a few different guitars, I decided on a hollow or semi-hollow, for my next purchase. The Joe Pass, is a very nice piece, loved the casino's and sheridens. BUT, looks, versitility, feel, and of course the great price, I could not pass this one up.I got the blue sunburst w/stoptail bridge. Love, did I say love this guitar. Better than the Epiphones I was considering. Just feels right, and if you like the "Chuck Berry" sound, well look no further, if you like to experiment, this guitar can do just about anything you would like. I don't do the fretboard gymnastics of some heavy metal music, so I am sure this may not be appropiate. If you can at least give this one a try, it is killer!

  • Ibanez Rocks My Blues

    As reviewed by BluesRocker on 2/25/2011

    I've owned and played my AS93 for over two years now. I love this guitar. And the more I play it the better it gets. It has never failed me so it's reliable. It plays like melted butter and sounds awesome through a Fender Blues Jr. NOS amp. A Gibson ES335 or Epiphone Sheraton II ain't got nothin' on this guitar. The neck pickup sounds so sweet for blues soloing it will make your ears weep with joy. I ordered mine sight unseen with confidence because I know the quality of Ibanez Artcore guitars because I already had an AM73TBR when I ordered this one. When it arrived I examined it was flawless. The gold hardware on the Blueburst finish with white binding is stunning. The pickup selector switch is rugged and feels solid. The volume and tone pots turn freely and work very well. Everything was tight. The setup was pretty good and the intonation was spot on right out of the box. It required very little attention to bring it up to my satisfaction. Like I said, I have two Artcores, an AM73TBR (3yrs) and an AS93BLS and both of them are great guitars. Oh sure, the AS93 is a better guitar because it's a deluxe model but they both play and sound awesome. So if you are looking for that semi-hollow vibe then the AS93 is as good as it get for the money. Oh yeah, unless yo have tiny hands, Gibson and Epiphone 335 style guitars have restricted access to frets above the fifteenth, Ibanez Artcores do not.

  • Great Guitar

    As reviewed by Chad Chacchia on 10/18/2013

    I will start out by saying that I have only been playing a little over a year. I will say though that in that year I have developed an obsession and play all the time. I also spend a great deal of time researching both my inspirational artist and how to achieve their tones. That being said, I first looked at Epiphone Casino's, when I decided I wanted a semi hollow body. I personally did not particularly like the feel. I grabbed an Articore, just to compare and I felt the action was much better. The thing felt great. When I started researching their site, I saw the Blue Sunburst and fell in Love with the look. I ordered it without seeing one in person or actually playing an AS model. I must admit I was a bit concerned at that idea. Concerned no more. Out of the box, this guitar is absolutely stunning. Anyone who has seen it has commented on how beautiful it is. Test one, passed with flying colors. Then I plugged it in and was heaven. For clean blues, it sounds fantastic. I had read the output in the pickups was a bit low, so I was concerned how it would sound for rock and fuzz. It sounds awesome for those as well. I play through a Peavy Delta Blues 210 and use a few different effects. I will say I can achieve all the tones I want from Floydish Gilmour sounds (wich was a big pleasant surprise) to Gary Clark Jr. Fuzz. I havent played my strat since I bought it! Bottom line.....This guitar looks great, feels fantastic and sounds fantastic. If something ever happens to it, it will be replaced by another one. It will stay in my collection!
