Overview

The semi-hollow Ibanez AM73B Electric Guitar is perfect for smaller players, hyperactive stage performers, or anyone else who wants the traditional semi-acoustic elements but not the traditional size. The AM body shape is an original early '80s Ibanez design that incorporates the classic semi-acoustic shape in a more compact and comfortable body size.

You get the full tones, strong sustain, and light weight of a semi-acoustic and the comfortable size and standout rock shape normally associated with a solid-body all in one guitar. Double-cutaway for easy access to upper frets.

Case sold separately.

Always loved the Epi's and Gibsons. Just hated the weight and the necks. I grew up playing fenders so I'm a bit biased. Ibanez always has something I'd lie to have but it doesn't fit my style of playing. Believe it or not, Tele's fit me best. However, I could not help picking one up at Guitar Center Nashville and I almost can't pick my arsenal of tele's up anymore. This is a machine, not hacked piece of rotted river timber. I tried all of the "full" bodied semi hollows and full hollows (after my first 72 thinline, I can't go solid body again) and this felt stronger, better made, lighter, more manageable and the sound was sweeter to me than the epi's and Gibbys. Just got try it. Everything was set-up perfect so I didn't have to change a thing. I highly recommend this guitar for stage and recording. The price is probably the best thing about it. I thrive off of affordable and unique. I don't like high end anything. It's overrated to me. Get this, you shall not be disappointed. Thanks and rock on!

This is a guitar that asks for little and gives little in return. It simply will not stay in tune and the input jack loosens and if you do not retighten it constantly, the nut will fall off. If you get within a foot or so of your amp or are using heavy distortion you will get feedback. With that said, when it is in tune it sounds great and I love it. If you are willing to buy this guitar and some new tuning machines, go for it. However, if you wanted to buy this guitar and have it be everything you wanted right off the bat, I'm sorry but I think you should look into other brands.

My new favorite guitar!

By Joey Barnes

from Independence Missouri

Ok so I've been playing guitar for about 5 years and I had 3 guitars and this made my fourth. I have had this guitar for 5 months and love it. This stays in tune very well and has a great tone. I have the same thing as no hum with these pickups and they are very crisp. I played a few sets at my church with it and I have to say it definitely holds its own weather you need a lot of highs, or need more bass to it, or even something in between, this guitar can do it without a problem.

Project guitar

By DON RAINVILLE

from Pittsburgh, PA

Construction is OK but the hardware is cheap. If you want to spend the money after you buy it on new pick-ups, machines, and pots, buy it. One can spend as much time tuning it as they do actually playing it. If you are a beginner, you certainly will learn how to tune a guitar.

Great Sounds

By Alan McCormack

from San Diego, CA

I already own an Ibanez S520, but it was love at first strum with the AM73B. Like others, I didn't have a couple thousand bucks for a new guitar. For the money, this guitar sounds great. It throws out enough sound to practice in a quiet room without using an amplifier. As reviewers said, it has great tone and sustain. The issue of having to retune after a few minutes is not uncommon. I did, however, get a second hex nut for the output, tightening one against the other slightly, to prevent it from working loose easily.

I love this guitar!

By JOHN HARDIN

from Massachusetts

I have wanted a semi hollow for a while and tried many trying to decide which was the best bang for the buck. Once I tried the AM73, I was sold. Before this, my top choice had been an AS73. I tried many others, an Epiphone Dot, Washburn OE30, Hagstrom Viking II, Peavey JF2, and a Samick RL2. The combination of the great tone, superb finish and neck, and the small size body made it an easy choice. The only other I considered in its class was a Schecter TSH, which was great, but different, and also 200 dollars more. If you are considering a semi hollow, but don't have a huge amount of dough to spend, definitely do not make a decision until you try this guitar.

You Get What You Pay For

By Jake Beck

from Elmira, NY

For the price, this is a great guitar. I absolutely LOVE it-when it's in tune. However, it comes out of tune very quickly. I think I will just buy some new tuning machines and hope that this solves the problem. With that said, this guitar sounds, looks, and feels awesome! Just be prepared to either buy new tuning pegs, or be tuning after every couple of songs.

Love this guitar

By chris fernandez

from athens, tennessee

I wasn't planning on buying a new guitar when I walked in to guitar center recently, but a used artcore grabbed my attention. I played it and really enjoyed it but it was a bit expensive compared to the new ones. So I picked this one up ( tobacco finish) and immediately fell in love. played like butter and the tones were so sweet and the sustain was incredible. The finish was very nice, and while it wasn't the prettiest guitar, it had a charm to it. I played some epiphones and some other model artcores, but this one felt the best in my hands and the neck wasn't too thick ( I own a strat and a tele, I'm not used to very thick necks) The guy helping me out told me i could put some chrome pickup covers on and i could buy them at the accessories department. They were about 11 dollars i think, and they make a world of difference. If you're looking for an affordable semi hollow body, this is the way to go. you won't be disappointed at this price point.

Very nice and a real looker

By Paul J.DiBona

from Norwalk CT

I got the AM73B about 3 weeks ago and I couldn't be more satisfied.I"ve been playing since 1958 and have been playing mostly accoustic country blues including slide guitar. I haven't been able to play for 20 years due to a shoulder injuries to both shoulders as I couldn't wrap my right arm over my Guild D40 N.T. without a whole lot of pain.Had 3 surgeries and they still didn't help,so I started looking for an alternative guitar and saw on the Guitar Center website the Ibanez AM73B which is a little smaller than a traditional semi-hollow body.I went to the store an it was love at first feel.I got the Tobacco one and everyone says what a beautiful guitar.Not heavy,nice action sounds great and it does stay in tune and is well made even though it's made in (yuck) China.So now I'm playing electric blues after dusting off my 1965 Fender Twin.God I really missed playing.Even if you have no health issues I Highly recommend this guitar

One Great Guitar

By john

from Virginia

Ibanez did a great job with this one. I originally was looking at the Artcore AM75. After more research and thought I came accross The Ibanez AM73B. The Price was great. But was worried i wouldnt like it due to none were in stock to try before i bought. I took a leap of faith and ordered it in Tobacco flat color. Trust me when i say that the picture does not give this guitar its just dues. When i got it home and opened the box i was amazed. The tobacco flat color with with trim was fantastic. Very very beautiful guitar. I noticed that the neck was alittle smaller then the AM75 and that was alot better for me. I also liked the smaller size and weight. Its very light. It sounds as good as it looks. I'm relearning the guitar after 30 years and wanted a cheap guitar with great sound. This was perfect. I played a Gibson Les Paul standard when i was younger. I'm very happy and would recomend this to anyone starting out. Also i bought the Am100c guitar case for it which fit perfect.
