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.

This Guitar is AMAZING... simply put.

By Trevor Adams

from Arlington, TX

Comments about Ibanez AM73B Electric Guitar:

I bought this guitar about a year and a half ago. The playability of this guitar is so great. The neck is thin and I havent had one problem with this one yet. I play this guitar more than I play any of the other 3 electric guitars in my collection. If you are looking for a guitar that will last you for a long time, and give you great tone... I highly suggest this one. I love it.

Tone is worth the $

By GuitarLover

from Gilbert,az

Comments about Ibanez AM73B Electric Guitar:

I already own 14 instruments (various bass and guitars) but no semi-hollow and always wanted to take the pludge but never really was that thrilled with others I tried for the price...until now. Ibanez has a winner here and the tones really are sweet. This is the only thing I have been playing lately. I'm a little used to a smaller neck but it brings a lot of character and upper frets are easy to access. The size is very comfortable and can play for hours without the heavy strain (I have minor arthritis and have no issues). For semi-hollows it's all about the tone ..and this is worth every penny. Only complaint is I wish there were a few color styles to choose from. Black is cool but kinda dull. Although I suspect the $ would go up with it the style options so it's not a big deal.

Great Sounds

By Alan McCormack

from San Diego, CA

Comments about Ibanez AM73B Electric Guitar:

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.

Project guitar

By DON RAINVILLE

from Pittsburgh, PA

Comments about Ibanez AM73B Electric Guitar:

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.

Nice semi-hollowbody for the money!

By Tom

from Methuen, ma

Comments about Ibanez AM73B Electric Guitar:

Just purchased the new tobacco flat finish yesterday as a project guitar. Beautiful guitar. I already replaced the knobs with Gibson speed knobs, look great. Purchased Seymour Duncan SH-1 '59 pickups for it too. Wasn't planning on upgrading the tuners, but this baby just will not stay in tune!!! Other than that, it's a great guitar for the money! Easy to adjust neck and action as well. It is made in China, but what isn't these days! Good quality overall for the price, I would certainly recommend this for a semi-hollow body guitar.

You Get What You Pay For

By Jake Beck

from Elmira, NY

Comments about Ibanez AM73B Electric Guitar:

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.

Comments about Ibanez AM73B Electric Guitar:

I purchased the Ibanez AM73B several months ago at the local Guitar Center. As a professional musician (since 1965) I have been playing electric, solid body Fender guitars, Acoustic guitars, and (For the last 20 years) Ovation Acoustic/Electric guitars. I wanted to add a semi-hollow body electric guitar to my line up. After much research I decided on the AM73B, based on sound, playability, looks, and price. Although it is the least expensive guitar I own, it presents a fast neck, the warmest tones, and long sustains (the 1st day I owned it I replaced the factory strings with D'Addario XL115-3D, 11's) this mellowed the sound and got rid of the twang. This is my 1st and only Ibanez guitar and I am extremely pleased with it......KEEP ON ROCKIN' Y'ALL...

Very nice and a real looker

By Paul J.DiBona

from Norwalk CT

Comments about Ibanez AM73B Electric Guitar:

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
