As evidenced by its long-standing association with such giants of jazz guitar as George Benson, Pat Metheny, and John Scofield, Ibanez has been a constant pioneer in the world of hollow-body guitar building for more than three decades.
Part of that legacy is owed to the Artcore collection, which has succeeded in smashing any and all preconceptions in its wake as to what a great hollow or semi-hollow ought to be. The Artcore formula builds on equal parts luthiery know-how, daring design, and a passion for warm, full-bodied tone.The AS53L is a left-handed version of the Artcore series AS53.
The AS53L features a select-grade Sapele semi-hollow body, a set-in mahogany neck and rosewood fretboard contribute to the warm-sounding characteristics of the AS53L. Ibanez designed the Infinity R pickups to give you big, full tone and well-balanced output. Case sold separately.

Comments about Ibanez Artcore AS53L Left-Handed Electric Guitar:
I love the guitar and its tone, playability and its looks. However, I am disappointed that I had to pay a premium price due to something I have no control over: being left handed. It is 2017. More needs to be done to accomodate left handers. The price should not be passed down to the consumer. Surely Guitar Center can afford to make the price points equal but the manager at my local guitar center refused to honor the store price discount on the righthand since it is considered a "different model guitar".
