There’s something enticing about the look of an older, vintage guitar—well worn with battle scars, earned throughout its years of hard use. Much like a vintage leather jacket or rare antique furnishings, it immediately feels comfortable and sets a tone unlike anything brand new, right off the shelf. It’s this idea that inspired the new Ibanez Artcore Vintage Series.
Lurking beneath its aged looking façade and smoky, low gloss finish is a sophisticated semi-hollow that can easily handle almost any musical challenge imaginable. The ASV10A features a select-grade Maple top, back, and sides, and the Artcore Vintage Mahogany set-in neck—a neck that’s proven itself over the years on countless Ibanez guitars. Its bound Rosewood fretboard is inlaid with warm Aged White blocks, and joined to the body at the 17th fret for comfortable access to higher notes.
Mounted into a center block for increased sustain and feedback elimination—Ibanez Classic Elite pickups offer warm, ultra-responsive tone with moderate output that allow the ASV10A to venture well beyond the realm of most semi-hollow guitars. Case sold separately.

Comments about Ibanez Artcore Vintage Series ASV10A Semi-Hollow Body Electric Guitar:
Arrived pretty much in tune. Sounds great unplugged. I've wanted a hollow body for a long while. I don't think you can get much better per dollar.
Fit and finish is amazing. Guitar sounds even better. Forget the Epiphone... Buy this instead!!
*Okay the strings get hung up at the nut a little but not while doing full step bends. I noticed while tuning the guitar to Eb.
*minor buzzing: I haven't even touched the saddles.... I'm sure I made it worse tuning it down half a step.
*frets aren't super smooth but this is my first time really playing a brand mew guitar since 18 years ago.
A minor setup and it'll fool you into thinking its worth twice as much.
