For those who like the feel and tone of a hollow body, but need more volume and sustain than a hollow box allows, the AS253BM is just your ticket. As part of the Artstar Series, the AS253BM is a high-quality instrument for the working pro playing jazz, blues, rock, country, or any hybrid genre you can imagine.
The burled maple body is done in a rich Transparent Cherry finish. The 3-piece mahogany/maple set-in neck has a bound ebony fingerboard with acrylic/abalone block inlay, medium frets and the Artstar Fret Edge Treatment, for a fast, smooth feel.
For extended tone options the AS253BM comes with two Super 58 pickups and a Tri-Sound switch for the neck pickup that allows you to select Humbucker in series (traditional), parallel (brighter, single coil type tone w/ lower output and hum cancellation) or coil-tapping for a single-coil sound. ART-1 bridge provides improved sustain and tuning stability. Features gold hardware and includes a hardshell case.
