      Comments about Ibanez Artstar Series AS153 Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar:

      Bought it because I wanted a semi-hollow that could take on jazz, blues and a little rock with some distortion. But it was mostly the jazz and blues sound I wanted. Great sound right out the box. I thought about changing over to flat wounds for more of a warm jazz sound but I find what i'm getting works already with the round wounds it came with. If you are looking for a semi-hollow you should chick this out. The neck has a Gibson-Epiphone feel which I love.
