The Ibanez ASV93 Artcore Vintage 2018, Tri Fade Burst brings a beautifully vintage twist to the Artcore hollowbody, featuring a classic sunburst finish, antique chrome hardware, and aged white block inlays to create a truly classic feel. Its incredibly resonant body is created from maple, offering a beautifully bright tone with plenty of projection and low-end response. The 3-piece maple and mahogany neck is coupled with a bound ebony fingerboard, offering incredible comfort and a smooth performance across the entire fingerboard. The set of Super 58 humbuckers provide the Ibanez with its beautiful vintage tones, offering a perfect blend of warmth, balanced articulation, and response. The ASV93 Artcore Vintage is also equipped with an ART-1 bridge and Quik Change III tailpiece, delivering incredible string stability with a quick and easy string change.

Comfortable Maple Archtop Body

Constructed from an all maple body, the Artcore guitar produces a focused tone with an impressive sustain and character. With a clear, defined upper midsection and a high-end sparkle, the maple body delivers a balanced low-end response ideal for chiming chords and super bright lead patterns. For added acoustic projection, a duo of classic 'F' sound holes are also featured on the maple soundboard, providing a classic look which many guitarists associate with the 1950s.

Smooth 3-Piece Neck & Ebony Fingerboard

As well as proving a resonant body with comfortable contours, a three-piece mahogany/maple neck is also incorporated for added comfort and delivering an enhanced tone. The three-piece neck is mounted with a bound ebony fingerboard and features stunning aged white block inlays. Ebony is a great choice for fingerboards, as its natural smoothness reduces finger fatigue ideal for fast playing styles, and provides the perfect platform for percussive styles such as tapping or hammer-ons.

Super 58 Pickups

The Ibanez ASV93 delivers beautiful tones perfect for jazz fans, with its choice of incredible Super 58 pickups which have been used by artists like George Benson, Pat Metheny, and John Scofield. This vintage choice of pickup delivers warm, balanced articulation, an excellent response, and a perfect tone for jazz guitarists. These pickups are capable of delivering a 'jazz clean' tone, as well as 'blues-dirty' for a versatile performance.

ART-1 Bridge & Quik Change III Tailpiece

The Artcore Vintage features the ART-1 bridge and Quik Change III tailpiece combination in a stunning antique chrome finish, creating a beautifully modern yet old appearance to complement the guitar’s aesthetics. While the bridge helps improve the strings sustain and tuning stability, the tailpiece allows for a faster and easier string change than standard bridges.
