Excerpt: Nice, deep, rich sound! Can go from pearly clean to a tasty overdrive to a snarling beast and sound great in all modes. Sustains nicely. The only thing that could make it better would be to throw in a coil splitter to add some single coil sheen, but I'd rather keep it as is to maintain the incredible price. Very happy with the tone and character of this axe. Great job Ibanez!
Excerpt: Sound is clean, the electronics are good, the pickups sound well balanced and the volume and tone controls have a smooth even tapering. The guitar weighs about 8 and a half pounds, the action out of the box was high and it needed an adjustment. The neck is perfectly straight. The bridge and stop tail hardware is heavy duty. The tuners could have been better but seem to stay in tune.
Summary: The Ibanez Artcore AS93 is a very nice guitar for the money. It is very well made inside and out. It looks a lot better in real life, the photo does not do it justice. It was set up just the way I like it and the frets are really smooth. The humbuckers have a very warm tone. Very nice for blues, jazz And rock. I use a tube amp. with this guitar and that helps out a lot.
Excerpt: This is a nice guitar with good clean sound that rivals more expensive brands sound, playability and looks. I use a Digitech 350 multi-effect pedal with this beauty and it rocks! From clean soft jazz to sustain to die for ... this guitar is a great value for your buck.
Summary: Bought the Ibanez AS93 as an additional guitar to my Gibson Les Paul and my Hamer as I wanted a hollow body instrument. After some research I decided on this model of Ibanez and have been very, NO exceptionally pleased with it. Andertons staff couldn't have been more helpful.
