Jazzers take note, the AS153B offers everything you expect from a great semi-acoustic. Traditional tones for sure but the Super 58 pickups allow for things to easily be cranked up for rock, blues and country. Premium appointments and hardware mean it's ideal for guitarists who are ready to take things seriously, at a price that might surprise.

Uncompromising semi-acoustic tone, the latest Artstar guitars continue the fine tradition

The parallel histories of Jazz music and hollow-body electric guitars have been manifested in the Artstar. The influences of these legendary instruments are immediately apparent with bone nut, ebony fretboard, and Ibanez’s signature Super 58 custom pickups. The critical eye will appreciate the details like the smoothness of the fretboard and a skilled crimping technique generally found on instruments costing twice as much. The Artstar is a pure jazz-box that embodies the continual innovation that is Jazz.

Ibanez Electric Guitars 2016 This year sees the return of the RGA design in both the Iron Label range and Jake Bowen signature guitars, slick looks and mighty sounds aplenty. The new Talman Prestige guitars offer something a little different for Ibanez, with a really classic look and sound, perfect for rockers and blues players. Semi-acoustic players are similarly spoiled with affordable relic finishes and an update to the popular George Benson signature, Japanese crafted & fitted with specially designed pickups.
