The Ibanez Artcore’s combination of quality workmanship and affordability has cultivated legions of fans from a diverse range of genres such as blues, country, rock and jazz.

The back body of the AS53-TKF has been crafted from Mahogany while the top is made from Sapele. The neck is an Artcore AS set-in neck and is made from Mahogany featuring a bound Rosewood fretboard with white dot inlay and comfortable medium sized frets.
The Artcore is highly respected for its tone, sustain and ability to hold its tuning and the semi-hollow bodied construction of the AS53-TKF eliminates feedback intrusion.
Built for functionality and playability, the no-frills approach to the AS53 means that it brings the experience of a semi-acoustic guitar to a wider audience. Such a good quality semi-acoustic guitar at this price point is an absolute bargain!
