Using the classic maple body and mahogany neck combination, the AS53 gives you the semi-hollow sound you want. No more having to get used to oversized and uncomfortable guitars for great tone. The Ibanez AS53 is the perfect culmination of tone and size.
Ibanez designed the AS53's Infinity R pickups to give you warm and well-balanced tone. They really bring out the depth and tonal complexity in the AS53's all sapele body. At the same time, Infinity R pickups do an amazing job suppressing noise and reducing the feedback that tends to plague semi-hollowbody guitars.
