Price Match

Ibanez’s Artcore series hearkens back to the company’s roots in the ‘70s, when it mostly produced traditional semi-hollow instruments. For 2019, Ibanez has released a number of Artcore models that have a slightly more modern twist, and the AS93ZW-NT strikes the perfect balance between old and new.

Keeping things old-school with its natural finish, acrylic block inlays and stylish gold hardware appointments, this stunning semi-hollow is still versatile enough to suit multiple genres – from jazz to rock.

Construction

Featuring Zebrawood back and sides, the AS93ZW-NT’s top is also made from this gorgeous material. Similar to Mahogany in terms of tone, Zebrawood yields a full sound with dark overtones, projecting a strong mid-range. In conjunction with its semi-hollow design, this instrument has a broad character, giving chords a beautifully open sound.

The AS93ZW-NT’s body is paired with a set 3-piece Nyatoh/Maple neck. Not only keeping the neck super-stable, the Nyatoh injects some extra low-end while Maple adds plenty of bright top-end. Adorned with a bound Ebony fingerboard, this classy-looking material feels smooth under the fingers, with medium-sized frets ensuring excellent playability for both modern and traditional players alike.

Electronics & Hardware

The AS93ZW-NT is fitted with a pair of Ibanez’s acclaimed Super 58 humbuckers. As the pickups of choice for George Benson and Pat Metheny, these humbuckers are known for their warm, expressive and responsive character, lending themselves equally well to both clean and overdriven tones.

Ibanez has also made sure that its hardware is of a similar quality, with its ART-1 bridge and Quik Change III tailpiece keeping things stable. Easily adjustable, you can make effortless string changes and setup tweaks whenever necessary.
