LeoDeo, 25.05.2015
The main selling point here is build quality at a very good price.

I got a 12-02 version rather than the 12-01 I have seen elsewhere. Ibanez is shy about what changes have happened. I think maybe the pups have been changed since they now have no name stamped on them.

The arm and action are fantastic. It is very playable. The ebony fretboard looks nice and dark and the abalone inlays look interesting. It uses 9s for strings which helps. The fret edges are super smooth. The machineheads keep the strings in tune.

The flame maple body is nice but the flaming is a little 'dirty' looking. The binding is very good. The body size is fine for sitting and playing.

The bridge is not to my liking. It is not very well made with the 'gold' plating matted about the screw thread - that should have been binned. The tailpiece seems okay. Likely I will change both for Gotoh pieces.

To the pups. These are fine if you like a bright sound. I prefer the original 335 sound. This is doable with some Gibson Classic 57s or Burstbucker 3s etc (See YT). However, the pups with no name (they are not stamped) sound very pleasing through a Fender Blues Junior III... Maybe that bright maple sound is like a Strat or Tele... I need to explore this. Might sound even better using Gibson pups... Decisions... Options...

The pup options are useful but not essential. Basically the neck pup can be set to parallel, split or normal. Normal sounds loudest. Play with it until you find what you like. I have an Gibson Les Paul Traditional Pro which has split pups options and I rarely use them.

Whatever, for the loot (and the price has dropped since I bought it) this is a very good guitar. Even if you need to spend a bit to get near to the 335 sound. The basic guitar is very well put together and a real bargain.

This guitar is stunning. The best hollow body at its price range.

Features
The guitar is quite flexible. 2 humbuckers with individual tones and volume controls. The neck pickup is connected to a trisound switch, offering parallel, single and series options. It also has a high quality Ebony fretboard.

Sound
The sound is amazing, thanks to its amazing design and craftsmanship. The 2 stock pickups, Super 58 Custom, is the cheap down version of Super 58, but are nevertheless decent. I eventually replaced them with a set of SD and the improvement was not major but noticeable.

Quality
The Ibanez beats all its competitors hands down in this aspect. Besides all signs of great craftsmanship one can ever imagine, the AS153 has the finest fretwork I have ever seen.

I took my time trying to find some flaws/defects to put into the feedback, but I've completely failed. This guitar is as close to perfection as an instrument can ever be.

Please purchase with confidence.
