Electric Guitar

In the 1970s, the Japanese company Ibanez built cheap yet at the same time decent copies of the then leading American manufacturers Fender and Gibson. But all that changed and by the early 80s Ibanez began offering up their own models, and now the company can easily keep up in all price categories. Not least because virtuosos such as Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, and Frank Gambale have their favourite guitars made by Ibanez. The brand Ibanez is today often heard in the same breath as its former alumni.

The AS93VLS is a small semi-acoustic with a pretty flamed sycamore top. The back and sides are made of maple, and the neck from mahogany. Here too Ibanez has quite a following, as specifically the semi-models enjoy an excellent reputation in jazzy circles.

Two humbuckers with a medium output transmit the positive acoustic characteristics of the instruments every detail - a great semi for less dollar!

  • Flamed sycamore body
  • 3-Piece set-in mahogany / maple neck
  • 22 Medium frets
  • Rosewood fretboard
  • ART-1 bridge with Quik Change III tailpiece
  • White block inlays
  • Gold hardware
  • Pickups: 2 Super 58 Custom humbuckers
  • Colour: Violin Sunburst

Very nice semi-hollow but slight quality issues let it down

The guitar has a beautiful finish. The violin sunburst with the gold gives a really beautiful look to the guitar.

The sound is superb, I use it mainly for Indie / Britpop jangle sound which is succeeds in greatly. When using the neck pickup, you have a really warm but defined sound.

For jazz and blues I much prefer it over a Les Paul with this having the warmer rounder sound and in an amp cranked up, it can produce a nice rock sound. You don't buy this guitar for metal so don't expect it to perform in that.

Now the buts ..... the frets were not good, they were quite rough and it felt like they had not be properly polished. I have had much cheaper guitars where the frets were dressed from the factory much much better than these were. It required some intensive fret polishing to remove the brittle bumps. Overall this put a dampener on my overall excitement of the guitar.

Overall, very nice guitar, fantastic tone, let down by lack of quality control leaving the factory, which is disappointing having had many Ibanez guitars previously.

So due to the frets I am more leaning to OK than wow!

TonyM, 29.05.2013
Instead of buying the Red Dot I decided to be different.
It looks stunning and everybit a rock and rolling guitar, the gold fittings are really superb. It has nice balance and despite its size it is easy to handle.
The fret board is excellent, big frets with a modern shaped neck, not as chunky as the 60's guitars.
I have it strung with a medium gauge string which allows those BB King bends and reverbs.
I have one slight reservation, which is that I think the pickups are a touch weak on their own, compared to my Gibson and PRS; however, their slightly neutral sound is great for using through an expression peddle or effects. It has a natural resinance that makes playing those old time numbers quite authentic.
It is definately one of my favourite guitars just to sit and practice with.
