Ibanez Artstar AS153 Antique Yellow Sunburst (AYS)

$999.99 $1377.76



The parallel histories of Jazz music and hollow-body electric guitars have been manifested in the Artstar. The influences of these legendary instruments are immediately apparent with bone nut, ebony fretboard, and Ibanez's signature Super 58 custom pickups. The critical eye will appreciate the details like the smoothness of the fretboard and a skilled crimping technique generally found on instruments costing twice as much. The Artstar is a pure jazz-box that embodies the continual innovation that is Jazz.

Gibraltar Artist Bridge
The Gibraltar Artist bridge, made of a light weight Aluminum bridge frame and Zinc saddles, provides natural tone, rich sustain and tuning stability. The low positioned saddles promise comfortable playability.

Bone Nut
The Bone nut provides richer tone from low to high.

Quik Change III Tailpiece
The Quik Change III tailpiece enables faster and easier string changing.

Sure Grip III Control Knobs
The Sure Grip III knobs are designed for precise control with nonslip functionality, along with smooth and classic looks.

Ebony Fretboard w/Artstar Fret Edge Treatment
Ebony produces a tight low and mid range with an iconic attack on the high end. It also features a quick response and rich sustain.

Super 58 Pickups
The Super 58 pickups deliver the smooth, nuanced tones and the biting growl of blues.

G&L ASAT Classic Bluesboy 3-Tone Sunburst - USA



ASAT Classic Bluesboy

Our Perspective:
This Bluesboy was custom spec'd by George's Music Center to capture the excitement of a slightly modified T-Style guitar of the 60's. But of course we kept the playability of a modern day guitar. It sports a 9.5" radius and medium-jumbo frets and a great neck profile. The pick-ups are a perfect marriage, a G&L ASAT bridge pick-up and a Seymour Duncan Seth Lover mounted in a "Green Guard"…another 60's appointment!! The 3-Tone Sunburst finish, green-guard, White binding and rosewood fingerboard is a combination that will inspire just about any fan of the T-Style guitar.

Weighing in at: 8.6 LBS.

The G&L ASAT® Classic Bluesboy™ is a factory-modded version of Leo’s final word on the traditional single-cutaway bolt-on axe. For players looking for the unmistakable warmth of a classic humbucker in the neck position, the Bluesboy delivers with a well-balanced pairing of a Seymour Duncan Seth Lover alnico humbucker and a single-coil G&L Magnetic Field Design™ bridge pickup designed by Leo Fender†. Framed in a classic boxed-steel bridge, the single-coil MFD™ bridge pickup delivers crisp attack with complex harmonics while individual brass saddles offer modern levels of intonation refinement. Flip to the neck ‘bucker and you’ll discover all the charismatic warmth you could ask for. Put ‘em together and you’ll find yourself immersed in exploring the limits of this guitar’s surprising versatility.

The Bluesboy’s hard-rock maple neck features an easy-playing satin finish, comfortable 9 1/2" radius and Jescar 57110 medium-jumbo nickel-silver frets for silky playability. The moment you open the luxurious hardshell case, you’ll be greeted with a stunning instrument and delicious aroma that’ll have your pulse racing.
