Lovies Guitars is excited to present this Ibanez AS-2000 Artstar Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar with a Brown Sunburst Finish! The Artstar AS2000 combines the look and sound of a vintage semi-hollow with the modern feel that only Ibanez can achieve. The eye-popping figured anigre top, back, and sides provide a strong fundamental tone. There are plenty of tones to explore, thanks to Super 58 humbucking pickups and Tri-sound switching. The silky-smooth neck is made from mahogany with a stout piece of specially treated maple in the middle. You’ll appreciate the incredibly comfortable playing experience provided by the ebony fingerboard and Prestige fret end treatment. From its feel and tone to its features and aesthetics, the Ibanez Artstar AS2000 semi-hollowbody electric guitar is sure to impress in every way.
The Artstar AS2000 has a vintage voice, courtesy of the two Super 58 humbuckers. The Alnico III magnets and winding technique yield a vintage-style sound that sounds like the semi-hollows of yore. And for an extra helping of sustain, the pickups are mounted directly in the center block. Your AS2000 is equipped with a Tri-sound switch to unlock three different pickup “voices.” The Super 58 humbuckers can be used in series, parallel, and single-coil operation, opening the door for you to explore an entire universe of sounds.
The figured anigre top, back, and sides of the AS2000 grab the eye instantly. But this guitar isn’t just a beauty. The semi-hollow body has a thick sound block that resists any tendency toward feedback. While most semi-hollows absolutely wail at higher volumes, it’s easy to keep the AS2000 smooth and velvety at high volumes. Plus, to provide the definition you need, Ibanez uses a bone nut. Combined with two Super 58 humbucking pickups, the AS2000 will dial in an expressive, rich tone.
When you take your AS2000 for your first test drive, you’ll be astonished by its neck. The AS Artstar neck carve leaves just enough wood between your fingers for an old-school feel with performance fit for a new-school axe. The neck doesn’t just feel like silk to play; it’s strong, too. The neck’s maple ply is treated with Ibanez’s S-Tech wood-roasting technique to relieve weight and increase stability in the same process. This guitar is in excellent shape with pickguard marks and some micro marks, rated at 9.5/10. All original and free from any breaks, cracks or repairs. Included with is an Original Hard-Shell Case and a complimentary sample of Fret-Not, our preferred fretboard cleaner, check it out at fretnot.net!
