- This Guitar Does Not Come with a Bag or a Case
For a decade now, Ibanez has energised hollow-body guitar fans with a wide range of designs - from rockin’ hybrids to straight-up jazz-boxes. With the introduction of its new Expressionist line, Ibanez has begun yet another chapter in the story of its acclaimed Artstar series.
Built with tone woods selected for their beauty as well as their musicality, the Expressionist models are perfect for a wide range of styles, from jazz and blues to rock and folk.
The AM93ME features a Macassar Ebony top, back and sides; clean, handsome white binding on the body, headstock and fingerboard and expertly crafted set-in neck construction to ensure maximum resonance. The rich Ebony fingerboard, with contrasting white block inlays, sits on a 3-piece Nyatoh/Maple set-in neck that has proven its reliability on thousands of Ibanez hollow and semi-hollow bodies throughout the years.
Jazz fans will recognise the original Ibanez Super 58 pickups - the preferred pickup of George Benson, Pat Metheny, and John Scofield for their own Signature models. Super 58 pickups, known for their warm, balanced articulation and excellent response, are equally effective in a variety of genres.

Here at Easy Music Center, we care for our instruments from the moment they arrive to when they ship to your door. All instruments are stored in a climate controlled environment and put through a 12 point inspection checklist before being shipped.
First, we check the finish of the instrument, carefully inspecting any blemishes on the surface. Next, we check the playability and setup by inspecting and adjusting the truss rod (if available), bridge, nut, and frets. If the instrument has electronics, we test all of the electronic components to make sure they are functioning properly.
After a thorough inspection, we then move on to maintenance. We start by lubricating any moving parts on the instrument, such as tuning machines. We then move on to cleaning and oiling the fretboard along with the frets.
Once maintenance is done, we stretch and tune the strings and play test the instrument. After this, we do a final inspection and clean/detail the instrument before packing it up for shipment.
We’re excited to be a part of your instrument buying experience.
