For a decade now, Ibanez has energized the hollow-body segment with a wide range of designs, from rockin’ hybrids to straight-up jazz-boxes. Built with tone woods selected for their beauty as well as their musicality, the Artcore line covers the wide range of styles for which Ibanez hollow and semi-hollow bodies are known.
The AM53 features a Sapele top, back and sides in resonant transparent flat finish. The fretboard is rich Laurel contrasted by white dot inlays, set to a slim set-in neck that has proven its reliability on thousands of Ibanez hollow and semi-hollow bodies throughout the years. Infinity R pickups feature warm, balanced articulation and excellent response for various music 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.
