Styled in a transparent cherry red finish, the Ibanez Artcore Expressionist Series AS93FM is a hollow-body electric guitar made from flamed maple for the top, back, and sides. The neck is mostly maple too—with some help from maple's good friend, mahogany. Yes, the mahogany/maple set-in neck gives you more than an apt wood combination; you also get a 24.7" scale and a 22-fret bound-ebony fingerboard with acrylic block inlays that scream vintage.
This hollow double-cutaway guitar delivers a warm, resonant sound that is well suited for playing jazz, funk, blues, and rock: a sound made even more palatable by a pair of Super 58 humbucking pickups—the preferred choice of hepcats such as George Benson, Pat Metheny, and John Scofield. A 3-way pickup selector switch alongside dedicated volume and tone controls for each pickup give you the ability to fine-tune the timbre and volume of each pickup position. The guitar's sustain is enhanced by the ART-1 tune-o-matic style bridge and Quik Change III tailpiece. The latter helping to improve your experience changing strings by cutting down on time.

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 to manufacturer factory specifications. Any request made outside of manufacturer factory specifications can incur additional charges for parts and labor. 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.
