The Ibanez AM93ME NT Electric Guitar - Natural High Gloss, is part of the New 2019 range of Artcore Models that Ibanez has released. The AM was an original Ibanez design in the early ''80s. The AM is a natural progression of this design, though smaller in size. This guitar provides infinite playing comfort for smaller players, while holding on to the same light body and abundant sustain that has made the Artcore series so popular. 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. Built with an AM Expressionist 3pc Nyatoh/Maple set-in neck and Macassar Ebony top/Macassar Ebony back & sides with Bound Ebony fretboard with Acrylic block inlay and equiped with Super 58 (H) and Super 58 (H) Pickups, and 2 Volume, 2 Tone, 3-way toggle switch.
