Built to tackle just about any genre of music.

The Ibanez AS53 semi-hollowbody electric guitar provides full, resonant tone and modern sound at an affordable price. Its compact sapele body offers the warmth and punch of a traditional semi-hollow guitar in a size comfortable for any player. The AS53's fast nyatoh neck and 12" fingerboard radius facilitate nimble fretting and chording, while its dual Infinity R humbucker pickups deliver a range of tones from sparkling highs to rich, snarling lows. Available in an eye-catching Tobacco Sunburst finish, the AS53 is a versatile, gig-ready guitar for musicians of all genres.

Compact Body, Full Sound

While the AS53 has the appearance of a classic semi-hollowbody, its highly resonant sapele body is sized like a traditional solid body guitar, providing maximum comfort and reducing feedback. The AS53's compact form factor allows for effortless high fret access and makes the guitar suitable for musicians of all body types. Despite its smaller size, the AS53 projects the full, complex tone that semi-hollow body guitars are known for.

Smooth Neck, Fast Fretting

The AS53's nyatoh neck and 12" radius walnut fingerboard provide a familiar feel for both solidbody and hollowbody players. Its medium frets and moderate neck profile facilitate speedy fretting and bending. The AS53's neck construction and fingerboard radius make navigating the fretboard fluid and intuitive.

Dual Humbuckers, Diverse Tones

The AS53's dual Infinity R ceramic humbucker pickups deliver a range of vintage and modern tones. The neck pickup provides warm, creamy tone ideal for jazz and blues, while the hot bridge pickup yields snarling lows and crisp highs suitable for rock and fusion. A 3-way toggle switch allows for single coil-like tones in the center position. Overall, the Infinity R pickups offer exceptional tonal versatility for any musical style.

Additional Features

The AS53 comes equipped with high-quality hardware for solid tuning stability and sustain, including a Gibraltar Performer bridge and Quik Change III tailpiece. Its open-gear tuners provide smooth, accurate tuning. A synthetic bone nut and plastic control knobs round out the guitar's traditional aesthetic.
