Ebony Fretboard w/ Artstar Fret Edge Treatment
The Ebony fretboard with Artstar fret edge treatment provides tight response and smooth left-hand fingering.
Here' what Ibanez have to say about the AS153
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.
