Ibanez Artcore AS73 TBS Reviews 5

Got this one on E-Bay for only $250.00. I was looking at the Gibson ES 175 and the like. I didn't think much of the Epiphone. I took a chance, the seller said it was played very little. I bought it only from the photo, it looked beautiful.

I was so impressed with the QUALITY of the construction, the binding and the finish was outstanding. It plays like a dream, jazz, rock, and blues, it sounds great. A great value, its a steal in my opinon, even if you paid $200.00 more.

Maybe its just me, but it really needs a pickguard to save that finish.

High quality, and it sounds great.

Again I think it makes a mockery of the Epiphone and you REALLY got to want the Gibsons. Otherwise save your $$ for your amp.
