    Wife wanted to get me a guitar to celebrate my 50th trip around the sun last month but nobody had these on hand lately. Then an online shop got 4 in, I hemmed and hawed until yesterday and by then they were gone. I looked at my local shops online inventory and one had it, so today I went and picked it up. I liked the 1 volume, 1 tone knob layout much better than 4 knobs on the fancier models. I'll keep it with the stock pickups for a while. They really sound pretty good, but sure I'll swap them out down the road.
    Always wanted a semi-hollow and had played these in the past.

    That’s a beauty! I prefer that volume/tone set-up too. Simple, elegant.

    Nice! I got an Artcore almost 2 months ago. It's a full hollow body with a trapeze and 4 knobs though. Love it.
    Enjoy ypurs to the fullest. HNGD!

    Yeah, it's an ibanez as53. Played it for a while this evening and enjoy it so far. It was set up fairly well, but I had to make a few adjustments. Really need a little mineral oil on the fretboard, and polish the frets, but I'll wait til I change strings.
    Thank you
