The AS73B is an Artcore series hollow body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in mid-2007. It was produced in China.
The AS73B features a double-cutaway, semi-hollow body design with an arched laminated maple top with ƒ holes and ivory multi-binding on maple back and sides mated to a set-in mahogany neck with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with ivory binding and pearl dot position markers. Components include a pair of Ibanez Artcore humbucking pickups with individual volume and tone controls, a Tune-o-matic style bridge with a Quik Change tailpiece, a plastic nut, speed knobs, and Ibanez tuning machines.
For 2008 the ivory plastic nut was changed to black plastic. For 2011 the speed knobs were replaced with Sure Grip III knobs.
The AS73 is a similar model with chrome pickup covers. The AS73G is a related model with gold hardware. The AS73FM is a related model with a flamed maple top.
