The AS73G is an Artcore series hollow body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 2016. It was originally produced in China, but since 2017 production has moved to Indonesia; Chinese production ceased in 2018.
The AS73G 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 acrylic block position markers. Components include a pair of Ibanez Classic Elite humbucking pickups with gold covers and individual volume and tone controls, a Tune-o-matic style bridge with a Quik Change tailpiece, a plastic nut, a tortoise shell pickguard, Sure Grip knobs, and Ibanez tuning machines.
For 2018 the rosewood fretboard was replaced in some markets with treated New Zealand pine. For 2019 the maple body construction changed to linden, the mahogany neck was replaced with nyatoh, and the rosewood fretboard was replaced with laurel. For 2020 the fretboard was again changed, this time to walnut, and the bridge was replaced with the new Gibraltar Performer.
