2018 AS83 STE Artcore Expressionist Electric

Product Information

For a decade now, Ibanez has continued to energize the hollow-body segment with wide range of designs-with everything from rockin' hybrids to straight-up jazz-boxes. The new Expressionist line begins yet another chapter in the Artcore story.

The Expressionist difference? Jazz fans will recognize the Ibanez original Super 58 pickups-the preferred pickup of George Benson, Pat Metheny and John Scofield on their own Signature models. A jazz favorite, yes, but as funk guitarist Eric Krasno has been proving, the Super 58s perform well in a variety of situations. Warm, balanced articulation, and excellent response characterize the Super 58 pickups.

The Super 58 pickups deliver the smooth, nuanced tones and the biting growl of blues.

The Sure Grip III knobs are designed for precise control with nonslip functionality, along with smooth and classic looks.
