Versatile Sounds from Bright to Dark While smooth and elegant enough for jazz, the AS153 Artstar's tone, when pushed, breaks up nicely. If you want a dark, slightly distorted bluesy tone, or if you want a brighter rock sound that cuts through sharply, your choices are just a few knob turns and switches away. Your tone controls include dual tone and dual volume knobs for each humbucker, and your pickup selector blade gives you three pickup combination settings. The Tri-Sound neck pickup switch gives you even more tonal options to play around with. This Artstar's wider range of tone leaves more room for sonic expression.
Choice Tonewoods: Maple Body and Mahogany/Maple Neck You'll consistently get a rich, warm sound as your playing resonates through this axe's maple top, back, and sides. You can hear your notes sustain well even when you're not plugged in, so practicing silently is still a treat. Your three-piece mahogany/maple neck transfers your playing over to the body thanks to its set-in construction, and this neck not only sounds nice and warm, it feels comfortable to the touch. A bound ebony fingerboard of 22 medium frets expresses your chord changes with ease, sustain, and solid intonation.
Super 58 Custom Humbuckers: All Tone -- No Hum Your pair of Super 58 Custom humbuckers deliver on their promise of bucking the hum. Early semi-hollowbody guitars sometimes carried the dreaded unwanted low-end hum. These humbuckers keep your tone clean, clear, well-defined, and free of unwanted noise. They also give you a sound that's unique and versatile at the same time. Plug these babies in and see all the punch your AS153 Artstar can pack.
