Lightweight Smaller-Sized Body The Am153 Artstar's bubigna semi-hollowbody is compact like a solidbody, which is great if you're not used to the larger style of most semi-hollowbody guitars. Its well-balanced lightweight composition makes it a comfortable fit if you're in for a long gig or recording session. The comfortable three-piece set-in mahogany/maple neck is great for speedy licks and finger-stretching jazz chords.
Two Super '58 Custom Pickups and Tri-Sound Switch Your pair of Super '58 Custom humbuckers complement the AM153's tonewoods wonderfully. Ranging from a dark, warm, and jazzy sound to a sharper lead tone, these two humbuckers give you room and the sonic flexibility to really test your fingers. Switching seamlessly between jazzy and rock tones is made even simpler with the AM153's Tri-Sound switch -- it offers positions for a traditional-sounding series setting; a brighter, more single-coil-like tone for the parallel setting; or a coil-tapping sound to get a truer single-coil result.
Great Sustain Over a Smooth Neck Getting a nice sharp lead tone with minimal effort will allow you to take advantage of the AM153's comfortable action and smooth bound ebony fingerboard. Whether you're playing speedy runs or hesitating on sustained passing tones, you'll get a continuously smooth feel as your fingers glide over the AM153's Artstar fret edge treated neck. And you can count on the durable ART-1 bridge for longer sustain and consistent intonation.
