Ben_eggmen's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Good, but upgrade"

Ibanez AS83 [2004-2006]
See previous descriptions


The handle may confuse users of half-cash, it's pretty late but nice.

Weight level, it is much lighter than es-335, so very reasonable.


The origination microphones are rather flat and rather deaf. As I played little on the neck pickup, I left home.

To play more rock, I set up a SH4 acute, and there it gets a real guitar rock !!


Good product but to see improvements.

Ibanez AS83 [2004-2006]
This guitar is made in China as indicated on the label.
It includes the configuration Gibson ES 335 with a slight modification in the horns (more advanced than the Gibson.
The neck profile repents LP 59 in just over end.


The handle is very comfortable to play, access to acute poses no problems.
The guitar is well balanced and allows for comfortable use both sitting and standing.
The position of the settings is classic Gibson.


I use this guitar to play blues and rock but I found myself hard to do because the original pickups are surprising in their versatility.
I use a Peavey amp DeltaBlues for clear sound, the sound obtained is very blues with a preference for micro serious.
For heavy distortion I use a Marshall amp 30th anniversary here we discover the versatility of this guitar that sounds more rock than ES 335.


Initially I wanted to buy an Ibanez Artist, but the price of the occasion is Assé high so I went to see what he exits on nine.
I saw the AS83 but I was only tank in terms of product quality compared to the asking price.
After trying I was dazzled by the sound of this guitar and the range of use that could have, so I bought it.
It should be noted that the vendors with whom I Esay this guitar are all impressed by the value price of this instrument.
More aesthetical finishing and this guitar is remarkable (corp flamed maple), it's beautiful and it sounds that the people demand.

Ibanez AS83 [2004-2006]
Made in China
22 boxes
2 Ibanez humbuckers of fairly average quality (the round on the mic but a lack of serious DEFINITIONS, and treble is sorely lacking teeth)
Les Paul type bridge
2 volume pots
2 pots of tonalitbr /> Lutherie trs good, mechanical good quality profile of the handle excellent (even for incredible prices), body flamed maple bindings, gloss.
The guitar is beautiful trs.


The handle is simply excellent, the profile is fairly flat (type LP-60), rosewood fingerboard trs of good quality perfect finish, bindings throughout the key frets trs fine (this I liked that I had ds in hand).
Ergonomics is the same as ES335 guitar fairly large, moderately heavy.
The Chinese are passs mates in the art of building good trs musical instruments at a price drisoire. The luthier with whom I did replace the pickups also wonders how do they get such a price.
The pickups are trs means, however, lack of large DEFINITIONS, a fawn trsdsagrable Drool, and sorely lacking teeth on the microphone acute, it is unfortunate position intermdiaire benefitted because we lose the harmonics that give micro acute as charming position neck / bridge.


Grading is taking into account the original pickups.
I did just replace the pickups with two Seymour Duncan: a PAF59 SH1 and SH2 in the neck Jazz bridge. I did not choose the SH4 not to "out" of the spirit of the guitar, and to avoid the feedback as it is when even a semi-hollow. And that's just wonderful! Roundness, its just a flute neck, in the gnaque bridge and full of harmonics. I am fulfilled. I urge the two microphones. The crunch position with a TS9 Tube intermdiaire SECAM and a Fender Hot Rod Deluxe is splendid. In his clear, neck position, the sound of George Benson.
10/10 I put the replacement of the microphones (with covers to keep the beauty of the object), otherwise I would put 7 / 10. Replacement cot me 220 euros all inclusive.


I use it for 1 month.
I rvais an ES335, I tried about twenty, old, of rcentes but it's really expensive, and finishes are not gniales, not on dco the button, the tables often ugly trs (the best are kept for custom MODELS), Gibson does not care really the mouth of the world. It's a shame.
And as I walked into town, past a window, my girlfriend pointed out to me, I try, buy, play and even in the evening concert. I'm happy as a kid, especially since the addition of Seymour. My guitar teacher friend just bought the same (the jackal ...).
I highly recommend the purchase of this beautiful instrument and a great price dfiant any competition.

Ibanez AS83 [2004-2006]
Model based on the ES 335 Gibson, made in China. Everything has been said.


Good ergonomics, nice handle. Lutherie neat.
To obtain a sound is simple: two humbuckers, a three-position switch, two volumes, two tones. Gib like, what. Broadly, three basic sounds by the microphone switch. Classical, I I want nothing else. The guitar sounds at 58 and made coffee, I do not believe. An instrument has a personality, I do not like chameleons.


I wanted an ES 335 to play jazz, fusion, blues ... In short, the directory of the ES, without paying the ridiculous demands that Gibson (and again, the euro is strong against the dollar!)

Astonished by the quality of the violin, but resolved to immediately change any mics (these two points are almost constant in Ibanez), so I opted for a pair of Seymour 59, which seemed the most faithful to the spirit of the guitar (Gibson 57's are more expensive and not better in my opinion). I was not disappointed. I have at least as well as € 600 for Gib (480 guitar, the pickups 120), or 3 to 4 times cheaper, and left-please (I belong to this caste minority and ostracized) . Sustain enormous Round Neck microphone at will, pretty crunch ... Strato with the rest of the book, I'm dressed for winter.

I put 9 of 10 with Seymour. I decline to 6 / 10 with original Ibanez.

I play on Fender Twin
Effects KORG AX1500


I use it for a month. With the change of microphones, it is transfigured. This instrument pro, with unbeatable value for money. I have not tried many of its competitors, and then "backwards", being left-handed. But I have heard over and over.

The only problem for me: it is made in China. I think it's possible to get out of the instruments of this quality without exploiting the workforce at low prices. Godin with his trademark "Art & Lutherie", made in Canada, shows: they are better and no more expensive than Chinese. The argument "Gibson is expensive because it is US" does not hold water. It's expensive because they sweeten the myth. Fender is (barely) more reasonable about it.

This choice I would do without hesitation. I prefer to buy my guitars used, but it's really hard to come across what we want when we are left-handed.
