I bought this used from GC earlier this year. I am selling it because I bought another instrument and need the cash. I have owned several import versions of ES-335 style guitars as well as a Gibson ES-335 studio, but this is my first Ibanez. I now see why people gush about Ibanez hollow body guitars. The build quality is incredible.
The guitar came to me with two upgrades already performed: a brass/bone nut and Gotoh Tuners. From what I have researched, those are two features that are on higher end Ibanez guitars, but I don’t think they are standard on the 2013 AS 93.
I replaced the original wiring with CTS 500K pots, Orange Drop Caps .22uf, Switchcraft toggle switch and input jack and wired 50s style with braided push back cloth wiring.
Aside from the upgrades listed above and a Rosewood fretboard, I think all the other specs are similar to the current year’s model.
The Gator Case was purchased from Sweetwater after I bought the guitar, so it is practically brand new.
The guitar is set up with 11s.
All in all, this is a fantastic guitar, especially at this price.
