 For those who like the feel and tone of a hollow body, but need more volume and sustain than a hollow box allows, the AS153 is just your ticket.


As part of the Artstar Series, the AS153 is a high quality instrument for the working pro playing jazz, blues, rock, country or any hybrid genre you can imagine.

The Flamed Maple body is covered in a rich Antique Yellow Sunburst finish. The 3-piece set-in neck has a bound Ebony fingerboard with Acrylic/ Abalone block inlay, medium frets and the Artstar Fret Edge Treatment for a fast, smooth feel.


For extended tone options, the AS153 comes with two Super 58 pickups and a Tri-Sound switch for the neck pickup that allows you to select the humbucker pickups in series (traditional), parallel (brighter, single coil type tone w/ lower output and hum cancellation) or coil-tapping for a single coil sound.


Sure Grip III knobs provide non-slip functionality and an Gibraltar Artist bridge provides improved sustain and tuning stability.


The AS153 features gold hardware and includes a hardshell case.
