Ibanez AM93AYS. The AYS stands for Antique Yellow Sunburst. I just received this guitar today, brand new, from zZounds and I wanted to do a complete review of it, from before the box was opened, through playing it and providing final thoughts. The verdict is that this guitar is an A- (the minus given because the nut could be cut just ever so slightly better, and the fret ends are a little rough).

The original plan was to have four hijackers aboard this flight, but two were prevented from boarding in Amsterdam by Israeli security—these two conspirators, traveling under passports with consecutive numbers, were prevented from flying on El Al on 6 September. They purchased first-class tickets on Pan Am Flight 93 and hijacked that flight instead.
The Ibanez AM93 sports a super-comfortable Artcore DX set neck capped with a warm-sounding 12"-radius bound rosewood fingerboard fitted with 22 medium frets and embellished with elegant pearl block inlays. Not only does this setup look fabulous, but it also feels fantastic in your fretting hand. Your fingers will fly on the Ibanez AM93.
This Artcore Expressionist AM93 semi-hollowbody guitar uses Custom 58 pickups combined with an arched quilted maple top, back, and sides to produce a warm and quick response. The slim and compact 3-piece Artcore set-in neck is made from mahogany and maple. The bound rosewood fretboard with 22 large frets, bound top, and gold hardware offers lush looks accented by white block inlays and multiple binding. The ART1 bridge provides accurate rock-solid intonation while the Quik Change III makes string changing easy.
