New Left Handed Ibanez TCM50LE & AS53L Guitars

Neal August 16, 2012 5

Almost exactly a month ago Ibanez announced the new AFJ85L semi-acoustic, and now they’re back with two more lefty models! Here are a couple of new left handed guitars we spotted on the Ibanez UK website.

The new TCM50LE is an electro-acoustic from the Ibanez Talman range, while the AS53L is a rather beautiful looking semi-hollow from the Artcore series.  You will find links to these guitars at the bottom of this page.

    That AS53L is a real turn on.

    What’s the MSRP on it?

      They’ll be pretty cheap. UK price is £249, but if they make it to the States they’ll be a little cheaper as always.

    My god, that TCM50LE is beautiful. You have any idea how much one of those would cost at a major chain (i.e. Guitar Center) that would get one shipped into the States?

    i’ve had the AS53L for about 6 weeks now, and i love it. sounds and plays as good as it looks. my only problem with it is the tuning machines (if they can even be called “tuning machines” because they are just plain awful, but i’m changing them out this weekend)
