Greetings all! I'm putting my heart on my sleeve now to ask for help in locating a "new" AM103BM
guitar. I have been looking around the net and can only find the one dealer "Chesbro" who has the instrument listed at over a grand...I am thinking that this is just a "little" pricey and my pockets aren't lined with precious metals so I am hoping to share this quest with the many in hopes that ones may know of an instrument hanging around their "local" shop(s).

I just wrote to my contacts in Europe and I am awaiting a response. Meanwhile, I could not resist this outreach. I real-eyes that I am late with discovering just how nice this series is but all in all, I have found this particular instrument to be my "holy grail" if you will and am committed to finding one, owning one and playing it with reckless abandon!

Hope no one minds that I pass along this link as a means of "introducing" myself to the massive. Know that from all that I've read from the various posts that I sincerely apprecia-love the passion for these guitars and I feel that I am in the right place for info and details.

Heart a Love

They've got it but I don't know about the price.
Good luck on your quest!

Prices are generally higher in Europe than in the US. Thomann has the AM103BM for 725 Euros. (Note: the picture shows an AS not an AM! Doh) At the current exchange rate this would be over $1065.

Chesbro's prices are usually about 80% of the manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP). I think others on the forum have bought the AM103BM for around $800. Someone (like Rusty!) will probably chime in soon on this.

Check out proguitarshop.com....they had it listed, but out of stock, give them a ring, seem like a killer group of guys there.

I paid $900 for my AS103BMNT in the summer of 2008, and it was worth it. As Rusty says above, Chesbro was the only US distributor to bring in the AM103BM. If they don't have one, ask them for a list of dealers who ordered them. Chesbro supplies West Coast Ibanez dealers, and they might tell you where they sent these AMs. Good luck!
Henceforth I ask not good-fortune, I myself am good-fortune.

Be sure to notice in the description the guitar pictured is not the
actual guitar. I would definitely ask for pictures of the actual guitar
to the same extent of the pics that are in the listing. For $865.00 they
should be able to do that for you.


PLEASE NOTE: The pictures are stock photos of a previously sold guitar. The guitar you receive will have different figuring courtesy of Mother Nature.

Here is one that is new for $579 with case. I also know of a floor model that I can turn you on to in Olympia, WA at Music 6000 that is a floor model that is $783 with the case plus tax. I hope this helps.

This model had interested me earlier in the summer. When he was looking for one, I thought I'd help and did a search myself. It was cool that he found one. They are very sweet guitars. The micro tuners scared me off a bit. Later Rusty confirmed that they are indeed not a problem. In the mean time I ended up with two very sweet guitars. The AG95 DBS and the AS83 violnburst. I was able to purchse both of those for less that the AS103BMNT was going for at the time. I think everyone ended up being happy.
