The Artwood series is the embodiment of Ibanezs modern approach to tradition. Cutting-edge woodworking technology enables Ibanezs luthiers to reproduce the sophisticated bracing techniques of one-of-a-kind instruments of yesteryear. While tradition is obviously the hallmark of the Artwood series, Ibanezs decades-long search for the ultimate in acoustic tone has contributed to design alterations that have given Artwood guitars a voice all their own. The Dreadnought body shape of the AW80CE, along with the solid Sitka Spruce top, delivers player comfort along with an enormous frequency range that offers wave after wave of shimmering highs along with tight mids and a full-bodied low end. Artwood guitars full sound is the result of using a solid Spruce top with Okoume as a back-and-sides material. The Ibanez T-bar under-the-saddle pickup equalises the volume from each string and delivers a well-balanced signal, while the Ibanez AEQ-TP2 preamp provides the extra punch of on-board EQ. Artwood models also boast a convenient and easy-to-read digital tuner, located on the instruments upper bout. The bone nut and saddle were chosen for their ability to transfer string vibration naturally. Ibanez Chrome die-cast tuners ensure smooth and stable tuning.
The Artwood series was crafted to produce a traditional as well as a modern guitar. Technology moves forward at a frantic pace and the world of guitar craftsmanship is no different. In producing the Artwood series, we’ve respected the rich tradition of the acoustic guitar while adding modern interpretations in our continuing search for the ultimate in guitar tone.
