Musicians looking for a rich, traditional sound without sacrificing the comforts of a modern guitar can find it with the Traditional Acoustic-Electric Artwood. The Artwood series is the embodiment of what might be called Ibanez's "modern approach to tradition." Cutting edge woodworking technology enables Ibanez luthiers to reproduce the sophisticated bracing techniques of the one-of-a-kind instruments of yesteryear. While tradition is obviously the hallmark of the Artwood series, Ibanez's decades-long search for the ultimate in tone has contributed to their improved design, giving the Artwood a voice all its own.
You'll find traditional specifications common to each model, such as a bone nut and saddle and a dovetail neck joint, as well as a neck shape that provides an easy grip. Rich tone and big sound come from the carefully selected high-quality wood used to construct the guitar. The modern design of the bridge shape efficiently transmits vibration and the simple yet elegant aesthetic touches fuse a modern design sense with a traditional feel. Musically the Artwood Series is ready to roll in any direction you want to go.
