Ibanez Artwood Vintage Thermo Aged Series Acoustic Electric Guitar w/ Cutaway AVD9CENT


The Artwood Vintage series now showcases another vintage element by applying an "aging" process to the tonewood —" Termo Aged "tone wood, made by a special drying process at a high temperature which is commonly known as "baking" or "torrefaction".Only choice selected and seasoned tone wood can be cured to Thermo Aged wood. The wood is heated in a vacuum with a specific recipe for each kind of the wood in order to release water and decompose resin contained within the wood. As a result, Thermo Aged tone wood becomes light, hard and stable like tone wood dried for decades, while providing amazing response and a louder sound. The tone character includes a full-bodied low-end and a great smooth sustain in the treble strings which are common features of vintage guitars.
The dreadnought body shape of the AVD9CE, along with the Thermo Aged Solid Sitka Spruce top w/Thermo Aged Spruce X bracing, delivers an enormous frequency range. Okoume body back & sides with Tortoiseshell binding give this guitar a true vintage vibe. The Okoume soft-V shape satin finished neck with an Ovangkol fretboard provide playing comfort. Open gear tuners w/butterbean knobs(18:1 gear ratio) ensure accurate, stable tuning and help reduce the headstock weight, while bringing vintage vibe in its looks. A bone nut and saddle are chosen for its ability to transfer the string vibration naturally. A Fishman Sonicore Pickup accurately translates that full sound to whatever amplification system you plug it into, while the Ibanez AEQ-SP2 preamp provides the extra punch of an on-board EQ, and the convenience of an easy-to-read digital tuner located on the upper bout.
