Solid mahogany top, mahogany back & sides, and advanced construction.
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 AC240 Artwood Grand Concert Acoustic Guitar, Ibanez respected the rich tradition of the acoustic guitar while adding modern interpretations in their continuing search for the ultimate in guitar tone.
This is a descendent of the old orchestral acoustic guitars, instruments designed to be audible over large instrumental ensembles in the days before amplification.
The Grand Concert body is made with a wider, 44.5mm neck and shorter 24.9" scale length, to make this ideal for finger picking. You'll get a strong, warm tone from the Solid Mahogany top and Mahogany back and sides, complemented by the warm tone of the Mahogany neck, Rosewood bridge and fretboard. It features a neck shape that provides an easy grip, while chrome Grover Tuners give you better tuning stability, and bone nut and saddle offer enhanced overtones. Other refinements include a headstock where tradition and modern style co-exist.
