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 fingerpicking. 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.

Case sold separately.

    As reviewed by Rob Ercoli on 8/12/2013

    This is the second time I bought this guitar. I realized after trading in the first one that it was a mistake. So I got another one. The first one I had was when it was brand new (2010 or '11, I think). My new one is definitely brand new. A couple of differences: the old one was made in Indonesia, the new one in China. And the new one has a "tapered neck," which gradually gets wider as you go up the neck toward the body. I think this is a nice feature. It takes a while to get use to but it allows for great string spacing for finger picking. The action was a bit high due to a high saddle but after shaving it down it was great. The truss rod needed a tweak too (not even 1/4 turn) but that's life. I installed Tusq bridge pins, just because I happened to have an extra set lying around the house. Overall this little guitar is big value for it's price tag. Clean construction, great sound, nice features. Maybe add to the price tag and throw in gig bag. You really cannot go wrong with this guitar for the price. But get a good case for it because it's really worth its weight in gold! Nice abalone rosette, headstock logo, Grover tuners, and bone nut and saddle that you would ordinarily find on a much more expensive guitar. I like the "low maintenance" satin finish and back of the neck. The smaller body is nice, not as bulky and more comfortable than a dreadnought, especially after prolonged practice/playing times. Good size for smaller-built people and kids. The fit and finish of the Ibanez AC240 is beautiful. The inside of the box is clean and neat, no glue spots or loose braces, kerfing, etc. Very light weight but big sound. Looks and plays like models twice or thrice it's price range!

  • I Love This Guitar!

    As reviewed by JOHN HARDIN on 9/5/2012

    I am an electric guitar player looking for an acoustic to broaden my experience and have some fun with. I play blues and really did not like the numerous dreadnoughts I tried. Eventually I found parlor, grand concert, and Takamine NEX body guitars and decided this was better suited to me. I was just about sold on a Seagull Entourage or a Takamine 406 NEX when I tried a friends old Martin Mahogany top Grand Concert. I loved it, but way out of my price range. I was in Guitar Center trying guitars and picked up the Ibanez AC240. I loved the feel of the neck, the rough finish of the body and top, the action, the sound, and I knew this was the guitar for me. A great blues acoustic guitar for people used to electric. Great sustain, clear middle tones, bends, hammer ons, and other blues techniques are a breeze. Feels so much like my semihollow. I love the rustic look of this guitar as well, it looks like a guitar you could imagine Robert Johnson playing. Great tuners, bone nut and saddle, solid mahogany top, great action, no buzzing, all for this price. Wow is all I can say.

  • Surprised

    As reviewed by Gary on 9/1/2014

    Went to the local GC store to buy an steel string acoustic -considering the Martin 000-15 or Taylor 300 series. The salesman (I've purchased somewhere around 4 guitars from this guy) handed me the Ibanez AC240opn and claimed that this is his personal favorite. After having played the others - at first I was skeptical about the overall quality because of the price. However, after playing a few bars that was it - feel in love with the mahogany look and the balanced tone. Excellent finger picking guitar for me. So I purchased it, took it home and haven't stopped playing it since. For the price, or even several times the price, it would be hard to find a similar guitar any better. One word of caution - mahogany is a somewhat soft wood and there is no heavy finish on this guitar so it will dent easily. Finally, didn't give it 5 stars because that would be near perfect and having been playing guitars for 45 or so years - I've not found a near perfect guitar so far.
