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.

  • Best in this price range.

    As reviewed by Jeremy Deats on 9/12/2011

    I had a Martin OOO-15 Solid Mahogany back, sides and top. I loved that guitar, but had to get rid of it. When the time came that I could purchase it again I decided to (just for kicks) see what was available with a mahogany top in the sub $500 price range. This guitar was the only one I could find, with a few reservations I did end up buying this guitar and I do love it. To compare it to the $1200 OOO-15, I can tell you there are two primary differences: 1. My OOO Mahogany top Martin just had better resonance, it had that "Martin ring". AC240 does resonate well (and better I might add, than the sub $500 High Pressure Laminate back and side guitar C.F. Martin sells). It's built of quality components. Bone nut, grover tuners, etc.. It feels comfortable to hold and finger style playing just rings on this guitar. the negative is that it's a bit rough around the edges. Although built of quality components it feels a bit more like a mass produced product than even the sub $500 Martins do, but that "feel" is open to subjectivity. I know others disagree with me. After spending some time with it I love my AC240. It feels and sounds similar to my lost OOO-15, but the Ibanez Artwood fretboard works better for my big hands and fingers. If someone offered me a OOO-15 now and said I'd have to give my AC240 for trade, I do the trade, sell the OOO-15, buy another AC240 and sell pocket the rest of the cash. Fantastic job on Ibanez part on the Artwood series. These really haven't gotten the press they deserve. Wish strongly it came with a hardshell case, it deserves one.

  • Amazing quality, looks and playability

    As reviewed by Christopher Fisher on 11/6/2013

    I went to the Guitar Center in Garden Grove the other day to look at acoustics. I just bought a 1964 Gibson J 45 and returned it due to damage, so I thought maybe I'd find a replacement. I looked around a bit and I played the newer Gibsons, The Martins and a few other misc. guitars in the back room. The price range was $1,500 to $3,000 and none really blew me away. I was looking for resonance, and a lower and easy to play action. So, I walked out to the front guitar room and saw a couple Ibanez's. I've owned Ibanez for over 20 years, all electric RG's and PGM's and 24 fret models so I may have a bias towards them. Anyway, I thought the Artwoods looked cool so I tried a couple. I asked for the Satriani model as I thought maybe I'd buy that one...none in stock. The sales guy mentioned the AC240 hanging way up high and got on a ladder and pulled her down. She looks small, but the dark finish is quite unique. Instantly, it was the best guitar I played all day. I could not believe it said $299 on it after playing effortlessly on it for a minute or maybe two. I figured it was mis-labled in price so I had better take advantage of it now! I asked the salesman if he had a case and he looked at me kinda oddly and then realized I was buying it and said "Awesome!" and returned moments later with a hardshell case. This is the finest acoustic guitar I've owned and I gotta tell you if it were $1,000 I would have bought it.

  • Great Guitar for the Money

    As reviewed by shawn kelly on 8/10/2012

    Just picked this up recently at the Manhattan NYC G.C. and bonded with it right away. I had been looking for my first acoustic for several months. Been playing strictly Fender Strats and Teles until now. I probably played 100 non electric/acoustic guitars under $400. Finally I found one that spoke to me for whatever reason, sounds great, relatively small size and was very comfortable and playable overall. The Mahogany has a nice feel. While I'm not going to tell you that this blows away the Martins, Gibsons, and Taylors, I think it is a good value for the money (especially with the G.C. coupon) and should only get better with time. I will say that not all of these guitars are created equal, I played several of these as well as the natural AC300s - some were great some were so-so. I always recommend trying to play as many as possible of any guitar you are considering, then take that particular guitar home that speaks to you.
