A stage-ready Artwood with a solid engelmann spruce top, rosewood back & sides, and Fishman pickup.
With their full sound, strong bass, and clarity in chording and soloing, dreadnoughts have become the most popular acoustic body style. The AW380ECENT dreadnought is a member of the Artwood Traditional Acoustic-Electric series. These performance-level guitars share many features and are distinguished by their body style and woods used.
If you need a traditional guitar that can easily switch from acoustic to electric, you've found it here in the Ibanez AW380ECENT Artwood Dreadnought Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar. With a Fishman Sonicore Pickup and Ibanez SST Shape Shifter Preamp with Onboard Tuner, players will notice how smooth the transition is from acoustic to electric and back, and it will make playing live gigs so much easier.
The rich, clear tone of the AW380ECENT comes from its solid Engelmann Spruce top and Rosewood back and sides. The large Dreadnought body with cutaway provides musicians a big projection. Other refinements include a bone saddle on a distinctively contoured bridge and a headstock where tradition and modern style co-exist.
This Ibanez benefits from sophisticated electronics using a Fishman Sonicore pickup and an Ibanez AEQ-SST Shape Shifter preamp with onboard tuner to faithfully reproduce exquisite acoustic tones at any volume level. The AW380ECENT also features both 1/4" and XLR outputs for increased versatility.
