An ode to the past with modern appointments, including Fishman Sonicore pickup and Ibanez preamp.
The Artwood Series was crafted to produce a traditional yet modern guitar. Technology moves forward at a frantic pace and the world of guitar craftsmanship is no different. In producing the Artwood Series, Ibanez has respected both the rich tradition of the acoustic guitar while adding modern interpretations in its continuing search for the ultimate in guitar tone.
The AW535CENT Artwood Solid Top Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric features their Dreadnought body shape with single cutaway design, a solid Sitka spruce top, mahogany neck (with a satin finish), and a 3-piece rosewood/flamed maple/rosewood back, and a rosewood fingerboard with maple inlays. It also comes with a bone nut to deliver a well-balanced sound, a bone saddle on a distinctively contoured rosewood bridge with Ibanez Advantage bridge pins, and chrome Grover tuners. When you need some more amplification, the AW535CENT includes a Fishman Sonicore pickup with an Ibanez AEQ-SP2 preamp and onboard electronic tuner. It also gives you the choice of XLR or 1/4" outputs so you can plug into more gear than your average guitar.
