There's no denying that American music wouldn't be the same today if it wasn't for the acoustic guitar - simply put, it's the most popular stringed instrument of the 20th century. With the Artwood Vintage Series, Ibanez aims at recapturing the magic of the very acoustic guitars that catapulted the instrument into the hearts of music lovers around the world. Just one look at the six-strings in this catalog and you might think for a moment that you've stumbled into a museum of early acoustic guitar models. Make no mistake, these Artwood Vintage distressed guitars are the result of Ibanez's current team of talented luthiers.
So, with that being said, what guitar body style do you prefer? There are plenty of top sellers to choose from here, including the AVD6 Artwood Vintage Distressed Dreadnought. Boasting a solid Sitka spruce top, mahogany back and sides and distressed tobacco sunburst finish, this work-of-art delivers a warm tone and full low-end that is sure to please anyone who's a fan of early '60s acoustic folk. While you're at it, check out the AVN6 - an Artwood Vintage Distressed parlor guitar that's ideal for players with smaller hands, as well as musical troubadours who want a compact instrument on their travels. Featuring Antique Nickel tuners and a mahogany neck with satin finish, this parlor stays in tune exceptionally well and is an absolute pleasure to play.
And those two models aren't your only choices in the Ibanez Artwood Vintage Series of distressed guitars. For those of you who prefer the comfortable feel and boisterous sound of a grand concert guitar, feast your eyes on the AVC6 - a modern masterpiece with a bright high-end sound and gorgeous appearance. When you get right down to it, the Artwood Vintage Series is a prime example why Ibanez has remained a respected musical instrument maker since 1957 - they put a great deal of pride and labor into their creations and it shows.
