Overview

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.

    Comments about Ibanez AC240 Artwood Grand Concert Acoustic Guitar:

    I wanted a Mahogany acoustic. I had a budget of $4-500. So I took to my local GC and played everything they had,literally. I had narrowed it down to the Ibanez and the Tim Armstrong Hellcat but for me the tone and playability was just better with the Ibanez. It just felt better in my hands. Kinda wish it had a preamp in it but that's not a real deal breaker for me. This is a great guitar period,not just for the money. Setup was perfect for my liking,fit and finish are excellent.

      Comments about Ibanez AC240 Artwood Grand Concert Acoustic Guitar:

      All I can say is this guitar will surprise you. Go to a GC and pick this up. Great action and the sound is amazing! I was looking at lower end Martin's 000 and OXA. The sound of this Ibanez blew those two guitar's away. I even picked up A Taylor, Breedlove, Seagull. I did like the Seagull Rustic Acoustic as well. But for the money this Ibanez has big money sound for a small price tag. Try one and you will see.

          Comments about Ibanez AC240 Artwood Grand Concert Acoustic Guitar:

          Bought this guitar a couple years back. Projects very well, full sounding chords, very low priced. Would definitely get it again. Always recommend it to people looking to buy a guitar. All my friends who play love it. My only regret is that I didn't buy the acoustic electric. Guitar is really good to practice on and mess around jamming with your buddy's. If you want a good "campfire" guitar buy this.

            Comments about Ibanez AC240 Artwood Grand Concert Acoustic Guitar:

            Was looking playing every small body OM or 000 in the store and started with the Martins, Taylors, Breedloves and did not find anything that bit me. I went on to the Yamaha, Seagulls and so on. On a fluke, I grabbed this guitar. I owned an Ibanez Saber back when they first came out and loved it, but never associated Ibanez with acoustics. I was like magic when I played this. I had to have it. I have never been this smitten by a guitar before and I have owned a few, maybe more than a few. The only guitar I liked better was the Martin John Mayer OM I played a few years back but $3,500 was not in the budget at the time.

              Great Value, Great Tone, Worth Trying!

              Comments about Ibanez AC240 Artwood Grand Concert Acoustic Guitar:

              There are plenty of other reviews on the Ibanez AC240 and and most will say what I'm about to repeat....wonderful acoustic for the dollar. I give it 5 stars for what it is. It is NOT a high end Martin, Taylor, Breedlove, etc....but for $300, this solid top mahogany guitar delivers playability and tone. I tried Yamaha FS700 and 720, same smaller size bodies, and while nice (solid spruce top and a little less expensive) they didn't come close to the "woody" tone from the Ibanez. I admit I thought of Ibanez as an electric guitar powerhouse, and didn't think their acoustics would do anything for me. I was wrong. I LOVE the look of the darker non-gloss wood on this thing....gorgeous! Grover tuners, bone nut and saddle, very comfortable size body and neck and I can feel the chord as I strum it....without all that finish on the top, the wood seems to come alive to me. I won a nice Seagull mini jumbo entourage, a Recording King dread, and had a Big Baby Taylor. While I love the Seagull with it's cedar top, the Ibanez just has a different sound giving me to completely different anaimals! I remommend this guitar....try one out, the chords and notes are punchy, a little compressed and the sustain is excellent. I'm gonna go play mine right now....

              Perfect for Acoustic Blues fingerpicking

              Comments about Ibanez AC240 Artwood Grand Concert Acoustic Guitar:

              I had an old Alvarez that was pretty badly damaged, and desperately needed something decent to play... I went into the Cedar Rapids, IA store to play some acoustics. I literally played every small-bodied guitar under $1000. Taylor GS Mini (Great)Yamaha (very good) to Epiphone (not so good).Out of all of them, the one that stood out in looks, sweet tone when picked AND good string spacing for my big fingers was this wonderful Ibanez. Important note: The ONLY hard case in the GC inventory that fits this thing is a Roadrunner RRDWC Classic.
