The dreadnought body shape of the AVD9, along with the Thermo Aged Solid Sitka Spruce top with Thermo Aged Spruce X bracing, delivers an enormous frequency range. Mahogany body back and sides with tortoiseshell binding gives this guitar a true vintage vibe. The mahogany soft-V shape neck in satin finish with a rosewood fretboard provides playing comfort. Open gear tuners with butterbean knobs (18:1 gear ratio) ensure accurate, stable tuning and help reduce the headstock weight, while bringing vintage vibe in its looks. A bone nut and saddle are chosen for its ability to transfer the string vibration naturally. D'Addario Nickel Bronze strings emphasize the natural voice of Thermo Aged wood with incredible clarity, resonance and projection.
Artwood Vintage Series
The “modern approach to acoustic guitar tradition” has long been Ibanez's catchphrase for the Artwood Series. Artwood Vintage steps even further back in history and borrows the best features of highly desired vintage instruments.
The Artwood Vintage Series now showcases another vintage element by applying an “aging” process to the tonewood – Termo Aged tonewood, made by a special drying process at a high temperature, commonly known as “baking” or “torrefaction”. Only choice selected and seasoned tonewood can be cured to Thermo Aged wood. The wood is heated in a vacuum with a specific recipe for each kind of the wood in order to release water and decompose resin contained within the wood. As a result, Thermo Aged tonewood becomes light, hard and stable-like tonewood dried for decades, while providing amazing response and a louder sound. The tone character includes a full-bodied low end and a great smooth sustain in the treble strings which are common features of vintage guitars.
