Ibanez is one of the most recognizable names in the music industry - not bad for also being one of the first overseas luthiers to gain a foothold in the North American market. They did that by offering the combination that's still their greatest strength today: high build quality, great sound and solid craftsmanship all affordable on a beginner's budget. Whether you're just starting out or growing an existing collection, Ibanez acoustic guitars are fantastic choices that are well-made, easy-to-play and backed up by decades of history.
To see how Ibanez stands by its mission statement of making "high quality, cutting edge musical instruments that any musician can afford and enjoy," just take a look at any guitar in this section. A great example is the Ibanez Talman TCM50 Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar. At a glance, it's obvious that this model is something special. Its good traits are more than just skin-deep, though: you'll also appreciate the brightness and warmth of its tone, not to mention the AP2 magnetic soundhole pickup that sounds great through your favorite acoustic guitar amp.
Browsing further through this section, you'll find plenty of distinctive instruments like the Ibanez Exotic Wood AEW40ZW-NT, as well as more traditional designs such as the PF 15NT Performance Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar. And if you want to try your hand at a famous guitarist's style, there's always the option of a signature model like the Ibanez Euphoria Steve Vai All Solid Wood Signature Acoustic-Electric Guitar. In Steve's own words, "the Euphoria is made to be sleek and thin with a large acoustic-electric sound. Its size gives it a bright crisp tone that allows it to sit on top of a mix."
No matter which of these Ibanez acoustic guitars you decide to add to your collection, you can rest assured that you're making a great choice. With dozens of different options, finding the perfect fit for your exact tastes is a breeze.
