Overview

As an industry leader in the use of exotic tonewoods, Ibanez continues to innovate with their new AEW Series. This fresh approach merges in the AEW40ZW-NT, with a zebrawood top and elegant zebrawood back-and-sides. The thinner, amplification-friendly body makes it a perfect choice for gigging singer-songwriters.

A "soft" Florentine cutaway provides easy accessibility all the way to the 17th fret. The Fishman Pickup and Ibanez AEQ-SP2 Preamp deliver excellent reproduction and control of tonal characteristics and easy operation, while 1/4" and XLR outputs give you options for a variety of direct plug-in applications.

The exotic zebrawood will give you a distinctive tone and appearance that will garner attention and inspire the imagination. Let yourself be captured by the grandeur of the AEW Series.

Comments about Ibanez Exotic Wood AEW40ZW-NT Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

Absolutely awesome finish...in a room full of plain vanilla spruce and cedar top guitar finishes you will be noticed and complimented. The guitar has truly outstanding tone and good volume for a thin body. The thinbody for me allows for better control and accuracy while playing. I see this as my go to acoustic electric for many years to come. Truly a unique look. Love the zebrawood.

Zebra Wood Delight

Comments about Ibanez Exotic Wood AEW40ZW-NT Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

Absolutely beautiful guitar. Not only is the grain pattern stunning, but the symmetry is very easy on the eyes. I'm primarily an electric guitarist, but, being an apartment dweller, playing a high wattage tube amp isn't conducive to getting along with the neighbors. The action is very comparable to my electric and the neck is butter. The onboard electronics include a tuner and balanced and unbalanced outputs. It's nice to have options for amplifying other than just a ¼" jack. It fits nicely into a standard dreadnought acoustic case. The thinner body makes it comfortable to play and the sound is quite nice though a bit on the brighter side. The cutaway allows easy access to the upper frets. The build quality is way above average, especially of the price. Overall a very nice acoustic.

    Comments about Ibanez Exotic Wood AEW40ZW-NT Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    Ths is my favorite acoustic guitar. It is very lightweight. Its bodyshape & width of both the body & neck make it very comfortable to hold/play. The built in tuner & preamp is very accurate & convenient. The option to use 2 different outputs is also cool, & not seen in most guitars. Soundwise- it has a crispier brighter end, but its tone is balanced & smooth. I love its sound. However, since it has a thinner body than most, it is not quite as loud as the big thick ones. It's not a drastic lack of volume, but if you were to compare side by side you'd hear the difference. The trade off is worth that tho, & of course if you do want loud volume you can always just plug it in. It sounded great when I recorded it through my preamp onto my computer. & also great through my amp. Last but not least is the stunning zebrawood. It instantly draws the eye, & stands out. Overall, an amazing guitar.
