Ibanez AW535 Artwood Acoustic Guitar

There may not be a better illustration of why Ibanez takes so much pride in its modestly priced Artwood guitars than the Ibanez AW535. The three piece rosewood/flamed maple back is a perfect example of a woodworking appointment you'd expect to find on a guitar costing two or three times as much. The dreadnought body shape of the AW535, along with the solid Sitka Spruce top, delivers player comfort along with enormous frequency range that offers wave after wave of shimmering highs along with tight mids and a full-bodied low end.

A richly textured Abalone rosette handsomely tops off the natural high-gloss finished top. Grover tuners ensure smooth, accurate, stable tuning.

The Artwood series is the embodiment of what might be called the Ibanez "modern approach to tradition." Cutting edge woodworking technology enables the guitar maker's luthiers to reproduce the sophisticated bracing techniques of one-of-a-kind instruments of yesteryear.

While tradition is obviously the hallmark of the Artwood series, the company's decades-long search for the ultimate in acoustic tone has contributed to design alterations that give Artwood a voice all its own.

Customer Reviews
4 out of 5 (1 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "AW-535 Ibanez "
Sound: Can't be beat in this price range Feature: Beautiful three piece back of Maple and Rosewood Ease of Use: Ease of playabilty fantastic in this price range Quality: Very good so far. Value: Great deal! Manufacturer Support: Not needed. The Wow Factor: For the price, Wow! Overall: I bought this guitar over 10 months ago and it was great right out of the box. The back of this guitar is beautiful and the solid spruce top makes a world of difference. The string height ( Action) was very good when it arrived. I like the strings as low as possible without getting a buzzing sound. So, I have made very slight adjustments to the neck by tightening the truss rod (Clockwise ) a total of about 135 degrees or about 40% of a full turn. I keep them so close that in the summer I need to adjust counterclockwise about 15% to get the Buzz out as the summer weather makes the steel truss rod expand drawing the strings down closer to the fret board by a very small amount. Yes, even kept inside a temperature controlled house this is true because guitars can detect the temp outside somehow trust me. Of course, medium gauge strings brings action up very little but significantly. Anyway, I loved this guitar new with D'addario EXP light gauge coated strings. I just put a new set of Elixir Phosphor Bronze light gauge on it about two weeks ago and I haven't been able to put it down long enough to play my Martin DRSGT that is only about 3 months old. Don't get me wrong the Martin is a better sounding guitar but for the price the Ibanez Art Wood series is very hard to beat. This Ibanez is a great guitar for the money and I love it. Now that I think about it I got to play my Martin that I got from Zzounds about 3 months ago today! I feel like I'm having withdrawal symptoms. I have 6 acoustic guitars and I have 3 of them in the rotation of playing at least once every 2 weeks and I rarely miss a day of playing. How many guitars does a musician really need? Just one more. Always, just one more.
Style of Music: Rock, Country and bluegrass.
