Ibanez AW54CE Artwood Acoustic-Electric

The cutaway dreadnought body shape of the Ibanez AW54CEOPN Artwood acoustic-electric guitar, and solid Mahogany top offers full-bodied, well-rounded bigger-than-expected sonic response. The guitar's Mahogany top, back, and sides, breathe freely thanks to a special open pore finish treatment, giving it a full, rich, open sound. A Fishman Sonicore Pickup accurately translates that full sound to whatever amplification system you plug it into, while the Ibanez AEQ210TF preamp provides the extra punch of on-board EQ, and the convenience of an easy-to-read digital tuner located on the upper bout.

A simple, clean, black-and-white multi rosette handsomely appoints an understated flat finished top. Ibanez Chrome die-cast 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
4.5 out of 5 (4 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "WOW."
Overall: Normally I don't write reviews unless I stumble upon something exceptional, and this guitar is no doubt something else. I've been doing research over the past year to find my dream acoustic guitar, something that I'll cherish for a lifetime. I'll start off by sharing that I'm not an Ibanez guy per se, although I am a big fan of their craftsmanship for their electric guitars, I've mostly played HSS Stratocaster's before settling down to my Studio Les Paul. Up until now the only acoustics I've had were beater guitars, with the exception of a Luna Acoustic which was a gift I could never quite take to because of the small neck profile and scale. A few months ago I was lucky to run into an Ibanez AW54 Artwood (non electric, no cutaway) at a local guitar shop and was blown away by the sound and tone, it had the same richness and warmth as a mahogany Martin and Taylor (both cost over a grand) but with way better action and feel. At that moment I was sold. I needed to get the AW54CE.This morning I was pumped to find the guitar arrived after 2 days, free shipping. Even though the temp outside was 40 degrees (big concern), the guitar was well-packaged and insulated. Taking it out of the box I felt like a kid on Christmas. The pictures you'll find floating around the internet don't do this thing justice. Not one flaw or blemish anywhere to be found. And the one thing that shocked me the most, the neck and bridge needed absolutely zero adjustment. The action was flawless! There was already a battery inside, so after an hour of letting it acclimate, I just tuned it up and was absolutely floored by the tone. Holy crap. I still can't believe I can rip on this thing like my Les Paul, with no action set up whatsoever! I'm now sold on Ibanez products. The craftsmanship between the setup, the bridge, the special pins, tuning heads, attention to detail with the neck, I could go on forever. But I'll leave you with this. If you're in the market to drop a couple hundred on an acoustic, and you want QUALITY that will hopefully last you a lifetime, look no further. This is the guitar you've been dreaming of.

Overall: For the money, I'm not sure you'll find a better value. You usually expect a guitar in this price range to sound bad... Not this one. I was very impressed with the quality of tone, especially plugged in. I've owned at ton, martin, gibson etc... While this is not a Martin, at this price Martin, Taylor & Gibson has nothing that will compete with this tone per price.
