Let This Axe Do The Talking!

While tone is key for many guitarists, you can't write off how well your axe looks while you're wearing it. Your Ibanez EW20ASE Exotic Wood acoustic-electric guitar features a figured ash body with an enticing grain pattern on the top that'll stop crowds in their tracks. This baby also features Ibanez's clear-sounding SQR pickup and SRTc preamp; an onboard tuner; volume, three-band EQ, and anti-feedback controls; a rosewood bridge with Ibanez's secure Advantage bridge pins; and a robust mahogany neck topped with a 21-fret rosewood fingerboard, complete with an attractive 12th fret inlay. Playability is the name of the game with Ibanez guitars, and this acoustic-electric axe delivers it in spades -- along with sleek exotic looks and clean full-bodied tone.

Learn more about the Ibanez EW20ASE Exotic Wood guitar:


Distinctive Figured Ash Body

You won't find too many acoustic-electrics with a body that looks quite like your EW20ASE's. This baby's figured ash top boasts an exquisite and distinct grain pattern that's visually captivating. Ash is a medium-weight wood and is a popular choice for guitar bodies because it offers a clear and focused sound with just enough lows and mids. The highs on your EW20ASE are present but not too harsh -- aggressive picking will help your playing come through in a slightly rounded and appropriately mellow fashion.

SQR Pickup SRTc Preamp System and Onboard Tuner

The electronics on your EW20ASE Exotic Wood acoustic-electric capture the warm and full-bodied tone of this baby's ash body, projecting all of its color and shape. The controls on this system include three-band EQ faders as well as your master volume and anti-feedback controls. Here you'll find an onboard tuner to help you maintain your intonation, even if you're in the middle of a set.

Mahogany Neck and Rosewood Fingerboard

This axe's sturdy mahogany neck rests comfortably in your hand and provides a dark tone and lingering sustain to your playing -- laying the road for a smooth transfer of sound over to your EW20ASE's resounding ash body. The smooth rosewood fingerboard invites your fingers eagerly for session after session of smooth sailing over 21 frets. With head-turning looks and addicting playability, this acoustic-electric will be a pleasure to play.

Balanced 1/4" and XLR Outs

One handy feature on your EW20ASE is the option of having balanced 1/4" and XLR outs. You can go the standard route and use an instrument cable into an amplifier or a DI box, but you also have the option of going straight into the PA's mixing board via XLR cable, bypassing an amp altogether if you want. More options means even greater flexibility for this already stellar acoustic-electric treat!

Product Description

Sound and playability are the two most important components in an instrument. However, the importance of the visual aspect cannot be denied. The appearance and sound of these three unique instruments were designed for the player who is looking for a completely different voice. Ibanez doesn't think you'll find anything else quite like the EW guitars. If you do find something somewhat similar, you'll find that the price isn't remotely similar. These are simply great -- and very different -- guitars at great prices.

4.5 out of 5 (66 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
"WORTH 2,000"
Sound: pretty good sound. Feature: the "g" on the on-board tuner is way off, this is the only thing I can say detrimental to this instrument. Ease of Use: Easily the easiest acousitic I have ever played, has a neck just my Les Paul. low action, thin, and fast. Quality: Great finish, just stunning, very good sound, tremendous action and ease of playing, the tuner is the only thing I have a small problem with. Value: I've played 2000 Martins that don't look and play any better than this just a tremendous guitar, and I've been playing since the Beatles came out. Manufacturer Support: Haven't used it, maybe I should to get the tuner fixed. but I don't use it anyway The Wow Factor: I have it 3months and I love it great guitar, even bette value for the money. Overall: I see no reason why I won't have this guitar for many years, this is a stunner.

"Natural beauty!"
Sound: When I saw this guitar on the internet, I was suprised by the looks. So I went to the local music store, an d tried it. i didn't believe what I heard, when I first hit the strings. The sound is very full and warm, while the higher notes sounds clear. Feature: The first thing I've noticed was the quilted ash. The front, sides back, and headstock are all in quilted ash, the neck is made from mahogany, and with the abalone inlay, and the Ibanez logo in the headstock, makes the guitar looks like a guitar that's worth twice the price I'd paid for it. Very beautiful! The electronics are perfect for me. When amplified, the sound is very rich. The only thing I've noticed, that it has a low output when I bought it. After a while, I've noticed the batteries are empty...heheh... Ease of Use: At my local store, the salesman told me that he had tried to improve the action, because it was a little hard to play fast. Now it plays very well, better then my Les Paul electric guitar! The neck is very thin, but it still gives the guitar a long sustain! Also the tuner is very easy to use. Quality: The finishing touch on this guitar is very OK! the guitar is well made. No sharp edges or such things. The bindings are very well made. Also the brigde is made from the Ibanez IvorexII type material. Gives it a very great sound! Value: The price was very good. I had expected when I saw it for the first time, it was twice as expensive....! Manufacturer Support: i don't know....I haven't had any support, and i don't think I'll need it...heheh The Wow Factor: Very cool product! looks awesome, little ''blingbling'' effect...I like that! Overall: This beauty will be in my collection for a long time!
