What makes a true work of art? The beauty of the craftsmanship? The detail of the lines and curves? The subtlety of the color and hue? Probably all of the above, but the most important aspect is that connection with an audience, the spark that speeds up the heartbeat and ignites the imagination.
You won't find anything quite like the exquisite Ibanez Exotic Wood Series, even among guitars that are much more expensive. These instruments look beautiful enough for gallery display and yet are ready for any type of gig. Now, that's an artistic accomplishment.
New for 2009 is the EW50MPS, the first solid top EW model, featuring a solid monkey pod top and monkey pod back and sides. Monkey pod is similar in resonance and look to koa. The new spalted mango-wood body on EW20SG and cocobolo body on EW40CB continues the EW tradition of the finest exotic tone woods, superb electronics and surprisingly low prices.
