Product Description

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.

Ivorex II
Ivorex II nuts are stronger and more durable than bone and even harder than the original Ivorex. Ivorex II allows brilliant highs and more pronounced lows with less mid-range which makes Ivorex II-fitted guitars perfect for amplification.

Many Ibanez acoustic guitars features both 1/4" and XLR outputs for increased versatility.

The EW50MPSENT features an ebony bridge and fretboard and solid monkey-pod top.

The EW50MPSENT features an ebony bridge and fretboard and solid monkey-pod top, back and sides.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (8 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Awesome looks and quality and extremely good playability and versatility. The EW50MPSE is a value that is hard to beat!"
Sound: The sound of the EW50 is passable unplugged. I also play it amplified by Behringer C2 condenser mics and through a Behringer ACX450 Acoustic amp. It sounds good and natural using the mics and really punchy through the amp. I like combining the amp and the mics and the versatility of sounds and tones is awesome. I'm still experimenting(that's what makes it fun!) Feature: The gold hardware on the guitar really sets it off. The electronics give me everything I need - I espcially like the on board tuner and the chorus effect. I'm hoping as the guitar ages, the tone will just get better because of the solid monkey pod constrution. Quality: I have no problem at all with the finish and fit of the EW50. The monkey pod wood is really eye-catching and rich looking, especially set off by the gold hardware and the mop headstock and fretboard work. I bought the guitar as a 2nd but haven't been able to find a single fault or blemish. Value: I would buy another just like it for the price I paid with no hesitation. Manufacturer Support: No problems requiring service or warranty work. The Wow Factor: The stunning looks and finish of the EW50MPSE alone are enough to make it a must have instrument. Combine that with the playability and versatility of sounds and tones and it's hard to find another guitar in it's price range that compares with it. Overall: Ibanez hasn't dissapointed with this product or any other of their instruments I have purchased. I now have a EWAS-20-NT acoustic(another awesome exotic wood series guitar) the EW50MPSE and an Ibanez mandolin. I even bought an Ibanez banner from Hong Kong LOL. I've got my eye on an artcore hollowbody next to join my happy family.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
