Ibanez AVC10MH Artwood Vintage Acoustic
The grand concert body shape of the Ibanez AVC10MH Artwood Vintage Acoustic Guitar, along with the Thermo Aged Solid Mahogany top delivers an enormous frequency range. Combined with a Thermo Aged solid Mahogany back and Thermo Aged Spruce X top/back bracing, the AVC10MH offers a wide open resonant sound with vivid tone projection. Herringbone purfling on the body, Ivoroid bindings on body, neck and headstock, specially designed Mother of Pearl fretboard inlay all contribute to this vintage feeling instrument. The mahogany soft-V shape neck in satin finish with a cultured maple fretboard provides playing comfort. Grover open gear tuners w/butterbean knobs (18:1 gear ratio) ensure accurate, stable tuning and help reduce the headstock weight, while bringing vintage vibe in its looks. A bone nut and saddle are chosen for its ability to transfer the string vibration naturally.
"The modern approach to acoustic guitar tradition" has long been our catchphrase for the Artwood series. Artwood Vintage steps even further back in history and borrows the best features of highly desired vintage instruments.
The Artwood Vintage series now showcases another vintage element by applying an "aging" process to the tonewood -- "Thermo Aged" tone wood, made by a special drying process at a high temperature which is commonly known as "baking" or "torrefaction." Only choice selected and seasoned tone wood can be cured to Thermo Aged wood. The wood is heated in a vacuum with a specific recipe for each kind of the wood in order to release water and decompose resin contained within the wood. As a result, Thermo Aged tone wood becomes light, hard and stable like tone wood dried for decades, while providing amazing response and a louder sound. The tone character includes a full-bodied low-end and a great smooth sustain in the treble strings which are common features of vintage guitars.
