    I wanted a beater guitar I could take to work, kick around the campfire, and have no stress taking on an airplane. I noticed a sale on the Ibanez line-up and took a look. I found this jewel and was really impressed. I loved the action, the neck felt perfect in my hand, and I couldn't seem to mess up a slide. It even had good harmonics. The tone was crisp and loud. I couldn't believe the price. I picked a few others up. The seagulls, fenders, and even the Taylor Big Baby didn't impress me like this one did. I was offered a really great deal on the solid wood seagull (it had a little damage from being on display, perfect for my intentions), but I couldn't let this one go. I think this one blew away many more expensive guitars. It is pretty, but I don't really care about that. If you get a chance (their no longer being carried at my particular store), then find one of these and buy it. Heck, I spent twice as much as I wanted, but it was well worth it.

    Unexpected Surprise

    By Mike Lombardo

    from Louisiana

    I was looking for something to upgrade from my grandaughter's present guitar. Tried several more expensive models, but wasn't yet impressed. I noticed the pearl inlay on this ax, and almost passed it by because of the price. I didn't want to go under $500, but I had to play it out of curiosity! I was blown away. The warm, crisp tone and easy fingering was a shock to say the least. It plays easier than most anything I tried, but the tone and the beauty were definately far beyond thet price. Although I own a dozen guitars, I'll buy another for myself.

    It's a babe

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    the Artwood 40NT is probably one of the smartest investments of my 17-year life. I played Martins, Taylors, Gibsons, and Ovations and once I had fiddled with the action and cleaned her up, none could or can compare to my baby. After owning this guitar for about 2.5 years and having played for nearly 3.5 years, I still cannot compare this guitar to any forementioned guitars, it would be unfair. I put D'Addario jazz strings (.013's) on this, and the warm mahogany dreadnought tone blends well with the bite of electric guitar strings. I wouldn't have any other acoustic.Besides tone, it looks great and I'll never sell it.

    Great Guitar

    By YoYoSteve

    from Texas

    I was having trouble finding a mid-range acoustic guitar. Something that had the right combination of looks, sound, and price. I kept debating between this guitar and the Taylor big baby. Since, I play drums professionally, guitar isn't my main instrument and I was just looking for a great guitar I could play around with at home. This guitar turned out to be wayyy more value than I expected. With a new pair of strings, this guitar sounds close to par with $1000+ guitars. We are constantly using it in the recording studio, and I highly recommend you to pick one up. Whether you are looking for your first guitar or your twentieth, this guitar is a steal!! Not to mention, it's great for seducing ladies =)

    Best buy in this range.

    By elevate155

    from Middletown, DE

    I was looking for an acoustic in this price range at local shops for the longest time. I played probably about 15-20 different guitars, but seriously, this one sounds better than all the rest. It does not project extremely far (the only solid part of the guitar is the spruce top), but the tone, intonation, and action is superior to anything in this range that I've played. And did I mention that with the exception of the Hummingbird, it's the most beautiful guitar I've ever seen.

    By far one of the best guitars I have ever owned. Very full well rounded sound and amazing playability, not to mention the beautiful inlay. A great guitar at an amazing price.

    sweet dagum guitar

    By banjerpicker

    from Crossville, TN

    Let me tell you all something, out of 6 guitars I own, my Ibanez AW-40 is the best sounding out of them all for the money. I dont think for the price I have ever played a better guitar than this one. This guitar is, in my opinion, the closest you can get to the Martin/Gibson acoustics without paying the thousands for it. There is not one thing I dont like about it. The beautiful "tree of life" abalone/pearl inlay really stands out. Overall a very beautiful and great playing guitar.

    Well Done Ibanez!!

    By soulzwar

    from North Charleston, SC

    My wife happens to work next to a guitar store and while I was waiting for her to get off I found myself wandering around the store. I was looking at acoustic guitars with no intention of purchasing until my eye caught the Ibanez AW40NT's "Tree of Life" inlay on the fretboard. I picked it up and strummed a few chords and was very impressed with its rich warmth, crisp highs, and great sustain. With a guitar this nice and well made I figured it would be pretty pricey, well to my surprise this guitar was very affordable and i snapped it up immediatley when I heard the price. I have been using daily for hours at a time and it is standing up to my "abuse" beautifully. Any working musician or entry level guitar player can NOT go wrong with this great find!

    Merry Christmas Indeed!

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    Santa was really good to me this year. I walked downstairs with my wife and son to find this beautiful guitar sitting by the tree. I've been wanting an Ibanez acoustic for a few years now and was shocked to see the AW40NT. The "Tree of Life" inlay on the fret board is spectacular. It's easy to understand why these are in the Artwood series when you see the stunning sitka spruce top and mahogany sides and back. This is the most playable acoustic I have encountered and the tone is incredible. Outstanding price for such a high quality instrument. Highly recommended.
