Exquisite craftsmanship, quality woods, and dynamic design.
Huge concert-quality sound comes out of a full dreadnought solid Engelmann spruce top with innovative narrow bracing. It's enhanced by the solid mahogany back and mahogany sides. Abalone dot inlays, maple binding, and elegant fretboard, headstock, and bridge inlays provide sublime visual appeal. A super-tight dovetail neck joint provides great resonance and stability.

I bought this guitar about 8 months ago and I couldn't be happier. I haven't picked up my Taylor much since, and I even bought a second AW500 for my brother. The sound you get from this guitar is TOP NOTCH. I would recommend this guitar to anyone who is looking for a "step up" from their beginner or a high-end user looking for a nice travel guitar.Buy this guitar, and trust me, you won't regret it.
For the money this guitar is the best value on the market. Excellent craftsmanship on a beautiful guitar.
Beautiful sound, only two dislikes, my clear pickguard has two marks where it was bent while putting it on the top and there are fill in areas on the bridge where the abalone inlay did not fill the inset properly. small problems but a close look reveals them, however the sound more than makes up for them, sweet!
Wonderful playability and great warm sound.
Quite possibly the best guitar at this price point. I played all the rest and concidered spending double. This was the way to go. Only issue is the action is set way too high for my liking. Extra saddle included to tailor to your liking.
I have owned this great piece of woodwork for about 3 months now and i am deeply in love with it. its a great guitar to just sit down and jam at home. the sound it produces is well worth it.
I own an AW500 I will put this one up against any accoustic made. I play bluegrass Gospel. I like this guitar as good as or better than my Martin. It sounds as good or better than most that I pick with. At festivals everyone strains to see what brand it is. I keep my capo on the head over the brand so they will have to ask.
I play Bluegrass and Gospel Music. Most of my friends play Martin Guitars. They'll say my "Ibanez AW500" plays and sounds as good as their Martins do. I think so too.
