An all-mahogany acoustic that takes you back to the '60s.
This Musician's Friend exclusive harkens back to classic guitars of yesteryear with its satin open pore natural finish that gives it a more broken-in vintage vibe. It looks and sounds like a guitar that has been handed down through generations, but comes at a price that's not what you'd expect from a similar find in a second-hand shop.
The U-shape neck and cutaway help those with bigger hands float up and down the rosewood fretboard. The Grand Concert body with its X bracing and all-mahogany tonewood provides a darker sound with more midrange throughout making it an ideal for those who love that classic Americana sound. Aesthetically, the fretboard inlays, doubled-lined trim, rosette and sharp-looking pickguard complete its down home, traditional feel. Case sold separately.
As the Ibanez œmodern approach to acoustic guitar tradition, the Artwood Series of acoustic instruments has long been a source of pride and a labor of love. Now, with the new Artwood Vintage Series, Ibanez looks to the past for inspiration in the development of new historically influenced instruments.
The Ibanez AV2COPN is a Grand Concert size guitar featuring a solid-Mahogany top with Mahogany back and sides, and a satin-finish Mahogany neck. The all-Mahogany construction produces a tight low end with focused mids and highs, making it an excellent choice for fingerstyle and acoustic blues. The Natural Open Pore finish allows for optimum vibration and resonance to create a tone, volume and projection that are far beyond what one would expect from an instrument of this size and price range.
A bone nut and saddle make the AV2COPN an extremely responsive instrument, reproducing delicate finger picking or percussive strumming with equal distinction. A beautiful Mother of Pearl rosette surrounds the sound hole and a double purfling outline encompasses the perimeter of the guitars top for added ornate refinement. Other features include a vintage 3-ply Tortoise Shell pickguard, a Rosewood fretboard with mother-of-pearl block inlays, and chrome open gear tuners.

Comments about Ibanez AV2C Artwood Grand Concert Acoustic Guitar:
The tone isn't too boomy or tinny. It seems to fall right in-between. Seems like a very balanced guitar. The body is slightly smaller than the average dreadnought, making it very easy to play, especially when switching over from an electric.
The mahogany finish will most likely be darker in person than what's pictured on the site. On here it appears a little more reddish where as the one I received is very dark brown with subtle highlights from variation in the wood.
Excellent value for the price. Would have bought it all over again had I known what to expect.
