An ode to the past with modern appointments, including Fishman Sonicore pickup and Ibanez preamp.
The Artwood Series was crafted to produce a traditional yet modern guitar. Technology moves forward at a frantic pace and the world of guitar craftsmanship is no different. In producing the Artwood Series, Ibanez has respected both the rich tradition of the acoustic guitar while adding modern interpretations in its continuing search for the ultimate in guitar tone.
The AW450CENT Artwood Solid Top Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric guitar features their Dreadnought body shape with single cutaway for easier access to all frets, a solid cedar top, mahogany neck (satin finish), back and sides, a rosewood fretboard and tortoiseshell body binding. It also comes with a bone nut to deliver a well-balanced sound, a bone saddle on a distinctively contoured rosewood bridge with Ibanez Advantage bridge pins, and chrome Grover open gear tuners with butterbean knobs. When you need some more amplification, the AW450CENT includes a Fishman Sonicore pickup with Ibanez AEQ-SP2 preamp and onboard electronic tuner.

Comments about Ibanez AW450CENT Artwood Solid Top Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:
While on stage... I accidentally broke my expensive guitar which I've been playing for about 12 years, and I thought I would Never be able to replace it, But I took a chance buying this one, and I'm so glad I did because this one not only plays better, but it sounds better than my old guitar which costed over 900 USD. Right out of the box it was set up perfectly, and the electronics/pickup sound amazingly rich & lush/ like 3D sound! The electronics are able to illuminate the nuances and articulation of my different styles of playing. The materials (Bone Nut & Saddle, etc.), and fine woods (Mahogany Neck, back, & sides, and the Solid Cedar top), which were used to make this guitar are high quality, and only usually found on more expensive models, The wood on the body has a semi-porous finish so that it 'breathes' and will become even more resonant over time! The neck feels Great and it has a smooth satin finish which allows my hand to glide freely without grabbing, like it would on a high-gloss neck especially when your hand gets warm/sweaty. This guitar is amazingly responsive & the resonant tones are well balanced and warm. I would buy another one in a heartbeat if anything ever happened to this one.
