Sometimes a guitar stands apart from the crowd. The Ibanez EW20SMENT EXOTIC WOOD SERIES Spalted Maple Acoustic-Electric Guitar is such an instrument, with singular looks and sound because it's made from exotic spalted maple. The grain patterns are striking, the result of a careful aging process. It's amazing to find an exotic wood guitar in this price range, and you won't find it anywhere for long, because Ibanez is limiting this guitar to a production run of 600.
For faithful reproduction of acoustic tone, a B-Band UST pickup is paired with the Ibanez SRTn preamp with notch filter and an onboard tuner. Tune anytime, anywhere. You'll also be ready for whatever connections are available; the EW20ZWENT is equipped with balanced 1/4" and XLR outputs.
Paired with the fine wood are high-end cosmetic appointments also found on guitars costing much more: an abalone rosette, Ibanez chrome die-cast tuners and a natural high-gloss finish. If you've been holding back on an acoustic guitar purchase because you haven't found the right features at the right price, your wait is over.
Exotic wood with a unique appearance and tone that stands out.

Picked this one as a retirement present from the wife. Aside from the beauty of the woods, it has an amazing sound plugged in. It has a wonderful low end tone as well. It doesn't resonate as well as a few of my other guitars...mostly in part to the high gloss finish. But it's still a great piece. The action is incredible for an acoustic...it plays nearly as easy as my strat.Bottom line....AWESOME.
One incredible guitar! Its so hard to believe that this doesnt cost five times more than it does. Striking sound as well as looks. You wont find a better deal on an acoustic anywhere. Id rather own this gem than any taylor. This re-energized my playing for me. I cant get over it.
All I have to say is I'm glad i got one before they sold out, this guitar is AWESOME!!!! It's just perfect, espically for the price it sounds beatiful and it looks just the same, I find myself staring at it as much as I play it!
I tried this out at local guitar shop and fell in love immediately. After being around Alvarez acoustics for a few years, this Ibanez is definately comparable. The sounds was full and warm, the action was low and the new was definately smooth. This guitar will be added to my collection shortly. Definately a GREAT buy. Recomended to anyone.
This Guitar Is AWESOME!!! The sound is outstanding(acoustic and plugged in-especially plugged in), Its looks Amazing except expect it to look a little more orange than in the picture. I have no complaints!
I tried so many guitars and this one just stood out to me. It has such a great sound and it looks wicked. Also the built in tuner is convenient.
Having worked in (at the time) the largest music store in Philly, I had the chance to play any and all the guitars I could ever desire. I also played professionally for many years. I picked this guitar up for my son and aside from the OBVIOUS beauty of the instrument, the sound and playability were just as impressive! Now I find it hard to hand back over to my son and I think I will be putting my own Alvarez on the market and buy one of these for myself before it is too late! Plays almost as easy as any of my electrics too! Great action, sound and it already has gotten a TON of comments on it's looks! One word for this guitar . . . WOW!!!
I spent three days playing the guitar in a music store that I work at. I was in love from the first but I had to make sure being this an Ibanez acoustic which aren't always the best. The guitar has a great presence and a wonderful bass. The Built and tuner is great and it can plug to two amps at the same time. It's an amazing insturment for the money.
I have played many acoustic guitars over the years. I just picked this one up to replace one that was out of commission. I instantly fell in love with the woodwork on the SMENT, then I picked it up. It played like a $1000+ guitar. Beautiful intonation, Full sound, and the action was FAST. I couldn't have asked for a more Perfect guitar, especially for the price.
First of all, this guitar caught my eye because it is unique; the spalted maple will definitely catch some comments. But, how does it play? My favorite guitar being a Washburn D10 because of it's warm lows and sustain and, after playing several "high-end" guitars, I have to say that the Ibanez EW20SMENT ranks among the best for playability. The action was perfect out of the box and even playing it through a run-of-the-mill powered mixer did not de-emphasize the sound. This one will be a keeper for me.
