OVERVIEW

Exotic wood with a unique appearance and tone that stands out.

There are a lot of guitars to choose from. The Ibanez EW20ZWE EXOTIC WOOD SERIES Zebrawood Acoustic-Electric Guitar is different. Singular in looks and sound because it's made from exotic African zebrawood. The grain patterns are striking, and while it's a difficult wood to work with, it is durable and ages very well. It's amazing to find an exotic wood guitar in this price range.

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.

Case sold separately.

        This guitar is really nice to play unplugged, but probably not the best if you want to plug it in. Maybe it's just my guitar that has problems, I'll have to get it checked out.
        The guitar itself is amazing. I wouldn't have expected such a non-traditional wood to have such good sound, but the tone rivals that of much more expensive guitars. The fretboard is nicely finished and the infinity inlay set in abalone is very attractive. The preamp, however, is horrible. I like using this guitar for just sitting around and strumming, but I would never consider using it for recording. Even when you cut the mids and highs, the tone is buzzy and trebly, lacking thickness. It is also surprisingly quiet when you run it through an amp or PA. The tuner, on the other hand, is excellent. It's dead-on accurate.
        Guitar quality--fantastic.
        Preamp--needs work.
        The price is a bit too much for an acoustic-electric with bad electronics.

        I bought this guitar from my local music store based on the glowing reviews on sites. But after I have owned the guitar 4 months some frets started buzzin, so i took it in to the store to have the frets fixed. The repair guy called me the next day and said that a bunch of frets were uneven and that he could not repair it. I called ibanez, who had decent customer service and they said its still under warrenty, props to them, but its gonna take 2 weeks just to sort it before they actually get to repairing and replacing it, plus i have to pay for shipping it there. Its kindof a hastle, cuz now i dont have a guitar for atleast 2 weeks and im out whatever shipping is, and its prolly not cheap. I felt obligated to share this, i dont know if i was unlucky but the quality is poor in my opinion if only last 4 months of light use.

                  I wanted something that wasn't really expensive, but also had things I wanted like: cutaway, onboard tuner, natural wood color.

                  Extra perks were: Good fret inlay design, the free delivery was two days even though it said 6 business days.

                  Buy it!!!
                  I've had this guitar for two years and can't be more pleased with it. Everyone that sees and hears it can't believe it's an Ibanez. This is my second Ibanez (my first became a Christmas present for my son who is equally happy with that one). For the money you can't go wrong.
                  Very well built and even has XLR output built in for those recording sessions you don't want to mike.
                  I give this one a 20, but 10 is as high as they go.

                  Originally had purchased a Dean Exoctica "Bubinga" which is also an exotic wood acoustic...had to take i back, neck was twisting...found out some of these guitars from Dean were doing this......took it back to my local guitar center where i traded for this Ibanez, the sound that rang out of it was amazing, the looks are amazing, and the best part...i didnt have to pay a $1000.00 for it....i compared it to some of the higher end acoustics side by side...for the money, this acoustic is a players dream....

                  This is the second Ibanez that i have added to my colection, after my first Ibanez the art100 in cherry, freaken awsome guitar for the money, I deceided to get a new acoustic I figured I might as well try Ibanez again. Im very glad to say I was not disappointed. This guitar plays well above its price range, it sounds amazing-acoustic or plug it in to a nice amp and it sounds like heaven. Can't go wrong with this one, the only thing I don't like is the tuner, not very good but that is the only thing.
