The natural beauty and tone of zebrawood with a performance-friendly body and electronics.

As an industry leader in the use of exotic tonewoods, Ibanez continues to innovate with their new AEW Series. This fresh approach merges in the AEW40ZW-NT, with a zebrawood top and elegant zebrawood back-and-sides. The thinner, amplification-friendly body makes it a perfect choice for gigging singer-songwriters.

A "soft" Florentine cutaway provides easy accessibility all the way to the 17th fret. The Fishman Pickup and Ibanez AEQ-SP2 Preamp deliver excellent reproduction and control of tonal characteristics and easy operation, while 1/4" and XLR outputs give you options for a variety of direct plug-in applications.

The exotic zebrawood will give you a distinctive tone and appearance that will garner attention and inspire the imagination. Let yourself be captured by the grandeur of the AEW Series.

      Comments about Ibanez Exotic Wood AEW40ZW-NT Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      for the price I dont think you can beat these Ibanez acoustic/electrics.
      Pros: It looks amazing, lots of compliments there. playability and acoustic sound is very nice, sound good plugged in. Not like their high end guitars but still good. great for the money, but good by comparison. small er body is comfortable and this thing does not feedback even when jamming right in front of the FOH speakers.
      Cons: its overall sound is just not quite spectacular, it is good but does not have the fullness/brilliance that i was expecting.
