Thermo Aged top wood and bracing with vintage appointments for classic feel and tone.

The grand concert body shape of the AV5CBK, along with the Thermo Aged Solid Adirondack spruce top, delivers a crisp and punchy sound with great definition. The AV5CBK offers a wide-open resonant sound with vivid tone projection. Abalone purfling on a black high gloss finished body, ivoroid bindings on the body, neck and headstock, specially designed gold mother-of-pearl fretboard inlay all contribute to this vintage feeling instrument. The mahogany soft-V shape neck in satin finish with a cultured maple fretboard provides playing comfort, while Grover open gear tuners with butterbean knobs (18:1 gear ratio) ensure accurate, stable tuning, help reduce the headstock weight and bring a vintage vibe to the AV5CBK's looks. A bone nut and saddle are chosen for its ability to transfer the string vibration naturally. D'Addario Nickel Bronze strings emphasize the natural voice of Thermo Aged wood with incredible clarity, resonance and projection.

Artwood Vintage Series
The “modern approach to acoustic guitar tradition” has long been Ibanez's catchphrase for the Artwood series. Artwood Vintage steps even further back in history and borrows the best features of highly desired vintage instruments.

The Artwood Vintage series showcases another vintage element by applying an “aging” process to the tonewood —“ Termo Aged “tonewood, made by a special drying process at a high temperature which is commonly known as “baking” or “torrefaction”. Only choice selected and seasoned tonewood can be cured to Thermo Aged wood. The wood is heated in a vacuum with a specific recipe for each kind of the wood in order to release water and decompose resin contained within the wood. As a result, Thermo Aged tonewood becomes light, hard and stable like tonewood dried for decades, while providing amazing response and a louder sound. The tone character includes a full-bodied low-end and a great smooth sustain in the treble strings which are common features of vintage guitars.
