OVERVIEW

Special Thermo Aged process and open pore natural finish gives this guitar a vintage sound right out the box.

The grand concert body shape of the AVC9CE, along with its Thermo Aged mahogany top with Thermo Aged spruce X bracing and a shorter scale delivers a wide dynamic sound when strumming and a quick response when fingerpicking, thanks to the light weight Open Pore Natural finish. The mahogany top/back/sides body construction creates a rich, bright and balanced tonal character, while the tortoiseshell body binding gives this guitar a true vintage vibe. The mahogany soft-V shape neck in satin finish with an ovangkol fretboard provides playing comfort. Open gear tuners with butterbean knobs (18:1 gear ratio) ensure accurate, stable tuning and help reduce the headstock weight, while bringing vintage vibe in its looks. A bone nut and saddle are chosen for its ability to transfer the string vibration naturally. A Fishman Sonicore Pickup accurately translates that full sound to whatever
amplification system you plug it into, while the Ibanez AEQ-SP2 preamp provides the extra punch of an onboard EQ, and the convenience of an easy-to-read digital tuner located on the upper bout.

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 now showcases another vintage element by applying an "aging" process to the tonewood — "Thermo 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.
