OVERVIEW

Special torrefaction process for Sitka spruce top gives you a vintage sound right out of the box.

The dreadnought body shape of the AVD9CE, along with the Thermo Aged solid Sitka spruce top with Thermo Aged spruce X bracing, delivers an enormous frequency range. Mahogany body back and sides with tortoiseshell binding give this guitar a true vintage vibe. The mahogany soft-V shape satin finished neck with an Ovangkol fretboard provide playing comfort. Open gear tuners w/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 on-board EQ, and the convenience of an easy-to-read digital tuner located on the upper bout.

The "modern approach to acoustic guitar tradition” has long been our 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.
