OVERVIEW

(Open Box) The warmth and classic vibe of a favorite guitar from the past.

The Grand Concert body shape of the AV4CE, 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 gives this guitar a true vintage vibe. The mahogany soft V shape neck in satin finish with a rosewood fretboard provides playing comfort. Open gear tuners with butter bean knobs (18:1 gear ratio) ensure accurate, stable tuning and help reduce the headstock weight, while bringing vintage vibe in its looks. Bone is chosen for the nut and saddle because of 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. The AV4CE is equipped with a Fishman Sonitone preamp system mounted in the soundhole to minimize additional cuts in the body that effect the sound of the guitar. This provides you the best of both worlds.

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 tone wood 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.

    Comments about Ibanez AV4CE Artwood Vintage Grand Concert Acoustic Guitar with Thermo Aged Top:

    I have played guitar since I was 12 years old, I'm 51 now. I've had lots of different acoustic guitars over the years Ovations, Taylor, Alvarez, Yamaha. Never had an Ibanez, I've researched the whole Thermo Aged process through Ibanez site and did not see the AV4ce anywhere. I believe Ibanez exlusively made the AV4ce for MF/GC. First impression: Beautiful, shiny, smooth neck, tuners are nice. The strings feel a little dead but I will change them. It almost looks too good to be true. A very nice clear warm sound from sound hole playing open chords, nice clarity playing barre chords too. Nice sound finger picking as well. Too good to be true? Now, for the moment of truth, plugged into a Kustom KAA30 acoustic amp. Same nice warm clarity but louder with volume knob. Size is a little smaller than dreadnought (Grand Concert size). I got this as a SDOTD special, took a chance, and I'm a little surprised and happy I made the purchase. I would gig with this guitar! I tested out the Ibanez AW54OPN at GC as well, and I want one of those too.

      Comments about Ibanez AV4CE Artwood Vintage Grand Concert Acoustic Guitar with Thermo Aged Top:

      Love it. Great tone. Great buy & quality. An all around choice for beginner or experienced player. Didn't care for the D'addario Nickel bronze strings, switched to D'addario Phosphor Bronze EJ16 lights.
