(Open Box) Special aging process and open pore finish gives tonewood more natural, voluminous, well-rounded tone.
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<br>“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.
The grand concert body shape of the AVC10MH, along with the Thermo Aged solid mahogany top delivers an enormous frequency range. Combined with a Thermo Aged solid mahogany back and Thermo Aged spruce X top/back bracing, the AVC10MH offers a wide open resonant sound with vivid tone projection. Herringbone purfling on the body, ivoroid bindings on body, neck and headstock, specially designed 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. Grover 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.
