Ibanez AC340CE Artwood Cutaway Grand Concert Acoustic-Electric Guitar Natural Matte
The Artwood series is the embodiment of what might be called the Ibanez “modern approach to tradition.” Cutting-edge woodworking technology enables the guitar maker’s luthiers to reproduce the sophisticated bracing techniques of one-of-a-kind instruments of yesteryear.
While tradition is obviously the hallmark of the Artwood series, the company’s decades-long search for the ultimate in acoustic tone has contributed to design alterations that give Artwood a voice all its own.
The grand concert body shape of the AC340, along with the solid mahogany top and shorter scale delivers a wide dynamic sound when strumming, quick response when fingerpicking, thanks to the lightweight open pore natural finish. Its mahogany top, back and side body construction creates rich, bright and balanced tonal character. ”Thermo Aged” tonewood, made by a special drying process, is used for the bridge and bridge plate for amazing response. The bone nut and saddle were chosen for bone's superior ability to transfer string vibration naturally. Ibanez Chrome open gear tuners ensure smooth and stable tuning.
