Thermo Aging

Ibanez has recently become the latest company to introduce thermo-aging technology to their guitar lines. The thermo-aging process is done by drying the tonewood at a high temperature in a low oxygen environment, a process called 'baking' or 'torrefaction'. This method helps the wood become lighter, and provides a deeper sound and more resonance.

Mahogany Body

The Artwood Parlor Acoustic Guitar features an all-mahogany body, which offers a lightweight instrument, as well as a beautiful tone. Mahogany's dense properties produces a bright, rich tone, with plenty of fullness. By using Thermo aged mahogany for the soundboard, players can achieve a focused sound with strong mids, which is great for recording and live work.

Parlor Body Shape

The AVN9-OPN Artwood features a Parlor body, which is slightly smaller than an average sized guitar. The Parlor shape offers a balanced tone with a powerful projection, and also delivers a perfect mid-range tone. This type of body shape has recently had a resurgence with modern players, due to its versatility and compact size, making it a favourite with travelling musicians. Its compact size also accommodates Folk and fingerpicking players, as its nipped in waist means it can be held closer to the body.


This stunning Parlor guitar is also equipped with a Spruce X brace design. This particular type of bracing structure involves both the X braces and asymmetric tone bars been scalloped. This inventive bracing allows for a thinner graduated top, allowing the soundboard to move more freely, providing warmth, clarity, and balance with dynamic midrange.

Real Bone Nut

A real bone nut is also included which offers excellent resonance and sustain compared to modern materials. A bone nut also delivers a very balanced tone, and will last a long time. In addition, this type of nut naturally self lubricates and helps you stay in tune for longer.


  • Parlor shape guitar allows for complex finger styles
  • Thermo Aged Solid Top and Spruce X Bracing delivers ample volume and an enormous frequency range
  • A bone nut and saddle provide optimal transference of the natural string vibration
  • D'Addario Nickel Bronze strings enhance the natural voice of Thermo Aged wood with incredible clarity, resonance and projection
  • Chrome Open Gear tuners with Butterbean knobs and 18:1 gear ratio
