Single Cutaway Dreadnought
The Ibanez AW54CE features a dreadnought cutaway body shape, which not only offers an enormous voice but maintains overall tonal balance. The dreadnought shape was originally designed for hard pick attack, however the AW54CE Artwood is built to handle many different genres and styles of play. The big body is ideal for players with a longer reach, and those more comfortable with the dreadnought size. The sheer volume the AW54CE Artwood can project makes it ideal for the singer/songwriter, as vocalists can really push their diaphragm to its max without losing the sound of the guitar, as it will sing as loud as you do. Its single cutaway design enables players to access more challenging chords higher up the fingerboard with ease, offering comfort and the freedom across the full length of the fingerboard.
The AW54CE Artwood features an all-mahogany body, which offers durability and delivers an incredibly rich warmth. As a top wood, the solid mahogany offers a natural compression, creating strong fundamentals with a clear and direct focus. Used as back and sides panels, the tonewood provides a meaty mid-range, producing punchy, woody tones with plenty of depth and complexity that will please most playing styles. Mahogany is used a lot in the acoustic world, because it is relatively economical, durable, attractive, easy to work with, and resonant.
Mahogany Neck & Rosewood Fingerboard
The AW54CE's neck is constructed from mahogany, offering durability and resonance. The reason why many guitar necks are crafted from mahogany is because the wood responds greatly to many different playing techniques and styles. The neck is topped with a rosewood fingerboard that delivers a warm, bright, sparkly tone that really shines through when using finger picking techniques. Its rosewood fingerboard offers a smooth and energetic playability, and is sprinkled with traditional dot fingerboard markers.
Ibanez AEQ-SP2 On-Board Preamp
The Ibanez Artwood comes equipped with an Ibanez AEQ-SP2 preamp and Fishman Sonicore pickup, making it perfect for the stage. The on-board preamp features rotary controls for bass, treble, and volume with the added convenience of a built-in tuner.
