Ibanez unveils two new Artwood acoustics
(Dave Molter | Posted 2010-08-13)
Ibanez has introduced two new models to the Artwood Acoustic Guitar collection: the AC3000W and AW3000CEW.
The new AC3000W and AW3000CEW combine tradition, value, and quality and are versatile enough for both on stage and off. The AC3000WCNT’s Grand Concert body features a solid Spruce top and solid Mahogany back and sides with a natural high gloss finish. Perfect for finger-picking, this acoustic has a shorter 24.9 scale and a 44.5mm neck width at the nut for easier playing.
The AW3000CEWCNT features a Dreadnought body with single cutaway, a solid Spruce top, solid Mahogany back and sides, and a natural high gloss finish. It also features an LR Baggs Element Pickup and the LR Baggs EAS-VTC Endpin Preamp with Soundhole Tone and Volume Controls. A lightweight case is also included.
For a pure, rich “woody” sound, the two newest editions in the Ibanez acoustic line set the tone for a new standard in quality and affordable acoustic guitars.
The AW3000CEWCNT also includes Gold Grover tuners with Brown Pearloid knobs, an LR Braggs Element pickup and LR Braggs EAS-VTC Endpin Preamp with soundhole-mounted tone and volume controls, and a lightweight Dreadnought case. MSRP is $974.99 USD.
