The Artwood Vintage series now showcases another vintage element by applying an "aging" process to the tonewood : "Thermo Aged™" tone wood, made by a special drying process at a high temperature which is commonly known as "baking" or "torrefaction."
The guitar offers a rich and lively tone that is well suited for solo performance.The instrument features a mahogany Soft-V neck with a 25 scale an ovangkol fingerboard 18 frets and gold mother-of-pearl-inlays. Antique chrome tuners with oval knobs secure the strings to the headstock while an ovangkol bridge with Ibanez Advantage bridge pins anchors strings to the body. To bolster sustain and resonance the AVN11 makes use of an unbleached oil-impregnated bone nut and saddle. Additional features include herringbone top-board purfling and a wooden multi-rosette.
A perfect parlor guitar for any player level and an absolute joy to play. One thing remains true, Ibanez means quality.
