    Why buy the Gibson parlor when you can have the Ibanez AVN1
    Product Rating
    What is your opinion of this product?
    I have over 120 guitars in my collection, and around 15 of them are acoustics. I read a review on some site where a person made a comment saying that if you wanted a good acoustic you should not buy Ibanez; well phooey to them. I compared this guitar to only one of my acoustics, as the other two I tried comparing it to didn’t cut it. These were the Ibanez AEG10ii, and the Samick ST92, which did not have the presence or note extension to compete with the AVN1. I ended up comparing the AVN1 to my 1930/1931 Gibson L1 (one of my favorites), which is what I think Ibanez was going for as far as feel and general design. The L1 has a much thinner spruce top, mahogany sides, back, and neck, and a slightly larger body which is not as deep (3-1/2” top and 4” bottom) as the AVN1. The slightly deeper body of the AVN1 made up for the resonance the thin top L1 is known for, and gives a much greater presence, depth, and sustain than the L1 is capable of due to (again) the deeper (4" top, 4-1/8" bottom) body, and the capability of the guitar to use heavier gauge strings, as the L1 cannot handle the normal gauge strings used on the modern 3/4, Concert, and Parlor guitars (even the modern 1928 L1 from Gibson) to the point of the bridge being ripped out from the tension on the thinner material. The AVN1 is totally bound (unlike the Gibson), has bone bridge and nut, outer abalone sound hole ring and abalone fret and pin dots. The neck is flat black (the Gibson is stained to match the rest of the guitar), and the guitar has a high gloss finish where the Gibson is a medium gloss. The frets are medium, where the original L1 were small (normal) wire frets of the day. I am so happy that Ibanez decided to introduce this L1 type guitar, as I would NEVER shell out $3,300.00 on a Gibson1928 L-1 Blues Tribute, since I already have the one they are trying to copy, and with the thicker spruce top Gibson now uses, I can’t see where it could be much different than the Ibanez, other than cost. This is a great playing little guitar with a big guitar sound.
