The Artwood series Ibanez AW535 Acoustic Guitar features the Ibanez modern approach to tradition with cutting edge woodworking technology enables the guitar maker’s luthiers to reproduce the sophisticated bracing techniques of one-of-a-kind instruments of yesteryear. The three piece rosewood/flamed maple back is a perfect example of a woodworking appointment you’d expect to find on a guitar costing two or three times as much.

While tradition is obviously the hallmark of the Artwood series, the company’s decades-long search for the ultimate in acoustic tone has contributed to design alterations that give Artwood a voice all its own.
The dreadnaught body shape of the AW535NT, along with the solid Sitka Spruce top, delivers player comfort along with enormous frequency range that offers wave after wave of shimmering highs along with tight mids and a full-bodied low end. There may not be a better illustration of why Ibanez takes so much pride in its modestly priced Artwood guitars than the AW535.
A richly textured Abalone rosette handsomely tops off the natural high-gloss finished top. Grover tuners ensure smooth, accurate, stable tuning.
