The grand concert body shape of the AC340, along with a solid mahogany top and shorter scale, delivers a wide dynamic sound when strumming and a quick response when finger picking, thanks to the light weight Open Pore Natural finish. Mahogany top, back, and sides body construction creates a rich, bright and balanced tonal character.
Thermo Agedtone wood, made by a special drying process is used for both the bridge and bridge plate for amazing response. The bone nut and saddle were chosen for its ability to transfer string vibration naturally. Ibanez Chrome open gear tuners ensure smooth and stable tuning.
The Artwood series is the embodiment of what might be called the Ibanez modern approach to tradition. Cutting edge woodworking technology enables the guitar maker’s luthiers to reproduce the sophisticated bracing techniques of one-of-a-kind instruments of yesteryear.
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.
