Product Description

The dreadnought body shape of the AVD9, along with the Thermo Aged Solid Sitka Spruce top w/Thermo Aged Spruce X bracing, delivers an enormous frequency range. Mahogany body back and sides w/Tortoiseshell binding gives this guitar a true vintage vibe. The mahogany soft-V shape neck in satin finish with a Rosewood fretboard provides playing comfort.

Open gear tuners w/butterbean knobs (18:1 gear ratio) ensure accurate, stable tuning and help reduce the headstock weight, while bringing vintage vibe in its looks. A bone nut and saddle are chosen for its ability to transfer the string vibration naturally. D'Addario Nickel Bronze strings emphasize the natural voice of Thermo Aged wood with incredible clarity, resonance and projection.

The 'modern approach to acoustic guitar tradition' has long been our catchphrase for the Artwood series. Artwood Vintage steps even further back in history and borrows the best features of highly desired vintage instruments.

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. Only choice selected and seasoned tone wood can be cured to Thermo Aged wood.

The wood is heated in a vacuum with a specific recipe for each kind of the wood in order to release water and decompose resin contained within the wood. As a result, Thermo Aged tone wood becomes light, hard and stable like tone wood dried for decades, while providing amazing response and a louder sound. The tone character includes a full-bodied low-end and a great smooth sustain in the treble strings which are common features of vintage guitars.

What is your opinion of this product?
I bought the Ibanez. AVD9 to take with me when I travel to Virginia to visit my daughter and grandchildren. My grandson got his first guitar for Christmas and I didn't want to travel there with my Martin's. I know with 2 young kids there I could see both wanting to hold and strum my D18 or DR Centennial especially my grandson. So I bought the AVD9 and was surprised out of the box it played easier than my Martin's when new with a nice low action and no string buzz and I flatpick with a heavy hand sometimes. Now it does not sound like my Martin's but for $399.00 it sounds good darn good. I replaced the plastic pins with bone pins and that helped the sound as did a string change to Martin SP medium/lights. That gave it a better high end the bass got a boost to but the bass even with the light nickel strings was good. The solid top is Thermo aged as I found with my DR Centennial that helps give the AVD9 a well played in sound. Fit and finish is real good the AVD9 is a,winner .
