As a “modern approach to acoustic guitar tradition”, the Ibanez Artwood Series of acoustic instruments has long been a source of pride and a labor of love. Now with the new Artwood Vintage Series, Ibanez looks to the past for inspiration with their new line of historically influenced instruments.
The Tenor guitar has been around for about 100 years and is considered a “transition instrument” between Dixieland Banjo and 6-string swing guitar. Recently its popularity has begun to rebound as contemporary artists have adopted the instruments unique sound. Tuned in 5th’s, it’s considered akin to the violin and mandolin family of instruments and can be played using the same scales and chord shapes.
Guitarists will find it fun and easy to master and it makes a welcome addition to a wide variety of genres, including country, Irish, swing, jazz, folk and pop.
