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."
Thermo Aged™ Solid top w/Thermo Aged™ Spruce X bracing
Thermo Aged™ Solid top w/Thermo Aged™ Spruce X bracing delivers ample volume and an enormous frequency range.
Thermo Aged™ Solid Caucasian Spruce top, Mahogany back & sides
The AVC11/AVD11/AVN11 feature a Thermo Aged™ Solid Caucasian Spruce top with Mahogany back and sides. The combination of those provide a mature, very smooth tonal character from top to bottom with increased volume.
Ovankol produces a rich mid range with clear high end.
A bone nut and saddle provide optimal transference of the natural string vibration.
Ibanez Advantage™ bridge pins
These pins really are an advantage over old-fashioned pins. Advantage™ pins are easier to take out and easier to put in than standard pins. A special bulb-shaped end makes the pin easy to grip and also prevents the pin from being pushed in too far. Best of all, with Advantage™, the pin and string stay put.
