The magic of Ibanez's Artwood series acoustic guitars comes from their combination of quality tonewoods and fine construction techniques. To make the Artwood AW54CE acoustic a great-sounding yet affordable guitar, Ibanez began by selecting the best materials for the money and then applied decades upon decades of guitar-crafting experience to them. When you pick up your AW54CE, you'll be amazed by how fine this affordable acoustic guitar really is.
Solid okume construction gives your guitar a rich sonic signature
With its strong fundamentals and ample sustain, okume is a bold choice for a big-bodied dreadnought. To help balance the naturally warm tone of okume, Ibanez employs X bracing on the AW54CE to give you wide-ranging tone that doesn't become too muddy or indistinct.
