6-string Acoustic-electric Guitar with Solid Okume Top, Okume Back and Sides, Mahogany Neck, and Ovangkol Fingerboard - Open Pore Natural

A Great Value in a Solid-top Mahogany Acoustic-electric

The Ibanez Artwood AW54CE acoustic-electric guitar hits all the right notes. Acoustically, the AW54CE delivers big dreadnought tone that's nicely balanced by the internal X bracing. The solid okume construction gives you a great-looking instrument with a big, balanced sound that's ideal whether you're strumming or fingerpicking. With a Fishman under-saddle pickup and an Ibanez AEQ210TF preamp, you get natural-sounding amplification that's plug-n-play simple. You even get an onboard tuner. If you came to Soundselect for a great-sounding, smooth-playing acoustic-electric that's also a phenomenal value, we can highly recommend the Ibanez AW54CE

Artwood: high-quality tonewoods and amazing value

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.

Tune up, plug in, and sound great with this Fishman pickup system

Any gigging guitarist at Sweetwater will tell you that Fishman makes some of the best acoustic amplification systems around. The Ibanez AW54CE packs Fishman's Sonicore pickup, powered by the Ibanez AEQ210TF preamp gives you bass, treble, and volume controls to dial in a great tone fast. Best of all, the built-in tuner makes it easy to keep your instrument sounding its best.
