2019 model Ibanez AVD15PFR-OPS Artwood Vintage Pau Ferro Open Pore Semi Gloss

The “modern approach to acoustic guitar tradition” has long been the catchphrase for the Artwood series. The Artwood Vintage series steps even further back in history and borrows the best features of highly-desired vintage instruments. The Artwood Vintage series applies an “aging” process to the tonewood “Thermo Aging,“ a special drying process at a high temperature, commonly known as “baking” or “torrefaction.” Only specially selected and seasoned tone wood can be cured to Thermo Aged wood. The wood is heated in a vacuum 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, common features of vintage guitars.

The AVD15MPL features the Thermo Aged Solid Sitka Spruce Top which delivers a vintage dry sound. Furthermore, a semi-gloss antique finish offers even more of a vintage, aged appearance. Combined with a Maple back and Thermo Aged Spruce X bracing, the AVD15MPL provides a bright and wide open resonant sound with vivid tone projection. The satin-finished Nyatoh neck with a Thermo Aged Pau Ferro fretboard provides greater playing comfort and stability. The combination of a Pau Ferro fretboard, Pau Ferro back & sides body, Pau Ferro pickguard and even Pau Ferro bridge imbues this guitar with an exotic appearance. An unbleached bone nut and saddle were chosen for their ability to transfer the string vibration naturally.
