Solid Thermo-Aged top for that broken-in sound right out the box.
The "modern approach to acoustic guitar tradition" has long been Ibanez's motto for the Artwood series. Artwood Vintage steps even further back in history and borrows the best features from highly desired vintage instruments.
The Artwood Vintage series, which includes the AVD11 Artwood now employs another vintage element by applying an “aging” process to the tonewood. The wood is Thermo Aged through a special drying process at high temperatures which is commonly referred to as “baking” or “torrefaction”. Only specially selected and seasoned tonewood can be cured using this process. The wood is heated in a vacuum with a specific process for each type of the wood, in order to release water and decompose resin contained within the material.
As a result, Thermo Aged tonewood becomes light, hard and stable, approximating the tonal characteristics of wood that has dried for decades, while providing amazing response and a louder sound. The tonal character includes a full-bodied low-end and a great smooth sustain in the treble notes which are common features of vintage guitars.
The AVD11 Artwood features a Thermo Aged solid Caucasian spruce top which also delivers a dry, vintage sound. Furthermore, a semi-gloss antique finish offers an even more classic appearance. The AVD11 Artwood’s dreadnought body shape, combined with its mahogany back and Thermo Aged spruce X bracing, provides a wide open resonant sound with a vivid tonal projection. The satin-finished, soft-V shaped mahogany neck provides increased playing comfort. An unbleached oil-impregnated bone nut and saddle were chosen for their ability to naturally transfer string vibration.
