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. Only choice selected and seasoned tone wood can be cured to Thermo Aged wood. The wood is heated in a vacuum with a specific recipe for each kind of the wood 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 which are common features of vintage guitars. The dreadnought body shape of the AVD9, along with the Thermo Aged Solid Sitka Spruce top w/Thermo Aged Spruce X bracing, delivers an enormous frequency range. Mahogany body back & sides w/Tortoiseshell binding gives this guitar a true vintage vibe. The mahogany soft-V shape neck in satin finish with a Ovangkol fretboard provides playing comfort.
A Fishman Sonicore Pickup accurately translates that full sound to whatever amplification system you plug it into, while the Ibanez AEQ-SP2 preamp provides the extra punch of on-board EQ, and the convenience of an easy-to-read digital tuner located on the upper bout. Open gear tuners w/butterbean knobs(18:1 gear ratio) ensure accurate, stable tuning and help reduce the headstock weight, while bringing vintage vibe in its looks. A bone nut and saddle are chosen for its ability to transfer the string vibration naturally.
