The ever-popular Ibanez Artwood Exotic Wood Series is the blend of exotic tone woods and creative design that coalesce to produce instruments of rich, balanced tone and unique beauty. The Ibanez AEW40ZWNT is an EW body acoustic/electric with Zebrawood top, back & sides. With its alternating light and dark lines, the unique appearance of this instrument is truly stunning. Indigenous to Western Africa, Zebrawood is similar to Indian Rosewood with well-defined bass and trebles, and projects with excellent volume.
Electronics on the AEW51NT include a Fishman Sonicore pickup and an AEQ-SP2 preamp for complete tone control, 1/4” and XLR outputs, plus an onboard tuner for quick, discreet tuning. Other features include chrome die-cast tuners with black knobs, a rosewood fretboard and bridge, and Ibanez Advantage Bridge Pins for improved tuning stability. This beautiful instrument is finished off with maple body binding, a rosewood/spalted maple rosette and a high gloss natural finish.
