OVERVIEW

Solid Thermo Aged Adirondack spruce top paired with mahogany and vintage-inspired appointments for classic dreadnought sound and style.

The dreadnought body shape of the AV5DBK acoustic guitar, along with its Thermo Aged Solid Adirondack Spruce top, delivers an enormous frequency range. Combined with a mahogany back and sides, the AV5DBK offers a wide-open resonant sound with vivid tone projection. Abalone purfling on a black high gloss finished body, ivoroid bindings on body, neck and headstock, specially designed gold mother-of-pearl fretboard inlay all contribute to this vintage-feeling instrument. The mahogany soft-V neck with a cultured maple fretboard provides playing comfort. Grover open gear tuners with butterbean knobs (18:1 gear ratio) ensure accurate, stable tuning and help reduce the headstock weight, while bringing vintage vibe to the AV5DBK's looks. A bone nut and saddle were chosen for bone's ability to transfer the string vibration naturally. D'Addario Nickel Bronze strings emphasize the natural voice of Thermo Aged wood with incredible clarity, resonance and projection.

A case is sold separately.

Artwood Vintage Series
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 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.
