A beautiful guitar in both design and sound, the Ibanez AEW21VK-NT Electro Acoustic Guitar combines excellent woods to provide an acoustic guitar with both style and substance. You wouldn’t expect anything less from Ibanez’s Artcore series, though.
The body of the Ibanez AEW21VK-NT utilises a spruce top, for its detailed tone and dynamic response, along with it’s exceptional projection before you even plug the guitar into an amp. A classic top wood for acoustic guitars, this wood gives you a bright colouring, while the ovankol used for the guitar’s back & sides provides something a little different, with it’s detailed, thick grain giving a deep contrast from the top. It’s not just about aesthetics though. Related to rosewood, you will find a similarity in tone, but ovankol has a fuller mid-range and a slightly brighter top end. The well-rounded nature of ovankol makes it excellent for those who want an all-purpose tone, rather than a more narrowed palette of sound.
