The AEW series offers a fantastic combination of lesser known (and exceptionally pretty) exotic tonewoods. Ibanez are always developing new technolgies to offer guitarists new sounds and better instruments, the AEW51 has a wood mosaic back & sides rarely seen at this price point. Plus a slightly shallower body for improved performance when playing live.
The perfect blend of exotic beauty and practicality
As an industry leader in the use of Exotic tonewoods, Ibanez continues to innovate with their new AEW series. This fresh approach merges a classic Spruce top with an elegant exotic tonewood back-and-sides. The thinner, amplification-friendly body of these new acoustic/electrics make them the perfect choice for gigging singer-songwriters. The new AEW51 features artificial grafted wood on the back and sides. Normally grafted wood is reserved for very expensive instruments, but we were able to use new techniques to order to capture the look of grafted wood and make this model available at a very affordable price.
