As a “modern approach to acoustic guitar tradition”, the Ibanez Artwood Series of acoustic instruments has long been a source of pride and a labor of love. Now with the new Artwood Vintage Series, Ibanez looks to the past for inspiration with their new line of historically influenced instruments.

The Tenor guitar has been around for about 100 years and is considered a “transition instrument” between Dixieland Banjo and 6-string swing guitar. Recently its popularity has begun to rebound as contemporary artists have adopted the instruments unique sound. Tuned in 5th’s, it’s considered akin to the violin and mandolin family of instruments and can be played using the same scales and chord shapes. Guitarists will find it fun and easy to master and it makes a welcome addition to a wide variety of genres, including country, Irish, swing, jazz, folk and pop.

With the AVT2ENT Ibanez introduces an acoustic/electric Tenor guitar to the Artwood Vintage family of instruments. This mini-dreadnought Tenor features a solid Sitka Spruce top, Mahogany back and sides and bone nut and saddle for a well balanced tone. A Fishman Sonicore pickup with a Fishman AEQ-SP2 preamp insures your audience will experience a well-balanced, natural sound. Also features a Mahogany neck, Rosewood bridge and fretboard, black and white ABS rosette, built-in tuner and a natural high gloss finish. Open-gear tuners complete the “ol’ time-y” vibe. Comes factory tuned C, G, D, A. Case not included.

It's a beautiful instrument, beautifully made


It has great tone and fine attention to construction detail. That said, of the 10 instruments I own, it is the second most challenging to play (Trinity College Irish Bouzouki is most challenging). The reason? The Ibanez neck is the quite narrow. My sloppy left hand position may be at fault here, but I had to re-learn how to properly hold the neck. After 54 years of bad technique it took several months to break old habits, but I finally did it. Maybe I should give myself 4 stars and the Ibanez 5. Given a choice though, I'd prefer a slightly wider neck. I play for fun, and that would make it easier (therefore more fun) for me to play.
