I've basically been a Martin guy since my early twenties. Have always loved "the Martin sound", but lately thought of checking out a Gibson J-45-- just for comparison. Good Martins aren't cheap, but Gibson seems to be overpricing everything in their lineup. I saw this Ibanez AW400 online and liked the looks of it, and the description of features. For the price listed, thought I'd take a chance. I was very pleasantly surprised when it arrived. Gloss top, satin back and sides, good open tuners-- the brown in the sunburst top was a little darker than the pictures online, but that's fine. When I tuned it to D, as I do with every guitar I play, I was extremely happy with the sound I got, fingerpicking or flatpicking. Of course, the AW400 isn't a pricey Gibson, but I can think of a bunch of things I can do with the money saved. And when I go out to a bar gig, open mic, etc., I don't have to worry about a precious "investment". This is a working guitar that sounds and looks good, and that's good enough for me.
