As an industry leader in the use of exotic tonewoods, Ibanez continues to innovate with their new AEW Series. This fresh approach merges in the AEW40CD-NT, with a spruce top with cordia back and sides. This rare wood along with its rosette which features wooden marquetry with a trio of special wood, gives the AEW40CD-NT a bit of grandeur. The thinner, amplification-friendly body makes it a perfect choice for gigging singer-songwriters.A "soft" Florentine cutaway provides easy accessibility all the way to the 17th fret. The Fishman Pickup and Ibanez AEQ-SP2 Preamp deliver excellent reproduction and control of tonal characteristics and easy operation, while 1/4" and XLR outputs give you options for a variety of direct plug-in applications.
