Thermo Aging Ibanez has recently become the latest company to introduce thermo-aging technology to their guitar lines. The thermo-aging process is done by drying the tonewood at a high temperature in a low oxygen environment a process called baking or torrefaction. This method helps the wood become lighter and provides a deeper sound and more resonance. Choice of Tonewoods The Artwood Dreadnought features a solid sitka spruce top that is a common choice for guitar sound boards due to its ability to deliver a broad dynamic range and a crisp articulation. Sitka spruce is ideal for any type of playing including aggressive strumming and fingerpicking. As well as a spruce top this stunning guitar also features an Indian rosewood body which delivers the rich warm tone that rosewood is known for. Both tonewoods provide you with a versatile guitar that sits well in any mix. Dreadnought Body Shape The popular dreadnought shape is renowned for delivering low-end power a snappy midrange and strong clear treble notes. This stunning dreadnought acoustic is perfect for flatpickers as well as players who love the traditional guitar shape and tones.
