The AVN9 has a sweet, musical midrange, partly thanks to its mahogany body and neck, which has no trouble fitting into a live or studio mix. And for added value and an unmistakably classic look, the Ibanez AVN9 Artwood Vintage includes a resonance-enhancing bone nut and saddle and vintage-inspired, open-gear tuners.
The Artwood Vintage series now showcases another vintage element by applying an “aging” process to the tone wood—“Termo Aged" tone wood, made by a special drying process at a high temperature which is commonly known as “baking” or “torrefaction”. Only choice selected and seasoned tone wood can be cured to Thermo Aged wood.
The wood is heated in a vacuum with a specific recipe for each kind of the wood in order to release water and decompose resin contained within the wood. As a result, Thermo Aged tone wood becomes light, hard and stable like tone wood dried for decades, while providing amazing response and a louder sound. The tone character includes a full-bodied low-end and a great smooth sustain in the treble strings which are common features of vintage guitars.
