Effortlessly switch between acoustic and electric

The Ibanez AC240EOPN Artwood acoustic-electric Guitar lets you easily switch from acoustic to electrified performance, and back again. Loaded with a Fishman Sonicore pickup and Ibanez's SST Shape Shifter preamp, you'll appreciate how these effortless transitions make live gigs and studio work a breeze.

Solid mahogany top for great tone that gets better

Sweetwater knows that the choice of top wood can make or break the sound of an acoustic guitar. For the AC240EOPN Artwood acoustic-electric, Ibanez chose a solid mahogany top. Chosen as much for its look as its tone, solid mahogany has a well-rounded, rich sound with excellent sustain and tonal depth. And because it's a solid-wood top, the tone will age gracefully, with enhanced harmonics and greater tonal balance as the years go by.

Artwood: high-quality tonewoods and amazing value

Ibanez's Artwood formula can be distilled down to two essential elements: tonewoods and value. The concept is simple. The Artwood Series offers you traditional, eminently playable acoustic and acoustic-electric guitars sporting high-quality tonewoods and innovative, great-sounding electronics. Fitted with a Fishman Sonicore pickup and an Ibanez SST Shape Shifter preamp with an onboard tuner, your Ibanez AC240EOPN Artwood will take you from home to studio to stage without a hitch.

Makes Practice Addictive

I fell in love with the all acoustic version of this one but opted for the electronics anyway. I only received it today but have already learned my first 3 chords.. even though my fingers ache I'm still picking it up again and again. The finish is perfect, the details like the abalone inlay are gorgeous, and it makes me sound better than I really am. I'm just a beginner but I'm glad I went for this value piece than a cheap disappointment. The built in tuner alone is worth the extra cost of the electronics imo, very accurate and convenient. Arrived in 99/100 condition, just a couple teeny tiny nicks on one of the corners, probably from the factory, and I'm talking millimeter size. Sweetwater was excellent, Nate took great care of me and they even threw in free strings and candy. Night and day from guitar center (I only went to them for a specific case and strap not carried by Sweetwater and both came with problems I have yet to deal with) Also love love love that Sweetwater let me pick my actual guitar and then save the pictures they took afterwards. 99/100 for Ibanez, 100/100 for Sweetwater!

Ibanez AC240EOPN

Simply put > The Best Overall and Most Versatile Guitar I have ever owned. This retro-Mahogany styled O-body sized acoustic-electric guitar offers more tone and versatility than imaginable and represents an almost incomprehensible value. With its vintage good looks and dovetail neck joint, solid Mahogany top, bone nut and saddle and the superb on-board electronics, I can't imagine ever being without this recently acquired guitar. Sound and tone are subjective, but I love the way this one whispers and screams when strummed or played finger-style and prefer Elixir or D'Addario EXP Light Phosphor Bronze strings. For those that need or want uncoated strings, perhaps, consider staying with the Phosphor vs. Regular Bronze strings. Anyway, just a truly incredible smaller-bodied and most comfortable guitar with a big, bold sound. Love, love, love it!!!!

great guitar

alot of attention in detail, bone nut, bridge, inlay, neck style, electronics, body size. For me. A lot of bang for the buck. (MAPLE) warm. Nice look.

The quality far out strips the price.

The guitar arrived in 5 days in great shape. The only set-up issue was the high action. I understand that they would rather send it out a little high, allowing the player to sand down the bone to set the action to their pleasure. The fret ends could use a little work but it’s certainly not a deal breaker and is playable with no attention to them at all. The fret flatness at the body joint show a little rise which could be an issue in years to come; as glue in necks age, this minor rise and flatness issue can happen. Any budget guitar can use a fret leveling, crowning and polish, in this case I won’t know until I lower the action a bit but initially it looks good. The on-board electronics work great. No issue with these. The unit does use AA batteries and not 9 volt. Didn't see that in the specs and I'm not sure about the comparable battery life, etc., time will tell I suppose. The finish and open pore is killer; I love it. In any case this unit plays wonderfully, sounds great and feels really good. At this price to quality point, you’d be hard pressed to find a better mahogany, parlor style guitar with the electronics as well. I have an Ibanez thin body nylon Chet Atkins style unit and an Ibanez Gibson 339 copy from ’83 and I must say I’m a fan of Ibanez. You really get a quality guitar for the money, spend a bit more on a proper set up and they stand up against any name brand for way, way less money. Never bought from Sweetwater before, I buy from Musicians Friend mostly. I now have a new vendor in Sweetwater. My contact, Ty Heimann gave me A+ service.
