Amazing Acoustic Tone!

When it comes to lyrical tone, the Ibanez AC240OPN Artwood series acoustic guitar hits all the right notes. With a top, back, and sides all made of mahogany, the AC240OPN gives you the warmth and complex tone you need to play solo or perform with a full band. You'll get big sound too from this full-size guitar, with plenty of projection. That makes this a great instrument for coffee-shop gigs, couch strumming, and campfire entertainment as well. Generally speaking, if you need a great-sounding, smooth-playing instrument that's also a phenomenal value, check out the Ibanez AC240OPN Artwood acoustic guitar!

Solid mahogany top delivers great tone that gets better with age

Sweetwater knows that the choice of top wood can make or break the sound of an acoustic guitar. For the AC240OPN Artwood acoustic, 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.

Ibanez Artwood AC240OPN Acoustic Guitar Features:
  • Great playability, looks and sound - and tremendous value!
  • Grand Concert body with great tonewood selection
  • Solid mahogany top adorned with an abalone rosette, features not typically found on a guitar at this price
  • Open pore natural finish creates a distinctive look
  • Mahogany neck, rosewood fingerboard, bone nut
  • Chrome Grover tuners, Advantage bridge pins
For a great-sounding acoustic you can rely on, check out the Ibanez AC240OPN Artwood guitar!

Review Ibanez AC240OPN

I've played and owned many guitars over the years with a passion to get the most sound and quality I could attain. The Ibanez AC240OPN has given me a truly awesome guitar that I love playing, with its wide range of tonality and play-ability that has me reaching for it every day. I own several other guitars but find this guitar the one I prefer to play for hours. Creating new tunes and working on old works has become a pleasure with the ease and sound coming from this big box dreadnought. Highly worth the price and the Ibanez quality in craftsmanship.

Great Bang for the Buck

This guitar has a resonance that I have only heard before on $1K+ guitars. The low end growls, and the mid-range and treble are equally fine. The Bass is there, and you know it, but it also doesn't over power the mid and treble. I also replaced the bridge pins with Tusq pins, but I also replaced the saddle with a Tusq saddle, and Oh MY Goodness, this guitar definitely matches guitars whose name starts with a "M" or a "T", and you know who I mean. This guitar is very light. It would make an excellent beginners guitar. I like the wider nut - easier for my bulky fingers. It has a fast fretboard, probably due to it having a 16" radius. It has no manufacturer flaws like glue oozing out, or sharp fret ends. Very neatly manufactured. Very Very cool Blues Jamming guitar, and it is my GO TO guitar. I am very very pleased with this guitar, and hope to keep it for many years to come.

Blown Away!

I bought this AC240eop so I wouldn't have to drag my Taylor out on rainy days. I had done a lot of research and took a chance without ever seeing one. The picture doesn't do it justice at all. Beautiful wood on mine and sounds so awesome. I like the XLR input for direct plug in to PA system. Bone nut and saddle. It came with the action a little too high for me. What was a surprise is that it came with another saddle already at the perfect height once I removed the spacer. Changed the bridge pins to tusq and WOW, I am very impressed. I think for the money this one blows me away! Great guitar for any level.

My new favorite guitar!

I just got my Ibanez AC240OPN last week from Sweetwater. Chris Rice was my Sales Engineer and provided top notch customer service with follow up emails & phone calls! This guitar is my favorite by far, the best $299.00 I've ever spent! It plays like butter and the sound is unbelievable. On top of everything else, it looks STUNNING! I love the open pore body that shows off the natural beauty. It came set up perfectly, the strings are awesome so no need to change them which by the way I will keep buying the same strings because they sound fantastic. The Grover tuners are great, this guitar stays in tune. Bottom line is, this guitar is AMAZING!

This is well worth the price.

This guitar exceeding my expectations in sound, look, and feel. The natural open pour finish resonates really nicely and gives a very natural "woody" sound. Overtones are very perceptible but still maintains clarity and punchiness. The body size is more petite then your typically dreadnought shape which for me fits nicely in the arms. The wood grain is just simply stunning, especially in the solid top and upper neck. Honestly, I couldn't find a better guitar that met this price range. Ibanez did a really good job giving you a high quality instrument at a very reasonable price and when ordering from Sweetwater they'll ship fast, free, and with setup so its playable out of the box. Definitely would recommend.
