In Stock!

A Solid-top Parlor Guitar with a Rich Mahogany Voice!

Experience the mellow warmth and midrange response you can only get from an all-mahogany instrument - from an incredibly comfortable, easy-to-play parlor-size guitar. The AVN2 acoustic guitar features all-solid, all-mahogany construction. You also get a genuine bone nut, a rosewood fretboard and bridge, and beautifully understated appointments. The guitarists at Sweetwater can't put the AVN2 down, and we're sure you'll love it too!

Solid mahogany gives your voice room to breathe

When you combine its comfortable parlor-sized body and its solid mahogany construction, this Ibanez AVN2 acoustic guitar offers the tonal characteristics many Sweetwater singer-songwriters look for in an instrument. For starters, although the parlor-sized body projects well, its overall loudness competes less with your voice than that of a dreadnought or jumbo acoustic, allowing you to lay into the strings with all the expression you like, without worrying about drowning out your voice. Adding to that is the choice of solid mahogany for the top as well as the back, and sides of the AVN2, which delivers a warm and mellow voice that really fills out singers with tenor or higher vocal ranges.

Ibanez AVN2 Acoustic Guitar Features:
  • Parlor 2 body for supremely comfortable playing
  • Mahogany top with mahogany back and sides for warm, well-balanced tone
  • Rosewood fretboard and rosewood bridge
  • Classical mosaic rosette
Strum your guitar anywhere with the Ibanez AVN2 parlor guitar!

1930's guitar?

This is a very light, very loud, very well-built,very well set-up SOLID mahogony guitar. Compared to my 12 fret Martin 0-28VS (spruce, rosewood), it's about the same size and shape. The neck is Fender width. The Martin much wider. The Ibanez is louder and lighter. Martin has slightly better base response. Ibanez sound is MAHOGONY! Bright, in your face sound coming from the top of the guitar. Reminds me of my grandmother's 1924 Martn 2-17 steel string mahogany. What I would expect Robert Johnson to play. The Martin is all Martin. Nice, smooth, organ like compared to the mahogany. The Martin cost seven times as much. Compared to my Koa Taylor GS Mini, the Mini has better bass response, has a shorter scale, 14 fret, fatter body, plywood back and sides, electronics, and a better look (it is light colored, highly figured Koa), but the Ibanez does look TERRIFIC for mahogany. My Ibanez has contrasting grain. Sweetwater's picture was pretty accurate. Same width nut.The GS Mini came with a buzz at the 3rd fret o the low E (not from Sweetwater). The Ibanez was perfectly set up, as near as I can tell. Lower strings, yet no buzz no matter how hard you hit it. Cost a couple hundred more than the Ibanez due to Koa. The Ibanez is louder. That's the objective part. Now for the subjective. I love this size guitar and I love all three. You don't have to fight it. All three are very comfortable, plenty loud. The Martin and Taylor have good bass response (although both have fatter low E strings). The Ibanez bass response is acceptable and overall is louder than either (the Martin has old strings).. I just love the open pore finish. I built a Martin kit years ago, and because I'm a lousy builder, I couldn't get the stuff that fills the mahogany pores to stick and ended up with mostly open pore. I just love the look, the feel, and my guess is the weight of the filler may make it look better, but hurts the sound. Something really organic about it. No compromising the sound for looks. The Taylor has pretty much an open pore finish. The Martin is a serious guitar. A great guitar. Just sounds terrific. Nice shinny finish. Sweet. Beautiful. Rich. Really rich in every respect. Unbelievably loud for such a small box. But not as loud as the Ibanez. The Ibanez sound is more irreverant. Big attack. Hits your ear harder. I am not going to worry about scatches, finger nail marks, or really laying into it. Plus, it's loud. Great string definition. Wider range of sounds possible by changing your pick stroke. Each guitar occupies a slightly different space. The Martin smooth, sweet, wide neck. The Ibanez is bright and loud. The Taylor about half way between with built-in electronics and it came with a GREAT travel case. I just got the Ibanez but my guess is this is the one that gets picked up most. . .
