Great Guitars Start with Quality Materials and Components

The sweet sound of the Ibanez Artwood AW400 acoustic guitar is due to its tone-packed combination of real solid Sitka spruce atop mahogany back and sides. It's a rich sound with plenty of articulation, and because it's a solid wood top its harmonics will become even richer over time. High-quality appointments like Grover tuners and real-bone nut and saddles give you precise, dependable performance even when you're playing for hours. Even the pickiest guitarists at Sweetwater appreciate the value you get with the Ibanez Artwood AW400, and we know you will to.

Ibanez Artwood AW400 Acoustic Guitar at a Glance:
  • Big, bold tone from a dreadnought body with X-bracing
  • This solid Sitka spruce top will sound even richer as the years go by
  • Dependable performance for years, thanks to high-quality components
Big, bold tone from a dreadnought body with X-bracing

There's something empowering about the robust tone of the Ibanez AW400, and it's perfect for accompanying vocals and other instruments. The dreadnought body style is a solid foundation for rich lows and plenty of high-end sizzle. And with the "X" bracing pattern, you've got enhanced projection that really helps your music punch through and be heard.

This solid Sitka spruce top will sound even richer as the years go by

Ask any recording engineer at Sweetwater and they'll tell you that older acoustic guitars sound more complex and vibrant than younger guitars, as long as they're made of real wood. As the years go by, the Sitka spruce top on the AW400 will settle in and its tone will develop more complexity and harmonic richness.

Dependable performance for years, thanks to high-quality components

Ibanez didn't make any sacrifices with the Artwood AW400, using high-quality components throughout to make sure you can enjoy it for years to come. The Grover tuners let you tune up with precision and give you stable tuning even during heavy playing sessions. And while many guitars in this class use a synthetic material for the nut and saddles, the AW400 uses real bone which never binds strings or develops string-breaking burrs or scratches.

Ibanez Artwood AW400 Acoustic Guitar Features:
  • Ideal acoustic guitar for playing solo or with friends
  • Comfortable dreadnought body style
  • Excellent projection and tonal balance from "X" bracing pattern
  • Rich, well-defined tone from the mahogany body and Sitka spruce top
  • Real wood top will increase in harmonic richness as the guitar ages
It's fun to strum your worries away with the Ibanez Artwood AW400!
