Get This Guitar Now!!!
This guitar is awesome!!! I swear this is the best acoustic guitar that I've ever put in my hands in any price range. In addition to being absolutely beautiful to look at, not to mention being extremely comfortable to play, this guitar has the sweetest tone and most balanced sound I've ever experienced on an acoustic guitar. Oh and I forgot to mention the fact that it also sounds fantastic when played through an amp as well. It even sounds great with my electric guitar multi-effects pedal which really shocked me to be honest. I was not expecting that, but if you play around with multi-effects, it sounds fantastic with the clean/chorus type of effects, and freakin screams with the distortion effects! I really didn't plan on playing it as an electric a lot, but man it really does sound great! The acoustic sounds of the guitar itself when playing unplugged are amazing! The only compromise I can see with this guitar is the fact that it isn't as loud unplugged as some other acoustics (probably due to it being the mahogany top instead of being spruce). Maybe one other drawback is that this guitar is probably not one you want to bang around and take on a camping trip etc... So for those 2 drawbacks I listed, maybe just find an inexpensive beater guitar to fill that void for when you need such a guitar. For all the other times when you want to play something very nice at home, at a show, or at the recording studio, the Ibanez AW54CE - Open Pore Natural will be your best choice in my opinion.
