Ibanez Artwood AW54MINI Acoustic Guitar at a Glance:
  • Quality materials for a standout value
  • Mahogany delivers a rich sonic signature
  • Compact body style provides plenty of acoustic projection
Quality materials for a standout value

The magic of Ibanez's Artwood series acoustic guitar comes from its combination of quality tonewoods and fine construction techniques. Ibanez selected the best materials in this price range and applied decades of guitar-crafting experience to make the Artwood great-sounding and affordable.

Mahogany delivers a rich sonic signature

The Artwood AW54MINI's all-mahogany design produces strong fundamentals and ample sustain, imbuing this acoustic with a full-bodied sound. X-bracing gives the Artwood added clarity for wide-ranging tone that isn't muddy or indistinct.

Compact body style provides plenty of acoustic projection

The Artwood's small body style - smaller than a traditional dreadnought - provides full projection with a comfortable body size that is easy to wrap your arms around. Unplugged or miked, you'll appreciate the clarity and punch of your Artwood acoustic guitar every time you pick it up.

Ibanez Artwood AW54MINI Acoustic Guitar Features:
  • Compact body delivers full projection in a small-bodied acoustic
  • Mahogany back, sides, and top give the Artwood a rich sound with lots of sustain
  • X-bracing adds focus and low-end focus
  • Open-pore finish gives off a natural, rustic appearance
  • Mahogany neck with rosewood fingerboard for articulation and playability
  • Ivorex II nut and saddle ensure maximum string vibration for extended sustain

Truly a joy to play - INCREDIBLE value!

Picked this up at a store while vacationing and COULD NOT put it down. I tried a handful of similar sized acoustics from other brands as well as Martin's backpacker (and I'm QUITE the Martin fan, owning 2 already) and the tone of this thing combined w the playability and action... I was just blown away by this incredible instrument. The price is more than fair. I just wish it'd come with a gig bag, but hey, there are plenty of places to pick one of those up. Got this guitar back home w the rest of the collection and I STILL love playing it. This one isn't going to be limited travel. I truly love this guitar. Ibanez hit it out of the park with this one!

Perfect Parlor

For awhile now I have had wanted a parlor for convenient playing in my living room (parlor)...this guitar fit the bill perfectly. Solid mahogany top can't be beat...beautiful warmth and sustain is so good it's insane! Probably my favorite aspect of this guitar is the feel of it. I love the natural finish on the body and especially the neck. Great craftsmanship all around...this one is a keeper. I'll be enjoying this one for years to come.

ibanez AW54 mini OPN guitar

I have purchased three Ibanez acoustic guitars from Sweetwater in the past year. So I was not surprised by the quality of the AW54 Mini or the excellent delivery service when it arrived today. Although it does not have the complexity or the fullness of a Taylor GS Mini, the sound of the Ibanez AW 54 Mini is outstanding with a set of new Silk & Steel strings for a smaller body parlor size. The playability and comfort of the instrument for a small room or setting is perfect. It is definitely a keeper. I was surprised it did come with a matching strap button on the neck like my other Ibanez acoustics.
