This follows the trend set by other manufacturers. Martin (VTS) and Yamaha (ARE) are two makers using similar technology to give the guitar a worn-in tone like an old guitar. Even Taylor used this on their latest 600 Series.

The 4 new models in the Ibanez AVTA series feature two dreads, a parlour and a concert body.

The AVC9 looks like it’s the cooked top sibling to the popular AC240. Solid mahogany top and laminate body.
