Thermo Aged™ Solid Top and Spruce X Bracing
Thermo Aged™ Solid top w/Thermo Aged™ Spruce X bracing delivers ample volume and an enormous frequency range.
Thermo Aged™ Solid AA Adirondack Spruce top, Solid Mahogany back & sides
The AVD60 features a Thermo Aged™ Solid Adirondack Spruce top with Solid Mahogany back & sides. The combination of those provide a powerful and crispy sound with rich low end and mid range.
Cultured Maple fretboard & bridge
Cultured Maple is an engineered tonewood made up of Maple and epoxy. By mixing and compressing with epoxy resin, the wood becomes stronger and more stable, and offers a smooth feel and a solid yet fat sound with no dead points on the fretboard.
Bone nut and saddle
A bone nut and saddle provide optimal transference of the natural string vibration.
Grover® Chrome Open Gear tuners w/Butterbean knobs
Grover® open gear tuners w/butterbean knobs(18:1 gear ratio) ensure accurate, stable tuning and help reduce the headstock weight, while contributing to the vintage look.
Ibanez Advantage™ bridge pins
These pins really are an advantage over old-fashioned pins. Advantage™ pins are easier to take out and easier to put in than standard pins. A special bulb-shaped end makes the pin easy to grip and also prevents the pin from being pushed in too far. Best of all, with Advantage™, the pin and string stay put.
Simplified Graph Comparing Thermo Aged™ to Non-Thermo Aged Guitars
The Thermo Aged™ process makes the sound louder across the entire frequency range, especially the bass and treble areas. (The base line in the graph represents the sound character of Non-Thermo Aged guitar). Having a Thermo Aged™ solid back brings further enhancement to the sound along with the Thermo Aged™ solid top; even more bass, even more treble, and plenty of punch.
