We have listed this item as clean used as this trade in has been a “case Queen” it’s whole life. Being a used item, it may have some minor play wear in the form of light pick scratches or dings (some of which are impossible to capture in photographs but we’ve done our best to do so with today’s technology). Rest assured, we have attempted to disclose any known imperfections to the best of our ability and the instrument will still perform as intended. Most instruments would pass for brand new from other shops. If you want a brand new one in a factory sealed box, let us know because we can do that too! 🙂
The Artwood Vintage series now showcases another vintage element by applying an “aging” process to the tonewood : “Thermo Aged” tone wood, made by a special drying process at a high temperature which is commonly known as “baking” or “torrefaction.”

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 Caucasian Spruce top, Mahogany back & sides
The AVC11/AVD11/AVN11 feature a Thermo Aged Solid Caucasian Spruce top with Mahogany back and sides. The combination of those provide a mature, very smooth tonal character from top to bottom with increased volume.
Ovangkol fretboard & bridge
Ovankol produces a rich mid range with clear high end.
Bone nut and saddle
A bone nut and saddle provide optimal transference of the natural string vibration.
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.
