The AEWC4012FM features a grand concert body with a soft Florentine cutaway and an arched back. The top is laminated flamed maple with abalone purfling on flamed maple back and sides with a high gloss finish. The round soundhole has an abalone rosette. It has a mahogany neck with a 25" scale, 20-fret rosewood fingerboard with special dot position markers. Components include a plastic saddle in a rosewood bridge, Ibanez Advantage bridge pins, a plastic nut, and chrome Ibanez die-cast tuning machines with black buttons.
