AVD9CE Natural High Gloss Red copyright sprite

The AVD9CE is an Artwood Vintage series acoustic guitar model introduced by Ibanez in mid 2017. It is made in China.

The AVD9CE features a cutaway dreadnought body shape with a solid Thermo Aged Sitka spruce top with Thermo Aged spruce X bracing and mahogany back and sides with a high gloss finish. The soundhole is round with a black & white multi rosette and the top is bordered with tortoiseshell binding. It has a soft-V shaped mahogany neck with a 20-fret ovangkol fingerboard with white dot position markers. Components include a compensated bone saddle in an ovangkol bridge with black Ibanez Advantage bridge pins, a bone nut, a red tortoise pickguard and chrome Ibanez open gear tuning machines. Electronics include an AEQ-AP2 preamp with onboard tuner, a Fishman Sonicore undersaddle pickup, a 9V battery, and balanced XLR and ¼" outputs.

For 2018 the AEQ-AP2 preamp was replaced with an AEQ-SP2. For 2019 the mahogany back and sides were replaced with okoume and the mahogany neck was replaced with nyatoh.

The AVD9 is a traditional acoustic version. The AVC9CE is a similar model with a grand concert body shape with a mahogany/ okoume top and a shorter scale neck. The AVD11CE is a related model with a Caucasian spruce top w/ herringbone purfling and oil-impregnated bone nut and saddle.
