AW102 Brown Violin Sunburst Red copyright sprite

The AW102 is an Artwood series acoustic guitar model introduced by Ibanez in late 2017. It was made in China and sold exclusively in China.

The AW102 features a dreadnought body shape with a solid spruce top on sapele back and sides with a high gloss finish. The soundhole is round with a simple black and white acrylic rosette. It has a mahogany neck with a 20-fret laurel fingerboard with binding and small white dot position markers. Components include a compensated bone saddle in a laurel bridge with black Ibanez Advantage bridge pins, a bone nut, and chrome tuning machines.

For 2019 the mahogany neck was replaced with nyatoh.

The AW100 is a nearly identical model with a natural finish and a pickguard.

The AW102 was discontinued after 2019.
