AWD102 Natural Red copyright sprite

The AWD102 is an Artcore Custom series hollow body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in mid 2006. It was made in China.

The AWD guitars have an arched top, double-cutaway, semi-hollow body design with a modern shape vaguely reminiscent of a Fender Stratocaster or some of Ibanez's Roadstar II series models from the 1980s. It has an arched top and a flat back.

The AWD102 features an arched, laminated flamed maple top with ƒ holes and ivory multi-binding on a flamed maple back and sides mated to a set-in maple and bubinga neck with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with ivory binding and special pearl position markers. Components include a pair of Ibanez Super 58 Custom humbucking pickups with gold covers mounted in ivory pickup rings, a Tune-o-matic style bridge with a Quik Change Ultra tailpiece with integrated fine tuners, a plastic nut, rosewood bell knobs, and Ibanez tuning machines with white buttons.

This AWD102 was discontinued after 2007.
