What Haworth Guitars Say:
There's something special about a tasty Auditorium acoustic and we at Haworth's believe they're all special, except the Ibanez AE205JR has a tree of life inlay! Consider Steve Vai wanting something similar in some categories to his Jem but with that natural touch, this is what we would've got.
This Ibanez AE205JR Acoustic Guitar has so many little touches which set it apart from the rest like the high quality open back machine heads and suave cutaway, as well as the mahogany back and sides with that delectable Solid Spruce Top. Ibanez, you've done it again. Welcome to the AE205JR
Here's what Harvey has to say:
"This is one of my favourite acoustics around at the moment"
Here's what Ibanez has to say:
Born from a long lineage of stringed instruments, the acoustic guitar is steeped in tradition. But music continues to evolve, and musicians demand inspiring new tools with which to carve out their own signature sound.
In that spirit, we introduce Ibanez AE, our new flagship series of acoustic-electric guitars. Offering supreme tone and playability, Ibanez AE is the next step in a great tradition.
