The Ibanez Artwood AW54CE acoustic-electric guitar hits all the right notes. Acoustically, the AW54CE delivers big dreadnought tone that’s nicely balanced by the internal X bracing. The solid okume construction gives you a great-looking instrument with a big, balanced sound that’s ideal whether you’re strumming or fingerpicking. With a Fishman under-saddle pickup and an Ibanez AEQ210TF preamp, you get natural-sounding amplification that’s plug-n-play simple. You even get an onboard tuner. If you came to Sweetwater for a great-sounding, smooth-playing acoustic-electric that’s also a phenomenal value, we can highly recommend the Ibanez AW54CE.

The magic of Ibanez’s Artwood series acoustic guitars comes from their combination of quality tonewoods and fine construction techniques. To make the Artwood AW54CE acoustic a great-sounding yet affordable guitar, Ibanez began by selecting the best materials for the money and then applied decades upon decades of guitar-crafting experience to them. When you pick up your AW54CE, you’ll be amazed by how fine this affordable acoustic guitar really is.

With its strong fundamentals and ample sustain, okume is a bold choice for a big-bodied dreadnought. To help balance the naturally warm tone of okume, Ibanez employs X bracing on the AW54CE to give you wide-ranging tone that doesn’t become too muddy or indistinct.

Any gigging guitarist at Sweetwater will tell you that Fishman makes some of the best acoustic amplification systems around. The Ibanez AW54CE packs Fishman’s Sonicore pickup, powered by the Ibanez AEQ210TF preamp gives you bass, treble, and volume controls to dial in a great tone fast. Best of all, the built-in tuner makes it easy to keep your instrument sounding its best.

  5. Don R.

    Better than expected – Even with 5 stars I was impressed. Nice tone, while pleasantly bright it also has really good low response. I don’t think I’ve ever had a guitar that sounded this full at the bottom.

  6. Lennia Daulton

    Great Guitar – This guitar has a great sound and stays in tune very well. The pickup and tuner both work great and battery has lasted a year.

  16. BR

    Surprised – I am visiting a friend in Austin, and she brought over this guitar for me to use during my stay. I thought it was a great looking guitar, but the action was so high you could not play it past.

  17. Jose Costa

    Ibanez – Unreal sound its for my son maybe set him on the right track for listening to how music is suppose to sound with quality gear again Thank U.

    Extreemly Surprisef – Ok, yes not like my old Gibson Dove. However, it sounds amazing and the XLR direct output is a much better quality signal then the 1/4″.

  19. Happy dad

    Very impressive for the price – First off, AJ Becerra has been an amazing Sales rep and has always been there for me with invaluable advice, understanding and a sincere heart for customer service. I try to buy through Sweetwater.

  20. Freefromit

    Its OK – out of the box the action was extremely high (A Clue disappointment lies ahead ), flat neck so forget about string bending. honestly i expected way better from Ibanez but you get what you pay.

  21. ps2000man

    Great Sounding Guitar – I walked into a store and heard a guy playing this guitar. The sound was so crisp and clear I thought it was a Martin. I asked what he was playing n told me it was the Ibanez AW54CEOPN.

  22. John Emanuel

    Update – I Shaved down the saddle to bring the action way down, very playable now, no fret problems as i feared. plugged in with effects and its loads of fun, im a regular monte montgomery (Wish) once.

  23. Edward Moore

    Nice guitar but lousy sticker – The sticker on the pick guard it affixed with a HIGH GRADE adhesivegood luck pealing it off without your new guitar looking terrible.

  24. Gerald “Moss” Bliss

    Sweet guitar, sweet deal – This is the best guitar for the price I’ve ever purchased. (Another vendor had it for the same price on eBay, but without the Sweetwater service and warranty.

    Great guitar for the money – Had mine for about a week absolutely love the sound really rich sounding guitar.

  31. Jared

    Solid guitar! – I play in a cover band and was looking for an acoustic electric to use for the softer material that my band plays live. I had tried this guitar out a few times and was shocked at how good it.

  32. Andrew

    Need a Dreadnought? Get This! – We truly live in amazing times when you can buy a guitar of this quality for this price. I’ve owned it for about a year, and am totally happy. Great neck, awesome smooth tone, and killer looks.

  33. Eric B.

    Excellent acoustic – I bought this guitar as an extra acoustic to use as a kind of beat around acoustic. Once it came in it exceeded playability and sound expected. Excellent purchase.

  34. Kevin

    This one is FAT !! F(fit/ finish) A (action) T (tone) – The acoustic tone of this guitar is beautiful (rich and full of warmth). The fit and finish is of good quality and the action and playability are great.

  35. Claytrell

    Maybe – First off, your site says it has bone nut and saddle, which it does not. Plastic. Tuners were pretty much junk, so I replaced them with $50 Grovers.
