The Exotic Wood series was something of an experiment for Ibanez. The aim was to create beautiful instruments from under-used tone woods, modifying the designs to suit the properties of the woods used. This olive burl electro-acoustic is one of the gorgeous guitars that came from that experiment! With its curvaceous, slightly wedge shaped body (designed to enhance lower mid response), abalone inlays, gorgeous cutaway and olive wood grain it’s certainly eye catching! It also sounds beautiful with a uniquely clear voice, perfect for picking out solos, clean fingerpicking or studio recording. The built in pre-amp has a phase reverse switch and a rich vintage sounding chorus effect, along with a 3 band EQ and notch filter for eliminating feedback when performing live. There’s also a tuner. This is not a particularly bass heavy guitar, but it’s extremely clearly articulated which makes it great for recording or feedback free gigs! The mahogany neck is combined with a rosewood fretboard and we’ve set it up in-store for a low action. We’ve also restrung this eye catching guitar with a fresh set of Ernie Ball Earthwood strings (medium light) so it’s all ready to play as soon as you get it home!
Cosmetically this guitar looks amazing and is in generally good condition apart from one ding to the side which is shown in the last two closeups. There are jack and XLR outputs but unfortunately only the XLR out works (this has been reflected in the bargain price). We will supply an XLR to 1/4″ jack cable free with this guitar so you’ll be able to plug straight into your amp, PA or mixes as usual. This also means that if you want a balanced output you can connect to a PA using a standard XLR cable.
This guitar is something unusual and deserves to be loved! Call in for a test drive between 10-5 any day except Wednesday or check out now to arrange affordable postage anywhere in the UK.
