The Ibanez EW20ASE electro acoustic guitar is part of the praised EW series. The EW Series pairs delightful exotic tonewoods with highly versatile electronics - including the Ibanez B-Band UST pickup and AEQ-SP2 preamp. As you'd expect from Ibanez, the build quality is superb and at this price you get an unbeatable trio: great looks, great sound and great price.
The Ibanez EW20ASE body has been constructed using figured ash for the back, sides and top. Ash delivers a deep low-end, with a healthy midrange energy that gives this model creamy warmth. The dreadnought body shape generates a huge amount of energy, whilst the ash soundboard resonates freely to deliver excellent projection. The top is reinforced using X-bracing to prevent buckling or warping over time, whilst retaining the ability to resonate without compromise. The sumptuous natural grain is proudly displayed for everyone to admire, whilst the intricate abalone rosette encloses the soundhole - all protected by a slender yet resilient layer of gloss.
Fitted to the body is a robust mahogany neck, providing a solid and stable playing platform to run your fretting-hand along. Married to the neck is a rosewood fingerboard that guarantees a sumptuous playing feel. With 22-frets at your disposal, and your path guided by the EW original designed position inlay, your fingers have a joyous playground to roam around in, whilst the shapely single-cutaway ensures that each fret is readily accessible.
The EW20ASE is equipped with a B-Band UST pickup, which provides a transparent reproduction of the guitar's timbre and the strings' resonance. Coupled with the AEQ-SP2 preamp, you have everything you need to take to the stage/studio in style.
The biggest advantage on the newly developed Ibanez AEQ-SP2 preamp is that adjustments are minimal, with bass and treble controls at your fingertips, and tuning up is a breeze thanks to the convenient onboard tuner. In addition to the 1/4" output jack, a balanced XLR jack is included for direct connection to PA. All that is needed is a 9V battery and you're all set.
The headstock is home to chrome die-cast tuning machines, each one carrying out the task of upholding tuning integrity dutifully. The body carries the rosewood bridge, which guarantees a seamless connection between the strings and body for optimum intonation.
The Ibanez EW20ASE electro acoustic guitar is a hugely versatile model that packs premium features at a highly affordable price. Whether you're an amateur or a pro, this is a superb model that is built by a company who craft superb guitars.

As a new guitar player I tried a lot of guitars in the store and this one felt best. I’ve had it a week and still love playing it. Great finish, very comfortable to play and sounds fantastic to my untrained ear. For the price, I didn't play any other guitar that ticked all the boxes.
A big thank you to the staff in Bangor, N. Ireland store who answered every stupid question with patience and knowledge. Especially Colin who demoed numerous guitars and amps to help me make a great choice.
