Ibanez Artwood AWB50CE Acoustic Electric Bass Guitar Features
Featuring a cutaway Dreadnought body, a solid Sitka Spruce top with Mahogany back and sides, and a bone nut/saddle for increased clarity and sustain, the AWB50CENT delivers the low end at a price that won’t bottom out your bank account.
Electronics include a Fishman Sonicore pickup with an Ibanez SST Shape Shifter Preamp for complete tone control and a built-in onboard tuner provides quick, discreet tuning. Other features include a Rosewood fret board, Black ABS Body binding, Chrome Die-cast tuners and a natural low gloss finish.
The Artwood series is the embodiment of what Ibanez refers to as a modern approach to tradition. Cutting edge woodworking technology enables the guitar maker’s luthiers to reproduce the sophisticated bracing techniques of the one-of-a-kind instruments of yesteryear. While tradition is obviously the hallmark of the Artwood series, the company’s decades-long search for the ultimate in acoustic tone has contributed to design alterations that give Artwood a voice uniquely its own.

THE ACOUSTIC BASS YOU ALWAYS WANTED
Every bass player should have a high-quality instrument for those times when the acoustic guitars come out. The Fender CB-100CE Bass provides everything you need—great tone, impressive projection and versatile onboard electronics—all at an easily affordable price. Its dreadnought cutaway shape ensures that you’ll be heard and be able to comfortably reach every fret on the fingerboard (on a neck with a familiar Jazz Bass® profile). With great-sounding unplugged and amplified tone, the CB-100CE ensures that bassists can always be a big part of the acoustic session.
FISHMAN® PREAMP WITH BUILT-IN TUNER
A Fishman® pickup/preamp system gives your acoustic instrument peerless amplified performance, with a variety of onboard controls and no compromise whatsoever on pure, rich and resonant acoustic tone. The built-in tuner is conveniently placed right where you can see it, helping to keep your intonation right on the money.
Scalloped bracing is thinner than more conventional bracing. That means that the bracing pattern inside the guitar uses less wood, which means that soundboard mass is reduced. This lets the top resonate more freely, resulting in better tone with more nuance and greater projection.
GRAPH TECH NUT AND BRIDGE SADDLE
Graph Tech string nuts and bridge saddles enhance the sustain, clarity and tonal consistency of an acoustic instrument. Neither too soft nor too brittle, they eliminate troublesome string binding, and they deliver performance, workability and appearance that easily outdo other plastics and come remarkably close to real bone.
$ 299.99 $ 320.00The Classic Design series rounds out with the CB-60SCE, an acoustic bass that goes above and beyond anything in its class. This model makes use of the same slim-taper, easy-to-play neck profile found on all Classic Design guitars. Its solid spruce top and mahogany back and sides complement the concert-sized body for a smooth and articulate low end. The perfect companion for an ‘unplugged’ session, the CB-60SCE comes equipped with a flexible Fishman electronics system that’s well-suited to the stage or studio.
