The Ibanez Fingerstyle Collection is perfect for players who are serious about taking their performance to the next level. Every detail is designed to cover a wide range of playing styles—whether you’re a traditional fingerpicker or at the forefront of modern percussive playing. With its tonal integrity and superior playing feel, the Ibanez Fingerstyle collection will unleash your creativity.
The Ibanez ACFS580CE features a specially designed Grand Concert body shape, which is thicker than a regular Artwood Grand Concert instrument, by a thickness of 5mm at the neck joint through to 9mm at the bridge end. The extra thickness provides a deep bottom end, yet retains a balanced tone. The selected solid alpine spruce top and solid pau ferro back and sides provide a sensitive tone and good clarity along with an enormous frequency range that offers wave after wave of shimmer highs, tight mids and a full-bodied low end.
The African mahogany and pau ferro 5-piece neck has enough durability for alternative and open tunings. The neck shape is also specially designed and features a 45mm nut width, comfortable thin neck grip for easy fingering and a round neck heel that allows for easy access to a high fret position. It comes with both undersaddle and contact pickups on the neck joint block. This dual pickup system has been developed to capture the string vibration through the whole body and neck, which provides rich acoustic tone and a dynamic percussive sound from the body and neck. Dual outputs (mono out/stereo out) allow the player to use the pickups individually or output a blend of the two. The Open pore semi-gloss finish gives a percussive resonance, perfect for creating “scratch” style sound effects. The Gotoh SG301 tuners (18:1 gear ratio) and unbleached oil-impregnated bone nut and saddle offer solid tuning stability.
