Exotic tonewoods used in the guitar industry are almost never used for entire bodies, as they are most frequently paired with a more common top, or common back and sides. There are, however, rare and extremely costly acoustic guitars made entirely of koa and other exclusive tonewoods, but the majority of brands, such as Ibanez, Dean and others, opts for the mixed approach. This means the guitars have back and sides, or tops made of an exotic tonewood, while the rest is made of the more "common" materials. Recently formed Ibanez AEW series explores this mixed approach with it`s initial three-piece lineup. AEW22CD is one of three pioneers of the perspective AEW range. It comes with a single-cut body with shape specially designed for the Acoustic Exotic Wood series. Back and sides are made of cordia, while the top is made of standard spruce. On the top, there is a rosewood-made bridge with a Fishman Sonicore piezo pickup beneath the saddle. Ibanez AEQ2T preamp is installed on the side of the body, facing the player. Mahogany neck rocks the classic 14th fret dovetail joint in the back and a 20-fret rosewood fingerboard on the top.
