Ibanez Expands Artwood Vintage Lineup

Ibanez Expands Artwood Vintage Lineup

This new trifecta, comprising a Dreadnought, Grande Concert, and Parlor model, features solid mahogany tops with Mahogany back and sides.

Bensalem, PA (September 3, 2015) -- For 2015 Ibanez continues to expand their Artwood Vintage line to include new Vintage Mahogany Sunburst models that evoke turn-of-the-century elegance. This new trifecta, comprising a Dreadnought, Grande Concert and Parlor model, features solid mahogany tops with Mahogany back and sides to produce a full, well-balanced tone. Each model is fitted with bone nut and saddle for superior response, reproducing delicate fingerpicking or percussive strumming with equal distinction. A beautiful Mother of Pearl Rosette surrounds the soundhole and a double purfling outline encompasses the perimeter of each guitar’s top providing additional aesthetic charm. Other features include a classic 3-ply Tortoise Shell pickguard, a Rosewood fretboard with mother-of-pearl block inlays, chrome open gear tuners and high gloss finish. As the Ibanez “modern approach to acoustic guitar tradition,” the Artwood Series has long been a source of pride and a labor of love. With the Artwood Vintage Series, Ibanez has taken inspiration from the past to develop a line of engaging historically influenced instruments.

PRS Guitars and Ted McCarty family drop “Theodore” trademark objection, and Gibson agrees to drop opposition to PRS’s “594” and “Silver Sky Nebula” trademarks and trademark applications.

PRS Guitars yesterday announced that it has withdrawn its objection to Gibson’s registration of the “Theodore” trademark. In a press release, PRS stated it continues to hold dear and protect its long-standing agreement with Ted McCarty and the McCarty family regarding the exclusive rights to the “McCarty” trademark and to McCarty’s name and persona, first developed directly with Ted himself more than 25 years ago. After a series of private negotiations, Gibson has also agreed to drop its opposition to PRS’s “594” and “Silver Sky Nebula” trademarks and trademark applications.
