The 2009 Anaheim NAMM Show will be no different in this regard says Irene Schvartsman of Ibanez in Bensalem, PA. “At this show, we have the first Exotic Wood model with a solid top. The EW50MPSENT features back and sides of monkey pod—an exotic wood similar in resonance and looks to koa—with a solid monkey pod top. With its solid top, the EW50MP’s rich, full sound will continue to improve with age.”
Two new standard top EW models, one with of a body of cocobolo wood and the other with spalted mango wood will join the EW50MPSENT at the Anaheim NAMM show. All three models feature the Ibanez SRTn preamp and the UST under saddle transducer by B-Band.
