While never having been largely associated with acoustic instruments, during the 1970s Ibanez was associated with one thing: high quality copies of american instruments. And during that time, Ibanez put out acoustic copies as well, including this M-340, modeled after a Martin dreadnought. Clearly though, this instrument greatly differs from a traditional Martin with its maple fretboard, giving this instrument a distinctive “all blonde” look. Despite its price and relative obscurity, this instrument plays really nicely, with a big and well balanced sound and a unique feel from the fretboard. The action is reasonable and there is very little resistance to speak off. The spruce top has some cracking from dry climate, but still looks good, and the flamed maple back and sides look striking as well. With only a few bumps and nicks, this instrument is in very good condition and ships in a hard plastic case.
