Hi! Help me decide: Ibanez EW20ASE or Ibanez AW40ECE

Hello there guys! My name is Daniel, I am from the Philippines and I am a 19 year old guitar player.
I have a bit of a dillema as I have just made a no0bish move. I had read several reviews on the internet regarding the above mentioned acoustics from Ibanez, the EW20ASE from the Exotic Wood line and its Artwood counterpart, the AW40ECE. While both guitars were reviewed very positively, no review really compared them against each other.

The no0bish mistake I had made was immediately going for the EW20ASE before trying the AW40ECE for myself as it ultimately comes down to the person's subjective preferences. I had tried the EW20 and found it to be a nice, fast-playing, good sounding acoustic but I can't help but wonder whether I would have preferred the AW40 more had I tested the two guitars side-by-side. So, bottomline, I need some help deciding whether I should sell my EW20 and buy an AW40 instead. A question I have is if the AW's solid top construction is really such a huge departure from the EW's figured ash top that I would have to sell the EW and get an AW. Another is the neck; I really love the electric guitar-like neck on the EW. Does the AW also have a fast, slim neck? I would really appreciate your help guys. THANK YOU!
