Pau Ferro produces a well-balanced tonal character from low to high end.
Designed for projection, balance, and comfort, the AE's perfectly crafted contemporary body shape offers the best of all worlds.
The AE features bracing designed to project the guitar's complete sonic spectrum. From deep, robust lows; through a smooth, pronounced mid-range; to bright, articulate highs-the AE X bracing design delivers the complex overtones that are present in only the highest quality acoustic instruments.
The bone nut was chosen for its ability to transfer string vibration naturally. The thicker-than-ordinary 4mm bone saddle improves intonation accuracy.
Designed in collaboration with artists and professional sound engineers, the AGP10 is a stand-alone unit. In contrast to "onboard" electronics, this approach preserves the guitar's integrity, both acoustically and structurally, while still providing the performer easy access for on-the-fly adjustments.
Our goal in designing the AE was to minimize cuts being made into the body, as well as the size of the electronic components. The T-Bar undersaddle pickup features center position wired construction which helps to avoid disproportionate emphasis and equalize the volume of each string.
