Cultured Maple is an engineered tonewood made up of Maple and epoxy. By mixing and compressing with epoxy resin, the wood becomes stronger and more stable, and offers a smooth feel and a solid yet fat sound with no dead points on the fretboard.
The AE315 features a Solid Sitka Spruce top with Pau Ferro back & sides. The combination of those provides smooth 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.
These pins really are an advantage over old-fashioned pins. Advantage™ pins are easier to take out and easier to put in than standard pins. A special bulb-shaped end makes the pin easy to grip and also prevents the pin from being pushed in too far. Best of all, with Advantage™, the pin and string stay put.
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.
