AEW

As an industry leader in the use of Exotic tonewoods, Ibanez continues to innovate with their new AEW series. This fresh approach merges a classic Spruce top with an elegant exotic tonewood back-and-sides. The thinner, amplification-friendly body of these new acoustic/electrics make them the perfect choice for gigging singer-songwriters. A "soft" Florentine cutaway provides easy accessibility all the way to the 17th fret. The Fishman Pickup and Ibanez Preamp deliver excellent reproduction and control of tonal characteristics and easy operation. The exotic tonewoods give each respective model a distinctive tone and appearance that will garner attention and inspire the imagination. Let yourself be captured by the grandeur of the AEW Series.

FEATURES

Multi scale

Equalized tension helps to create a more "alive", open tone. But the design also improves player comfort. The multi scale construction ergonomically coordinates with the way a player's hand angles as it moves up and down the neck, facilitating quick, comfortable playing action.

Grover® Chrome Die-cast Tuner w/half moon knob

Fishman® Sonicore pickup and Ibanez AEQ-SP2 preamp w/Onboard Tuner

Balanced XLR and 1/4" outputs

Ibanez Advantage™ bridge pins

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.
