AE

Born from a long lineage of stringed instruments, the acoustic guitar is steeped in tradition. But music continues to evolve, and musicians demand inspiring new tools with which to carve out their own signature sound. In that spirit, we introduce Ibanez AE, our new flagship series of acoustic-electric guitars. Offering supreme tone and playability, Ibanez AE is the next step in a great tradition.

FEATURES

AE body shape

Designed for projection, balance, and comfort, the AE's perfectly crafted contemporary body shape offers the best of all worlds.

Scallop X bracing

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.

Advanced Comfort neck

The AE's "Advanced Comfort Grip" neck shape is an Ibanez original that provides superior comfort and playability. A slight, yet purposeful, asymmetric neck adds to the guitar's unique, natural feel.

Far-Infrared Low-Temperature Drying Process

In a kiln created especially for fine wood, the AE's fine tonewoods are dried slowly at approximately 40 degrees Celsius by a far infrared method. This wood-drying approach was chosen for its stress-free effect upon the materials, keeping them stable without negatively affecting the wood's resin component-factors that, in the end, impact tone.

Bone nut & 4mm bone saddle

The bone nut was chosen for its ability to transfer string vibration naturally. The thicker-than-ordinary 4mm bone saddle improves intonation accuracy.

Gotoh® Chrome SGS510Z tuners (18:1 gear ratio)

The Gotoh® SGS510Z machine heads offer incredible tuning stability.

AGP10 external preamp

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.
