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.
Engelmann Spruce features a rich mid range and a vibrant tonal character with superior articulation.
The Ibanez AEQ210TF preamp is designed especially for thin bodies. Its simple 2-band control makes adjusting the sound easy and provides plenty of bottom. A phase switch for reducing feedback and a user-friendly onboard tuner are also provided.
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.
