Grand Dreadnought body
Through a rigorous R&D process spanning several years, Ibanez has reimagined the Dreadnought from the ground up, pursuing the height of rich sound, robust low end, and rich tone. This brand new body shape is called the Grand Dreadnought. Proportionally, the Grand Dreadnought body is 5% larger than a standard dreadnought, allowing for more volume, richer tone, and more powerful low end response. It's also extremely comfortable to play thanks to the extensive consideration given to its ergonomics.
After spending years of trial-and-error, Ibanez realized the out-of-the-box X-M Bracing to generate the ultimate sound standing out on the stage. The carefully designed scalloped X-bracing, the allocation of tone braces, and finger braces transmit the string vibration efficiently through the bridge to the body. The X-M Bracing creates the clear bottom and crispy treble sound with trimmed warm mid-range, yet provides a wide dynamic range and high response.
Low Oval Grip Thermo Aged™ African Mahogany / Pau Ferro 5pc neck with Rounded Fretboard Edge
The Low Oval neck grip is designed for easy chord strumming and the Rounded Fretboard Edges provides superior playability. Thermo Aged, a special drying process, makes the neck light and hard and provides stability and better resonance. The African Mahogany and Pau Ferro 5pc neck has superior durability.
Advanced Access Cutaway (Platinum Collection)
The unique, reimagined Advanced Access cutaway offering some of the best and most uninhibited upper fret access on any Ibanez Acoustic.
Ibanez Custom Electronics w/ Magnetic Pickup Volume, Magnetic Pickup Tone and Contact Pickup Volume
Blending the Contact pickup with the Magnetic pickup provides more natural acoustic tone. This pickup combination enhances the depth of the sound and the tonal brightness. The guitar also features on-board treble and bass controls for contouring the tone of Magnetic pickup, making it suitable for a variety of applications for modern players.
Dual Outputs (Magnetic/Contact pickup outputs)
Plugged into the endpin jack only: Magnetic pickup + Contact pickup with mixed output
Plugged into both the endpin jack and the open jack: Endpin Jack = Magnetic pickup, Open Jack = Contact Pickup
Solid African Mahogany top
Solid African Mahogany top offers a full-bodied and warm mid-range and a bright tone.
Solid African Mahogany back and sides
Solid African Mahogany back and sides offer full-bodied warm mid range.
Functional Tapered Headstock
The newly designed headstock shape is the result of thorough research and investigation. Its tapered shape provides lighter weight, as well as a straight string alignment which enhances tuning stability and reduces any neck twisting effect.
Ibanez AP11 Magnetic pickup
The AP11 pickup is small, lightweight and positioned so it won't inhibit the natural vibrations of the top wood. The pickup generates a highly responsive sound with minimal feedback and delivers a lively response throughout the entire frequency range. The sound is transparent and reflects the guitar's natural acoustic tone while preserving presence and mid-range. The AP11 also works well with effects such as reverb, chorus and many others.
Macassar Ebony Scalloped bridge
The lightweight, scalloped bridge improves vibration efficiency for better resonance, as well as providing more flexibility in adjusting the action than usual bridge.
Hardshell case included (ROADTOUR)
Luminescent Side Dot Inlays
Luminescent side dot inlays line the side of the neck for more easily navigating the fretboard in low light environments.
Macassar Ebony fretboard
Macassar Ebony produces tight lows and mid range along with strong attack in the highs and quick response with rich sustain.
