There are two knobs; the one closest to the player is the volume control for the magnetic pickup and the other furthest from the player is the volume control for the under-saddle-pickup.
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.
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.
AE body shape
Designed for projection, balance, and comfort, the AE's perfectly crafted contemporary body shape offers the best of all worlds.
Ibanez AP11 Magnetic Pickup
The newly designed 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.
Dual Pickup system with AP11 magnetic pickup and T-bar undersaddle pickup
AE325 also features versatile Dual Pickup system with AP11 magnetic pickup and T-bar undersaddle pickup. Blending undersaddle pickup on magnetic pickup, you can get more punchy and articulate tone which fits to lead play or adds the presence in the band ensemble.
•Plugged into the endpin jack only: Magnetic pickup + Undersaddle pickup with Mixed output

Luminescent Side Dot Inlays
Luminescent side dot inlays line the side of the neck for more easily navigating the fretboard in low light environments.
Comfort Grip w/Rounded Fingerboard Edge
In order to achieve supreme playability, the neck was specially designed with Thin-C shape style comfort grip with fingerboard's rounded edge.
The jumbo frets support easy fingering.
Flamed Okoume Back & Sides
The attractive, Flamed Okoume back and sides offer present and rich midrange tones.
African Mahogany/Pau Ferro 5pc neck
5pc neck construction boasts increased stability.
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.
