Three knobs are located on the side of guitar in an inverted triangular configuration. When the controls are viewed with the guitar held vertically, the upper left-hand knob controls the magnetic pickup volume, the knob on the upper right-hand side controls the under-saddle pickup volume and the third knob at the bottom controls the contact pickup volume.

Ibanez AP11 Magnetic / T-bar Undersaddle / Contact pickups
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. The T-bar under-saddle pickup reduces noise and provides wide range of natural piezo-style sound. It also captures palm hits and delivers a bass drum-like response. Since it’s placed on the neck block, the Ibanez Block contact pickup is resistant to feedback and evenly captures percussive sound from the body to the neck. It also adds air and brightness to the piezo-style sound by capturing acoustic tones from within the body. The Contact pickup consists of three transducers facilitating organic individual note clarity and naturally reproduces percussive body tapping techniques. This pickup also adds an airy depth of tone and brightness to the amplified sound.
Ibanez Custom Electronics w/ Magnetic Pickup Volume, Undersaddle Pickup Volume and Contact Pickup Volume
Ibanez Custom Electronics amplify the signal of each pickup naturally throughout the entire tonal spectrum. Blending the sound of the three pickups allows the player to create a variety of tones to suit their particular playing style or genre of music.
Dual Outputs (Magnetic/Undersaddle/Contact pickup outputs)
Plugged into the endpin jack only: Magnetic pickup + Undersaddle pickup + Contact pickup with mixed output
Plugged into both the endpin jack and the open jack: Endpin Jack = Magnetic pickup output, Open Jack = Undersaddle + Contact pickup with Mixed output
Advanced Comfort Grip with Rounded Fretboard Edge
In order to achieve supreme playability, the neck was specially designed with Thin-C shape style comfort grip with fingerboard's rounded edge.
“Advanced Comfort Grip” neck shape is an Ibanez original that feels “just right” to most players. Part of its excellent feel is due to its purposeful asymmetry from the 1st fret to the 7th fret. After the 7th fret, the neck becomes symmetrical up to the body.
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.
