The AEG Series' slender, single-cutaway bodies deliver powerful and balanced acoustic sound, unplugged or through an amp or PA system. These guitars combine easy playability, classic solid and sunburst finishes, and intuitive electronics to create a quality, workhorse acoustic guitar that will rise to any occasion. High quality Ibanez under-saddle pickups and Ibanez preamps with onboard tuners provide sparkling tones that sound great in any environment.
The 3pc Nyatoh/Maple Neck provides a rich mid-low end.
The Laurel fretboard provides a rich and warm tone.
Spruce remains the most popular wood for acoustic guitar tops, mainly due to its pristine tonal clarity.
Okoume back and sides
The Okoume back and sides generate a woody, warm tone when the guitar is played softly or finger-picked and provide punchy high-mids with a clear projection when strummed.
Ibanez T-bar II Undersaddle pickup
The Ibanez T-bar II under-saddle pickup reduces noise and provides wide range of natural piezo-style sound.
Ibanez AEQ-TTS preamp w/Onboard tuner
The small and simple preamp offers two controls: volume and shape. A natural acoustic sound is found in the center position on the shape knob and allows players to easily adjust from low, fat and powerful tones to a bright and crisp sound while using only one control. A new, easy-to-read onboard tuner with LCD (liquid crystal display) is located on the preamp.
The Laurel bridge transfers string vibration directly to the body, delivering a natural and warm tone.
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.
