Product Description

The AE255BT features baritone scale which provides a deep low tone and a long sustain. The combination of solid Sitka Sprucetop and Ovangkol generates a dynamic frequency range from deep lows to sparkling highs. It enhances the versatility of AE to match any playing styles, from aggressive strumming to fingerpicking. The slim comfort neck grip shape (in satin finish) also allows for the maximum amount playability across various types of playing styles. The fretboard inlay has a delicate but dynamic design, and the wooden inlays give a sophisticated feel to the guitar.

The compact, onboard active preamp simply features a mute switch to eliminate unexpected parameter changes during performances. This helps reduce the guitar’s size and weight, minimize body contact, and maximize the acoustic tone. The newly designed under-the-saddle pickup equalizes the volume of each string and delivers a well-balanced signal. The natural acoustic tone from this active circuit is remarkably stable and resists noise. It will support performances on stage, from solos to ensembles.

What is the height of performance and tone? You will find the answer in AE models.

The height of performance and tone. The Ibanez AE series was designed based on this concept. These days, there are many different genres of acoustic guitar music and styles of playing. Acoustic players need instruments that can cover the broad spectrum. Ibanez always keeps this in mind specifically from the players point of view in order to achieve the best-sounding and best-playing acoustic guitars possible for any kind of situation, whether recording in the studio or performing live. In 2016, the flagship AE900 was released after several rounds of R&D were conducted with professional artists and recording engineers. Their expert feedback and evaluations were integrated into the final product that took nearly 3 years to complete. By utilizing the knowledge and feedback gained from designing and crafting the AE900, Ibanez now expands the AE series.

The AE body shape features contemporary design elements to achieve high playability and create a well-balanced sound that adheres to the concept of the AE series. The combination of the specially designed Scalloped X Bracing and Tone Projection Back Bracing produces a versatile sound character. A rich sustain is provided, which works for both finger and plectrum playing.

What is your opinion of this product?
I gave this five stars, but want to get one flaw out of the way before I applaud too loudly. The wooden bridge pins are a poor idea. Shortly after I received the guitar and played one gig with it, I ordered strings from the company that endorses me. They make five different sets that are specifically designed for baritone guitars. While changing the strings (something I've done for 30+ years without troubles), two pins broke. I replaced them through my luthier, who explained that it's a common move for manufacturers to use wood scraps for pins. Change that and this will guitar will be perfect. I absolutely love the tone and look forward to the aging process improving it further. The action is spectacular. It sounds great plugged into my line array system. And, I'm having a blast exploring the possibilities that a baritone opens up, especially when I start messing with different tunings. It's truly like having a different instrument. This is not just another guitar.
