The acoustic guitar is steeped in tradition. But music continues to evolve, and musicians demand inspiring new tools with which to carve out their own signature sound.
Introducing the Ibanez AE: Their flagship series of acoustic-electric guitars channel the very spirit of a vast music heritage, offering supreme tone and playability, and representing another great chapter in the acoustic guitar tradition.
Ibanez AE240JR Acoustic Electric Guitar Features
The Nyatoh neck provides a rich mid-low end.
Pau Ferro Fretboard:
Pau Ferro produces a well-balanced tonal character from low to high end.
Solid Okoume Top:
Solid Okoume top offers a full-bodied and warm mid-range and a bright tone.
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 Undersaddle Pickup:
The Ibanez T-bar Undersaddle pickup accurately translates that full sound to whatever amplification system you plug it into.
Ibanez Custom Electronics:
The compact, onboard active preamp features a mute switch to eliminate unexpected parameter changes during performances. This helps to reduce the guitar’s size and weight, minimize body contact and maximize the acoustic tone.
Pau Ferro Bridge:
The Pau Ferro 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.
Gig Bag Included: The Ibanez AE240JR comes with an Ibanez gig bag which is designed specifically to fit and protect this instrument.
Scalloped X Bracing:
Scalloped X bracing on the top provides responsive and balanced tone.
