Crafted with a solid flamed Okoume top and flamed Okoume back and sides, the Ibanez AE295LTD has a distinct look and great, full-bodied tone with warm mid-range. Born from a long lineage and musical heritage, 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. In that spirit, we introduce Ibanez AE, our flagship series of acoustic-electric guitars, offer supreme tone and playability, and represent another great chapter in the acoustic guitar tradition.
Ibanez AE295LTD Acoustic Electric Guitar Features
Ibanez AP11 Magnetic Pickup
Comfort Grip Maple Neck with Rounded Fretboard Edge: The Comfort Grip Maple Neck contour and round edges of the fingerboard provide superior playability.
Macassar Ebony Fretboard: Macassar Ebony produces tight lows and mid range along with strong attack in the highs and quick response with rich sustain.
Jumbo Frets: Jumbo frets contribute to smooth playability, especially for single-note playing.
Solid Flamed Okoume Top: Solid Flamed Okoume top offers a full-bodied and warm mid-range and a bright tone.
Flamed Okoume Back and Sides: The attractive Flamed Okoume back and sides offer punchy and rich mid-range tones.
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.
Ibanez Custom Electronics with Volume and Tone Control
The guitar also features on-board treble and bass controls for contouring the tone, making it suitable for a variety of applications for modern players.
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.
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.
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.
Comfort Grip with 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.
