The Ibanez AEG200 guitar in natural starts with a new preamp, an Ibanez AEQ-TTS. The small and simple preamp has only two control knobs, volume and shape. This at-a-glance tone control offers natural acoustic sound in the center position. It allows players to adjust the tone easily and enables them to go from low, fat and powerful tones to a bright and crispy sound while adjusting only one knob. A new easy-to-read onboard tuner with LCD (liquid crystal display) is located on the preamp.
The AEG200 comes with a simplified abalone rosette, Pau Ferro binding and ornamentation on the headstock. These finer details add a sharp and stylish atmosphere to the guitar.
Other features include a Solid Sitka Spruce top which contributes to powerful and beautiful tone, an Ibanez T-bar II Undersaddle pickup which equalizes the volume from each string and delivers a well-balanced signal, and special bulb-shaped Ibanez Advantage Bridge pins for easy string installation. The newly-designed Scalloped Bridge improves the efficiency of the top board vibrations, which contributes to a louder sound. The scalloped bridge offers more flexibility for the guitar's set-up.
The AEG, a compact body electric acoustic guitar with a slim neck has been well-accepted for its easy playability for more than two decades. Ibanez is proud to announce that the AEG series has been renewed with updated electronics and looks. The changes were based on the concept, “simple and easy control.”
