Marcin Patrzalek, known simply as Marcin, is a Polish acoustic guitarist, composer, and producer who started playing classical guitar aged 10. He is known primarily for combining percussive guitar playing with modern electronic production, as well as classical and flamenco techniques. This signature model features a nyatoh neck, massacar ebony fretboard, and solid sitka spruce top for shimmering highs along with tight mids and a full-bodied low end. Electronics include a Fishman Rare Earth Mic Blend Active Soundhole pickup.
The Nyatoh neck provides a rich mid-low end.
Macassar Ebony Fretboard:
Macassar Ebony produces tight lows and mid range along with strong attack in the highs and quick response with rich sustain.
Solid Sitka Spruce Top:
Solid Sitka Spruce top provides an enormous frequency range that offers wave after wave of shimmering highs along with tight mids and a full-bodied low end.
Pau Ferro Back and Sides:
Pau Ferro back and sides offer well-balanced tone with a full-bodied mid and high range.
Gotoh Machine Heads:
Gotoh machine heads provide super precision, smooth feel, and minimal back lush.
Macassar Ebony Bridge:
The Macassar Ebony bridge transfers string vibration directly to the body, delivering a natural and warm tone.
Ibanez Advantage Bridge Pins with Red Dot:
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:
It comes with Ibanez gig bag which is designed specifically to fit and protect this instrument.
X-M Bracing with a Reinforcing Wood Plate for Body Tapping:
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.
You can create scratch sound with this oil-finished, solid Sitka Spruce pad, which adds another flavor on percussive sounds.
