Born from a long lineage of stringed instruments, 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. Fueled by this, Ibanez developed their flagship AE Series of acoustic-electric guitars, designed specifically with the acoustic performer in mind.
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. This provides rich sustain which works for both finger and plectrum playing. With great clarity, the AE305NT's combination of Sitka spruce and rosewood generates a dynamic frequency range from deep lows to sparkling highs. It enhances the versatility of the AE body to match any playing style, from aggressive strumming to fingerpicking. The fretboard inlay has a delicate, but dynamic design. The wooden inlays give a sophisticated feel to the guitar.
The AE305NT's 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 from 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.
