Ibanez AE 6Str Acoustic/Electric Guitar w/Hardshell case - Natural High Gloss
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. In that spirit, we introduce Ibanez AE, our new flagship series of acoustic-electric guitars. Offering supreme tone and playability, Ibanez AE is the next step in a great tradition.

Pau Ferro fretboard & bridge
Pau Ferro produces a well-balanced tonal character from low to high end.
AE body shape
Designed for projection, balance, and comfort, the AE's perfectly crafted contemporary body shape offers the best of all worlds.
Scallop X bracing
The AE features bracing designed to project the guitar's complete sonic spectrum. From deep, robust lows; through a smooth, pronounced mid-range; to bright, articulate highs-the AE X bracing design delivers the complex overtones that are present in only the highest quality acoustic instruments.
Bone nut & 4mm bone saddle
The bone nut was chosen for its ability to transfer string vibration naturally. The thicker-than-ordinary 4mm bone saddle improves intonation accuracy.
AGP10 external preamp
Designed in collaboration with artists and professional sound engineers, the AGP10 is a stand-alone unit. In contrast to "onboard" electronics, this approach preserves the guitar's integrity, both acoustically and structurally, while still providing the performer easy access for on-the-fly adjustments.
T-Bar Undersaddle Pickup
Our goal in designing the AE was to minimize cuts being made into the body, as well as the size of the electronic components. The T-Bar undersaddle pickup features center position wired construction which helps to avoid disproportionate emphasis and equalize the volume of each string.
