With a solid mahogany top and mahogany back and sides, the Ibanez AE245 produces a rich, full, and resonant tonality with a distinct mellow warmth. Its solid mahogany top offers a natural compression, creating strong fundamentals with a clear and direct focus. In addition, its stunning solid top is attached to mahogany back and sides, that deliver a meaty mid-range, producing punchy, woody tones with plenty of depth and complexity to please most playing styles. Furthermore, this all-mahogany instrument offers emphasis within the mid-range, and the bass and treble tones for a truly rich and powerful sound.
The Ibanez AE245 2018 features a versatile and extremely comfortable body, the performance-ready AE shape. The innovative AE body has superb projection and balance, offering versatility for players of all techniques. The body is slightly bigger than the traditional dreadnought size, and with its deeper waist, players can appreciate its response to the dynamics of both aggressive strumming to subtle, lighter fingerpicking styles. In addition, the Ibanez AE245 provides an extremely comfortable playing experience due to its deeper contours and venetian cutaway. Its deeper waist and contours enable players to sit comfortably with the guitar on the knee, offering better access, playability, and optimising comfort.
As well as offering a superb acoustic tone, players can benefit from the on-board custom electronics and Ibanez T-Bar undersaddle pickup. The discreet custom preamp allows players to plug into an amp, or directly into a PA system for larger events, and also features an endpin jack integrated preamp, which offers controls for mute and a battery checker. Ibanez wanted to reduce the amount of holes being cut into the body, which resulted in the subtle and sophisticated T-Bar pickup being placed under the saddle. Being unobtrusive as possible, the T-Bar features a center position wired construction which helps to avoid undesirable noise yet equalizes the volume of each string. With all this, the AE245 2018 becomes ideal for the performing musician.
With a neck crafted from mahogany, the AE245 2018 has a great response to many different playing styles, this is due to the nature of the wood, making it ideal for players of any style. In addition, the neck is topped with an ovangkol fingerboard that adds warmth with a little hint of bright-sparkle to the overall sound. Its fingerboard also offers a smooth playability and is graced by a beautifully intricate wooden inlay.
The Ibanez AE245 has been especially designed for projection, balance, and comfort. For added strength and tone, the AE245 is constructed with scalloped X bracing that enhances the guitar's acoustic projection. Players can achieve a full variety of tones from deep lows to articulate highs Its scalloped X bracing also reinforces the guitar's structure and prevents it from collapsing under string tension.
Unlike standard bridge pins, the AE245 Electro Acoustic features advantage bridge pins, that are easier to take out and easier to put in. Each pin features a bulb shaped end, which is not only easy to grip, but also prevents the pin from being pushed in too far, for a reliable performance.
Finally, the Ibanez AE245 features a real bone nut and saddle, for excellent resonance and sustain, allowing optimum string vibration transfer. Bone naturally self lubricates and helps you stay in tune for longer, as well as delivering a very balanced tone with longevity.
