With a solid sitka spruce top and pau ferro back and sides, the Ibanez AE315 delivers a crisp, articulate tone, a broad dynamic range and a well-balanced acoustic voice with great sustain and plenty of bite. The Ibanez AE315 also features an AE body, which offers superb projection, balance, and comfort, as well as being able to accommodate a wide range of genres and playing styles. Its AE body has deeper contours which offers an incredibly comfortable playing experience and combined with its mixture of timbers, the Ibanez AE315 can handle more subtle, lightly-approached fingerpicking styles to heavier, more aggressive strumming patterns with ease. Furthermore the AE315 is equipped with built-in Ibanez custom electronics, making it ideal for live and rehearsal environments. With stunning, intricate ornate details and a high-gloss finish, the Ibanez AE315 2018 ready for stage performance.
The Ibanez AE315 features the versatile and extremely comfortable body, the AE shape. Its 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 AE315 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.
The Ibanez AE315 features a solid sitka spruce top that yields crisp articulation and delivers a broad dynamic range, offering a versatile sound for players of any style. Its solid sitka spruce top has a clear and loud characteristic and is able to handle light fingerpicking to more aggressive strumming patterns with ease. The versatile solid top is coupled with pau ferro back and sides, delivering a tone that sits firmly between the bright and well-balanced tonality of maple and present mid-range of walnut, with less overtone content. Its pau ferro body also produces a resonant warmth, with a bright attack and a striking appearance.
Constructed from mahogany, the Ibanez AE315's neck delivers a fat, warm sound with plenty of resonance. Due to the density of mahogany, it is less susceptible to warping, offering stability and durability. In addition, the neck is topped with a maple fingerboard which adds a bright sizzle and great sustain to the overall sound. Its maple fingerboard also adds plenty of bite and is graced by a beautifully intricate wooden inlay for added elegance.
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 AE315 becomes ideal for the performing musician.
Unlike standard bridge pins, the AE315 2018 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.
The Ibanez AE315 2018 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.
