The spruce top yields crisp articulation and delivers a broad dynamic range, offering a versatile sound for players of any style. Its clear and loud characteristics can handle everything from light fingerpicking to more aggressive strumming patterns with ease. The sapele back and sides offer a consistently well-balanced sound, with a beautifully bright quality and a stunning top-end shimmer. Together, the mixture of timbers offers a versatile sound to accommodate a diverse range of playing styles, providing players with a great all-purpose electro acoustic guitar.
Along with its smooth design, the AEB105E’s maple neck construction provides a beautifully bright characteristic, creating a snappy attack in the midrange with a sizzling high end. When the strings are played hard, the wood adds extra layers of punch to the tone, while light to medium picking offers more clarity. The fingerboard is crafted from treated New Zealand pine, offering a smooth performance and a broad dynamic range. The treated condition of the pine helps bring out its natural fundamentals while enhancing its lifespan.
The 2018 Ibanez AEB105E comes equipped with a Fishman Sonicore pickup and Ibanez's AEQ-SP2 preamp, with a built-in tuner. The Fishman Sonitone pickup captures your acoustic's natural voice beautifully, clearly, and purely. The sound captured can then be tweaked via the on-board AEQ-SP2 preamp, offering a discreet side-mount located on the upper-bout, and enables players to easily achieve the right tonal balance. In addition, the preamp features an on-board tuner, providing quick and easy tuning whilst on the go or within live settings. The Ibanez Acoustic Bass is also equipped with a standard 1/4" jack, as well as a XLR output for plugging directly into a PA sound system. With both versatile sound options, this guitar is the perfect choice for gigging singer-songwriters.
