Slimmer Body Acoustic-electric from Ibanez
Reimagining their popular AEG line, Ibanez is pleased to offer the improved AEG5012. Featuring the same slimmer body depth design of past AEG offerings, the AEG5012 is an ideal performance acoustic. A spruce top with sapele back and sides provide for rich, full tone. With this updated model, Ibanez has also added an okoume neck along with a purpleheart fingerboard for improved playability all around. And when you are ready to plug in, an Ibanez T-Bar II undersaddle and AEQ-TTS preamp kick out beautifully articulate amplified tone. Finally, for players who like to traverse the neck, the AEG5012 features a smooth, deep cutaway for easy access to those higher notes.
Stellar amplified tone
The placement of the Ibanez T-Bar II undersaddle pickup captures palm hits and bass drum-like tones — ideal for experimental, expressive styles of play. In addition, the AEQ-TTS preamp lets you tweak your amplified sound to suit various styles. And with its onboard tuner, you can stay in tune while you perform - a feature guitarists here appreciate!
AEG body shape feels great and keeps feedback at bay
The shallow body design of the AEG5012 is not only comfortable to play, but guitarists have also found it keeps feedback at bay when plugged in. The undersized body eliminates the boominess you get from larger-bodied acoustics, making it ideal for live performance as well as recording. And its undersized design means it's lighter, making the AEG5012 a perfect "campfire" guitar that travels easily.
