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. Fueled by this, we developed Ibanez AE, our new flagship series of acoustic-electric guitars, designed specifically for the acoustic performer.

The AE body shape features contemporary design elements to achieve high playability and create a well-balanced sound that adheres to the concept of the AE series. The combination of the specially designed Scalloped X Bracing and Tone Projection Back Bracing produces a versatile sound character. A rich sustain is provided, which works for both finger and plectrum playing. With great clarity, the combination of Sitka Spruce and Rosewood of AE500 generates a dynamic frequency range from deep lows to sparkling highs. It enhances the versatility of AE to match any playing styles, from aggressive strumming to fingerpicking.

The newly designed under-the-saddle pickup detects pure and natural acoustic tones, equalizes the volume of each string, and delivers a well-balanced signal. The compact, onboard active preamp simply features a mute switch to eliminate unexpected parameter changes during performances. This helps reduce the guitar's size and weight, minimize body contact, and maximize the acoustic tone. The signal from this active circuit is remarkably stable and resists noise. It will support performances on stage, from solos to ensembles. In order to shape the AE500's tone to best fit whatever the musical situation calls for, the outboard Ibanez acoustic guitar preamp AGP10 (included with the AE500) is the solution. It features an extremely versatile EQ as well as intuitive vol/gain controls, a notch filter, and a balanced output option.
