Ibanez AAD100E Acoustic-Electric Guitar - Open Pore Natural
Ibanez AAD100EOPN Advanced Acoustic represents an important step forward in the long and storied tradition of the acoustic guitar. In what amounts to a fully reimagined acoustic experience, this instrument was designed from the ground up to deliver a richer, brighter and louder tone with a wide dynamic range. With slightly larger than typical proportions, Ibanez decided to name this body shape Grand Dreadnought. This reinvented design achieves a superb, powerful sound and is extremely comfortable to play.
- Ovangkol fretboard for greater playing comfort
- Solid sitka spruce top provides an enormous frequency with shimmering highs, tight mids and a full-bodied low end
- Okoume back and sides generate a woody, warm tone when the guitar is played softly or finger-picked and provide punchy high-mids with a clear projection when strummed
Grand Dreadnought body
Through a rigorous R&D process spanning several years, Ibanez has reimagined the dreadnought from the ground up, pursuing the height of rich sound, robust low end and rich tone. This brand new body shape is called Grand Dreadnought. Proportionally, the Grand Dreadnought body is 5% larger than a standard dreadnought, allowing for more volume, richer tone and more powerful low end response. It's also extremely comfortable to play thanks to the extensive consideration given to its ergonomics.
Ibanez X-M Bracing creates a clear bottom and crispy treble sound with trimmed, warm midrange, providing providing wide dynamic range and great response. The carefully designed scalloped X-bracing along with the allocation of tone braces and finger braces transmits string vibrations efficiently through the bridge to the body.
Low Oval grip thermo aged nyatoh neck with rounded fretboard edge
The Low Oval neck grip is designed for easy chord strumming and the rounded fretboard edges provide superior playability. Thermo aging, a special drying process, makes the neck light and hard and provides stability and better resonance.
Functional tapered headstock
This headstock shape is the result of thorough research and investigation. Its tapered shape provides lighter weight as well as a straight string alignment, which enhances tuning stability and reduces any neck-twisting effects.
Ibanez AP11 magnetic pickup
The AP11 pickup is small, lightweight and positioned so it won't inhibit the natural vibrations of the top wood. The pickup generates a highly responsive sound with minimal feedback and delivers a lively response throughout the entire frequency range. The sound is transparent and reflects the guitar's natural acoustic tone while preserving presence and midrange. AP11 also works well with effects such as reverb, chorus and many others.
