Ibanez PA300E Ac-El Guitar - NSL Natural Satin Top, Low Gloss Back & Sides
FREE GUITAR INSPECTION!Your guitar will arrive ready to play.
Ibanez PA acoustic aims to bring a new level of fine-tuned playability and tone to modern fingerstyle players. This line features a uniquely shaped asymmetrical jumbo body with slightly more surface area on the upper side. This shape generates a rich low end and offers easier access on the treble side for tapping, making this an optimal design for incorporating percussive elements.
The bridge and body cutaway are also specially shaped, making them better suited as tapping surfaces so that multiple sounds and dynamic variations can be incorporated into percussive playing elements. The PA series also utilizes a multiple pickup system featuring a contact pickup and stereo outputs. This electronics package creates an incredible array of sounds and the pickups are positioned in prime locations to capture the multifaceted nuances of fingerstyle playing.

Asymmetric jumbo body with solid German spruce top
Developed for modern fingerstyle players, the asymmetric jumbo body features a low end-focused sound and tapping-friendly shape. A solid German spruce top offers sensitive tones and pristine clarity.
Pau ferro back and sides
Pau ferro back and sides offer well-balanced tone with a full-bodied mid and high range.
Modified X-M bracing
Several years of research and development went into the Ibanez X-M bracing design. The scalloped X-bracing features strategically positioned tone and finger braces, which transmit string vibration more efficiently through the bridge to the body, greatly enhancing the quality and projection of the sound. This modified X-M bracing design creates a highly responsive sound with a wide dynamic range, but it also emphasizes a focused low end, which perfectly complements modern fingerstyle playing.
25-3/4 inch scale
A 25-3/4" inch scale helps to maintain proper tension and pitch even while down tuning, a technique modern finger players often utilize. This scale length also delivers improved sustain.
Magnetic, under-saddle and contact pickups
The Ibanez AP11 magnetic pickup is small, lightweight and positioned so it won't inhibit the natural vibrations of the top wood. Its 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. The T-bar under-saddle pickup reduces noise and provides a wide range of natural piezo-style sound, also capturing palm hits and delivering a bass drum-like response. The contact pickup consists of three transducers facilitating organic individual note clarity and naturally reproduces percussive body tapping techniques. This pickup also adds an airy depth of tone and brightness to the amplified sound.
Ibanez Custom Electronics separate pickup volume controls
Ibanez Custom Electronics amplify the signal of each pickup naturally throughout the entire tonal spectrum. Blending the sound of the three pickups allows the player to create a variety of tones to suit their particular playing style or genre of music.
Dual pickup outputs with various output options
Plug into the endpin jack only for the mixed output of the all three pickups. Plug separate cables into each jack to get the magnetic pickup's output via the endpin jack and the mixed output of the undersaddle and contact pickups via the open jack.
5-piece African mahogany / pau ferro neck
The African mahogany and pau ferro 5-piece neck has enhanced durability.
Macassar ebony fretboard with jumbo frets
Macassar ebony produces tight lows and midrange along with strong attack in the highs and quick response with rich sustain. Jumbo frets contribute to smooth playability, especially for single-note playing.
Macassar ebony top loading bridge
For a better percussive sound, the Macassar ebony bridge features a top loading system without a bridgepin. It also offers a fast and easy method for string changes.
Gig bag included
Ibanez gig bags are made out of durable materials.
