Introducing the Ibanez AAD50CE Advanced Acoustic Grand Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar, a remarkable instrument that combines exquisite craftsmanship with powerful sound and versatile electronics. This guitar is designed to inspire and empower musicians with its superb playability, stunning aesthetics, and exceptional tone.
The AAD50CE features a Grand Dreadnought body shape, meticulously refined through years of research and development. This larger body size offers enhanced volume, a robust low end, and rich tonal characteristics. Whether you're strumming chords or picking intricate melodies, this guitar delivers a balanced and resonant sound that fills any room with its warmth and depth.
The X-M Bracing system, a result of meticulous trial-and-error, is incorporated into the AAD50CE to generate outstanding sound projection and clarity. The scalloped X-bracing, combined with carefully allocated tone and finger braces, efficiently transmits string vibrations from the bridge to the body. This results in a well-defined bottom end, crisp trebles, and a warm mid-range. The X-M Bracing enables a wide dynamic range and high response, allowing your playing to shine with exceptional articulation and expressiveness.
Featuring an Advanced Access Cutaway, this guitar offers easy access to the higher frets, enabling you to explore the entire fretboard without any hindrance. The deep straight cutaway and shaved sides contribute to the instrument's sleek design while ensuring comfortable playability, especially during those captivating solos and intricate chord progressions.
The functional tapered headstock not only enhances the guitar's overall aesthetics but also improves tuning stability. Its tapered shape reduces weight and promotes a straight string alignment, preventing any neck twisting effect. Enjoy precise tuning and reliable performance, allowing you to focus on your music without any distractions.
Equipped with the Ibanez AEQ-TP2 preamp, the AAD50CE offers versatility and convenience in live performances and studio recordings. This onboard preamp provides an extra punch of on-board EQ and features a convenient and easy-to-read digital tuner, making it a breeze to keep your guitar perfectly in tune. The 2-band EQ, located on the upper bout of the instrument, allows you to shape your tone with precision, adapting it to various musical styles and environments.
The Ibanez T-bar Undersaddle pickup accurately captures the guitar's full acoustic sound and faithfully reproduces it when connected to an amplification system. Whether you're performing on stage or recording in the studio, this pickup ensures that your natural tone shines through with exceptional clarity and fidelity.
