As an industry leader in the use of exotic tonewoods, Ibanez continues its innovation with the new AEW Series. This fresh approach combines a classic spruce top with an elegant, exotic tonewood back and sides. The thinner, reinforcement-friendly body of this new acoustic/electric range makes it the perfect choice for the performance of singer-songwriters. A "soft" Florentine cutaway provides easy access up to the 17th fret, and the Fishman pickup and Ibanez preamplifier provide excellent reproduction and control of sonic characteristics and ease of use. The exotic tonewoods give each model a distinctive tone and appearance that attracts attention and fires the imagination.
