The Ibanez AEWC32FM acoustic-electric guitar is part of the Exotic Wood series from Ibanez, and represents a fresh approach to guitar design, merging exotic tonewoods with a thinner, amplification-friendly body. It's an excellent choice for gigging musicians and songwriters needing an affordable and good-sounding acoustic-electric guitar.
Flamed maple is the wood of choice for the top of the AEWC32FM, and Sapele for the back, and sides. The neck has a 20 fret Laurel fingerboard with white offset dot inlays and a 15.74" radius. The AEWC body has a maximum 2.75" depth and 15" width. A thinner body helps to minimize unwanted feedback during loud performances, a must-have feature for performing guitarists.
A gentle Florentine cutaway provides easy access up to the 17th fret, making it much easier to play the higher octaves with a minimum effort. A Fishman Sonicore pickup and Ibanez AEQ-SP2 Preamp deliver excellent audio reproduction and make controlling tonal characteristics an easy task. The 1/4" and XLR outputs give you options for a variety of direct plug-in applications to an external sound system or acoustic guitar amplifier.
The AEWC32FM pin-less bridge design permits fast string changes, helps increase resonance, and eliminates the need for bridge pins. The strings are inserted through the bridge, and over the compensating bridge, forming a straight path directly to the headstock.
