Cross Over to Acoustic Playing with This Comfortable Ibanez Guitar
If you're a curious electric guitarist interested in dipping your toes into acoustic playing, Ibanez has a selection of "gateway" acoustic-electric guitars like the super-playable AEG10II. The comfortable and resounding mahogany neck holds and smoothly transfers your playing over to your spruce-topped hollow mahogany body in seamless execution. Your Fishman Sonicore pickup takes in your strumming and pumps it through Ibanez's AEQ-SP1 preamp that also comes with an onboard tuner. Your mixing electronics include three-band EQ knobs, a master volume knob, and a phase switch. You'll get a great feel for what acoustic-electrics have to offer, once you fire up your AEG10II.
A Gateway to Acoustic-Electric Guitars
The AEG10II is one of the best places for a guitarist interested in trying out acoustic-electrics to begin such a journey. Picking the right acoustic guitar can be an intimidating endeavor, especially if you aren't sure where you want to go. The tones of many different acoustics vary widely depending on their combination of woods, pickups, electronics, body shape and depth, neck, and many other factors. The AEG10II's smaller body makes for a nice fit, and the comfortable action on its note-sustaining mahogany neck will keep your fingers glued to the smooth rosewood fretboard of 21 frets. With this Ibanez, the switch between acoustic and electric is so seamless, you'll have little to worry about aside from your playing.
Dependable Electronics with Great Tone Control
Aside from having a well-built body, your AEG10II comes with a solid set of onboard electronics and controls that'll really give you a solid handle on your tone. Aside from a 9-volt-battery-powered tuner, your AEQ-SP1 preamp also provides three-band EQ knobs, a phase switch, and your standard master volume knob. Your Fishman Sonicore pickup will reproduce your playing well and without any unwanted tones as it reverberates through your AEG10II's composite of sapele and spruce.
Great Acoustic Electric Tone
With any guitar, your tone is going to be largely determined by the type of wood that makes up your axe. Comprised of a spruce top and sapele sides and back, your AEG-shaped body gives you a warm and rich sound with a fine touch of low end that's heard well, whether you're going acoustic or electric. Semi-hollow and hollow-body guitars get a bad rap for causing feedback, and can oftentimes be a bit tinny, but your AEG10II won't give you anything you don't want when you play through an amp or a PA system. The slightly undersized body also feels comfortable against you while you're on stage, in a session, or even lying back on your bed.
