Ibanez GA35TCE Thinline Classical Acoustic-Electric Guitar

The GA35TCE's spruce top and AEQ210T preamp produce a big sound from a compact thinline body -- perfect for the classical player that needs a smaller guitar.
With a thinline classical design and unique cutaway body, the Ibanez GA35TCE Thinline Classical Acoustic-Electric Guitar offers easy playability as well as a high-end look and feel. The shallower body is easy to handle for a smaller player and also works to resist feedback. The GA35TCE combines the clear, vintage tonality of classical guitars at a price that won't break the bank.

The Ibanez GA35TCE features a spruce top and sapele back and sides that help enhance the guitar's warm, robust tone. This crystal clear classical also includes an under saddle pickup, as well as the AEQ210T preamp for maximum tone. The onboard tuner streamlines setups, and a high gloss finish creates a beautifully styled look.

"Great guitar at a fantastic price"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I own quite a few different brands and types of guitars; my collection covers a broad spectrum. This guitar has worked out very well for me thus far. It gives me the warm nylon string tone I'm looking for, while also providing the ability to plug in or not. The shape and feel is great. I was a bit concerned that it might be too small for me, but was pleased to find that it is sized quite appropriately. When comparing the sound-level production to a full bodied classical guitar, I would say that this produces a sound-level of somewhere around 80% of your typical non-electric acoustic. I am 100% satisfied with my purchase. It's a great guitar with an added bonus of built-in tuner (works great!).
