Ibanez AAD170CE Acoustic-electric Guitar – Natural Low Gloss

6-string Acoustic-electric Guitar with Spruce Top, Okoume Back and Sides, Nyatoh Neck, Ovangkol Fingerbaord, and Electronics – Natural Low Gloss

Reimagined Dreadnought from Ibanez

As part of their new Advanced Acoustic series, the AAD170CE represents a bold step forward in design and tone. With the AAD170CE, Ibanez offers a grand dreadnought acoustic that has slightly larger overall dimensions. The result is not only a richer and brighter sound but a bump in volume! The AAD170CE features a solid Sitka spruce top with okoume back and sides, plus natural low gloss finish that really lets the natural wood tone come through. A Thermo-Aged nyatoh neck with ovangkol fingerboard delivers ultra-smooth response, making the AAD170CE ideal for both flatpicking and fingerpicking. In addition, a smooth cutaway gives you wonderful access to those higher notes up the neck. And when you are ready to plug in, an AP11 magnetic pickup mounted at the end of the fretboard and an Ibanez Custom Electronics preamp with volume and tone controls deliver outstanding amplified acoustic tone.

Extra touches bring big results

In addition to the AAD170CE’s slightly larger overall body, it comes with Ibanez’s X-M bracing design that enhances the treble and midrange and helps to ensure a clear bottom end. The X-M label comes from the pattern itself: an intricate overlapping of X-shaped and M-shaped support. Not only does the X-M bracing give you a boost in tone, it also helps to provide support and durability for the long haul.

Thermo-Aged neck for added comfort

Ibanez not only treated the nyatoh neck to its Thermo-Aged processing — which removes impurities from the wood — but they also cut it to a low-oval-grip profile, giving you a smooth, comfortable ride up and down neck as you explore chords and leads. In addition, the okoume fingerboard comes with rounded edges for even more comfort. All that strumming and picking are also supported by a scalloped ovangkol bridge, making the instrument lighter in weight while improving the overall vibration when you play.
