A performance-friendly body and electronics with a rare tonewood for back and sides.
As an industry leader in the use of exotic tonewoods, Ibanez continues to innovate with their new AEW Series. This fresh approach merges in the AEW120BG-NT, with a spruce top and elegant bubinga back-and-sides. The thinner, amplification-friendly body makes it a perfect choice for gigging singer-songwriters.
A "soft" Florentine cutaway provides easy accessibility all the way to the 17th fret. The Fishman Pickup and Ibanez AEQ-SP2 Preamp deliver excellent reproduction and control of tonal characteristics and easy operation, while 1/4" and XLR outputs give you options for a variety of direct plug-in applications.
The exotic cordia, which is also included in the rosette marquetry along with rosewood and spalted maple, will give you a distinctive tone and appearance that will garner attention and inspire the imagination. Let yourself be captured by the grandeur of the AEW Series.

Comments about Ibanez Exotic Wood AEW120BG-NT Acoustic-Electric Guitar:
Besides looking great,this guitar plays great too.The bubinga wood is often called "african rosewood" because it shares many of the tonal qualities of rosewood.It is a bit heavier than rosewood and the grain is beautiful too.I like that this guitars neck is a 10" radius,making it very easy to chord with.I'm not fond of flat radius necks so this is great(for me)I love the florentine cutaway -you can really get up there,which is great if you use a capo-which I do-although you have to be a little more careful with the guitar so it doesn't get chipped.The spruce/bubinga combo makes a wonderful bright midrange tone I really like.Not as "big"of a sound as with a mahogany body but really gets those upper registers that most import mahogany/spruce guitars lack. Keep in mind that this is a 4'' thick body so you wont be getting the big volume,but it holds it's own unplugged.Plugged in IDK yet because I haven't,but I've only heard good things about this system.One more thing;this is a "grand auditorium" body shape,so it will be a tight squeeze sideways in a padded dreadnought case,so make sure if buy a hard-case(which you should) it's the right kind for this guitar.Set up was average,I had to tweak the truss rod (no more buzz)and the nut could use to be lowered a hair,no biggie plays great as it is.Tuners are good and solid-she stays in tune just fine.This guitar,like my Ibanez parlor guitar,is very comfortable to play,and not coincidentally,you will find yourself playing/practicing more often-which is the whole idea,right?
