Ibanez AE255BT overview

  • 1Description

The Ibanez AE Series AE255BT is a baritone acoustic/electric guitar with a natural high-gloss finish and a single cutaway design. The instrument employs a solid Sitka spruce top and ovangkol back and sides. A set-in mahogany neck measuring 27.0" in scale is fit with a cultured maple fingerboard and a specially designed wooden inlay with a floral pattern.

For electronics, this guitar sports an undersaddle T-bar pickup and Ibanez custom electronics. The electronics have been streamlined, offering no tonal controls, in order not to interfere with the instrument's acoustic resonance and to work better with external preamps such as the separately-available Ibanez AGP10.

Strings are affixed to the headstock with chrome die-cast tuners and are secured to the body with a cultured maple bridge. Ornamental touches include walnut body binding and a sound hole rosette made of maple and abalone. This instrument is designed for the baritone range, which typically extends from B1 to B3. This range of instrument is particularly suited to roots and Americana genres. 

AE Body Shape
Designed for projection, balance, and comfort, the AE's contemporary body shape offers a pleasing sonic experience.
Scallop X Bracing
The AE features bracing designed to project the guitar's complete sonic spectrum. Robust lows, pronounced mids, and articulate highs—the scallop X bracing helps the guitar deliver all these qualities, as well as complex overtones.
Bone Nut & Bone 4mm Saddle
The bone nut was chosen for its ability to transfer string vibration naturally. The 4mm bone saddle improves intonation accuracy.
