The AE500NT is the flagship acoustic-electric guitar from Ibanez, designed specifically for the acoustic performer who demands uncompromising quality and their own signature sound.
Featuring contemporary design elements, the AE500NT's body shape achieves high playability and creates a well-balanced sound. The combination of the scallop X bracing and tone projection back bracing produces a versatile sound character. The resulting rich sustain which works for both finger and plectrum playing. The combination of Sitka spruce and rosewood generates clarity and a dynamic frequency range from deep lows to sparkling highs. From aggressive strumming to fingerpicking, the AE500NT has the versatility to match any playing style.
The AE500NT’s under-the-saddle pickup detects pure and natural acoustic tones, equalizes the volume of each string, and delivers a well-balanced signal. The compact, onboard active preamp simply features a mute switch to eliminate unexpected parameter changes during performances. This helps reduce the guitar’s size and weight, minimize body contact, and maximize the acoustic tone. The signal from this active circuit is remarkably stable and resists noise. It will support performances on stage, from solos to ensembles. In order to shape the AE500NT’s tone to best fit any situation, the outboard Ibanez acoustic guitar preamp AGP10 is the solution. It features an extremely versatile EQ as well as intuitive volume and gain controls, a notch filter, and a balanced output option.
