The Ibanez AP11 Magnetic pickup is small and lightweight, and positioned not to inhibit the natural vibrations of the top wood. The pickup generates a highly responsive sound with minimal feedback, and reflects the guitar’s natural acoustic tone while preserving presence and mid-range. The AE295LTD acoustic-electric guitar also features on-board treble and bass controls for contouring the tone, making it a versatile option for a variety of genres. The lightweight, scalloped Macassar ebony bridge improves vibration efficiency for better resonance, as well as providing more flexibility in adjusting the action. It also includes Ibanez Advantage bridge pins, which have a special bulb-shaped end for easier gripping, and prevents the pins from being pushed in too far.
