Ibanez AAM50CE Advanced Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar Body

Advanced Auditorium Body

After extensive research into general Auditorium body shapes, Ibanez carefully designed the AAM50CE's Advanced Auditorium body. Through multiple prototypes, this new shape was optimized with a slightly wider waist moved closer to the neck. The expertly crafted Advanced Auditorium body of the AAM50CE, comprised of a solid Sitka spruce top and sapele back and sides, delivers a full, robust tone. Another forward-thinking feature on the AAM50CE is Ibanez's carefully designed scalloped X-bracing, which produces clear treble tones and trimmed, warm mids, while still allowing an impressively wide dynamic range and quick response. What’s more, the A.I.R.port player-facing soundhole lets you in on all the irresistible sonic charm the AAM50CE projects as you play.

Ibanez AAM50CE Advanced Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar Headstock and Neck

Tapered Headstock and Low Oval Neck

The AAM50CE has a tapered headstock that provides straight string alignment and tuning stability, while mitigating neck twist. Its smooth Low Oval neck grip that lets your hand glide easily up and down the neck during chord changes. This ergonomically designed okume neck profile facilitates quick, comfortable transitions between chord voicings, and features a gorgeous purpleheart fingerboard. Whether you're strumming open chords or intricate jazz shapes, this neck grip keeps your fretting hand relaxed.

Ibanez AAM50CE Advanced Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar Bridge

Thoughtfully Designed Bridge

The AAM50CE's purpleheart bridge lends even more resonance to your guitar. Thanks to Ibanez's clever Advantage bridge pins, changing strings on the AAM50CE is frustration-free. A bulbous end provides an easy grip so pins slide in and out of the bridge smoothly. The pins also seat firmly in the bridge to maintain proper string height and intonation over time. With its intuitive bridge design, you can swap out strings confidently and quickly.
