The Ibanez GA1OAM 1/2 size classical acoustic guitar brings affordability and graceful playability together in one package. Part of Ibanez's classical series designed for players of any level, the GA1OAM has a slim nut width and comfortable neck that make it effortlessly easy to fret and play. Its spruce top, and meranti back and sides, deliver a wonderfully balanced and warm nylon-string tone. With its compact 1/2 size, the Ibanez GA1OAM is perfect for younger players and those with smaller hands.

Craft Warm, Resonant Tones With the Nandu Fingerboard, Meranti Back and Sides

The GA1OAM classical guitar achieves its rich, warm voice through the pairing of a nandu wood fingerboard, and meranti back and sides. Nandu wood has a reputation for lending nylon-string guitars a smooth, mellow timbre. Coupled with meranti, which boosts resonance for balanced tone, the GA1OAM sings with refined character. Strumming or fingerpicking will reward you with notes that bloom with nuance. The slim neck and comfortable string spacing make this an easy-playing classical guitar, while still retaining the traditional sound that makes nylon-strings so pleasing to play.

Hear Pristine Clarity From the Solid Spruce Top

Spruce is prized in acoustic instruments for its ability to produce supreme tonal clarity. The GA1OAM gets its crisp, focused voice from a spruce top. With the clear, bright tones of spruce, the rich character of the nandu fingerboard and meranti back and sides are perfectly complemented. Whether using the GA1OAM to play classical pieces that demand dynamic range or modern songs that want an intimate, detailed sound, the spruce top provides the ideal counterpoint to the guitar's overall warm, vintage voice.

Comfortable Playability From a Slim Neck Profile

A slim neck profile enhances this classical guitar's playability. The neck has a contoured, easy-to-grip shape that facilitates comfortable fretting and chording. The slim profile is ideal for smaller hands, especially useful for younger players being introduced to the nylon-string guitar. Along with the slim neck, the GA1OAM features a shorter 24.96" scale length compared to full-size classical guitars, making fretting even easier. Whether you're a beginner or seasoned guitarist, you'll appreciate how the ergonomic neck design makes playing this guitar a breeze.

Project Tones Naturally With a Maple Bridge

The GA1OAM has a maple bridge that adeptly transfers string vibrations into balanced, even resonance. Maple is a frequent choice of tonewood for acoustic guitar bridges due to its ability to convey warmth and sweetness. The maple bridge gives the GA1OAM excellent tonal balance across the sonic range, letting bass, mids and trebles all ring out with natural vibrancy. Play fingerstyle to hear the GA1OAM's notes blossom with nuance. Strum chords and listen to the sonorous, wholesome ring. However you play it, the maple bridge provides organic, uncolored tone projection.
