The Ibanez GA5MHTCE classical acoustic-electric guitar brings together exceptional playability, rich acoustic tone and stage-ready features. Whether you're a beginner or seasoned player, this nylon-string guitar provides comfort, classic sound and plugged-in versatility.

Okoume Neck Offers Smooth Playability

The GA5MHTCE features an okoume neck that gives you a smooth, comfortable feel across the fingerboard, making it easy to play barre chords and fast lead lines. Okoume is appreciated for its stability and sustain, while remaining lightweight. This adds up to a nylon-string classical guitar that plays with ease right out of the box.

Striking Purpleheart Fingerboard Accentuates Tones

You'll be captivated by the GA5MHTCE's eye-catching purpleheart fingerboard. Beyond its visual appeal, purpleheart contributes to the guitar's complex midrange, adding harmonic depth to each note. Combined with the crisp treble from the solid spruce top, the fingerboard creates an intricate nylon-string sound.

Sapele Top and Back/Sides for Warm, Resonant Tone

The GA5MHTCE gets its rich voice from a solid spruce top and sapele back and sides. Together, they produce a balanced tone with crisp highs, pronounced midrange and tight low end. Whether strumming chords or plucking melodies, the sapele helps the GA5MHTCE sing with a full-bodied voice.

Undersaddle Pickup and Onboard Preamp for Plugged-in Play

Thanks to the Ibanez undersaddle pickup and AEQ-2T preamp, the GA5MHTCE easily brings its pristine nylon-string tone to the stage. The pickup accurately captures the guitar's natural acoustic character, while the preamp provides three-band EQ for dialing in your amplified sound. An onboard tuner also makes on-the-fly tuning adjustments easy.

Player-Friendly Specs for Comfort and Playability

The GA5MHTCE's specs enhance its playing comfort right out of the box. The 14th fret neck joint provides smooth access to upper frets, while the 46 mm nut width feels familiar to steel-string players transitioning to nylon. Together with its lightweight body, the GA5MHTCE excels at delivering accessible and inspiring playability.
