A versatile, contemporary guitar design with a simple pickup for plugged-in sound.
"The height of performance and tone." The Ibanez AE series was designed based on this concept. These days, there are many different genres of acoustic guitar music and styles of playing. Acoustic players need instruments that can cover the broad spectrum. Ibanez always keeps this in mind, specifically from the players point of view, in order to achieve the best-sounding and best-playing acoustic guitars possible for any kind of situation, whether recording in the studio or performing live.
In 2016, the flagship AE900 was released after several rounds of R&D were conducted with professional artists and recording engineers. Their expert feedback and evaluations were integrated into the final product which took nearly 3 years to complete. By utilizing the knowledge and feedback gained from designing and crafting the AE900, Ibanez has expanded the AE series with models like this AE2412 12-string acoustic-electric guitar.
The AE body shape features contemporary design elements to achieve high playability and create a well-balanced sound that adheres to the concept of the AE series. The combination of the specially designed scalloped X bracing and Tone Projection back bracing produces a versatile sound character. A rich sustain is provided which works for both finger and plectrum playing. The all-mahogany body of the AE2412 12-string generates a woody, warm tone with a soft response when fingerpicking and provides punchy high-mids with a clear projection when strumming. Furthermore, 12-string construction provides rich, open sound. The fretboard inlay has a delicate, but dynamic, design. The wooden inlays give a sophisticated feel to the guitar.
