Born from a long lineage of stringed instruments, the acoustic guitar is steeped in tradition. But music continues to evolve, and musicians demand inspiring new tools with which to carve out their own signature sound. In that spirit, we introduce Ibanez AE, our new flagship series of acoustic-electric guitars. Offering supreme tone and playability, Ibanez AE is the next step in a great tradition.
