Ibanez AAD170CE 6-String Advanced Acoustic Guitar (Right-Hand, Natural Low Gloss)

The Ibanez AAD170CE 6-string advanced acoustic guitar takes the guesswork out of finding an affordable, great-sounding classical guitar that's easy to play.

X-M Bracing

After spending years of trial-and-error, Ibanez realized the out-of-the-box X-M Bracing to generate the ultimate sound standing out on the stage. The carefully designed scalloped X-bracing, the allocation of tone braces, and finger braces transmit the string vibration efficiently through the bridge to the body. The X-M Bracing creates the clear bottom and crispy treble sound with trimmed warm mid-range, yet provides a wide dynamic range and high response.

Advanced Access Cutaway

Its deep straight cutaway (from 18th fret) and shaved side enable amazing high fret access.

Low Oval Grip Thermo Aged Nyatoh Neck

The Low Oval neck grip is designed for easy chord strumming and the Rounded Fretboard Edges provides superior playability. Thermo Aged, a special drying process, makes the neck light and hard and provides stability and better resonance.

Functional Tapered Headstock

The newly designed headstock shape is the result of thorough research and investigation. Its tapered shape provides a lighter weight, as well as a straight string alignment which enhances tuning stability and reduces any neck twisting effect.

Ibanez AP11 Magnetic Pickup

The AP11 pickup is small, lightweight, and positioned so it won't inhibit the natural vibrations of the top wood. The pickup generates a highly responsive sound with minimal feedback and delivers a lively response throughout the entire frequency range. The sound is transparent and reflects the guitar's natural acoustic tone while preserving presence and mid-range. The AP11 also works well with effects such as reverb, chorus, and many others.

Ibanez Advantage Bridge Pins

These pins are an advantage over old-fashioned pins. Advantage pins are easier to take out and easier to put in than standard pins. A special bulb-shaped end makes the pin easy to grip and also prevents the pin from being pushed in too far. Best of all, with Advantage, the pin and string stay put.
