Ibanez PA230E 6-String Acoustic Electric Guitar (Natural Satin)

Ibanez PA230E Natural Satin Acoustic-Electric Guitar features the African Mahogany and Pau Ferro 5pc neck has enhanced durability. It also features Macassar Ebony that produces tight lows and mid-range along with strong attack in the highs and quick response with rich sustain.

Macassar Ebony Top Loading Bridge

For a better percussive sound, the Macassar Ebony bridge features a top-loading system without a bridgepin. It also offers a fast and easy method for string changes.

Asymmetric Jumbo Body

Developed for modern fingerstyle players, the asymmetric jumbo body features a low-end focused sound and a tapping-friendly shape.

25 3/4-Inch Scale

A 25 3/4 inch scale helps to maintain proper tension and pitch even while down tuning, a technique modern finger players often utilize. This scale length also delivers improved sustain.

Modified X-M Bracing

With several years spent on research and development, Ibanez ultimately developed the exciting, new X-M bracing design. The carefully designed scalloped X-bracing features strategically positioned tone and finger braces, which transmit string vibration more efficiently through the bridge to the body, greatly enhancing the quality and projection of the sound. This modified X-M Bracing design creates a highly responsive sound with a wide dynamic range, but it also emphasizes a focused low-end, which perfectly complements modern fingerstyle playing.

Ibanez Custom Electronics

Ibanez Custom Electronics amplify the signal of each pickup naturally throughout the entire tonal spectrum. Blending the sound of the three pickups allows the player to create a variety of tones to suit their particular playing style or genre of music.

Ibanez AP11 Magnetic / T-bar Undersaddle / Contact Pickups

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. The T-bar under-saddle pickup reduces noise and provides wide range of natural piezo-style sound. It also captures palm hits and delivers a bass drum-like response. The Ibanez contact pickup consists of three transducers facilitating organic individual note clarity and naturally reproduces percussive body tapping techniques. This pickup also adds an airy depth of tone and brightness to the amplified sound.

Dual Outputs

Plugged into the endpin jack only: Magnetic pickup + Undersaddle pickup + Contact pickup with mixed output. Plugged into both the endpin jack and the open jack: Endpin Jack = Magnetic pickup output, Open Jack = Undersaddle + Contact pickup with Mixed output.
