Performance ready. A solid top with plenty of sonic character. The AE315K feature Ibanez’s innovative AE body for maximum comfort, performance, and tone. Equipped with both scalloped X bracing and tone projection back bracing, it’s time to experience long-lasting sustain and superior projection.
Furthermore, with Custom electronics, you’re certain to experience a natural amplified tone that can easily cut through a live mix. A classy looking instrument with abalone inlays, stunning pickguard, and an intricate, specially designed wooden vine inlay. A guitar with playability, tone, and an appearance that all belies its price-tag.
Our goal in designing the AE was to minimize cuts being made into the body, as well as the size of the electronic components. The T-Bar undersaddle pickup features center position wired construction which helps to avoid disproportionate emphasis and equalize the volume of each string.
AE body shape
Designed for projection, balance, and comfort, the AE’s perfectly crafted contemporary body shape offers the best of all worlds.
Scallop X bracing
The AE features bracing designed to project the guitar’s complete sonic spectrum. From deep, robust lows; through a smooth, pronounced mid-range; to bright, articulate highs-the AE X bracing design delivers the complex overtones that are present in only the highest quality acoustic instruments.
Ibanez Advantage™ bridge pins
These pins really 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.
