The Ibanez AAD100E OPN is more than a Dreadnought, it's a Grand Dreadnought, a new format for even more volume and sonic power.
Ibanez has a huge tradition in the manufacture of acoustic instruments. The Japanese brand is known for combining tradition with modernity in its manufacturing processes, always respecting the needs of guitarists and the characteristics that differentiate their guitars: excellent construction and sound.
The AAD100E OPN is a semi-acoustic guitar with great projection and definition to play in any style, thanks to the Grand Dreadnought format developed by Ibanez, 5% larger than the traditional Dreadnought. It is an ideal sound volume addition for acoustic and amplified performances.
The top is in solid sitka spruce and the back and sides are in okoume, a wood originating in Equatorial Africa, known for its robustness and durability, warm sound and full of presence, perfect for dynamic interpretations, with great definition.
The top is supported by X-M design crossbeams for better acoustic projection and structural stability.
The neck is in Thermo Aged natural wood, with rounded edges for greater playability and comfort. The fingerboard is in ovangkol, an African wood similar to rosewood, which faithfully transfers the vibration of the strings to the body, creating a warm and natural sound.
Advantage string pegs feature a more practical and reliable design, allowing for faster string changes and better grip, while being easier to remove thanks to the rounded top that keeps them secure and vibration-free. . With a simple design, the Ibanez AAD100E has a very attractive appearance, where the texture and dark tone of the woods are highlighted.
For amplified performances, the Ibanez AAD100E has an Ibanez Advantage preamp with bass, mid, and volume controls that deliver a crisp, well-defined sound. You can tune whenever you want with the help of the built-in tuner, which is very easy to read. The pickup is a magnetic Ibanez AP11.
Ibanez is one of the three most popular guitar brands in the world. Its history began at the beginning of the 20th century manufacturing acoustic instruments, a tradition and knowledge that have been developed over the decades and which are applied in the construction of modern instruments of great quality, applying the latest technologies and the most sustainable materials.
The Ibanez AAD100E is a guitar designed to be more dominant in an ensemble or to be heard better solo, in lively environments, but always with great definition, whether in acoustic or amplified mode.
