This Feedback-fighting Acoustic Sounds Great!The Ibanez AEF18E thin-bodied acoustic-electric guitar is just what you want to grab when it's time to play plugged in. Why wrestle with nasty feedback? When you're rocking out with a AEF18E guitar, you get the great acoustic sound you love, without worrying about teeth-rattling howls and screeches. At the same time, the acoustic sound of the AEF18E's spruce-topped mahogany body provides you with the rich bass and sparkling highs you need - no bag-of-nickels sound here! Forget feedback and get great sound, all with a beautiful Ibanez AEF18E acoustic-electric guitar.
Ibanez AEF18E Acoustic-electric Guitar at a Glance:
Spruce-topped mahogany provides sparkle, warmth, and projection
The combination Ibanez chose, a spruce top on a mahogany back and sides, has been a favorite among songwriters and live performers since the beginning of modern American music. Together, these tonewoods give the AEF18E acoustic-electric guitar warm and present lows and clearly defined highs, leaving plenty of space in the midrange for your vocals. Whether you play and sing, or just want a great-sounding instrument, you'll be glad you grabbed a AEF18E from Sweetwater.
AEF body shape feels great and keeps feedback at bay
If you're going to play acoustic guitar plugged in, then you're going to want an Ibanez AEF18E acoustic-electric. Why? Because feedback is a total show-stopper. The feedback your typical acoustic-electric guitar is capable of producing (seemingly at random) can easily clear a room. But with its shallow body and advanced internal design, you virtually never have to worry about feedback, when you play a AEF18E. What's more, the AEF18E's slightly undersized body makes it incredibly comfortable to play - especially if you're used to playing a slim electric guitar.
Onboard SPT Shape Shifter electronics let you dial in perfect live sound
Here's another reason that the Ibanez AEF18E is such an great acoustic guitar for playing live - its killer SPT Shape Shifter electronics system. The SPT Shape Shifter active preamp and pickup system gives you both an 3-band EQ and a shape control, which make it easy to get great sound in virtually any venue. You also get balanced XLR output in addition to the standard 1/4" jack - just what you need to run direct to the board. Add to that an onboard tuner (so you can't leave home without one), and the electronics system onboard the AEF18E acoustic guitar gives you real bang for the buck!
