An Amazing Nylon-string Acoustic-electric!

Slightly smaller and far more slender than a typical acoustic, Ibanez's GM500CE nylon-string acoustic-electric guitar is a comfortable fit for anyone from flatpickers to fingerstylists alike. To give the GM500CE a clear voice that suits blues, country, rock, and pop equally well, Ibanez built this workhorse acoustic guitar with a back and sides made from rosewood. A solid cedar top balances out the GM500CE's deep and rich low end with an even balance of midrange clarity and a warm high end. And to top it all off, you're even ready to take the stage, thanks to the GM500CE's Fishman pickups and AEQ210TF preamp/tuner system.

Ibanez GM500CE Acoustic-electric Nylon-string Guitar at a Glance:
  • Cedar-topped rosewood provides warmth and projection
  • An amazing acoustic guitar for the stage, studio, or couch
  • Onboard electronics let you dial in perfect live sound
Cedar-topped rosewood provides warmth and projection

The combination Ibanez chose, a cedar top on a rosewood back and sides, has been a favorite among songwriters and live performers since the beginning of modern American music. Together, these tonewoods give the GM500CE 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 GM500CE from Sweetwater.

An amazing acoustic guitar for the stage, studio, or couch

The tried-and-true combination of a cedar top and a rosewood back and sides has been used in classical guitar for ages. The not-too-bright cedar top delivers quick response and warm tones. Rosewood back and sides project well and is perfect for solo instruments. The built-in AEQ210TF preamp (complete with XLR out!) sounds great plugged in, so you'll most likely find yourself holding your new favorite stage guitar when you take your GM500CE acoustic-electric onstage.

Onboard electronics let you dial in perfect live sound

The Ibanez GM500CE's built-in Ibanez AEQ210TF preamp and Fishman Sonicore pickup give you the power and tone you need for use onstage or in the studio. The AEQ210TF active preamp gives you a 2-band EQ and a phase control, which make it easy to get great sound in virtually any venue. You'll also love the convenience of the built-in guitar tuner.
