The Ibanez AEG8EMH 2018, Open Pore Natural, is a sleek acoustic guitar featuring a built-in pickup and preamp for live performances. The AEG body shape is smoothly contoured for a comfortable feel, while the single cutaway enables easy access to the top frets for high-range solos and capo players. The sapele body gives a warm and nuanced tone, while the X bracing improves the guitar's response and sustain. With the slim, satin-finished neck and flat fingerboard, the AEG8EMH is perfect for all styles of acoustic guitar playing, from fingerpicking to strumming and more. A handy onboard tuner and 2-band EQ lets you get in tune quickly and sculpt your amplified tone directly from the side of the guitar. The AEG8EMH delivers a smooth playability and a sweet tone, whether un-plugged or amplified, making it the ideal guitar for practising, gigging, and recording.
