Ibanez AAM50CE-OPN Advanced Auditorium Acoustic/Electric Guitar





Through intensive research and development, we have designed the A.I.R.port with a unique internal structure that reflects sound waves and guides them to exit from a precisely positioned sound hole. As a result, players can monitor what they are playing more clearly, which enhances the overall playing experience.

Advanced Auditorium Body

With the concept of Advanced Acoustics – “Reimagining Acoustic Experience” in mind, we carefully designed the new body shape of the Advanced Auditorium, drawing on our research into the general Auditorium body shape. After many rounds of prototyping, the Advanced Auditorium body has a slightly wider waist, which has been moved slightly towards the neck. Thanks to these changes, this shape delivers a richer low mids and better body to weight balance, which conventional Auditorium bodies tend to lack.

X-M bracing for AAM series

After more than two years of trial and error, research, and prototyping, Ibanez developed its proprietary X-M bracing specifically for Advanced Auditorium guitar bodies to produce the ultimate sound for the stage and studio. The carefully designed scalloped X-M bracing, tone braces, and finger braces efficiently transmit string vibration from the bridge to the body. This bracing provides a wide dynamic range and excellent response. The mids are slightly scooped for better tonal balance, and the treble has the clarity of steel strings while retaining the warmth of nylon strings.

Solid Sitka Spruce top

Solid Sitka Spruce top provides an enormous frequency range that offers wave after wave of shimmering highs along with tight mids and a full-bodied low end.

Sapele back and sides

Sapele back and sides offer a full-bodied and warm mid-range and a bright tone.

Low Oval Grip Okoume neck

The Low Oval neck grip facilitates easy chord strumming.

Purpleheart fretboard

The Purpleheart fretboard emphasizes the beauty and the rich tonal character of this bass.

Purpleheart bridge

The Purpleheart bridge transfers string vibration directly to the body, delivering a natural and warm tone.

Advanced Access Cutaway

Its deep straight cutaway (from 18th fret) and shaved side enable amazing high fret access.

Ibanez AEQ-TP2 preamp w/Onboard tuner

The Ibanez AEQ-TP2 preamp provides the extra punch of on-board EQ along with a convenient and easy-to-read digital tuner and 2-band EQ, located on the instrument’s upper bout.

Ibanez T-bar Undersaddle pickup

The Ibanez T-bar Undersaddle pickup accurately translates that full sound to whatever amplification system you plug it into.

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.
