Onboard electronics make playing plugged in a pleasure

The Ibanez AEW40AS packs Fishman’s Sonicore pickup, plus an Ibanez AEQ-SP2 preamp, giving you excellent sound and flexible options when you play plugged in. Any gigging guitarist at Sweetwater will tell you that Fishman makes some of the best acoustic amplification systems around, and their Sonicore pickup delivers the kind of clarity we expect from them. At the same time, the Ibanez AEQ-SP2 preamp gives your AEW40AS bass and treble control along with the volume knob, so you can quickly dial in a great tone. Best of all, the built-in tuner makes it easy to keep your instrument sounding its best.
