A Rock-solid Performer Equipped with Ibanez’s A.I.R.port

Brimming with pro-level appointments, the all-okoume Ibanez AE140 Acoustic-electric guitar is a superb choice for the advancing guitarist seeking a top-tier performance instrument. This guitar’s solid okoume top and okume body supply a supremely warm and mahogany-like voicing, complete with a personal A.I.R. sound port that provides superior sonic feedback straight to your ears. When it comes to playing comfort, Sweetwater guitarists of all styles champion the AE140’s laurel-topped nyatoh neck for its supremely playable Comfort Grip profile. You also get a stage-ready Ibanez AEQ-TP2 preamp and pick system with built-in tone controls and an onboard tuner. A comfortable cutaway seals the deal, all adding up to a powerhouse of an acoustic-electric guitar destined for the stage!

Outstanding all-okoume tone

Comprised of a solid okoume top and matching okoume back and sides, the Ibanez AE140 harkens back to the old-school tradition of hardwood-topped 6-strings. Okoume’s warm, rich, and somewhat dark tone is a perennial favorite of singer-songwriters and fingerpickers looking to tame strident highs. In fact, okoume is regularly touted by tonewood experts for its mahogany-esque midrange bias, crisp timbre, and clearly defined attack.

Cutting-edge A.I.R.port

Whether you’re strumming through tunes on the couch or woodshedding your next performance piece, the Ibanez AE140’s A.I.R.port (Acoustic Information Response) makes solo playing a joy with superior sonic feedback. While most acoustic guitars project solely through their soundhole — and away from your ears — Ibanez’s A.I.R.port-equipped guitars sport a secondary soundhole on the upper bout pointed directly toward your ears. This design offers a more pleasing and full-sounding tone in both the seated and standing positions and a brilliant aural snapshot of what your audience hears on the other end!
