Fanned frets offer a revolutionary new style of acoustic guitar
Ibanez proudly introduces a new AEL with a special feature, Fanned Frets. This Fanned Fretted AEL was designed to promote low string tone and improve string tension balance. The difference of the scale length (635mm at 1st string side and 680mm at 6th string side) helps to create deep, resonant lows as well as singing highs . The multi-scale length also handles alternate tunings beautifully, preserving equal string tension throughout the whole instrument. To increase tuning accuracy, 1:18 gear ratio tuners are equipped on this guitar. The combination of the AEL thin body and Rosewood back & sides equals a great tonal response and sound character. Although this guitar features a unique and “boutique” design, it is being made available with affordability in mind.
