With the Ibanez PA230E-NSL Electro Acoustic, seen here with a Natural Satin finish, you get a modern electro acoustic guitar designed to suit contemporary playstyles.

A Newly-Designed Acoustic With An Incredible Array Of Sounds

The Ibanez PA series is a new range of acoustic guitars, with an asymmetric jumbo body design and fine-tuned playability that's suited to modern fingeerstyle players.

Not only that, but the guitars also utilise an incredible electronics system that offers stereo outputs and a mixture of magnetic and contact pickups, to offer a superb array of tonal options.

Ibanez PA230E-NSL Electro Acoustic, Natural Satin Highlights

  • High quality elcetro acoustic guitar with an incredible 3-pickup electronics system
  • Asymmetric jumbo-style body with a softcutaway for easy upper fret access
  • 25.75" scale length allows for the crorrect levels of tension and pitch across each string, even when down-tuning
  • Specially-developed X-M Bracing system offers a more responsive sound and wider dynamic range
  • Custom electronics, with output controls for Magnetic Pickup and Contact Pickups
  • Two outputs offer an exceptional range of sound options
  • Includes durable padded gig bag

Premium-Grade Construction

At first glance the most noticeable thing about the PA230E is the unique shape of its body - an asymmetrical Jumbo, crafted from high grade Solid Cedar and Okoume.

For this body Ibanez have taken the traditional Jumbo shape and given it a more asymmetric waist, which offers a friendly shape for fingerstyle players and tappers, and delivers a low-end focused sound.

In addition to this, Ibanez have invested several years-worth of research and development into the creation of their new X-M bracing design for these guitars, which creates a highly responsive sound and wide dynamic range.

Incredible Tonality

Another unique feature on this guitar is the inclusion of a slightly-extended scale length of 25.75" (as opposed to the more traditional 25.5").

This scale length helps the guitar to retain correct levels of tension and pitch, even with down-tuned strings, as well as increasing natural sustain.

Distinct Pickup System

The icing on the cake with the PA230E-NSL is the inclusion of two high quality pickup systems and Stereo Out electronics.

First we have the small, lightweight AP11 Magnetic pickup that's positioned where it won't inhibit the top wood's natural vibrations. This pickup delivers a very responsive sound, with minimal feeedback, and a lively response across the entire audible spectrum.

As it's placed on the neck block, the Ibanez Block contact pickup is feedback resistant and manages to evenly capture percussive sounds from the body to the neck, whilst adding air and brightness to the piezo sound.

Finally, the three transducer Contact pickup delivers organic individual note clarity, whilst naturally reproducing percussive body tapping techniques.

Dual Outputs

Complimenting the pickups perfectly is not one, but two 1/4" jack socket outputs, which give you three incredible output options.

If you use just the end-pin output, then both pickup systems (Magnetic and Contact) will be output using a mixed signal.

When both the end-pin and open jack are used, then the end-pin transports the Magnetic pickup's output, whilst the Open Jack delivers the Contact pickup audio.

Each pickup type features independent Volume controls, allowing you to fine tune your output depending on your needs.

All-in-all the Ibanez PA230E-NSL is a superb modern acoustic that's ideal for contemporary and experimental acoustic players, and it can be yours now for a fantastic price.
