Slightly smaller and far more slender than a typical acoustic, Ibanez's GA35TCE thinline nylon-string acoustic-electric guitar is a comfortable fit for anyone from flatpickers to finger stylists alike. To give the GA35TCE a clear voice that suits blues and country, rock and pop equally well, Ibanez built this workhorse acoustic guitar with a back and sides made from mahogany. A solid spruce top balances out the GA35TCE's deep and rich low end with an even balance of midrange clarity and high-end sparkle. And to top it all off, you're even ready to take the stage thanks to the GA35TCE's Fishman pickups and AEQ210T preamp/tuner system. The combination Ibanez chose, a spruce top on a mahogany back and sides, has been a favorite among songwriters and live performers since the beginning of modern American music. Together, these tonewoods give the GA35TCE acoustic-electric guitar warm and present lows and clearly defined highs, leaving plenty of space in the midrange for your vocals. Whether you're the humblest of Saturday afternoon porch pickers or the seasoned pro who's been hauled from show to show a time or two, this Ibanez GA35TCE acoustic-electric nylon-string guitar was made for you. Everyone needs an inexpensive acoustic guitar you can pack up, head out, and run off with anytime you need, without worrying about damaging any priceless instruments. But your "beater" guitar doesn't need to sound bad, and the Ibanez GA35TCE is more than proof enough of that. In fact, its natural acoustic sound makes it a great campfire guitar, but it's small enough to be your new favorite couch guitar as well. The built-in AEQ210T preamp (complete with XLR out!) sounds great plugged in, so you'll most likely find yourself holding your new favorite stage guitar too when you take your GA35TCE acoustic-electric on stage!
