The thin-line cutaway body profile of the Ibanez GA5TCE Classical Electro Acoustic Guitar makes it a must-have for touring musicians. Such a shape facilitates quick access to the top frets so that you obtain adequate freedom of movement into the upper registers. The pristine tones produced by this guitar take you back in time to the golden era of music. Therefore, if you wish to acquaint your audience with uncommon genres such as reggae, this guitar is your best bet. Furthermore, the top of this guitar is crafted from carefully selected spruce for accommodation of style that require a wide dynamic response. Spruce transmits sound at a high velocity and consequently contributes to overtone colouration, apart from imparting stiffness to the overall construction. The voice of spruce is marked by a high fundamental-to-overtone ratio. The mahogany construction of the back and sides translates into a full midrange.
The neck of this guitar is made from mahogany, which is widely used by luthiers for its stability and responsiveness. This tonewood produces smooth, well-defined tones with a mouthful of midrange by absorbing string vibrations from the top. Therefore, this guitar serves the needs of musicians who wish to cover a wide range of styles. Furthermore, you obtain fundamental-rich tones with sparkling treble notes from the rosewood fretboard.
