Its comfort and balance are second to none. The Performing Artist Series was designed to blend Martin’s legendary guitar tone and appointments with player-friendly features for outstanding playability and tonal performance. The DCPA1 features a solid Sitka spruce top, 2-ring rosette, solid East Indian rosewood back and sides, solid ovangkol binding, 25.4″ scale length, 1-3/4″ width at nut, solid black ebony bridge, and gold tuning machines enclosed with large buttons.

The Fishman Aura Blender electronics are simply amazing as well. They provide an easy-to-use, powerful, and great sounding amplification. They keep it simple with only 2 low profile knobs and a single LED display which control a digital chromatic tuner, volume and blend controls, independent 3-band EQ for both pickup and image signals, compressor, phase control and an automatic anti-feedback filter with up to 3 notches.

Ibanez AEL20E Acoustic Electric Guitar Review http://guitar-reviewer.com/ibanez-ael20e-acoustic-electric-guitar-review http://guitar-reviewer.com/ibanez-ael20e-acoustic-electric-guitar-review#comments Tue, 14 Sep 2010 09:12:40 +0000 admin http://guitar-reviewer.com/?p=459 The Ibanez AEL20E Acousic Electric Guitar is another great example of Ibanez making a terrific looking and sounding guitar at a price anyone can afford. The finish they put on the flamed maple top is nothing short of amazing. The Fishman Sonicore pickup combined with the SST preamp put out an excellent reproduction of the AEL20E’s acoustic tone. This guitar also features a rosewood fretboard and bridge, Die-cast gold tuners, pearl dot inlays and an onboard tuner. You will never play out of tune again.

If you are in the market for a beginner to intermediate level guitar, you will be hard-pressed to find a better sounding or more gorgeous guitar for the money. The craftsmanship is second to none.
