Ibanez AAD100 - Open Pore Natural

Ibanez AAD100 Solid Spruce Top, Grand Dreadnought - Open Pore Natural


Ibanez AAD100 OPN: Superior Playability and Versatility

The Ibanez AAD100 features the innovative Grand Dreadnought body, a result of years of rigorous R&D. This new body shape is 5% larger than a standard dreadnought, offering more volume, richer tone, and a more powerful low-end response. Despite its larger size, it remains extremely comfortable to play, thanks to its ergonomic design.

Superior Sound with X-M Bracing

Ibanez's X-M Bracing, developed through years of trial and error, enhances the guitar's sound by efficiently transmitting string vibrations through the bridge to the body. This carefully designed scalloped X-bracing, along with tone and finger braces, creates clear bottom, crisp treble, and warm mid-range tones, providing a wide dynamic range and high response.

Comfortable Neck and Tapered Headstock

The Low Oval Grip Thermo Aged Nyatoh neck with Rounded Fretboard Edges ensures easy chord strumming and superior playability. The Thermo Aged process makes the neck light, hard, stable, and resonant. The newly designed tapered headstock shape provides lighter weight, straight string alignment for enhanced tuning stability, and reduced neck twisting.

Rich and Warm Tone

The Okoume back and sides generate a woody, warm tone when played softly or finger-picked, and provide punchy high-mids with clear projection when strummed. This combination offers versatility for various playing styles.

Practical and Durable Features

Ibanez Advantage bridge pins are easier to insert and remove than standard pins, featuring a special bulb-shaped end for a better grip and preventing the pin from being pushed in too far. These pins ensure the string stays in place, enhancing the guitar's overall functionality.
