A reimagined dreadnought shape for brighter, fuller sound.
The Ibanez AAD50 Advanced Acoustic grand dreadnought guitar was designed from the ground up to deliver richer, brighter and fuller tone, with a wide dynamic range for peak versatility. Featuring slightly larger-than-typical proportions, Ibanez has dubbed this body shape the “Grand Dreadnought,” designed for powerful sound and comfortable ergonomics. It has X-M bracing for a clear bottom and crispy treble sound with trimmed warm mid-range. The solid sitka spruce top and sapele back and sides provide a wide frequency range, producing shimmering highs, tight mids and a full-bodied low end. The AAD50 grand dreadnought has an okoume neck for greater playing comfort, topped with a purpleheart fingerboard for eye-catching aesthetics and rich tone. The bridge is made of purpleheart, transferring string vibrations directly to the body, and includes Ibanez Advantage bridge pins with a special bulb-shaped end for easier gripping and positioning.
