The Ibanez TCM50 Electro Acoustic Guitar in Galaxy Black Open Pore is an eye-catching instrument, perfect for guitarist who wants the full tones of an acoustic guitar without the cumbersome body shape. Straight away it’s hard not to notice the glaring difference between this and your garden-variety 'dreadnought' style body shape. Beyond looking good this body shape has a real purpose, allowing for upper fret access to ensure you can hit those high notes with ease.
Double Cutaway Talman Body
Appealing to electric players with its comfortable curves, the Ibanez TCM50 loses none of its acoustic appeal despite its electric guitar shape. Featuring a sapele body with a figured ash top the Ibanez TCM50 has the tone to match it looks. With similar characteristics to mahogany, the sapele gives you a strong low and mid-range with more top end pronunciation than its African cousin. Whether you're strumming with force or fingerpicking reservedly you'll find this guitar capable of handling anything you can throw at it.
Slender Neck Profile
If there is one thing you can always count on with Ibanez it’s a comfortable neck and this guitar does not disappoint. The Okoume neck with satin finish is thin and extremely playable, something that should be of instant interest to the electric guitar players out there. The neck is partnered with a purpleheart fingerboard, which boasts 20-frets ornated with white dot position inlays.
The acoustic tones can be translated via your amp or P.A system’s speakers thanks to the onboard Ibanez AP2 magnetic pickup and AEQ200M preamp. This pickup ensures a wonderfully fat and warm sound comes through, and the preamp gives you quick access to a two-band EQ (comprised of treble and bass) and volume controls for on-the-fly tone and level manipulation.
The Ibanez TCM50 Electro-Acoustic Guitar features a purpleheart bridge which is where you’ll find another small but still significant feature in the form of Ibanez Advantage Bridge Pins. These are designed to be easier to remove and replace when changing strings and they stay put once they’re in. Combined with the chrome die-cast tuners you can rely on the tuning stability of this guitar whether you're practising at home or playing a venue.
