If stages, studios, the road, and acoustic guitars are your bailiwick, Ibanez just made your life a little easier, with a surprisingly versatile musical tool. The short-scale AEG family has already earned a solid reputation as the electric guitarist's easy-playing stage acoustic/electric. The AEG240 is even more comfortable, with its thin, feedback-crushing body. But the big news is USB connectivity... you know what that means: You don't have to trust your next musical idea to a lame built-in laptop mic. The Fishman pre-amp and pickups deliver string-to-string clarity and breadth though the simple, fast USB connection.
