The AE255BT is a baritone scale AE series acoustic/electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez for 2018. It was made in China.
The AE255BT features a Venetian cutaway body shape with a solid Sitka spruce top with scalloped cross-bracing and ovangkol back (with Tone Projection cross bracing) and sides with a gloss finish. The soundhole is round with an abalone and maple rosette. It has a satin-finished mahogany neck with a 20-fret cultured maple fingerboard with special mother of pearl vine inlay. Components include a compensated bone saddle in a cultured maple bridge with ebony pins with abalone dots, a bone nut, a tortoise pickguard and chrome die-cast tuning machines. Electronics consist of a T-bar undersaddle pickup connected to an Ibanez Custom Electronics preamp mounted internally with a ¼" endpin output.
For 2019 the mahogany neck was changed to nyatoh.
The AE315 and the AE245 are related standard scale models.
The AE255BT was discontinued after 2019
