The AE325 is an AE series acoustic/electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez for 2020. It is produced in China.
The AE325 features a Venetian cutaway body shape with a solid Sitka spruce top with standard X-M bracing on flamed okoume back and sides with a low gloss finish. The soundhole is round with an abalone and wooden rosette, soundhole binding and a clear pickguard. It has an African mahogany and pau ferro Comfort Grip neck with a 20-fret Macassar ebony fingerboard with rounded edges, special wooden vine position markers and Luminlay side dots. Components include a compensated bone saddle in a scalloped Macassar ebony bridge with Ibanez Advantage pins, a bone nut, and chrome die-cast tuning machines.
For 2021 the body was very slightly enlarged.
Electronics consist of a T-bar undersaddle pickup and an Ibanez AP11 magnetic pickup mounted at the neck connected to an Ibanez Custom Electronics preamp and volume and tone controls. It has dual outputs; if used alone the ¼" endpin output delivers a mix of the magnetic and piezo pickups or the piezo and magnetic signals can be delivered separately using both jacks.
