The AEG8TNE is an AEG series acoustic/ electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez for 2015. It was produced in China.
The AEG8TNE features a thin grand concert shaped body with a soft Venetian cutaway. The top is laminated spruce with binding on mahogany back and sides. The round soundhole has a black & white acrylic rosette. It has a satin-finish mahogany neck with a 25" scale, 21-fret rosewood fingerboard with small white dot position markers. Components include a plastic saddle in a rosewood bridge, a plastic nut, and chrome Ibanez classical tuning machines. Electronics consist of an Ibanez under saddle pickup connected to an Ibanez AEQ-2T preamp with onboard tuner powered by a 9V battery and ¼" stereo output.
For 2018 the back & sides were switched to sapele and the rosewood fretboard and bridge were replaced with purpleheart. For 2019 the mahogany neck was replaced with okoume.
