The AEWB32 features a grand concert shaped body with a soft Florentine cutaway and an arched back. The top is laminated spruce with black binding on mahogany back and sides with a gloss finish. The round soundhole has a walnut rosette. It has a maple & mahogany neck with a 32" scale, 21-fret rosewood fingerboard with maple dot position markers. Components include a compensated bone saddle in a rosewood bridge with black Ibanez Advantage bridge pins, a bone nut, and black Ibanez die-cast tuning machines.
