Overview of Ibanez EP10-BP - Steve Vai Signature Acoustic Guitar W/Case-Black PearlSteve Vai Signature model with a Euphoria Thinline body, a cutaway and a Fishman pickup with Aura IC preamp. The EP10 Black Pearl has a top made of solid Engelmann spruce which is a wood type that's often used for its tonal characteristics: lots of sound intensity and clarity. The sides and back are made of mahogany, providing sufficient treble and mids. The neck, with 20 frets, is also made of mahogany and is attached to the body at the 14th fret. Because of the cutaway you can easily reach the higher frets. The rosewood fretboard has a striking inlay with a tree-of-life design. Fishman Acoustic Matrix pickup with Aura IC preamp The EP10-BP is equipped with a Fishman Acoustic Matrix Undersaddle pickup that features Aura Image Casting technology. This means you have four images of rich, acoustic tones, created by Steve Vai. These tones have been recorded in a professional studio with a full-body guitar, top-shelf microphones and an undersaddle pickup. Thanks to this technology, this Thinline body gets that firm sound of a full-body model. The Aura IC preamp also has volume and tone control. "The new Euphoria is made to be sleek and thin with a large acoustic electric sound. Its size gives it a bright crisp tone that allows it to sit on top of a mix." - Steve Vai
