Feedback resistant, clear highs, strong midrange punch, and improved electronics.

The Ibanez AEF18LE Left-Handed Acoustic-Electric Guitar features the improved feedback-resistant AEF body that offers an ergonomic and comfortable shape. With sophisticated electronics for amplified performance, this guitar gets the job done at an affordable price.

The spruce top and mahogany back and sides provide the AEF18LE with clear highs and a strong midrange punch. The neck dimensions are comfortable and perfectly suited for playing for melodic lines and chords. Other refinements on this guitar include a laser engraved fire rosette, chrome die-cast tuners, rosewood bridge and fretboard, and Ivorex II nut and saddle for increased sustain and clarity.

For plugged-in performance, the Ibanez SPT preamp on the AEF18LE has a 3-band tone control, shape control, and phase switch for feedback reduction. The preamp also features a built-in electronic tuner and both 1/4" and XLR outputs for increased versatility.

Case sold separately.

    Purchased as a Level 4 guitar. Arrived with several finish cracks around nut and bridge. Easy fix for me. Installed some new Martin strings and adjusted the action...played really well.

    Restock instrument

    By sema

    from CA

    Verified Buyer

    Pros

    • Great price

    Cons

    • Long wait for delivery

    Best Uses

    • Backup guitar

    Comments about Ibanez AEF18LE Left-Handed Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    Got a Restock Dark Violin Sunburst version for a backup guitar, and it was a pleasant surprise!

    Guitar finish looked much better than on photo and I could not spot any difference with New instrument.

    The sound is superior to some more expensive models of similar class, both unplugged and amplified.

    Only required a minor adjustment, and I'll probably restring it with a softer string set.

    A real bargain!

    Comments about Ibanez AEF18LE Left-Handed Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I purchased this guitar as a backup guitar for my acoustic shows. When the guitar arrived it was packaged well, but the neck required a truss rod adjustment. The electronics and tuner in the guitar are good. Unplugged it's not a very lively guitar as far as its sound. Overall it's average, and the adage is true: You get what you pay for. When it comes to acoustics in this price range, you're probably better off buying new vs. used because these guitars don't take abuse as well as the more expensive models. The only concern I have with this instrument is the construction and bracing around the top and bridge. I'm not sure if putting anything heavier than a light gauge string is recommended for this model.

    Worth Every Dime

    Comments about Ibanez AEF18LE Left-Handed Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    The tuner is easy to use. The guitar sounds great over an amp. Unlike many electroacoustics, it has the same sound chamber as a regular acoustic (not "slimmed down"). The sustain is stunning. Now I understand why people rave about guitars with solid tops! This was a splurge for me, but I honestly don't see myself ever having to upgrade. I have found my sound!

    My review of the Ibanez AEF18LE Left-Handed Acoustic-Electric Guitar

    By Donald Elliott

    from Litchfield, MI

    Comments about Ibanez AEF18LE Left-Handed Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I have not found any dislikes about this guitar. It plays very well.
    The thin "D"shape neck makes the Ibanez AEF18LE Left-Handed Acoustic-Electric Guitar feel and play very good. Nice low action.
    The quality of this guitar I would give it a 10. The finnish is very good.
    It's worth every penny plus more.
