OVERVIEW

Big body, big sound, at a price that's not, well, big.

A large body guitar isn't always what you want if the sound isn't right. The Ibanez AEL Series, however, has the size, projection and beautiful tones that you need for any situation. The largest of acoustic guitar body offered by Ibanez, all AEL Series guitars, including the AEL152ETBS, is an excellent choice for players who want an expansive, natural acoustic sound.

Plugged in, it benefits from an Ibanez under saddle pickup and Ibanez SPT Shape Shifter preamp with onboard tuner delivering a sweet cascade of acoustic tones, never harsh or tinny. The AEL152ETBS features a solid mix of popular tonewoods with a spruce top, maple back and sides, and rosewood bridge and fingerboard, accented by a pearl rosette, chrome die-cast tuners, and a transparent blue sunburst finish.

Case sold separately.

Comments about Ibanez AEL152ETBS 12-String Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

First 12-string...plays very strong and has ringing deep sound. Bit bulky to hold but expected that with a 12 string "jumbo"! No scratch guard, though this allows for the color to be seen and enjoyed. Buy a clear removable one online. Color a little darker than expected and advertised. Needs continuous tuning which is a little annoying with a 12 string.
Quality construction as expected from Ibanez.

    Comments about Ibanez AEL152ETBS 12-String Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I have used 12's forever. I had a Mosrite Double Neck, 6/12, in the day, I now have 2 Dean 'Boca' 12s, an original '65 Fender 'Electric 12', a '70's Martin 'Sigma' 12, and back in the day, 2 different 'Kingston' 12s. Wish I still had the Relics, Who Knew?? After a truss rod tweak, and filing the underside of the bridge 'Bone' with sandpaper, the action at the 12th fret is (3)32d's I believe it could be made LOWER, But, that's pretty good. Sound is great, through an amp,[Fender Acoustasonic-15], and Pure Acoustic! I used to own a Guitar/Amp shop in the '70s, Sooo I've done lots of set-ups. The Blue color, Grows on ya!

        Comments about Ibanez AEL152ETBS 12-String Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        I told myself after checking this instrument out; "There is no way you just bought a guitar like THIS for this much money." my reply? YES! WAY! I have been playing guitar & stringed instruments for a number of years and I am severely impressed with the level of quality & playability in this price range.
