    Large and deep for clearer highs and added projection.

    The Ibanez AEL2012ETKS 12-String Acoustic Electric Guitar sports a flamed maple top and maple & back sides. The cutaway gives you full access to the rosewood fretboard. Other features include an abalone rosette, chrome die-cast tuners, Ivorex ™ nut and saddle, and Advantage™ bridge pins.

    The AEL2012ETKS is equipped to shine in any venue with the Fishman Sonicore and the AEQ-SST Shape Shifter Preamp. The Fishman Sonicore is an under-the saddle pickup designed to eliminate sonic deadspots and is made from a copolymer material in a special braided wire. The 3-band AEQ-SST Shape Shifter Preamp was specifically designed to work with the Fishman Sonicore pickup and features a tone shaper that lets you quickly and easily dial in the sound you want. The Shape Shifter is quiet and has a lot of headroom so you can get more volume before distortion sets in. It also has a phase reverse switch for eliminating feedback and an onboard tuner.

                I bought this guitar as a gift. I don't play guitar, but I had heard my husband mention Ibanez as being a decent maker and the reviews really helped make my choice. My husband was surprised and very happy with the sound and the action. Everyone who has heard it is impressed. I bought it used, condition level 2, but it looks brand new.

                Just got this as my new toy. I have always loved the sound of a 12 string but had never actually thought about buying one. I was torn between this and a mandolin for new sound for our worship band at churh. Man am i glad i went with this! It sound amazing right out of the box, the action is great and the strings it came with sound really good. I bought some Elixir strings for it, but I am going to wait a bit before changing them out. I am very pleased with this purchase and can not wait to hear it plugged in this weekend!

                to finish and set up. it's a beautiful guitar as long as
                you don't look really close.

                Another nice Ibanez

                By Stargazer

                from Pennsylvania

                Comments about Ibanez AEL2012ETKS 12-String Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

                I really like this 12 string. The action is low all the way down the neck. It sounds great acoustically and plugged in. The fishman electronics make it sound great with lots of flexability in the tone and voicing. The onboard tuner is great and works well. When I first took it out of the box I strummed it a few times and of coarse it wasn't totally in tune. I turned on the tuner and tuned each string to the green light and then played it and it sounded beautiful without any further tuning. The more I play it the more I like it and I am considering selling my electric 12 now. I really don't need it because this one does both acoustic and electric.
                Love the on board tuner and the fishman electronics make it sound great.
                The neck is straight and the action is low. Bought mine as a used one so maybe someone had already set it up, I don't know, but the action was beautiful right out of the box. Only had it for a few weeks but it's keeping tune quite well so far. Intonation is pretty good. The neck is much wider than my electric 12 but I like that, seems to make it easier to play more accurately since there is more space between the string sets and I can fingerpick it pretty well. The finish is nice but I would have liked a more transparent finish, this one appears almost solid black unless you're right next to it with good lighting then you can see some woodgrain showing through. I got it as a level 3 used which allows for heavy scratches and nics but it took a while to find a nic, just two small ones on the back. The scratches aren't that bad either. Almost like new!
                Bought this as a used one and for what I paid this is a lot of guitar and very nice.

                Ibanez AEL2012ETKS 12-String Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar - an excellent value

                By David Rosky

                from Columbus, Ohio

                Comments about Ibanez AEL2012ETKS 12-String Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

                This guitar plays great and sounds great both acoustically and amplified -- comperable with instruments of twice the price tag. The on-board tuner and electronics are very good. The additional XLR connection is a very nice feature, providing another good option for direct line amplification and/or recording. The guitar holds tune very well during hours of play and even during storage. The hardshell case really protects the instrument and helps keep the tuning -- definitley worth the investment. The only negative is the battery compartment which is a rather fragile design -- a possible future concern. The price tag for this quality of 12-string is amazing -- a great value product.

                Great guitar, may need bridge support

                By Daniel Thompson-Aue

                from Idaho Falls, Idaho

                Comments about Ibanez AEL2012ETKS 12-String Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

                Beautiful guitar, looks great on stage, plenty of sound, nice maple eq profile, tuner is great, preamp is very good.
                I bought this guitar used after enjoying playing on in the store. I love the look of the transparent black with gold tuners and all, very dynamic looking. I love the sound from the all-maple body, nice and bright with a quick punch on the low end. I look forward to the sound as the guitar ages. Plays well clear up the neck; on board tuner is very helpful. I play in a group with electric guitar and electric bass, this 12 is very loud and fills the sound out. Great combination of performance and style. If you can find a hard shell case for it grab it, this is an enormous guitar and hard to fit; I have settled in the short term for a very large gig bag.
                Durable, reliable components and construction, except for weakness in bridge support that may lead to bridge pulling top out of level and affecting sound and action. Easily repaired.
                Terrific 12 string guitar for the money, dynamic looking, great sound, very playable.
