I just took over the acoustic spot in our church's worship team and I needed an acoustic/electric while on stage. I have an Ibanez EW20ASNT and was trying to decide on installing an LR Baggs system in it with a preamp as the guitar sounds so great acoustically.For the same price of a pickup and pre-amp, I was able to pick up this guitar plus a few extra bones (got a discount with a blem model!). I was worried this guitar wouldn't "cut-through" the worship mix, but so far, everybody says it sounds a 100x better than the Takamine EG523SC that it was replacing on stage. One of the comments was that it sounded much deeper than the Taki and more natural. I would attribute this to the different type of pickup and I believe a better sound without the glossy finish (I believe it 'tightens' the sound when you have a clear coat... from my experience).Over all, I have not looked back from this guitar. One thing that I can say is that I have normal sized hands, but meaty palms and the Ibanez neck can't be beat. Period...and the fact that I can practice with my non-electric Ibanez, then jump to the acoustic/electric Ibanez without skipping a beat or warmup.Great guitar, great price. I also recommend the AEL50C case for it. It's awesome... saving for one now since I love the guitar so much! :)

If you want quality without high expense, this is it. Have a band that plays classic country, some golden oldies, rock & roll and some blues. Own several guitars. This one plays and sounds as good as my Guild D55 and better than my LTD90 Takamini. Plugged in or straight the sound is excellant. Plays nearly as easily as my Tele. For the money I can highly recommend this guitar. Only complaint is a very small flaw in the top finish near the base of the neck. Noticeable only if you look for it. This keeps me from giving in a 10 rating.

By guitar fanatic123

from GREENSBURG, PA

i got this guitar for Christmas 2012, when i got it the preamp would'nt work so we took it back to where we got it and they hooked me up with a barcus berry breeze iv it sounds amazing, i get more complaments from this guitar than my friend gets on his high end taylor, but if i where you i would also get the guitar setup it makes it easier to play

Works for me!

By Guidrummer

from Cumberland, MD

I bought this guitar about a year ago. It sounded great but didn't play too well. After having it set up (i.e. nut slots and saddle filed down a bit), it sounded amazing AND PLAYED amazingly too!!! The moral of the story? Buy it, have it set up (by someone who know what they're doing), and for WAY less than you would pay for a Taylor or a Martin, you have yourself one great guitar!!!

Guitarist From NJ (Mark)

By Mark-y4btU

from NJ

I've owned this guitar now for almost four years. I totally love its looks and even its unplugged tone quality. HOWEVER... It emits a LOT of hiss in my PA system and in several PA's I've tried. Also, the output of the quarter inch jack is very low compared with its XLR output. I called Ibanez re: these problems and they simply said to take it to a repairman. Are others experiencing the amount of hiss I am? Or is it just a problem with mine? Apart from these problems, I really appreciate the guitar.

Decent guitar, sub-par pickups

By Peter-rnTPD

from Fairfax County, VA

Physically, the AEL50SERLV is absolutely beautiful. The inlays are breathtaking. Played acoustically, it has a crisp, full sound. The cutaway body and onboard tuner are great features. Now for the negative.. the pickups are awful! They do not pickup the bass strings and add too much highs to the treble strings. I messed around with the levels as much as I could- no dice. Also, this guitar arrived with the neck slightly bowed. I ended up returning it. This is a decent guitar, but there are better ones out there.

pickups suck

By consumer advocate

the worst thing about this guitar is the pickups.they are really bad and make the guitar sound like crap! They are probably the cheapest pick system out there.

Great Great Great

By SaddleCreeker33

from Omaha, NE

This is my 4th acoustic and easily on the top tier. The sound of the guitar is fantastic, the fret board was really salty when I first picked it up but it has mellowed out allowing for great bend sound. I've owned the guitar for a month and have found no flaws to report. Great Sound, Great Looks, Great Guitar.

What a great guitar

By Samchevy

from Southwick, Ma

At first glace I thought this was a taylor. It is beautiful. The AEL50 is even better than the AEL20. By far I would say this is one of the best guitars Ibanez makes. It's not hard to adjust the action. You can do it without shaving frets.Buy this guitar, you'll be happy. The fishman pickup/preamp hold true to it's name.

Excellent guitar for the price

By iwantbaja

from Devon, UK

I was so happy with this guitar when I bought it- for the price, it simply cannot be beaten. It sounds warm and rich and is very pretty indeed. The fretboard plays well enough and the tuning system is very handy indeed. I now own a Taylor 314ce and use this guitar tuned in DADGAD every now and then. Great for the price, but don't get fooled by this 'better than a martyn/taylor' mlarky. It's the best middle range guitar you'll find.

Well...

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

As a player, I've grown up on Taylors and Larivees, so it's no surprise that I have expensive taste for the best. This thing has an excellent sound, it's easy on the eyes, and you can't beat the price. If your looking to spend a bit on an acoustic buy this.I also recommend... For a little less the Taylor Big Baby, or for a little more the Guild GAD-25
