Distinguished appearance and bright, resonant tone.
The AEL50SERLV Acoustic Electric has a flamed sycamore back and sides and a solid spruce top that produces shimmering highs and a warm low end. The Ibanez SQR pickup and SRT preamp assure this guitar will sound just as good when it's plugged in. Die-cast gold tuners, a beautiful wood vine inlay, and onboard tuner make this guitar an outstanding value!

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.

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
- Was this a gift?:
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.
I thought Martin and Taylor was and is a great sound and easy play till I picked this guitar up in a music store and could not put it back on the rack;UNREAL that this Ibanz Guitar can sound and play as good as the Gibsons Martins and Taylors I'vd played. The Elixer strings I put on the guitar did improve the sound but I was still totally Impressed of the Quality Sound of what I was hearing; "played a many of Guitars but not ONE like this ONE" Totally a UNIQUE and Impressive Instrument!
I use this as my main player in a gospel/country band and sounds great plugged or unplugged. Nice easy action and tone. Tuner is aliitle off but will get you close enough to tune by ear. Would recommend for a good beginer guitar as it is easy on the fingers and looks great.
A very nice guitar plays very good and sounds very good pluged in or unpluged wery much better than the cheaper model Iwas very suprised at the quality at the price Get one and try it yourself you'll be glad you did Cliff.
This is the first guitar I have ever owned and I couldn't have hoped for a better instrument. Easy enough for a relative novice to play, yet the sound and quality of the guitar will allow me to play it for years to come (on and off-stage). I have used it while playing in a pit band for a theatre production, and it was by far the best sounding instrument in the pit. The tuner is slightly deceptive, it will get the tone in the ballpark of in-tune, but use your ear to make sure everything sounds correct. This is also one of the most beautiful guitars I have seen. The wood inlay gives this instrument a unique look that few others in any price range can compete with. For the price you can't go wrong with this beautiful (looking and sounding) instrument.
It's beautiful and sounds pretty good but like most of these guitars I think the neck is bulkey and the tuner is inaccurate very bad intonation it really needs some serious work to be a great guitar maybe someday China will be able to compete with America in the guitar field.
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.
I tried it out at a local music store and I think it is a beautiful piece of wood work but needs some work to be right the tuner for one is not accurate and the intonation could be a lot better the tone depth could be much better and the neck could be thinner from the back to the top of the finger board its very pretty and sounds ok. But unless you are a good tech or know one give some thought about buying it.
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
