Easy to play, sounds great.

By trydyingtolive

from Rural Missouri

I thoroughly love this guitar. Easy to play it's set up nice out of the box. I love the way the guitar looks, its a nice aggressive style that really stands out. The electronics are great and sounds wonderful and clear plugged in. The action feels like an electric with heavy strings, it's that good. The eq is great for really zoning in on that perfect tone. The only real con I have is what is going to happen to the finish. There is no doubt in my mind that within a few years this will have that road warn look. Which isn't all bad, except that the finish is pretty nice so that's a shame. If you are looking for a case for this guitar get a classical guitar case its a perfect fit.


Pleasant surprise

By Butch

from Juneau, Ak.

This is a good all around. Fishman speaks for itself, electronically. The surprise is the acoustic tones, not deadened by the electronics at all. Strong point is strumming, but very good melodically. Good balance for finger picking, picking and strumming. Great all around play anything on it.


good product for money

By Butch

from Juneau, Ak.

Made in China, but what the hey? I could not find a flaw in fit or finish. Fishman electronics doesn't get any better in this price range. The acoustic tone blew me away - I did not expect it to sound better then my acoustic mahogany Martin but it does, and I paid three X's as much for the Martin. So rave on!

This is the absolute greatest acoustic I've ever played. And to add to that, its incredibly gorgeous. The sound is perfect, and the on-board tuner definitely helps me out a lot.

I love this guitar, I've owned it for about 5 or 6 months when I first played it I instantly fell in love with it. This pretty much is great for its price, I love how it looks with the diamond hole it seems to give it a more lower tone, which is what I was looking for at the time. I think its quality is pretty good too i've had no problems with it and its got no scratches or dents yet. One thing though that I have noticed is that you don't want to smack the pointed cut away into something too hard. If you do so you might smash the whole corner in.


nice and warm

By mike S

from RI

I have owned this guitar for a little over a year and I have to say I pretty much love it. Its looks are wonderful, the soundhole and inlays are eyecatching. The action is nice and low and overall fit and finish are excellent. Probably the best feature is the wonderful resonance of the sound, I guess its the mahogany body that does that. I think if this guitar was a little louder it would pretty much be perfect.

I just picked up this beauty a couple of days ago. The ASE20E got my attention the moment I saw it. I presently play a Seagul in my Worship band, and wanted a back up, but with a little more show. Plugged in this is more than adequate. My Segul may be taking the back-up role to my Ibanez. I'm blessed.


Ibanez... ole faithful

By MERKworks

from Chicago

The AES20E is number 3 out of my collection. A lot of bang for the buck. Very low action = easy to play, fast fingers! Diamond sound hole is beautiful but pain to find a pick guard for it. Sounds fabulous, very warm and rich! Then plug it in and BAM, Knock Out. Aggresive cut away, inlays, built in tuner, unique style, with simple finish. It's the Johnny Cash of Guitars!


Best sound for the money

By The Jason Dixon Line

from Minneapolis, MN

I was in a guitar shop today. The diamond shaped sound hole caught my eye. I wanted to see what this guitar sounded like. So I played it for about 20 minutes. It sounded beautiful! I play a Taylor. I was also playing a Baby Taylor at the store, which is in the same price range as this Ibanez. The difference is, the Baby Taylor is not an acoustic electric. If you plan on just strumming your guitar at home, with no amplification, then I'd say definitely go for the Baby Taylor. But, if you're looking for a nice sounding acoustic electric guitar, at a decent price, this Ibanez is the one to buy. I have always thought of Ibanez as a Bass company or a heavy meatl electric guitar company. But, their acoustics are very well built, & sound very nice. I plan on buying this guitar after the holidays. I sort of already spent my money on a 69 Telecaster ThinLine, which is phenomenal! This Ibanez Acoustic Electric would make a great Christmas Gift for any beginner to intermediate guitar player.


quality & sound & looks!!

By Double-qdFSx

from Lakin Ks

I own this guitar and have not been playing long but the feel and tone are great. EQ and tuner mike line out will let you do about anything you could think of. It is a fantastic value and the sound. You need to put one in your hands.
