OVERVIEW

Striking looks and rich tone.

The first model to be introduced in the Exotic Wood Series, the Ibanez EW2012ASENT 12-string acoustic-electric guitar sports an eye-popping figured-ash body. The wood's lavish grain will compete for attention with the guitar's big bold sound that projects powerfully plugged-in or not. A B-Band UST pickup delivers the signal to an SRTn preamp equipped with a tuner and a notch filter for keeping feedback at bay. With 1/4" and XLR outputs, you're ready to plug 'n' play via your own amp or the house's sound system.

FEATURES
  • 12 String
  • Onboard tuner
  • Notch filter

    Comments about Ibanez EW2012ASENT 12-String Exotic Wood Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    The first one I ordered was broken at the junction of the neck and head. Musicians Friend promptly replaced it. The replacement plays well and sounds good, both plugged in and unplugged from amp. Had it about two weeks and have had no problems with the neck. The built in tuner is not very accurate. Had to use another tuner and my ear to properly tune it.

          Comments about Ibanez EW2012ASENT 12-String Exotic Wood Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

          Short and sweet: Guitar is gorgeous, pictures do not do it justice. Great sound unplugged, spectacular sound amped. Action and intonation were great right out of the box. The only slight criticism is that the on board tuner is kind of funky in its operation but it is usable once you figure it out. Honest opinion is a solid 4.5 - 4.75. I bought this as an "open box" which afforded additional funds off of the normal great price, which makes this deal very sweet.

              This guitar is beautiful - not only to the eyes, but to the ears as well. I purchased this instrument for my son, who is an accomplished guitarist. He absolutely loves to play it, He has had other 12 string guitars, but says this one is the best, over all, he has ever had. Our family loves to sit and listen to the beautiful sounds he produces with this guitar, I considered other makes of 12 strings but actually picked this one because it was so beautiful. My son is 46 years old - he has been playing since he was about 14. He has been through many guitars - so far, this is his favorite.
