Designed for those looking a completely new look and voice.
The Ibanez EW20KOENT Acoustic-Electric Guitar was designed for the player who is looking for a completely new and different voice. Koa top, back and sides. Sound and playability are the two most important components in an instrument. But very few will deny that a standout visual aspect enhances your performance. Even among much more expensive guitars, you won't find anything else quite like it.

I love this guitar! It has a unique and beautiful sound. Stock from the store it badly needed major adjustments, especially of the action. But that done it plays like a dream. It doesn't have a huge sound - it has a smaller body and the koa doesn't flex as much as a sold spruce top would. It likes phosphor bronze strings. The tone is pretty and balanced. The sound from the pickup is marginally acceptable as with most electric/acoustic guitars.
I purchased this guitar a few months ago. At first glance, I nearly passed on it due to the odd cutaway design but, after playing it in the store and seeing the price. It was a no brainer.I've since played this guitar at rehearsals and at a live stadium event where, to my surprise, the pickup and preamp system performed flawlessly. The only negative I have on this guitar is that the tuner doesn't automatically deactivate. This made for an awkward couple of seconds at my gig when no sound came out because I'd forgotten to switch off the tuner.
I don't know why this guitar is rated so high. When I first layed my eyes on it, I thought that it may have some potential. I personaly think that its all looks and no quality. I played it a bit, and the sound wasn't that great. Its a little muffled, and the strings are harder to press then on a YAMAHA for example. The guitar in the music store may have been equiped with old strings, but I believe that any other guitar decent played who played it, put it down and never touched it again. Nevertheless, It looks great. I absoulutley love the finish, and I may RENT it just to play it at my wedding since it looks so good. I wouldn't invest in it. Try playing a Matrin, Gibson, or my favorite... a Taylor. Save up, and buy a quality piece of wood.
I'm in love with this guitar. It's no secret that it's gorgeous (and much more so in person even than the very lovely photos), but that's a minor detail next to sound and feel. I thought my other guitars had comfortable necks, until I picked this one up. Now the others are getting pretty badly neglected. The sound blows me away, too -- it really is a unique voice, and even and very clear without ever being twangy or the least bit harsh. And the on-board tuner is just a great little perk. No, it isn't my brother's four thousand dollar Taylor, but it's won me over completely. Great, great guitar!
I received this as a birthday present from my girlfriend and I'm very happy with it. The action and intonation were perfect, the electronics and tuner work fine, and it has an awesome look. It holds a tune for weeks, and you won't find a better looking instrument with these features for the same price. Changing the strings is a must though. Some thick bronze D'Addarios really make a difference. It's the only acoustic I play live.
