Beautiful ebony decorates this incredible EW body, with Ibanez electronics and impeccable craftsmanship for a sound unlike any other 6-string.
From Ibanez comes a bold-sounding beauty of a guitar in the in the Exotic Wood Series EWC30EBE acoustic-electric guitar, offered at a price that will astound. The compact EWC30 has a smaller body compared to that of the full-sized EW20 guitars: 15" width vs 16", 3-3/4" depth vs 5", 19-1/4" length vs 20". This Ibanez Exotic Wood acoustic guitar presents premiere stage performance, with striking visual appointments and superior electronics. It boasts a beautiful ebony body, abalone rosette, and intuitive Ibanez electronics with an onboard tuner, making sure you are both seen and heard.
The Ivorex II nut on this Ibanez acoustic-electric guitar is stronger and more durable than bone and even harder than the original Ivorex. Ivorex II nut allows brilliant highs and more pronounced lows with less mid-range that makes Ivorex II-fitted guitars perfect for amplification.
The biggest advantage on the Ibanez EWC30EBE guitar's SRTc preamp is that you can instantly get beautiful chorus sound with the push of one button. This preamp also includes Phase Reverse and Anti-Feedback Frequency controls, plus an onboard tuner.
Dressed in a superlative natural high gloss finish, this Ibanez guitar is a great beginner's instrument, and will spruce up any musician's collection, at a price that'll make you smile.

This is one of the finest sounding Ibonez acoustic/electric guitars I have ever played. I put it up to the $500 Martin, Gibson, and Taylor along with a few others. Nothing beats the sound of the Martin, but this Ibonez came damn close. This Ibonez has its own distinctive sound quality and feel like no other in its class. It sounds as beautiful as it looks. Yes, Martin sounds a little better on and off the amp but couldn't bring myself to pay $500 bucks for something that looks so dull and boring with no built in tuner or any extra effects.
This is a great sounding guitar for a great price. Its meant to be plugged in. I play in a cover band doing lots of 80s and this works awesome on all the ballad stuff.. Think Every Rose has its thorn type of sound or the Bon Jovi stuff. I have done some acoustic gigs with it as well and got lots of complements about the look and sound. I also play an older Fender but the electronics in the Ibanez are 100 times better. No feedback problems. I have run it direct to the board and actually ran it through my Fender amp on clean etc and its perfect. The reverse phase is the key. Thats what gives it the plugged in acoustic sound... you will know what I mean when you hear it. With that said if you are playing acoustic blue grass then this is not for your. Un-plugged its average, the body is thin so the sound projection is not like a Jumbo, but it still is rich in tone. Love the size, feels like an electric in your hands. I pick mine up at my local music store. They had it on sale for 100 bucks cheaper which surprised me. I usually try them out and then go to MF to buy but I lucked out in this case. Mine was set up by the local guy so the action was spot on just low enough with no buzz.
I have a $3000 Breedlove as my main performing guitar and wanted something as a backup, and possibly to use in place of it, something cooler looking, a little less folky. First I bought a Yamaha axp900 for $700 and HATED it. Terrible action, metallic sound, too-thin neck, zero soul. Sent it back and bought this (played it in the store first, what a concept) and I basically love it. But... I may return this one. The action is actually a little TOO low, and when I tried to loosen the truss rod found that it's already totally loose, which suggests a problem. Also, unless there's a way to adjust the built-in chorus, it's USELESS--way too heavy and out-of-tune sounding to be of any practical value. But otherwise the guitar sounds very good plugged in (MUCH better than the hyped Yamaha--more wooden and natural) and is absolutely gorgeous. I can't stop staring at it!
I picked this up this weekend and have enjoyed it very much. I purchased it with the Roland AC-33 acoustic amp and the two seem to work great together. Love the loop feature and the guitar is lightweight and sounds great plugged in. I think it's a great guitar for small live shows, such as coffee houses ect.... The only downside is that the guitar does not have much projection when not plugged in, the reason i gave it an 8.
