OVERVIEW

Luxury appointments at a down-to-earth price.

Check out the Ibanez SGT122 SAGE SERIES Acoustic Guitar and you'll be amazed at the retro look and feel, inspired by the 1st Golden Age of Ibanez acoustic guitars. The shape of the headstock, body, pickguard and bridge recall a time when things were just a bit more ornate, and pride in craftsmanship was much easier to find.

There's something almost magical about the sound of a 12-string. There's nothing quite like the natural chorus sound. The dreadnought body shape is particularly well-suited for making yourself heard in a group, but the tones are certainly sweet enough for it to stand on it's own.

FEATURES
  • 12-string
  • Dreadnought body
  • Spruce top
  • Mahogany back and sides
  • Pearloid rosette
  • Ibanez chrome die-cast tuners
  • High gloss finish

Plays very well, good action, good intonation. Fingerboard is finished nicely, no sharp fret ends, etc.The body is on the smaller size for a dreadnought (especially a 12-string) and the top is laminated so the sound is a little thin. You won't mistake the sound for a Guild or a Taylor but it is very playable, much more so than a typical 12-string (or even 6-string) in this price range.Overall - you can't got wrong for the price. I like mine very much.

Good playability and intonation. The body is a bit small and shallow for a 12-string. Combined with the all-laminate construction, the sound is a bit small and weak, especially on the bottom end.

That being said, it's still fun to play and is not booming like some jumbo 12-strings and won't wake your neighbors. I wouldn't get this guitar if you plan on playing out in public but its great to hack around on in the house. Very well-made for the price.
No special features.
Seems very well-made, especially for the money. Even fret ends, no over-glue, very straight neck, no buzzing. I think this is the strongpoint of this guitar.
A very playable guitar for the $$. In expensive but not at all sloppy. No buzzing, good intonation, consistent string height up the neck.

WATCH OUT!

By Justin

from Manalapan, NJ

Comments about Ibanez SGT122 SAGE SERIES 12- String Acoustic Guitar:

This was an excellent 12 string guitar and after my 8th grade graduation, i had just enough money for it. I remember that as soon as i got it i couldnt put it down for days. 6 strings sounded too bland to me for a while. However, after a year it dried out to the point where the arched top sunk INward and made the bridge collapse. Once that happened, the guitar was basically ruined. I'm not sure if its because i left it by my window or if my room was just a bad place to keep it, but it died nontheless. So if you buy this, watch out for its dryness and make SURE it doesnt dry out

My new 12-string

By luthman007

from Paoli, IN

Comments about Ibanez SGT122 SAGE SERIES 12- String Acoustic Guitar:

I received my Ibanez SGT122 yesterday. It arrived in perfect shape. I scrutinized the complete guitar and found absolutely nothing wrong - at all. The finish is great, the style is great, the action is great, and the price was great! It sounds beautiful. No tinny noise, no fret buzz, and sounds like an orchestra in the room! If you don't have much money, and want a fine 12-string instrument, then pick the Ibanez SGT122! Thanks Musician's Friend!

Looks great but.......

By Anonymous

Comments about Ibanez SGT122 SAGE SERIES 12- String Acoustic Guitar:

The sound is very thin. I played many 12 strings in the store today, and compared to some the sound was wimpy! Although the guitar is a beauty to look at,I wouldn't spend my money on it. I ended up going with a Takamine 12er.

By ThirdMan333

Comments about Ibanez SGT122 SAGE SERIES 12- String Acoustic Guitar:

I love this guitar gret price and sound. But i accidently had mine tip over and at the start of the neck and at the end of the headstock it cracked. If it was better wood it probally wouldn't have done that. But i have a awesome grandpa who fixed it up great. Good Guitar, just don't drop it.

Comments about Ibanez SGT122 SAGE SERIES 12- String Acoustic Guitar:

The guitar is accurate to the description in all regards, and sounds nice. The action on mine is just a little bit too high for my liking, but its still playable and I've never tried to adjust it. I would recommend it,

Looks are Great, but not everything

By ThegreatAmericanFlight

from Madtown WI

See all my reviews

Comments about Ibanez SGT122 SAGE SERIES 12- String Acoustic Guitar:

Although aesthetically this guitar looks and feels great, it sounds very thin. The sound is very weak, tinny, and thin. I was very let down the second I got this. I just figured it's crap strings. So I bought a set up elixer lights and slapped them on...to no avail it still sounded dead inside. This guitar does not sing like a chorus like it should. Most 12 strings sound beautiful, this one sounds like it has no soul.

Outstanding 12 string

By Geetarist35

from Austin, TX

Comments about Ibanez SGT122 SAGE SERIES 12- String Acoustic Guitar:

I have had this guitar for a couple of months now and I am really impressed with the sound & playability of this 12 string. I tried a couple of others in this price range and I have to say hands down this is the best. This is the fourth Ibanez I have owned and they really seem to consistently crank out great guitars. It has a nice neck radius and full sound, not boomy & with nice appointments. Throw a mic in front of it and it really shines! I would recommend this guitar to players at any level.

Comments about Ibanez SGT122 SAGE SERIES 12- String Acoustic Guitar:

I wasn't really looking to buy anther guitar, but when i was at a music store, I picked just about every guitar in the store. When I picked up a Ibanez 12 string (sgt-122) I was blown away. It sounded & played better than the 1,000.00 ovation next to it. My wife heared it and bought it for me. I've owned just about any guitar you can imagen, this is by far my favorite ever , even moreso than my alverez 12 string. if you don't have one, I strongly recomend that you run ,get one & see for yourself.

Comments about Ibanez SGT122 SAGE SERIES 12- String Acoustic Guitar:

I have been looking for a 12 string for the last couple of months when I saw this at my local guitar shop. I got it for a really good price because it was a factory second( there is supposedly a blemish some where on the guitar I can't even find), and all I can say is, wow! This is a very well built guitar (especially for the price) and even at full retail it is a very good bargain. Good tone,good playability, and get this, the action is super low right from the factory. How many guitars in this price range do you know that are really set up to go right from the box for some one who really plays. The only thing you aren't getting are real solid tone woods, and really for this price who cares. If you have a budget and you want a 12 string this has got to be one of the best bargains around.

lovely sound

By gallavant

from Alabama

Comments about Ibanez SGT122 SAGE SERIES 12- String Acoustic Guitar:

I've never played a 12 string before, and my fingers are sore!! But what a beautiful sound. The technique is a little different; however, the variety and the layers of sound on this particularly responsive 12 string are amazing - from bright to mellow with just a slight change of pressure or thought - It's priced just right so that if I'd hated it, I wouldn't have felt badly about leaving it the corner or giving it to a talented friend - however, it is safe to say that it has a good home and won't be collecting dust.I'm not crazy about the hardware - pegs, tuning keys etc - while it's functional, it's inelegant. I know that "form equals function" but I prefer a few frills - sweeter lines, so to speak.

Wonderful value and I cherish it

By dirtyharry

from USA

Comments about Ibanez SGT122 SAGE SERIES 12- String Acoustic Guitar:

I have owned this guitar for a few years now, and it fits the description very well. It has a rich full sound that is great for playing those experimental lush open chords down the neck. Also, I love the spruce top. It looks and smells great, and it helps give this guitar a distinct sound. I usually use it for playing songs like Terraplane Blues and The Substitute.

Comments about Ibanez SGT122 SAGE SERIES 12- String Acoustic Guitar:

I love my Ibenez. It's got a beautiful sound, it stays in tune, and it's got incredible action for a 12 string. I'm in a band, and while recording one of my slower songs, I played it through on regular acoustic first, then on the 12 string, I preferred that sound. I strongly suggest this guitar if you're looking for a cheaper guitar with beautiful sound and easy action. It's no Gibson, but in my opinion, Ibenez is just as good. I've only had it for two weeks and I'm already playing shows with the thing-it's not electric acoustic, but when accompanied by a microphone, I can actually nearly drown out my drummer's crazy pounding! Here's a suggestion for those who bought this product or are going to purchase this product: play Nothing Else Matters by Metallica!

Good Value

By Wanderer-oU6qC

from San Jose, CA

Comments about Ibanez SGT122 SAGE SERIES 12- String Acoustic Guitar:

I bought this guitar as my third instrument to practice scales, and I was impressed by the fact that the online reviews were good. Otherwise I would normally not buy an instrument without seeing it first. My first impressions were positive, it exactly matched my expectations.This guitar is advertised on this website as having "luxury appointments for a down to earth price". The only thing that I saw that could be considered as approaching a luxury appointment was the mahogany back and side, although there are a lot of guitars that have it, some in the $200 range. The tuners were average, as were most of the materials. What was impressive was the low action with total absence of buzz. Unless someone bangs on the top strings with a thick pick (which is not what the guitar was designed for), there is no buzz on any string at any fret and the fretboard is very playable, I would say surprisingly so. The sound is not exceptional, but pleasant. 12-strings always have a richer sound than 6-strings, which may have impressed some, although this one doesn't stand out for the richness of the sound among 12-strings. The price to pay for the low action is a small penalty in sound quality, which is more evident in this model because of the laminated top, i.e. we are starting with a handicap compared to solid top models. Considering the price though, it is amazing what this guitar offers for teh price. If the neck stays as it is (which would be nice, since there aren't any adjustments, such as a truss rod), it will be a very good value. This may be why they recommend low gauge strings.There are more playable and higher quality guitars out there, but not at this price range as far as I have been able to attest. In fact, many of the more expensive guitars would trail this one in either sound and/or playability. It is strongly recommended for anyone with anything less than the highest performance expectations.

Comments about Ibanez SGT122 SAGE SERIES 12- String Acoustic Guitar:

I always wanted a Twelve String guitar, and after playing on a Six string for a year, I made the change.I have had this guitar for two months now and it has become an extension of myself. Wherever I go, this wonderful guitar follows.My friends who play guitar are amazed at how great it sounds, and they even gasp when I tell them how much I got it for.If you, like me, want to have that jingle jangle sound of a Twelve and you are low on funds, pick this baby up.You won't be sorry.

Expensive sounding guitar for a great price!

By Matt561

from Osage Beach, MO

Comments about Ibanez SGT122 SAGE SERIES 12- String Acoustic Guitar:

I bought this guitar when I saw it at a local music store and couldn't believe the price and figured it would just sound alright because it was so cheap. but i was completely wrong, this thing is solid and sounds amazing! I couldn't believe it and not only that, its very easy to play as well. I thought having 6 more strings would make the strings feel hard to push down but its really easy and quite soft feeling. I wound recomend this guitar to anyone and the amount of quality your getting for this price Simply can't be beaten.

Absolutely love this guitar, it is a joy to play. So glad I stumbled across this guitar at a local music shop. I tried a bunch of 12 strings there. This was easily the best guitar and far away the best value.

When I first held, and played this fine 12 string guitar, I could not beleave how great it sounded. I know once the word is out on the quality of this fine instrument,"both in tone and construction,"and everyone wants one, and their bought out. You'll regret not buying one. Also I recommend you get a case for it. All I can say is,YOU WILL NOT BE DISSAPOINTED!..it is a professional instrument in every respect.
