I've bought 3 of these guitars because I "WAS" an Ibanez fan. One was for a friend. 2 of the guitars had tuning keys that "grinded" when turned &hard to tune. My other one had "crackly" electronics that died completely after a short while. Ibanez would not honor their warranty & I'm still stuck with it. Considering guitar prices, it's an o.k. guitar. Just don't expect the Ibanez Co. to help you.

They don't make 'em much better than this

By Alex Bond

from Boston, MA

Comments about Ibanez V70CE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

Buy it. For all those reasons above, if you're looking for a great acoustic for the price, either to start or expand your collection, you can't go wrong the Ibanez V70.
It's a simple guitar, you have 20 frets, tight machine heads, a wide body that's cutaway to reach higher frets. The controls for plugged in action are easy to adjust when shaping your tone. It's comfortable and sounds fantastic both plugged and unplugged. The only downfall is the straplocks, which are close to the body and make it a bit difficult to attach some straps.
Phenomenal. Sounds great, just the right amount of reverb from the soundhole, just a joy to listen to and to play.
This guitar is a steal! This prce for a fantastic addition to your rig, I've never had a problem with it. At such an affordable price, you might think that you sacrifice tone quality, but I've received lots of compliments on the tone from people at shows and from videos of this beauty.

Great guitar for a great price

By Stephen C. Hermanson

from South Carolina

Comments about Ibanez V70CE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

This guitar has become one of my closest friends. I can't imagine not having it to play, and I wouldn't want another one right now. One day, when I'm a little more affluent, I will probably buy something nicer, like a Taylor, but now, this guitar is all I need. Plus it's acoustic-electric, which my sister's wasn't. So if you need a guitar to play that has a good sound for a college-student's wallet size, buy this one. You won't be disappointed.
The preamp and controls are solidly built. The battery compartment has a tendency to slip if you don't make absolutely sure that the catch has clicked securely in place--that's my only warning. The frets are good, the tuners are great quality, and, although I would have liked a solid-top, the laminate still gives awesome sound.
Everything on this guitar is well built. I can't find a single flaw with the construction. Solid sound, and good looks.
I am a fairly new guitarist, so this is my first guitar. but I've made the rounds playing other people's guitars for the past year and a half. I learned to play on my sister's Breedlove and probably would still be playing that if she wasn't moving away. I've played Taylors and a Yamaha and various other brands that aren't really worth mentioning. I've played enough good and bad guitars to know the difference. This is a decent guitar. It's not a Breedlove or a Taylor, but it's a great guitar for someone who can't afford a Breedlove or a Taylor. It's dependable and sturdy and it has a great price. I would buy it again with no questions asked. For the money, you just can't ask for more.

great guitar

By georgie martinez

from Undisclosed

Comments about Ibanez V70CE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

Pros:
effortless tuning pegs
high quality pick-up
versitile playing style
responsive versitile controls
highly pleasing appearence
well hidden 1/4 jack
cons:
slightly heavy
no on-board tuner
this guitar is very solid and produces great tones, I am able to play anything from funk to blues on it without any adjustment, and when you plug it in the side controls take away any need to adjust your amp, and the tuners are effortless, and the way the jack is integrated with a strap stud is convienient, the only problem I have with this guitar is that it is a bit heavy, not too bad though, with a strap you wouldn't even feel it, and I would have liked a built in tuner, but i already have an external one, so it isn't a big deal really
it is a great value, for the price you have a guitar that can play bluesy tones or if you plug it in with a distortion, gives you some beefy metal tones and still screeches when you want it to. with that the tuners are efoortless and are actually quite pleasant looking along with the black finish, and the white trim adds a nice contrast to it and really makes it pop.

2 years and still going

By Bret Maples

from New Mexico

Comments about Ibanez V70CE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

For a country/Southern Rock artist like me the Ibanez V70 is a great guitar! I bought it used from my sister inlaw 2 years ago and the only problem I have had with it is the bridge has started to lift behind the peggs. That in it self may not be do to the low quality of the guitar itself but more the conditions it has been in (humidity, hot car during transport, ect.) I have plans to reset the bridge wich is somthing I would not do if I did not beleave the guitar was worth it. It has a great sound plugged or unplugged, responds beautifully to finger picking, and just has an overall beauty in itself. I had to adjust the action a little bit but thats to be expected with any guitar. You have to fine tune it so to speak for your comfort or style of play. I love this guitar and will never get rid of it not even when it wears out I will hang it on the wall and still keep it.

    Comments about Ibanez V70CE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I bought this guitar for my husband. The electronics were bad & he contacted the Ibanez co. They would not honor their warranty & even sell him new electronics at a discount. He had 5 Ibanez acoustic-electric guitars & the Ibanez rep. was not helpful with him about the problem. As of now, he has disposed with all Ibanez guitars but one & he likes it a lot or it would go, also. I wish they'd been more thoughtful about the problem. He probably won't buy another one.

    5 years and still sounding great!

    By inbloom27

    from Crystal Lake, IL

    Comments about Ibanez V70CE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I bought this guitar 5 years ago and for the past 4, I've been doing regular gigs with it. Somehow, I got an excellent model of it because it sounds incredible both unplugged and plugged in. The neck is very comfortable and though the electronics don't have many variables, it still shines when plugged in. I've tried to replace this with a Takamine and an Ovation and they couldn't stand up to this guitar. I probably got really lucky when I bought this but to me, it's a wonderful guitar!

    Comments about Ibanez V70CE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I actually bought 3 of these at different times. The keys had to be replaced on one, & the second one had high action which could be corrected. The third had "crackly" electronics which finally died. Ibanez would not replace the piezo pickup which was under warranty. I have owned several Ibanez guitars but will probably not buy another unless it's very cheap. Ibanez accused me of buying it at a yard sale. VERY DISRESPECTFUL!

    Comments about Ibanez V70CE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    This was my first acoustic. I walked into the acoustic room at [@] picked it up, began playing and immediately fell in love with it. It was exactly what I was looking for. The action was very high when I first got it though, so I had to lower it. It's also very bulky and large, so if you're looking for a concert sized acoustic, don't get. Other than that, it's a great acoustic.

    Comments about Ibanez V70CE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    The guitar started out playing well, and then it all went downhill. The screws began coming out of the tuning pegs and a crack in the base of the neck began to form. Not only does this guitar get out of tune easily, it is very difficult to play. No matter how much you adjust the action, it is always difficult to press down the strings and there is always an annoying fret buzz.

    • Perferct For Jamming

    Comments about Ibanez V70CE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I wanted a cheap decent acoustic/electric guitar that wouldn't break my bank and be a good compliment to my picking style of playing. After having read some of the reviews that was already posted, I was sold on this Ibanez model. This guitar was pretty well ready to go out of the box when I received it. After a couple of weeks though, I decided to tailor the action down to my liking by having the nut lowered. We also changed the cheap strings that it came with. The technician threw on some 10's. Now this baby is sounding really great plugged or unplugged. When going through a speaker cabinet, I add an eq pedal. The end result now is, I can better control my high's and low's for a cleaner,brighter sound. I even tried it with a distortion pedal and to my surprise, sounded great.

            I bought this guitar to get back into playing. I had played for 5 years previously before having to sell everything. I love this guitar, I had the strings changed by a local shop and got an amp. It sounds great with or without the amp but best with the amp. :) Can't beat the value!

            Oh, I got the transparent blue... absolutely beautiful. Looks like Blue Burst.
