I've been playing this guitar for about a year. It compairs well with some much more expensive guitars that I have used. I like the jumbo body and do not think I could go back to a smaller guitar. That being said, my wife and my nephew (both have smaller builds) have trouble with the jumbo body. This is a big guitar. It has a nice full tone and can fill a room. I like the neck, it is slightly thinner but has a smooth fast feel. I have seen reviews complaining about the frets, but they are perfect on mine. One thing some players may not like is the lack of inlayed dots on the fret board. This does not bother me, and there are small markers on the side of the fret board. My only gripe is that I would have liked a cutaway, but that is feature on the electric acoustic version of this guitar. This is a great guitar and way to go Ibanez to produce yet another guitar that is as good if not better than guitars 3 and 4 times the price.

This guitar looks nicer than it sounds. The action is a little high and it doesn't produce a whole lot of sound, even strumming hard on it. I don't think the exotic wood used carries harmonics well or something. We ended up trading the guitar because it was hard on the fingers to get enough sound out of it.

Amazing

By folk strummer

from Memphis

I bought this guitar trying upgrade from my beginner model to an "Intermediate" instrument until I could afford a nicer one, but considering the quality of my Ibanez, I won't be upgrading for a long time, if at all. This guitar will be my main instrument for many years to come.

I have this guitar for about two years now. It offers me consistent quality with a great tone. Nice play on the fretboard and durability. The only thing I would wish for is a cut-away for the lower frets.

Looks that kill

By VitaminDean

from G.R. , Mi

This thing get ooooo's and aaahhhhh's. By far the best looking figured top for the price, it is stunning. Not an imperfection on it. The setup is good, it was in tune when I got it! The EW comes with a spare saddle and shimes, also a bridge pin. The sound is a little different than a spruce top, but this guitar "is" different. You will not believe its good looks.

owned it until i had a bad day

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

i was pretty much sold on this guitar when i first saw it, before even playing it. i know now, that you shouldn't buy a guitar just because it looks great, and that sound is more important. i had this guitar for a few weeks but smashed it after having a bad day. somehow, i still wonder if i should buy another one. only down fall is that the ound doesn't match the looks. sounnds great, but looks better. however, like i said, i still think about buying another one from time to time.

Great guitar for this price range

By Kreed632

from Conway, SC

See all my reviews

I played this one in one of our local music stores, and was very impressed with it. The tone is of good quality, but what you would expect of a cheaper acoustic. As far as the looks go, you really could not get better for under $300. Overall, this is an ideal acoustic for any beginner or intermidiate guitarist. I own one Ibanez solid body electic, and I will never part with it. The quality they can put in instruments while maintaining affordability is always impressive.

Great Guitar, Great Price!

By jet62095

from New England

The finish on this guitar is so unique, perfect for anyone like myself who isn't just looking for a generic looking acousic guitar. The sound is rich and deep, sounds like a $1,000 instrument.

Great Guitar!!!

By Kris-jhjSw

from Price, UT

After three minutes of playing this guitar at GC I new I had to have it. I originally went in to get an acoustic/electric model but could not pass up this amazing instrument. The price should be at least double for the sound that it produces. Just for comparison I played a few higher end guitars and this one was just as good. Get it and you will not be disappointed.

Incredible!!!

I got this guitar and I am amazed. This thing is the Pam Anderson of Acoustics! It looks beautiful, obviously, and has great lows and mids, all for an excellent price. It has excellent parts and great Ibanez quality. For anyone from a beginner to a pro, I'd say buy this guitar!

Been playing on it for a year, never had better!

By RoaDMaN23

I've been playing on this guitar for a year now, and I have to say that after 8 years of playing, this guitar is unparalleled in looks, sound, and playability. I haven't had to change the strings yet, and the guitar still stays in perfect tune, even after I try to throw it off. Definitely the finest piece of Ibanez craftsmanship available for the money.

Alot for the money

By Believer

from Parker, CO

Purchased this based on a friends recommendation as a great guitar for the money and that it is. Two things wrong with the one I picked up. The action at first seemed so high I was afraid something was wrong with the bridge or the neck was warped, and the strings were dead. Twenty minutes worth of work on the bridge and a new set of strings and it sounds, feels, plays and looks like it should have cost alot more. I am actually thinking about buying another EW for a backup.

EW=exotic wood

By Timrogersband

from Houston

The best guitar I've had since the Warlock. I couldn't figure out who EW was though. Best looking, jumbo size and sound. Can't wait till I put my favorite strings on it, I'll probably sleep with it.

Ibanez Exotic Wood EW20AS

By PinkFloydster45

from Muncie, IN

See all my reviews

My buddy bought one of these and let me play it a couple of times. It has the sound capability to fill a large room. The finish also just looks gorgeous. One feature that particularly grabbed my attention was the fairly thin neck profile. I am accustomed to a strat neck, and this was pretty comfortable compared to some acoustics I have played. Did I mention that it frets pretty easy? When I get the money, I will have to invest in one of these babies.

Best Acoustic I Have Ever Owned

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

This is by far the best acoustic guitar I have ever owned...It gives the best bang for the buck, and doesn't look half bad either. Ibanez really pulled this beauty off.

Great buy for the price!

By Woody-y07bg

from Hineston, LA

I just got mine a couple of weeks ago and I can't put it down. I've been playing for 30 years and haven't found a guitor that plays, sound and looks as good as this! Only down fall is I didn't get the one with the pick-up, but I'm took care of that also.

Great Sound

By Kevin-x2csl

I bought this guitar about a year and a half ago and I still can't get over how great it sounds. After about a year playing it, I dropped an L.R. Baggs M1 active pickup into it and it still sounds great plugged in. One of my favorite features is the jumbo body and the deep sound that it puts out.

Good Guitar For the Price

By Gullyhead

from ct

See all my reviews

My roomate brought this guitar with him to our dorm. Looks nice and stays in tune well. I was able to get the strings nice and low and the neck feels nice. The only problem i have with this guitar: 1) This guitar is way too quiet and 2) Its hard to keep the guitar from getting fret buzz (i bumped it once and it was buzzing like a bee). Good guitar for the price... id still recommend it.

Good bang for the buck

By The Rev

from Temecula, CA

See all my reviews

I picked this up as a cheap guitar to take camping, to the beach, etc., not wanting to take my other, very expensive, accoustics. I was impressed first by the beauty of the ash body. The action is good for a cheap guitar and the sound is bright with very little richness to the lower notes, but acceptable for what I wanted.After my friend at Guitar Center came down on the price to something I could not refuse, I brought it home and spent about three hours playing it. I don't regret the purchase at all. A great guitar for beginners, or a cheap on to take to the woods!
