Feedback resistant, clear highs, strong midrange punch, and improved electronics.

The Ibanez AEF18LE Left-Handed Acoustic-Electric Guitar features the improved feedback-resistant AEF body that offers an ergonomic and comfortable shape. With sophisticated electronics for amplified performance, this guitar gets the job done at an affordable price.

The spruce top and mahogany back and sides provide the AEF18LE with clear highs and a strong midrange punch. The neck dimensions are comfortable and perfectly suited for playing for melodic lines and chords. Other refinements on this guitar include a laser engraved fire rosette, chrome die-cast tuners, rosewood bridge and fretboard, and Ivorex II nut and saddle for increased sustain and clarity.

For plugged-in performance, the Ibanez SPT preamp on the AEF18LE has a 3-band tone control, shape control, and phase switch for feedback reduction. The preamp also features a built-in electronic tuner and both 1/4" and XLR outputs for increased versatility.

  • Lefty

    As reviewed by Mike on 7/26/2011

    I ordered this guitar during the 4th of July sale. I was tempted to buy a $200 range because I needed to budget. But I followed some advice - buying the cheaper guitar may not be worth it in the end. I'm satisfied with this guitar. I'm a beginner and I found the on board tuner extremely helpful (since I'm not good enough to tune it by ear). The gloss and workman ship on this guitar is nice. I'm satisfied with the sound it makes. To me it sounds better than the Fender CD100 Left-Handed (but this could be because of my taste). I think this guitar has better highs and lows. I find the tone suitable to play a lot of alternative songs like Under the Bridge, and maybe some Incubus song - if I get good enough. It was worth every dollar. Con: this guitar has a strange shape and may not fit the majority of dreadnaught cases out there - this is due to the fatter bottom and thin top. The contour is much more drastic. It might make an important impact on the way you hold this guitar and how comfortable you feel. I can't wait to get good enough to play something good, then hook it up to an amp.

  • Django Smooth, I Loves his Ibanez AEF18LT

    As reviewed by Larry Morris on 10/8/2013

    It's not often that I can find a left-hand acoustic guitar in Guitar Center. Normally I always have to order them online from other venders. It's as if Guitar Center has something against left-handers. But low and behold, I stop by the store, just to kill some time. When I look in the acoustic room, and their it was on the wall. So I go in the room, take it down. And from the first strum, I was in love with her. It has a beautiful voice. So sweet and bright. I love it. I found out that it had EXP11 light strings. .012-053. So I picked up a set of EXP's for my old Acoustic. Put them on. But it was not the same sound as the Ibanez AEF18LT. So I had them to order it for me. And I'm glad I did. I'm an on-line music student, at Berklee Music College in Boston. If your money is tight. The AEF18LT is just right. Django 10-07-2013

  • Good Considering the Price

    As reviewed by jamey wylie on 1/6/2012

    I have been playing for a few years and know what a good acoustic should sound like. I have owned Alvarezs, Takamines, Washburns, etc. I recently received this guitar as a gift. It is not the kind of guitar I would buy for myself considering I generally stay away from Ibanez acoustics because I have always found their sound and playability sub-par. The first thing that I noticed about this guitar was the extremely high action (which was promptly fixed through a professional setup and is now very playable). The second thing I noticed was the acoustic sound-very flat and one dimensional, with very little of the brightness that I generally would see in a spruce top acoustic guitar. I thought maybe this was a byproduct of the strings but after a set up and string change this is still an issue. When I am playing at home I generally reach for my Alvarez when I'm seeking a more satisfying acoustic sound. The third thing that I noticed is that the tuners are garbage, I am constantly having to retune this guitar. You can hear it go out of tune while playing it. I plan to change out the tuenrs ASAP. I have owned far cheaper guitars that have stayed in tune longer. HOWEVER, I hooked up this guitar to my church's PA and I could not believe the sound! Wow! This guitar was truly built to be played through an amp or pa because it comes alive. I now use this guitar everytime I play at church or a plugged venue. If you are looking for a good lefty acoustic to play live in a church or coffee shop setting this may be a good choice after a setup and change of tuners.
