      Ibanez EW20ASE Exotic Wood Figured Ash Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar (512118)

Figured ash for exotic looks and powerful sound.

There are a lot of guitars to choose from. The Ibanez EW20ASE Exotic Wood Ash Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar is different. Singular in looks and sound because it's made from exotic figured ash. The grain patterns are striking. It's amazing to find an exotic wood guitar in this price range.

For faithful reproduction of acoustic tone, a B-Band UST pickup is paired with the Ibanez AEQ-SP2 preamp with onboard tuner. Tune anytime, anywhere. You'll also be ready for whatever connections are available; the EW20ASE is equipped with balanced 1/4" and XLR outputs.

Paired with the fine wood are high-end cosmetic appointments also found on guitars costing much more: an abalone rosette, Ibanez chrome die-cast tuners and a natural high-gloss finish. If you've been holding back on an acoustic guitar purchase because you haven't found the right features at the right price, your wait is over.

Case sold separately.

    I have owned this guitar, or should I say it has owned me for more than a year. I went to GC to purchase a Fender Acoustic ad I am a Fender guy first and Ibanez guy second. When I saw the figured ash hanging on the wall I immediately thought that it was beautiful and way out of my price range, between $300 and $600. So I played all the other brands, Fender, Taylor, Gibson, Yamaha, etc first. It kept calling me and I kept thinking that I could not afford it. Finally I thought, what the heck, just because I play it doesn?t mean I have to buy it, right? As I was getting it down I realized that it was unbelievably in my price range. I tuned it, as I always do, because any self-respecting guitar player tunes before he plays. (Should be a rule at GC, I'm just saying)... Once I started playing the standard acoustic open chords I was simply amazed, immediately I went into power chords then jazz chords. The on-board tuner is great, the Notch Filter controls feedback like no other, Fishman Pup is phenomenal, and EQ is exactly what it should be. What a blessing this guitar is, I had to buy it right away, and Paul at GC Tempe AZ, worked me a smokin' deal, and the rest is history. I play it no less than every day on stage and off. Only God could make this wood so beautiful and only Ibanez could make a guitar this awesome. I get compliments everywhere we play and the never-ending "Wow, what kind of Guitar is that?" Try - You'll Buy It...

    The look, feel, playability of this guitar are a 5 star. I use Elixir lights on it and they behave well. It does sound decent amplified. It's no Taylor Expression System but does well to hold its own in that department. I like the fact that there is an XLR jack to plug into to bring the signal down to low impedance mic level. I played this once in a guitar store and fell in love with it. Had not planned on buying another guitar but this one was just a really nice guitar for the price. You would expect to pay more. Everyone will comment on how beautiful this guitar looks. The tuner is really nice and will get you close to perfect tuning. A little tweak might be necessary. Good intonation and action. Great sound unplugged. I give it a 4 because after about 2 years, I had to replace the jack. $20 to replace myself was not that much but it could not be repaired in any way. Works great after the repair. Have gigged with it, played it at church and my daughter also uses it to gig as well. The most used guitar in my collection. I give it a thumbs up. Keep the volume on it all the way up when playing over a PA or amp.
