I just picked this bass up a few days ago after a long search for an acoustic/electric bass. I liked this bass in terms of looks, usable volume while not plugged in, and general playing dynamics. I'd go so far as to say that I liked it better than the basses that cost twice as much. The tuner works well, and is a very handy feature. I was shocked when I plugged it into my home amp (Peavey TKO 115 S) how "big" the sound was. Also pleased with how quiet the electronics are. No residual hum or whine here. Very pleased with initial quality, sound, and fit/finish. As with all Ibanez guitars, the neck is fast and allows for clean, quick playing. Can't imagine getting more for the money than this. Less expensive than the Ibanez solid I started with 20 years ago, and puts it to shame in terms of tone. Highly recommended for just about any type of music.

I bought this bass on impulse. It really rumbled through a Fender Rumble 100, so I bought it. Over the 2 or 3 years I've owned it, I've decided that I'll keep it, but I'd never EVER buy another acoustic bass. By physics, it's just NOT LOUD ENOUGH. Can't hold it's own in an acoustic jam. Also, the electronics have let me down more times than I can count. The feedback can be ridiculous, and for some reason the battery connection just fades in and out so that you can't rely on it whatsoever. The tuner stays stuck on sometimes. The electronics just aren't reliable like a good ol' Jazz Bass. So don't think this is gonna be a sweet jack-of-all-trades bass. Definitely not. But I STILL LOVE PLAYING IT by myself, unplugged. The action is sweet, and the woody slappy tone inspires me like nothing else does. Yes, you CAN slap on it. Quite well actually, especially if you install the taller bridge piece that comes with it to fix the buzz. So there you have it. Acoustic bass is a totally sweet instrument to play, but the instrument itself is the most monumentally useless thing in the world. What a long friggin' comment. Worth it though.

Some of the frets on mine require more pressure for a correct note than others. I'm thinking this is due to fret height? very minor issue.

        Comments about Ibanez AEB10E Acoustic-Electric Bass Guitar with Onboard Tuner:

        Let me start off by saying you cannot compare this to Any electric bass. Acoustic bass is an instrument all of its own, and if you get one thinking it will be just as good plugged in you are wrong. I didn't say you wouldn't be impressed but just wrong haha This thing is AMAZING!! My search began after playing upright bass in my school bluegrass band and I didn't want to fork out the money for (or have to carry) a huge upright bass. I started out on electric bass anyway and wanted an acoustic instrument to give me those tones but that I could still do my runs that I had practiced up on my electric fluidly. Well this thing bridged the gap perfectly. After trying several out in stores (Johnson, Washburn, Dean) none of them really seemed to "work" for lack of better words. They just didn't project sound well enough without buzzing for them to even be considerable at all.. However, I then tried the Breedlove Solo. Now That thing was Dream, but for over 800 it was just too expensive.. I went out on a limb and got the Ibanez AEB10. After being a long time user of Ibanez electric basses and acoustic guitars I knew their craftsmanship was worthy and would certainly be better than any Dean or Johnson. I thought I could get it and pay a guitar tech to strip the frets and smooth it out to make it a fretless to further portray the tones of an upright... But then it came to my front door. This thing Blew. Me. Away.. Right out of the box Perfect low action with ZERO fret buzz when played just behind the sound hole. I'm sure some may need adjustment when they arrive, and it comes with a higher bridge and truss rod adjuster in case you want/need to, but mine was perfect. I may just hold back on stripping the frets because it sounds that good! Seriously. If you're worried about not being heard when jamming use a pick and it will make up for it, and when you perform live you'll be eq'd anyway. Also it is also Much better than AEB5. The wood really does make a significant difference.

          I recently received this guitar from Musiciansfriend. I wanted a bass I could play without having to hook up any electronics. Everything is working fine and I was rather pleased with it.

          Today I decided to change the strings to Elixir Acoustic Bass Strings 14502 that I ordered along with the guitar

          ((( MAMA MIA!! WHAT A DIFFERENCE!! )))

          Suddenly I feel as though I purchased a much more expensive acoustic bass guitar. I'm very satisfied!!!

          Honestly, I never remember guitar strings making this much of a difference before. Guess those original strings put on by Ibanez weren't very good

            Comments about Ibanez AEB10E Acoustic-Electric Bass Guitar with Onboard Tuner:

            I recently purchased this bass and to say it simply, i am astonished. The guitar (and case) arrived in pristine condition, all as one, very solid, and perfectly tuned. I began playing and i couldn't believe what i was hearing, the natural tone is quite unique and very clear. This bass guitar sounds and looks like any top-of-the-line instrument but obtained at a very decent price point.
            The build is very well-done with solid/sturdy construction and the finish looks perfect as well (the inlays look sweet too).
            In all honesty, i couldn't be happier with my purchase. Thanks Musicians Friend!

            well this was sold as new, was used. It had a ton of issues. Neck, frets, finish, uneven sound across strings. Compared it with a friends fender and this thing has way less volume, punch, tone. Ordered a fender. Best of luck. This one was returned.

              Comments about Ibanez AEB10E Acoustic-Electric Bass Guitar with Onboard Tuner:

              I noticed what I thought was a very good price on the Ibanez AEB5E, ordered it and received it about two weeks ago. After more research I decided to upgrade to the AEB10E, with its all mahogany body except for the spruce sound board and rosewood frets. I also liked the idea of getting an upgrade in the electronics. This violin sunburst finish with understated accents is gorgeous. It you want a "head-turner," this finish will do the job. The upgrade was money very well spent. As owner of a 1956 Gibson J 45, I know what a great tone sounds like and how quality materials endure. Frankly, I am amazed at what Ibanez has accomplished with the AEB10E as well as the lessor AEV5E in terms of sound quality for the price they are asking. There is considerable difference in the acoustic resonance (sound projection) of the AEV10E and the AEV5E. With a spruce top on the AEV10E, one might expect that. However, one needs to also consider the difference in price if you're on an especially tight budget. As an ole rocker myself, who focused primarily on keyboard and rhythm guitar back-in-the-day, I am now undertaking to learn a bit of bass guitar since both my son and grandson are now respectable guitar players. If you are just now starting out on bass and want the acoustic sound, the AEB5E would be an excellent buy for you. If you are more experienced or just want an acoustic bass with high quality electronics, constructed of traditional superior guitar-making materials, for the money, it's hard to see how you could beat the price/quality ratio you receive with the AEB10E. Did I mention that the customer service at Musicians Friend is awesome? It is!

              Bought as-is for repair, which turned out to be reseating one fret to remove fret buzz and ... well, that's it. Scratches noted in listing barely visible; one tuning machine improperly fitted -- looks screwy but works fine and not worth fixing. Solid top, great tobacco sunburst finish.
