The Ibanez AEF1812E 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 12 string AEF1812E features a deeper body to enhance its true acoustic quality while the Spruce top and Mahogany back and sides offers up a wide dynamic response and meaty tone. The gloss black finish helps to make the laser-engraved fire rosette really pop.
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 of tone.
For plugged-in performance, the Ibanez SPT preamp on the AEF1812E 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.

Comments about Ibanez AEF1812E 12-String Acoustic-Electric Guitar:
This is a very affordable 12 string and it's pretty good looking. Sounds okay unplugged and the on-board tuner is a great feature. The craftsmanship is not that great: fit and finish are a bit lacking and the varnish is lumpy. Once plugged into an amp (I'm using a pretty nice one) is when you'll notice this guitar needs to go back. It's either super tinny or super bassey - no matter how much you shape the sound using the on-board EQ, you'll never get it to sound like it does when unplugged. It sounds very exaggerated plugged in and I couldn't find a nice all-around clean, natural tone. I want to give it 2 stars because it's cheaply built and sounds like it too, but it was so affordable that I added another star to make 3. This is definitely an entry level guitar. Since I am not looking for a super high end 12 string, I decided to save up another 50-100 bucks to get something one step up. If you can spend a little bit more, I suggest you do so. This guitar is cheap.
