Overview

A large body guitar isn't always what you want if the sound isn't right. The Ibanez AEL Series, however, has the size, projection and beautiful tones that you need for any situation. The largest of acoustic guitar body offered by Ibanez, all AEL Series guitars, including the AEL152ETBS, is an excellent choice for players who want an expansive, natural acoustic sound.

Plugged in, it benefits from an Ibanez under saddle pickup and Ibanez SPT Shape Shifter preamp with onboard tuner delivering a sweet cascade of acoustic tones, never harsh or tinny. The AEL152ETBS features a solid mix of popular tonewoods with a spruce top, maple back and sides, and rosewood bridge and fingerboard, accented by a pearl rosette, chrome die-cast tuners, and a transparent blue sunburst finish.

Case sold separately.

    Comments about Ibanez AEL152ETBS 12-String Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    This is an excellent guitar. 12 strings are usually tricky to play, and are not used as much as their 6-string bretheren. The large body and the very good electronics produce a full-bodied volume. If you want to go on stage, this is a good one to have. Surprisingly, the Martin 12 is mushy and goes out of tune very fast. The Taylor is excellent but very expensive. The Epiphone, inexpensive, cheap, has a rich deep sound, but hard to play and quite heavy. I am a finger picker and the Ibanez AEL152ETBS meets my needs really well.

      Comments about Ibanez AEL152ETBS 12-String Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      12-string guitars are more particular and persnickety among guitar player than most other kinds. The AEL152ETBS is a challenge for beginners; for experienced players, a new world. This instrument does not like an inexperienced hand. I have owned Martin, Taylor, and Epiphone 12-strings, and each has its charms, attractions, and sonic abilities, but the AEL152ETBS is way above those mostly expensive choices. Those who can handle it will find it is both a challenge and a marvel at allowing a great expression of sound. The Martin 12 is rather weak and mushy; the Taylor excellent but not rich enough. This one, with a superb electronics suite opens up a stage to a one man band. I am a finger picker from way back. If you like Leo Kottke and Dick Rossmini style of playing, you know what I do. Once the tuning gets fixed in, and most 12 stringers are hard to get just right, the AEL152ETBS settles down into free af intonation errors. Hook it up to a single speaker like the small, narrow Custom series, and begin to have a lot of fun. For the money, this is a great buy. Aesthetics reveal a really nice finish in blue, and its not too heavy compared to others. The electronics offers a built in tuner and a sophisticated ability to modulate the sound. An excellent instrument!
