Overview

The Ibanez AEL2012ETKS 12-String Acoustic Electric Guitar sports a flamed maple top and maple & back sides. The cutaway gives you full access to the rosewood fretboard. Other features include an abalone rosette, chrome die-cast tuners, Ivorex ™ nut and saddle, and Advantage™ bridge pins.

The AEL2012ETKS is equipped to shine in any venue with the Fishman Sonicore and the AEQ-SST Shape Shifter Preamp. The Fishman Sonicore is an under-the saddle pickup designed to eliminate sonic deadspots and is made from a copolymer material in a special braided wire. The 3-band AEQ-SST Shape Shifter Preamp was specifically designed to work with the Fishman Sonicore pickup and features a tone shaper that lets you quickly and easily dial in the sound you want. The Shape Shifter is quiet and has a lot of headroom so you can get more volume before distortion sets in. It also has a phase reverse switch for eliminating feedback and an onboard tuner.

GOOD ACOUSTICALLY, GREAT WITH AMP

By al medina

from modesto, ca

Comments about Ibanez AEL2012ETKS 12-String Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

It's not easy to play any 12 string guitar and takes time to develop strength in the left hand. I really like my new Ibanez (purchased 9/13). I play regular solo gigs and this new guitar adds spice and a new dimension to my sets. I can play hard or delicately, accenting the sweet harmonic overtones which this guitar delivers. Audience has commented on the addition and they like it very much. I can't wait to record some new music using my 12 string either as the main accompaniment to vocals, or writing some instrumental piece for the guitar alone. I highly recommend this unit to all serious players. It sounds good acoustically and fabulous amplified. The onboard electronics are spot-on and allow a diverse array of tones and depths. I am still experimenting with tone. I also play an Ibanez 6 string with onboard electronics and rate this company as a leader in quality instruments and reasonable prices.

Great Instrument

By Roberto Olvera

from Perris, CA

Comments about Ibanez AEL2012ETKS 12-String Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I have played Estilo Sierreno, which is a variation of mexican regional music, that requires a twelve string guitar for 5 years and have never owned an instrument that has so many pros for such a good price. Highly recommended to any Sierreno guitar player. Sounds excellent with both the amp and without one.

Took awhile to get....was it worth the wait?

By Keith Lewchuk

from Central NJ

Comments about Ibanez AEL2012ETKS 12-String Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

This took quite a while to get. First it was on back order then pushed back about a week, then 2 weeks, 3 weeks! I almost gave up. I love this guitar. I've had it just shy of a week and can't stop playing it. The sound is truly angelic. Not like some 12s that are "tinty" or just plain flat. This thing has a soft, sweetness to it...it just sounds right! Songs I gave up trying to play years ago because they seemed to lack something sound absolutely beautiful with this baby. My guitars have to sound just right to me...and this does. I was taking a gamble never having played it and ordering on-line. Gamble???!! I broke the bank with this! This is an great sounding instrument.

Amazing!

By Robert Northrup

from Crest Hill, Illinois

Comments about Ibanez AEL2012ETKS 12-String Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I have been drooling over pictures of this guitar on the web site for about 6 months now. The color of it is beautiful. I've been playing guitar since 1979 and have always bought the practical, boring, works okay I suppose pieces. A couple years ago I decided it was time to buy some that I would want to keep for the rest of whatever. My wife bought me this for Christmas last month and I fell in love. It looks better than the pictures. Photo's really don't do it justice. The sound is beautiful, but then I plugged it into my amp. You REALLY have to hear it through an amplifier. The tone quality is amazing. The neck action is very good for a 12 string and I couldn't be more happy. Not just a guitar... this is a piece of art that I love seeing hanging on my wall with my others. Play it and I garuntee you will fall in love.

needed a guitar while on cruise

By Dick Mohre

from e. sandwich Ma.

Comments about Ibanez AEL2012ETKS 12-String Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

Being a musician I have 8 guitars and while on a recent cruise in the Caribbean I missed my guitars. I picked up a new Ibanez in Puerto Rico and couldnt believe the price and the way it plays!! I am the owner of Takamine"s and Ovation Double neck and this new 12 plays awesome! I cant believe my others cost twice as much! Gold tuning heads look great also. Onboard tuner and electronics are good and the neck action are awesome for a off the rack guitar! Had to buy the case seperate in St. Thomas and the trip home to Cape Cod is now where it plays daily and at gigs! Buy this unit and you cant go wrong!!! The older I get my hands just dont play like they used too, this is heaven to play!!

Best 12 ever

By Gabriel

from Maryland

Comments about Ibanez AEL2012ETKS 12-String Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I got this guitar a few days ago and it has always been with me wherever I go. It is a great guitar for beginners on a 12 and experts. It is completely under-priced so this is definetly a guitar that you should buy when you have the money. It stays in tune and if it goes out by a liitle bit the onboard tuner allows you to easealy retune it. Plus the input jack also come with the plug for a PA system. Its great if you are playing a gig and you didnt bring an amp you just plug int the PA system. Finally the string spacing allows you to some of the hardest pick like dear Prudence but it also lets you get a nice sound while playing things like Take it On the Run. This guitar totally rises to the ocasion whenever needed.

wow

By Dan

from Grapevine, TX

Comments about Ibanez AEL2012ETKS 12-String Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I picked this up today and I havent been able to put it down since. This guitar for this price is a steal. Compared to the other 12 strings in the acoustic room, this had the most even sound. Some of them were really bright with absolutely no low end, while the Martin, while sounding beautiful, had a ton of low end. This guitar has a really nice mixture of high and low, and it sounds really great. One thing i really like about this is the neck. Its action is actually quite nice and easy for a 12 string. The neck is a lot wider than say, the Mitchell 12, but for me and my big hands thats a big plus. Also, since the neck is wider, the pairs of strings are farther apart, making picking individual notes almost as easy as on a regular 6 string. I approve. The electronics on it are really nice. Having a built in tuner, especially on a 12 string! is unbelievably nice. When I plug it into an amp, it sounds like itself, only louder. This may seem elementary, but with my other acoustic i need to use an external soundhole pickup, which really takes all the tone out compared to this. And dont get me started on the looks. I'm usually not a fan of colored acoustics, but the way they did this one was really nice; a deep dark stain on top of flamed maple looks amazing. yeah, this is a good guitar.

By guy mazzone

from Hagerstown, MD

Comments about Ibanez AEL2012ETKS 12-String Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I have read all the reviews and agree 100%. I have an ibanez electric rg and that was a great value as well. I love the deep bright sound out of the box although it did have surface scratch. The on board tuner is great!!! No problem staying in tune. I aam putting the matching case oon my x-mas list. Also great service from guitar center

Gettin' In Tune

By Doug

from Dallas, TX

Comments about Ibanez AEL2012ETKS 12-String Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

Bought this guitar recently as a replacement for a recently sold Epiphone 12 string from the early 70's. I have 4 other Ibanez guitars and love the preamp, onboard tuner and EQ on the 2 acoustic models (both nylon string). The tuner is especially handy for the 12. I play it through a Fender Acoustasonic Jr and it sounds rich, sweet and full with plenty of room to tweak the sound. Stays in tune really well with only minor tuning adjustments needed after being idle for a day or longer. No pick guard on this one so it may be prone to some playing wear over time. I am very happy with my puchase as are my friends who also want to take a turn with it.

Ibanez 12 String Acoustic/ Electric.........Awesome Sound, Love this Guitar!

By Julie

from Seneca, S.C.

Comments about Ibanez AEL2012ETKS 12-String Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

If you have the oppotunity to purchase a 12 string Acoustic/ Electric this is the one, it is just something I will never regret doing for myself............ It has a beautiful rounded sweet tone, clear, but almost heavenly sound. It has a tuner and I love that but also has pick up for playing it Electically which is just amazing to hear. I'd do it again!!
