I played a lot of acoustic guitars in this price range before I settled on the AEL20. It wasn't even close once I picked this one up. It sounds great, plays great, and is pretty tough. I don't know how many times I've banged it against something, and still no dings in the guitar. I haven't had a good chance to test the electronics on it, aside from the built in tuner, which is extremely convenient. Try it before you buy it, but you're going to like it.

Don't buy this guitar! I ordered this guitar based on the very generous reviews people had written. It seemed like a great find and it was so pretty! I had always wanted a blue guitar. Yes, contrary to what others have written, do let the fact it was made in China influence you.. Maybe some of these are okay, but not what arrived via ups to my door. It sounds so cheap! Feels even cheaper and is heavy. I could not get rid of the horrific buzz in the strings, and could not keep the guitar tuned. It is pretty to look at, but as Forrest Gump says, "pretty is as pretty does.". Do yourself a favor and buy the Fender T Bucket 300 cutaway. Less money and infinitely better, great action, no buzz and remarkable sound. I haven't been able to put this guitar down. And when I plugged it into mys little 15 amp frontman amp, the sound was unbelievable. Buy the Fender, you will thank me.

Great sound - Great price !

By Maria

from Oakhurst New Jersey

Comments about Ibanez AEL20ENT Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I was looking for a warm, full sound, wihtout a tinny ring. I got what I wanted from this guitar. I've owned an Ibanez acoustic for ten years and I love the sound I get from that guitar. So when I needed an acoustic electric to sing and lead music in church worship services, I figured I would get another Ibanez. I'm glad I did. This guitar sounds beautiful. I really love the on board tuning and equalizer - I can enhance the sound quality between songs if necessary. The red sunburst is even prettier in person than it looks in the picture!

Beautiful look, Beautiful Sound

By SavedByGrace316

from New York

Comments about Ibanez AEL20ENT Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

This was my first real investment in a guitar, and I can't complain one bit. Very convienent that it has a tuner but that just the start, beautiful visuals on the guitar itself and a nice deep crisp sound on it. A great investment that Im not dissapointed in.

Solid Value

By adelaarvaren

from Seattle, WA

Comments about Ibanez AEL20ENT Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

Well, it's a $350 Acoustic, so there is no use comparing it to the the high end guitars. However, it is leaps and bounds above the cheap guitars out there. I bought it a couple of months ago, and am quite happy. It is quick, and suprisingly loud when played acoustic (being that it has the slender body - its not a dreadnought). I honestly believe it is a great value for the money, with good electronics and a warm tone.

Ibanez AEL20E

By JPH74

from Weirton, WV

Comments about Ibanez AEL20ENT Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

This is a great guitar at a great price. I play it directly through a Yamaha PA system. I do a solo acoustic act in local bars and I really like the way this Ibanez sounds. I am a long time fan and user of Ibanez guitars. The onboard tuner is a fine plus.

Love It

By Garrett White

from West Branch, MI

Comments about Ibanez AEL20ENT Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I have been playing guitar for about 4 years now on my dads old Ibanez acoustic. So for 18th birthday my dad took me to Guitar Center to get my own. I played quite a few before picking this guitar up and after playing just a few chords i imediatly fell in love with the sound quality and action. The onboard tuner and equalizer help produce a beautiful acoustic sound even when hooked up to an amp. Definitly a great pick!

AMAZING!!!

By Flechanata

from van. wa

Comments about Ibanez AEL20ENT Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I got this guitar on my b day I saved up for WEEKS but this guitar is soooo worth it. The sound on it blew my away I thought that once you plugged it in it would not sould as good but dont worry it sounds the same if not better.... another thing I love about this guitar is that it stays in tune FOREVER I dont use the onboard tuner that much because I like using my Korg tuner but if im on the run its perfect.Once i picked up this guitar and played wish you here by pink floyd, i just knew i had to get it. But lets cut the story short, great for gigs best price for this type of guitar and you will love it. Now dont wait click the add to cart button i promise you wont regret it.

By Brent

from Novi, mi

Comments about Ibanez AEL20ENT Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I picked up this guitar in the Blue about a week ago.. it sounds great and the onboard tuner works really well. I have always had trouble w/ tuning and this is a piece of cake. The guitar looks awesome, sounds great and is playing well. I would buy it again in the same situation. Also, Eric @ the Canton, MI shop was real nice and very helpful.

Very nice

By Rick D.

from Bradenton, Fl.

Comments about Ibanez AEL20ENT Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I had recently decided to sell my Ibanez AEG 10E and see how the next level or so of the Ibanez acoustic/electrics were. I loved the AEG10E, but let me tell you......This one is incredible!!!! The AEL20 was out of the box really nice, action good, neck straight, electronics very good. The finish is beautiful, real good job, most of all the sound was incredible. The AEG10 was a bit of a thinline while this is about as deep as a regular dreadnaught. This thing sounds great, plugged in or not. Very impressed overall great guitar for not so much money. Thumbs up from me !!

Awesome!

By Jake M.

from Baldwin, WI

Comments about Ibanez AEL20ENT Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

This was my first "big" guitar purchase after playing on rather cheap guitars for a few years. I tried out just about every guitar in the showroom before I decided on this one. It's looks (mine has the blue finish) caught my eyes first. Once I started playing it, I found it had a tone to match it's looks. I've been playing around plugging it into my DigiTech RP355 pedal and have to say the effects sound great with it.

Great Ibanez

By mhrobinson87

from Moss Point, MS

Comments about Ibanez AEL20ENT Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I bought this guitar last week after reading all the reviews on this site. I am very impressed with its build quality, overall look of the, the way it plays and sounds. The first time I played this guitar, I thought it was O.K. The second time I played it I thought it was excellent. The on-board tuner is not overly broad, but rather very precise once you get used to using it. I changed the strings right off the bat, and after tuning, it up was rocking out in no time. I have the red sunburst and it is beautiful. I did not expect it to be so good looking. I like this guitar because it has the look of a rocker (as well as the sound) but, also is perfect for playing softer tunes.

Excellent Acoustic-Electric

By Noel Baby

from Roosevelt, Utah

Comments about Ibanez AEL20ENT Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I bought this last month and the guitar sounds very good. I got the blue burst and it's beautiful. It has brilliant tones and deep bass. The Ibanez pre-amp with phase and the on board tuner made this guitar stand out. It's cheap and it does the job well. Also the guys at guitar center were very helpful. Keep up the good work guys.
