Comments about Ibanez Artcore AS7312 12-String Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar:

I wanted a 12-string sound for band use. I thought I'd fake it with a MicroPOG, but a 12-string can't really be faked. I tried an acoustic-electric 12 but didn't like the big chunky neck. And I couldn't afford a Rickenbacker, so it was Ibanez Artcore to the rescue!

Pros: It's not neck-divy, it's very lightweight, and it feels like quality. Tuning machines work well, pots have decent rolloff, binding looks good all around. Pickups sound decent & balanced. All reasonable quality is what I'm saying.

Cons: the nut width appears to be exactly as wide as my (6-string) SG Pro, so there's not a lot of room for fingering end chords. Bridge doesn't have separate adjusters for the secondary strings.

Conclusion: there's not a lot of variables with 12's, so no wasted extras here. The skinny neck will take some getting used to, but I'm getting the riffs I wanted. The six-saddle bridge isn't such a big concern to me (12-strings can't be perfectly tuned anyway), but there is one available for $150 via online parts sellers.

Of course, I just got it today so maybe I'll change my mind later, but at this point it does just what I wanted: t sounds like a 12. plays decent & isn't a log. I will have to switch it to lefty because Artcore doesn't make a lefty 12, but I'm convinced it's worth the effort. Rondo's custom shop would cost twice as much & required a five month wait, so thank you GC & Artcore

Great construction, feel, and sound

By 

from Rochester, NY

Comments about Ibanez Artcore AS7312 12-String Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar:

Just received this guitar, after it having been on back order for a month. Great appearance, sound, and fingerboard response. I had owned a Rickenbacker 360-12 back in the 60's and this is my first electric 12 since then. The AS7312 provides some striking similarities to the Rick 360-12 in achievable response/tones. The sole reason that I am rating this a "4" is that Ibanez has not one hard shell case included its offerings that can accommodate this guitar.

Great Guitar

By 

from New Jersey

Comments about Ibanez Artcore AS7312 12-String Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar:

I was recently given this guitar for Christmas. I must say it is beautiful right out of the box. I got the Vintage Burst finish and it is stunning. This guitar is built very well. When plugged in, you can get 3 different tones. One tone being that snappy, twangy jangle of George Harrison. Or a more fuller, round sound of something like The Byrds or some Rush tunes. You're gonna have to do some adjusting on your amp to really get that true 12-String tone. This guitar is good for someone who is looking for a cheaper alternative to a hollow-body 12 string. Obviously a brand like Gretsch and Rickenbacker is better but that also means much more $$$. All in all, this is an amazing 12 string that offers that vintage 12-string tone at an affordable price.

Great sound for less cost

By 

from Lake Worth, Florida

Comments about Ibanez Artcore AS7312 12-String Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar:

I always wanted a 12 string to get the "jangle" of Beatles, Byrds and Tom Petty. I just never had the money to get the guitars they used. This Ibanez gives you that sound for 1/4 the price. Great feel, great craftsmanship. I haven't put it down since I got it.
