This guitar is a thing of beauty; the stunning exotic wood finish really adds to the guitar's character. The price is surprisingly low for such a magnificent 12-string - I've played my friend's expensive Taylor twelve string, and really the only difference between the two is that this Ibanez sometimes doesn't resonate sound as well on the higher frets. There's no buzzing, but the notes aren't sustained as long. Other than that, everything is comparable to 12-string acoustics costing up to two-thousand dollars. It's a wonderful guitar to play, plus it doesn't take too big of a bite out of your wallet!

Not so good.

Guitar was on sale. Bought it on line. Looks great, well built. Sounds thin and cheap. My $400 Yamaha sounds much richer, better tone. Have to say it sounded better amplified.

          Worth the price

          Comments about Ibanez EW2012ASENT 12-String Exotic Wood Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

          I picked this up last night and played until my hands were cramping! The look and feel are fantastic for the price. The only thing I would recommend is to get the Ibanez case with this one. Or, bring the guitar to the store and try the fit with all of their cases. I found that the store brand case I ordered, is way too tight.

          Great guitar, glad I bought it

          Comments about Ibanez EW2012ASENT 12-String Exotic Wood Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

          Again, took a chance by buying online without going to a store. No disappointment!! The Guitar is beautiful, sounds great acoustically. The shape is a little weird but the finish is gorgeous. I haven't used it plugged into anything yet but it comes with a tuner built into the guitar which is cool. Along with Chorus and associated volume controls etc. It's a stael at this price. Thanks GC!!

          great guitar

          By Ben

          from Otsego, MI

          Comments about Ibanez EW2012ASENT 12-String Exotic Wood Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

          i looked through a lot of twelve strings and kept coming back to this one. the one thing that held me back was one of the other reviews said it was quiet when plugged it, i must disagree. sure, it needs to be turned up a notch, but nothing that would make me worry at all. it is over all a very very nice guitar, and everyone i've shown it to have loved the design and even more so, loved to sound. so if you are wondering if its worth it, i'm telling you, it is. it has great sounds, it plays very nice up on the higher frets, and the on-board tuner is great and having an XRL output is a very nice bonus.

          My dream guitar

          By Sierra

          from Phoenix Arizona

          Comments about Ibanez EW2012ASENT 12-String Exotic Wood Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

          I've saved up for this guitar for a year. I read some other reviews that said it wasn't very loud.. and it seems like it usually isn't. I plugged it into my amp and I had to make sure it was plugged in. It is pretty quiet, but it has A LOT of sound to it. The funnest part to this guitar is that you can start your strum from different strings, and it sounds really cool, since you would be hitting the higher octave strings. I am worried that the neck on mine will warp over time, being that there is more tension on the neck via the extra strings, but getting the right capo and tuning it down should do the trick. I think I've heard some minor buzzing while trying to hold down the strings, and it is quite the work out, but you get use to it over time.

          Comments about Ibanez EW2012ASENT 12-String Exotic Wood Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

          The product is great but the customer service was not that great. The item was back-ordered but we were not informed for a while and we were not kept up to date on when it was going to ship. When it finally did ship, it was left on our front porch, no signature required. Because of the backorder, it was late for the B-Day.
