Great construction, feel, and sound

By RICHARD PERRY

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.

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 sound for less cost

By CHARLES PATTERSON

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.

Great Guitar

By Phil Akre

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.

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

use guitar for rhythm and lead; good action, well made, great finish; pairs of strings may be a little to close together, or maybe its just my fat fingers, any way i love it.

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

Excellent value and instrument
Showed up in perfect condition although there were two broken strings. Didn't matter, I had a set of D'Addario 10/46's ready to go for it.
I would recommend this guitar to anyone. Beautifully bound neck and body. Set up perfect; Great action.
Thanks Guitar Center!

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

    I am on the road and only have a plug in earphone amp, so it is a bit premature to rate the electronics, tone, etc., I won't be home to amplification and playing with a band for a while. I can only speak of the playability and the sound I get and that is great. Easy to play, fits well on the hip, good on the hand, light weight, looks good with pearl fret inlays. Strung like most 12 strings not named Rickenbacker. Would like to string it with heavier string first, but would require a new nut. Seems to catch the mood of the songs I have played with it. Older Beatles, like "Hard Days Night" and every Tom Petty song I tried and a few Byrds I know, really capture the feeling unlike a 6 string. I play other classic rock tunes and it sounds good, but it shines on the 12 string tunes. Although it stays in tune pretty well for being banged on acoustically at this point, it really needs to be tuned nearly spot on to sound good. As always with 12 strings, be careful tuning making sure you have the right string when adjusting, it doesn't take much to overtighten to breakage. If it doesn't turn me on, it usually ends up being a string or two has slipped a little flat. Haven tried any alternate tunings at this point, but capo works well. No problems with fit and finish, and it was set up pretty well as delivered. Very happy proud owner.
