        Comments about Ibanez AEL20E Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        I have been playing for 5 years now and this is my first acoustic (I usually play electric). I played Fenders, Ovations, Gibson, the lot but kept coming back to this one. Not only is the finish stunning, but the sound is unbeatable. It's loud and rarely needs to be plugged in. Good for jamming and doing little home recordings. I love everything about this guitar. It's big body style feels good and the built in tuner is a nice feature and has yet to fail me. This guitar is beautiful in every aspect.

              Comments about Ibanez AEL20E Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

              Well I went in to buy MY first elctric acoustic and I've only played on Takamine and Ovation acoustic guitars besides basic classical guitar. Right once I went into the store I saw this guitar and tried it and almost melted just from the feel and the sound (I play punk, ska, emo, reggae etc.) that allowed me to play many genres of music. Went around for about an hour trying each acoustic ranging from $200-750 and I couldn't find a guitar that felt any better than this one. It's jumbo body produces a deep rich sound, the neck feels so similar to an electric guitars, the body is beautiful, and the built in EQ & tuner just made it all 10 times better.

                  I bought this guitar for my birthday...as my 2nd guitar... i wanted something with a rich sound and big body and a built in tuner. Well I played about 15 guitars until I found this one. I was totally inspired to play more and couldnt wait to get home and play it. The tuner is so accurate! Im impressed! and the price for this beautiful guitar was so worth it.

                    I just purchased this guitar. I played several in the $300-$800 range and found this to be by far the best sounding. It has a rich round tone, is VERY easy to play, and the electronics are fabulous. I recommend this to anyone in the intermediate level, particularly if you're performing.
