"This guitar is awesome!!!"
This reviewer purchased this item from Same Day Music.
Sound unplugged is bright, clear and vibrant, not a lot of bass when unplugged but more than I'd expect from a 3 1/8" deep belly. The sound is awesome through the pickups, and the EQ makes tone adjustment fast and easy.
The spruce, mahogany and rosewood parts are beautiful and sound great. The main difference between this and the AEG10 is the built-in tuner, a very useful feature. This model also offers dual output jacks, 1/4" and XLR. The long-lasting, great sounding D'addario EXP light gauge strings come standard. It would be nice if this guitar came with a strap or other accessories.
The finish is a bit rough in some spots, and there are saw marks in the fretboard, but the finish itself is attractive and durable (there's no need for a pickguard) and the vintage sunburst paintjob looks awesome.
Very few repair centers near me are authorized by Ibanez.
This is a great guitar for the money, and it'll last.
The Wow Factor:
This is one sexy guitar! I would hang it on my wall as a piece of art. The ladies like it and I catch people giving those jealous stares...
The sound is amazing, it's attractive and ergonomic, and I plan to keep this guitar for the rest of my life. I would recommend this to anyone who wants a great-sounding, easy to use guitar for a very reasonable price
