The Sound and Visual Aesthetic is Impeccable
Gus Logozar 28.09.2020
The rich tone paired with the beautiful, yet subtle, vine inlay bode for a competent mid-range acoustic guitar. There was no cosmetic deficiencies upon arrival. The instrument champions di-cast tuners with a beautiful rosewood veneer on the face of the headstock. On the body a translucent (very thin) pick guard pasted on the body.

My initial impression of this instrument was that it sated my expectations. One element that I was apprehensive about prior to the purchase was regarding the action. My apprehension was not misplaced as the action was absurdly high off the fretboard, giving the appearance that the manufacturer did not shave the saddle at all. To be precise, the action at the 12th fret on the high e string was slightly less than a quarter inch above the fretboard. Needless to say, this was rather disappointing as I had to spend the next few hours grinding down the saddle until I could lower the action to the perfect height.

The fretwork done on this guitar is rather nice. I have not experienced fret buzz by virtue of unlevel frets (though some buzz from cutting the saddle too low initially).

Regarding the pre-installed pickup, the sound is about what you would expect. Tinny and sensitive, yet rich and balanced. Overall a decent pickup for a guitar of this price, though I much prefer the raw sound of the guitar through a microphone.

Worth the price, though Ibanez skipped out on an integral step. Be wary of this before you buy.

A
Fantastic guitar
AMulv 30.10.2017
First of all I ordered the guitar Friday morning and it was delivered Tuesday, I was very impressed with the delivery. The guitar looks the business. The finish is really good, it has a warm look to it but yet has that lovely high gloss finish. The head stock and fret board designs are really appealing and look like the guitar would cost over 1k. The action is very good and the sound is fantastic. It sounds really good plugged into a good amp. Overall it is a fantastic guitar and I would definitely recommend it.

Beautiful and Elegant Acoustic
p1n3app7es 23.11.2019
I purchased this guitar nearly a year ago so I have had plenty of time to play it which will reflect in this review.
This for sure one of the nicest acoustics I have played, it gives comfort, an amazing tone and looks spectacular. The build quality is superb and the colour of the wood is very eye catching, even better than the photos.
However, it does lose marks for not coming with a case like its juniour version does (AE205JR-OPN) and also for lack of controlls for the electronics, for example the AW70ECE-NT which is considerably less expensive comes with a built in tuner and also has bass, treble and volume controlls. But, that been said the woods used in this guitar are superior to the woods used in the other guitars I have mentioned, I own all 3 and this one has a much warmer tone, is much louder and full bodied, carries more depth and clairity and is overall the nicer guitar to play. 9/10 - I would recommend buying this and have zero regrets with my purchase nearly 1 years later :)

Great sound
sonmez 21.04.2020
The guitar has a great full sound (installed Elixir phosphor bronze - custom light strings), more of a single line guitar than strumming. Sustain is also very good, I must say I am surprised how good this guitar sounds for this price.

My only complaint is that the action is a bit too high, and also the frets. I will have them adjusted to my taste and then I believe I will keep this guitar for a long time. Definitely one of the best value for this price.
