The Ibanez AEW4012AS-NT electro acoustic guitar in natural high gloss is a 12-string that combines power with grace with stunning results. The beautiful figured ash creates a luxurious finish that is matched by the flexibility and rich tonality of this model. Whether you're a beginner who is looking for a comfortable model to start their musical journey on, a touring pro who is looking for a reliable partner, or a session player who is looking for a 12-string that offers something unique, then you won't be disappointed.
Powerful Dreadnought Body Shape
The Ibanez AEW4012AS-NT body adheres to that of a dreadnought shape, with a deep single-cutaway for a comfortable playing feel, as well as a striking design feature. The body is constructed completely from figured ash, a solid tonewood that yields a generous midrange clout with gentle rounded low and high ranges. The tough and resilient nature of ash make it a great wood for touring musicians, and the high gloss finish offers the guitar superb protection against changes in temperature and humidity. The body benefits from multi-wooden binding, which creates a seamless connection between the top and side woods. A maple rosette provides a neat finish to the soundhole.
Fitted to the body is a sturdy mahogany neck, which is shaped to a rounded profile for comfort. Paired with the neck is a gorgeous rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 20-frets that are adorned with maple position inlays that provide a cool navigational aid. Though this may be a 12-string model, Ibanez has gone to great lengths to ensure that the neck and fingerboard pairing remains slender enough to accommodate even the smallest of hands, without the fingerboard feeling crowded or cumbersome.
Fishman Sonicore Pickup
As noted above, those who're looking for a model to hit the stage and studio with are spoilt for choice when it comes to recording outputs, or connecting to a PA system, the AEW4012AS comes equipped with a Fishman Sonicore pickup, as well as the awesome Ibanez AEQ-SP2 preamp. The electronics setup translates the timbre of the guitar's tonewoods beautifully. You can rest assured that whether you play acoustically or plugged-in, you can expect to hear the same sublime tone. If that wasn't enough, the onboard electronics system is equipped with a built-in tuner, so staying in tune needn't ever be a problem.
The AEW4012AS is equipped with both a balanced XLR output and 1/4" jack outputs, so whatever situation you find yourself in the studio or at a gig, Ibanez have got you covered. Not only does this addition give you the ability to hook up to an amplifier or PA system, it also offers sound and tone controls that are directly accessible from the upper bout of the guitar.
If you're looking for an exceptional 12-string electro acoustic guitar that accommodates beginners who're quite literally getting to grips with their first model then the Ibanez AEW4012AS-NT Electro Acoustic Guitar is perfect.
