Ibanez AEG10II Acoustic-Electric Guitar

This guitar is no longer available new from stores but you can find alternatives in our guide to The Best Acoustic Electric Guitars.

The Ibanez AEG10II is a thin-bodied acoustic-electric guitar, designed with a focus on live performance as opposed to amateur recording or practice.

The AEG10II combines laminated spruce top with mahogany back and sides, and packs both in a thin profile body. Thin bodied guitars, while more resistant to feedback than their larger counterparts, don’t have the breadth of tone or the volume of a full sized acoustic guitar. The cool thing about this guitar is that, it’s one of the cheapest ways for beginning musicians to get a solid gigging instrument.

When you’re just starting out you generally play in less than ideal conditions and your soundman, if one is present at all, isn’t going to be as well versed in his/her craft as someone who works in larger venues. Because the guitar is resistant to feedback and gives you the option to sculpt your tone without having to rely on a console, it will prove to be a valuable asset.

Pros

Good looks and playability seem to be the two biggest selling points of the Ibanez AEG10II. Many describe it as a fun instrument, thanks to its comfortably thin profile body and fast action setup. A good portion of its positive reviews are from users who after gigging with the guitar, have great things to say about its reliability and amplified sound.

Cons

There are a few who complain about its thin profile body and the resulting limited acoustic projection. There are also some who had to make action adjustments before they enjoyed the guitar.

Overall

With its thin profile body and Ibanez brand of playability, the Ibanez AEG10II is truly a fun instrument that you can take with you on stage.
