Ibanez PF15ECE

This is a traditionally styled acoustic-electric with a spruce top and mahogany body combined with Fishman electronics with a built-in tuner.

The dreadnought shape provides good projection (it sounds loud) and the cutaway provides easy access to the high frets.

Pros

Positive customer reviews came from both beginners and experienced guitarists with the dominant theme being 'great guitar for the money' and the Fishman electronics were also cited many times.

Cons

There were no consistently reported negatives in customer reviews other than a small number of people who mentioned the action was a bit higher than they expected.

Overall

If you're looking for a student acoustic-electric, or something to use as a practice guitar, then the PF15ECE is a good option.
