Ibanez is well known for providing good quality instruments in every price point, from those used by virtuosos like Joe Satriani and Steve Vai, to affordable acoustics meant for the average joe.

The V70CE is part of their extended line up of instruments, a standard dreadnought acoustic electric guitar with Ibanez' quality control reputation backing it up.

It features a spruce top, mahogany back and sides, mahogany neck and built-in electronics with basic EQ.

Many users point to the Ibanez V70CE's good sound and playability as the main reason they are happy with the instrument. Some users describe its acoustic tone as being full sounding with good low end, while others appreciate its clarity. Plugged in sound also gets a lot of thumbs up from users who are happy with how balanced and natural it sounds.


There are a few complaints from experienced users who compare its quality to more expensive guitars, specifically mentioning fret buzz issues, and minor aesthetic flaws.


Still, given its price tag, good market reputation and big brand backing, the Ibanez V70CE is a great buy for those who are starting out if one can be found now that it's been discontinued.
