Ibanez V70CE Acoustic Electric Guitar

Gearank Recommendation

The V70CE appeared on our recommended list for Acoustic-Electric Guitars Under $200 from June 2018 until March 2020.


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.

Given its low 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.
