Affordable 12-string with a Fishman Pickup
The Ibanez Artwood AEG1812II’s exciting 12-string sound can help breathe new life into your playing. Wide-spaced string pairs make this guitar natural to play for any acoustic player, and its tones will spark new creative ideas and help to flesh out existing arrangements every time you pick it up. Classic tonewoods with an onboard Fishman pickup give the Artwood a warm sound with a reliable direct tone for the stage and studio. And a satin wood bridge, ivory body binding, and an abalone soundhole rosette give this guitar a look that your audience is sure to appreciate.
Exciting live and recorded tones
The interaction between octave and unison strings gives the Ibanez AEG1812II an exciting sound that can help your parts stand out in a large arrangement. The classic 12-string jangle is a sound that every guitarist needs to have waiting in their arsenal. If you perform live and want to add some “Hotel California” drama to your leads and fingerpicked parts, the Ibanez AEG1812II is a great option.
Classic Ibanez tonewoods for a familiar response
The Artwood AEG1812II’s spruce top has good projection and articulation for live use, and the sapele back and sides emanate their warm sound for an enjoyable listening experience — for both the performer and the audience. Premium appointments not common to this price range include a visually striking abalone soundhole rosette and ivory body binding. Although the sound of the guitar’s 12 strings is unique enough to inspire new compositions, the guitar’s tone remains wonderfully familiar.
Natural-sounding Fishman electronics
A Fishman Sonicore pickup, with independent treble and bass controls, gives this Artwood 12-string a natural direct tone for live shows and recording applications. Soundchecking with the Artwood is a breeze: dual balanced outputs (XLR and 1/4″) provide low-noise connections between your guitar and a DI box, an acoustic amp, or straight into the PA. And staying in tune between songs — crucial to the 12-string sound — is discreet and easy, thanks to an onboard LED chromatic tuner.
