A Bold All-maple 12-string Built for the Stage!

Play loud and proud with an Ibanez AEL2012ETKS 12-string acoustic-electric guitar. Showing off a stunning flame maple top on a maple back, and sides, the AEL2012ETKS doesn't just look impressive, it sounds amazing. We're talking about bright, present, and loud - the three things that define the sound of maple. And when it's time to plug in, you'll be blown away by the sound of the AEL2012ETKS's onboard Fishman pickup and Ibanez SST Shape Shifter preamp system. And with it's full-sized AEL body the Ibanez AEL2012ETKS is loud enough to cut through even full ensembles.

Ibanez AEL2012ETKS Acoustic-electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • All maple body provides sparkling highs and bold projection
  • AEL body style provides full-bodied sound and powerful projection
  • Onboard SST Shape Shifter electronics let you dial in perfect live sound
All maple body provides sparkling highs and bold projection

If you're looking for an acoustic guitar that can cut through even the densest stage mixes with ease, then the Ibanez AEL2012ETKS is a great choice for you. By far considered to be among the brightest of the common tonewoods, the combination of a maple top, back, and sides gives the AEL2012ETKS a voice that sparkles and shines, yet leaves space for other instruments to breathe when you play with a full band. It's a great, bold sound that you can use no matter what style of music or playing technique you prefer.

AEL body style provides full-bodied sound and powerful projection

When it comes to full and natural projection, you can trust the AEL2012ETKS's full-sized AEL body-style to deliver the sound you demand. Larger in the lower bout than most of Ibanez's acoustic-electric guitars, yet slender enough not to overwhelm smaller guitarists, the AEL2012ETKS's AEL body shape gives you both an excellent balance of feel, projection, depth, and sparkle. It's just what you want when you're playing a 12-string guitar with a full band.

Onboard SST Shape Shifter electronics let you dial in perfect live sound

Here's another reason that the Ibanez AEL2012ETKS is such an great acoustic guitar for playing live - its killer SST Shape Shifter electronics system. The SST Shape Shifter active preamp and pickup system gives you both an 3-band EQ and a shape control, which make it easy to get great sound in virtually any venue. You also get balanced XLR output in addition to the standard 1/4" jack - just what you need to run direct to the board. Add to that an onboard tuner (so you can't leave home without one), and the electronics system onboard the AEL2012ETKS acoustic guitar gives you real bang for the buck!
