The AEG1812II from Ibanez is a full-size 12-string acoustic/electric guitar made from a combination of spruce and mahogany in a dark violin sunburst high-gloss finish. The guitar's large, single-cutaway body delivers a powerful, expansive, and balanced acoustic sound. Unplugged or amplified, the instrument is well suited for solo performance or playing with a full band.
The AEG1812II features a spruce top, mahogany back and sides, and a mahogany neck with a 21-fret rosewood fingerboard and chrome die-cast tuners. The instrument has ivory neck and body binding, an abalone soundhole rosette, and an attractive high-gloss finish, while the back of the neck has a smooth, satin finish for added comfort while playing.
For electronics, the guitar is equipped with a Fishman Sonicore pickup and Ibanez AEQ-SP2 preamp, which includes controls for volume, treble, and bass, along with an onboard tuner. The AEG1812II comes set up with D'Addario EXP36 Coated 80/20 Bronze, light-gauge (.010-.047) strings for 12-string guitar.
