Ibanez AEB5E-LVS No. 5

I made this baritone guitar out of a brand new Ibanez AEB5E-LVS that I got at a great price. Even though this is a brand new guitar, there is one small finish imperfection on the back about the size of the head of a pin that is not immediately noticeable.This model of guitar and the other similar Ibanez guitars I have sold are favorites with the people who have bought them. This is a beautiful guitar with a nice low action and a very easy to play 32 inch scale. It plays well tuned either A – A or B – B with normal guitar strings for finger style but plays best tuned B – B if you are a heavy strummer. I have finished it with a sound port and chrome hardware. It sounds every bit as good as it looks and is bound to attract plenty of attention. I gave this one to my dad.

  1. Terry,

    I didn't see anywhere else to post a general comment. So if you find this, feel free to edit it and publish in the right place to get noticed.

    I'm not much of a guitarist or musician. I have played with a couple gospel praise teams but have not played at all for a couple years.
    This Ibanez has caused me to get my callouses back and playing with a group again. The most common comment from my buddies is "OMG what an incredible instrument!" And it is fun to play.
    I must say first class work, Terry, even if I do happen to be your father.
