Today we're going to review an interesting budget acoustic guitar, produced by Ibanez: the V72CE.
These are the cheapest acoustic guitars in the Ibanez catalog, and are single-cutaway dreadnought guitars.
Dreadnought guitars takes the name from a large english battleship, and this name stands for instruments with a larger body than most of its contemporary guitars, and with a deeper, louder tone.
These guitars feature an interesting in-built preamp and tuner, called AEQ200T.
The preamplifier has three faders: Bass, Treble and Volume, and obviously an output jack, good to go on a guitar amp or straight to the P.A.
The direct output of this guitar was used to record the sample that can be listened on our article about How to Record and Mix an Acoustic guitar.
