UTILIZATION

This is a neat acoustic guitar from Ibanez. As far as playability is concerned, this guitar benefits from having a narrower body depth than most standard acoustics. This makes the guitar more comfortable to hold. The neck has a good feel to it - chord work was easy, as well as single note soloing. The string spacing at the bridge is excellent for fingerstyle playing.

Cosmetically, the Padauk top is quite unusual to look at, but is very attractive. However, the inlay at the 12th fret is pretty cheesy.

SOUNDS

This guitar sounds good enough for stage use, and just practicing around the house or songwriting. For the recording studio, I'd be inclined to play something with a bit more low-end depth, as the bass end of this axe is a bit shallow. But the crispness is definitely there, and the included SRTn and B-Band UST pickup system gives the EWC30 a flexible package capable of tailoring to the room, as well as eliminating feedback coming from the PA or monitoring system.

OVERALL OPINION

Overall, this is a good guitar. It has a better playability and look than it does tone, but that is the type of trade-off that is made when shallowing the body depth and cutting out a dramatically shaped cutaway. The wood selection is very nice, and the fit and finish is right on for this price range. My one minor gripe is that Ibanez put a really cheesy inlay at the 12th fret - why don't guitar manufacturers leave lower-end guitars alone? I've seen so many that are very nice, but then the look is all off when someone is feeling "creative" in the inlay department. I realize it might be a way to brand the instrument a bit further, but I really think Ibanez could have done away with the inlay all together to make the guitar look much classier.

nico37000's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Ibanez EWC30PDE
Made in China saw the price
Padua guitar (not solid)
Aspect flattering, Satin finish
22 cargo, the handle is quite short
In terms of electronics, it's pretty good with a dual-band, 1 volume, equalizer (high, medium, severe) and a built-in tuner
Fund shallow

UTILIZATION

The neck is thin enough
Access to acute is quite complicated but it is not made for that
Guitar well balanced, fairly light
on the other hand, it comes with strings super hard, so you will hurt finger
His little loose dry enough, it's a bit of a guitar that no neighbors n'embète

on the other hand once connected, it was the real rock sound and a real possibility of setting

SOUNDS

For me (inexperienced) it was hard enough to play at the beginning (hardness of string!)
But once abitué is a fun Rhythmic.
I use it with an old amp Peavy audition 110 (HP replaced with a Celestion Vintage G10) and can play a lot of style, jack white, acdc, scorpion, ...

Tone issue I would say 7 / 10 and 9 / 10 connected

Experiment ... it is faulty ... the 3rd and 4th strings sound very oddly, I reported to the shop and I bought it, he told me they had this problem with this model, the battery holder or qqchose like that which vibrates ..
They have me as they could recall, but it happened again not long after.

So, I played it more, it is out of warranty, I would sell it but who wants a guitar that makes noise "digiridou".

OVERALL OPINION

I recently (about 3 months), I will see to the use
I mainly bought for its looks and price
With a budjet of € 330, given my small frame, I had the choice between apx 300 yamaha home and it, having tried both I prefer the latter
Experience will tell me if I made the right choice, but for the moment by the strings I'm satisfied ....

Oliverbass's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Ibanez EWC30PDE
Body: Padauk
Neck: Mahogany
Micro: B-Band ® UST ™ Pickup
Preamp: Ibanez SRTn Preamp (5 settings: bass / middle / treble / notch / volume + 1 switch 'phase')
Tuners: Chrome Ibanez Smooth Tuner AS -> absolutely crappy
Nut & tailpiece: Ibanez Ivorex II
Rosette: Abalone
Fingerboard: Rosewood
Outputs: Jack and XLR!
Tuner
Housing batteries (2xAA 1.5V): trap easily accessible next to the XLR jacks &

Made in China.

By adding the reference I put a picture big enough for us to realize how beautiful this guitar is: very little varnish, wood bindings are different color (not plastic as in many cases) is the most beautiful effect.

UTILIZATION

It's a small guitar, the lower body is only 10 cm. wide and there are only 21 boxes.
The cutaway is dug, but it is only cosmetic: it does not have access to more acute than other electro-acoustic.

Because of its small size it is very enjoyable to play and the handle is very comfortable.

A damper on the race: there are no marks on the key boxes (presumably so as not to stain with the abalone inlay) but on its edge, for they are against black and tiny so if you n is not in full light it is of interest to know by heart the handle ...

When you play standing with a strap body tends to tilt slightly forward or when I have a big belly too? (Possible too ...)

A very good point for the tuner and battery provisions very accessible.

additional information after 2 years of use
there is a very big flaw that has only increased over time: the mechanics are very bad when it turns a little bit nothing happens when running a lot, it is immediately too away. It's frustrating quickly.
This defect is not on my copy, I had confirmation that other users have the same problem.

I ended up changing the mechanical (I put Kluson € 25) and it works very well

SOUNDS

Acoustic sound is more powerful than what we expected given the small Taile but much less extensive than a dreadnought, for example.
This is not necessarily a fault because as the low end is not 'bloated' the overall impression is well defined.

In power it is even more beautiful, my previous electro-acoustic was certainly pathetic but now I'm amazed by the effectiveness of preamp settings (except perhaps the Notch)
There is also a button 'phase' which I have not grasped the utility is probably the device for reducing feedback.

The difference in level between the output jack and the XLR output is enormous. I have not had the advice of a sound engineer but my little mixer, XLR clipped it a little faster.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 2 months and I am very satisfied.

It has everything to please me: the unusual look very successful, very good gameplay, an expanded sonic palette.

My impression is mixed on the finish, given our usual prejudices about the 'Made in China' is a pleasant surprise but I think that with a look and level of equipment similar to a retail price of € 350 it may be hiding something ... also the first day I heard a strange resonance uncomfortable, as if a piece of metal vibrating in the box but it was quickly stopped, I put it on the account a period of adaptation to a stable thermal environment.

True most are built-in tuner and battery compartment door is easily accessible.

It is a favorite purchase: a friend bought this guitar and when I saw her and tried (well, the guitar ...) I said 'I want the same'!

I know it's bastard do that to a girl <img border="0" alt="" />
I put 8 in the overall score because all being very happy (especially the price / quality ratio) I am aware that having never tried to scratch really high-end, my enthusiasm is certainly tempered ...

Edit: due to the fact that the mechanical origin are appalling and it seems to me imperative to replace them I see the overall score down to 2 points
It's a shame to have to change his guitar so that it is simply used

Razorblade's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Ibanez EWC30PDE
Made in China
22 frets
Mic "by B-Band"
settings treble, mid and low
tuner (great that!)

UTILIZATION

The handle end is nice
Access to the acute after the 15 box is rather complicated, but it's a rhythm guitar ...

Very good ergonomics, if one does not solo.

The sound is actually very good, do not read the opinion below. Its vacuum very warm, lots of natural harmonics.

Once connected, the sound is excellent. I play straight into the studio to the console.
You can hear the result here: http://www.razorimages.fr/guitar/Noche-estrellada.mp3

SOUNDS

To play rhythm and do a few solos, so it is perfect.
To play live, I prefer a guitar that has more trunk, more "open" in sound, but it's a great guitar for the price.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 1 month.

The best is its price (300 € at the Dealer Sons in Lyon) and his exotic look.
