Audiofanzine FR's review

Ibanez TCY10E
(Originally written by chamalo31/translated from Audiofanzine FR)

Fir tree top

Mahogany back, sides and neck

Rosewood fingerboard and bridge

Piezo pickup

AEQ201 preamp

Ivorex II neck and bridge nuts

Advantage string pins

Chrome Smooth Tuner AS machine heads


Made in China (the model made in France is six times more expensive)

Very nice finish considering the price


I bought this guitar as my main instrument and for mobile applications (very light, compact, nice-looking... I like it ^^)

Good playability and easy access to the upper frets.

You'll only have to change the strings because the original strings are really bad.

Even if it is a Chinese guitar it provides Ibanez quality.

I didn't have a lot of money so I chose this IBANEZ because it's an electro-acoustic model, because it had a nice price (I tested a cheaper model but with a low-quality preamp and without a tuner) and because of its great looks.


- I own a big folk guitar so the lack of lows of the acoustic sound disappointed me.

- I play with a Jim Harley electric guitar amp but I also plan to use this guitar with my hi-fi system.

- When plugged the sound is ok considering the price.


I still have my folk Valley Blues guitar (French brand).

- I also own a Jim Harley electric guitar (for sale)

- I own a bass guitar

- And I also have a classical guitar in ukulele size.

I received the guitar this morning. I've already played it four hours and I like it... I recommend it to people like me who are not beginners anymore (I've been playing for one year).

This guitar combines a nice price, manufacturing quality, great looks, playability and lightness.

Ibanez TCY10E
Me: Fred, 30 years of guitar. Countless guitars tried and I have not finished coming here to say what I think.

Manufactured in: We get crazy!

Handle: A fretboard really thick. It's boring, hard to play ... maybe a satisfactory adjustment ...

A micro hybrid ... ??? What is this thing? They are calibrated to damage guitars like that ... the povre!

What are the settings? Then you can adjust the tension of the strings with the keys located at the end of the handle. We can also adjust the volume and then also the bass and treble, but, honestly, all kidding zero, find a good and correct equalize everything.


Is nice round: No!

Ergonomics is it good? Do not let the guitar to drink his beer failing to find the handle on the floor! Prefer to take a straw barn! No ... but they tried their piece of wood? Tip: Run in the box three kilograms of cement mason. This is the only way to prevent it from turning in the letting.

Is Access to acute right? It's really important? So, no, as usual, it's not so easy to play further than the fourteenth. They were a cut and paste a guitar that already sounds not at all. Anything!

Gets it easy to sound good? Well, she mimics fairly well the old wheel or creaking door. When I tried this crap, I wondered why they had put a sounding board. Can not make it sound like an acoustic guitar. So I tried it on a amplifiers. A small fender ... I saw tears running the speaker. Povre amps!


What are the settings that obtained? that, to be crystalline !!! You can remove the lower strings, they are useless. We get a sound never heard before. Looks like the notes remain trapped inside.

I also tried with shectler. Nothing! For electric guitarists, go your way and go buy a Squier ... it's much better. For acoustic guitarists, give there to a guy you do not like. For people who are new, it's really the guitar not to buy. No sound, hard, sickening. In addition, it is a feedback box!


How long I have: No but it will not! I have not bought this crap. I tried ... 5 minutes! And again, I lost my time. It's a shame to sell such stuff.

It did absolutely nothing. Perhaps for the SKA, punk ... and after burning for a good stage effect!

Finally, we can find it beautiful. But really, the first who told me it sounds, I eat with him and I think the handle. It's still there it will go better. A crappy guitar, an infamous pot!

For the rest, sorry, I do not know enough to give you all full of technical info ...


So ...
The handle is nice, if somewhat late for the style of music I was working on a previously AWE40CE NT Ibanez (https://fr.audiofanzine.com/produits/avis/index% 2Cidproduit 2C27008.html%), but having purchased to ska, to paraphrase Gad Elmaleh motto is "";)
Well, as a c ** I bought a tyrant with the strings too hard (Elixir, as always ...) and I tend to m'exploser hands after half an hour of intense scratching ...
Otherwise, I easily fall in 17 ~ 18 ° freight, but after the body of the gene scratched a bit (but it sounds niquel to 20, except that I could not place it!)
It's a whole lil jig (for ska, etc ... niquel to jump!) Not heavy, not awkward, very handy, despite the fact that I wear very close to the body.
His level, I am a bit disappointed with the time, compared to what I got on my fire-NT Ibanez AWE40CE (https://fr.audiofanzine.com/produits/avis/index% 2Cidproduit 2C27008.html%) .
Basically, it's cool for the ska band, but blah for work solo acoustic ...


So like I said above, it is well suited to play ska, rock, raggae etc ... But when I want to test the pure acoustic performance, I tend to be disappointed ...
I have not bought the amp, but I think I'll take me a Ibanez Troubadour TA35, but from the perspective of a future purchase, Once Again, an Ibanez AWE40CE NT (http: / / fr.audiofanzine.com / products / view / index%% 2Cidproduit 2C27008.html).
Otherwise, the sound is clean, hair metal I'd say ...


I've had six months, and I have not to complain too ...
Perfect for exploring stall on the beach (I live in Nice ^ ^) due to its small size, it very convenient for me up to see the game frenzied.
I was still in mourning for my "Sweet Dreams" (AW40CE NT) when I bought this one without conviction ... I just knew I needed one scratching for the ska band ...
I do not regret the purchase, but compared to what I like to play personally, it's not enough ...
I did not pay dearly ... normal, it was a Christmas present (ok, I go out ...)
Joking aside, I think it was in the ~ € 250 but I'm really not at all ...
With experience, I would do if the choice, I have no idea ... It was mostly a matter of budget ...
If I had the money for purposes that I had at that moment, I bought an electric amp that goes with it and a new "Sweet Dreams" ...
But hey, as they say in the song ... "We do what we can, not what we want ..."

I suggest for a beginner who has to pay attention to its portfolio, but still wants a quality instrument, handy and attractive (I love the black ^ ^)

- Volume
- Bass
- Treble
- Tuner


The neck is thin and trs trs so enjoyable!
Access in acute is easy.
Being a guitar small size, it is trslgre.
Because it's an acoustic guitar and there is little rglages, we get easily a good sound.
For information, the tuner indicates that if the note played is too high or too low without prciser the cart. That's what I reproach this tuner. In addition, you must connect a jack to activate the tuner.


The sound is good for the price trs!
However, the sound is not rev high if not amplified because of his size.


Aesthetics I love this guitar!
The report qualitprix is ​​really good!
It was really a good instrument for this price!
It's a good guitar for beginners but also for walking!
