AEL108MD & AEL2012

Hi Guys, new member here from Tasmania, way down under Downunder!!

I've been playing guitar for over 20yrs, but have only ever owned one guitar, a Maton EM725C Stockman Dreadnought Cutaway.
It's been a great guitar, but recently I've been thinking of adding to my collection with another guitar.
Having said that, I'm not after "just" another guitar, I want something a little different.
I considered a 12-String, and fell in love with the look of the Transparent Black finish on the AEL2012
Unfortunately, due to our remote location here in Tassie, I have 3 music shops within 200kms, but none of them stock this guitar.
I've played around with other 12-string guitars from LAG, Fender, Tanglewood, and the Ibanez PF1512, but all of them have a real jangly sound that I don't find very attractive.
While looking at these guitars, and playing around on Ibanez's website, I came across the AEL108MD 8-String.
Now, here is something that is really out of the ordinary. It features the octave strings only on the D & G Strings which really gives the guitar a boosted mid-range.
Does anyone have experience with either of these two models?
I'm seriously considering still buying the AEL2012, but removing some of the additional strings to make it the same as the AEL108MD. This will give me the opportunity to re-set it back to a 12-String when the mood gets me, but also the added shape-shifter that is fitted to the Pre-amp.
Any thoughts or opinions are greatly accepted!!
