Does Ibanez make a good Accoustic?

I have a Taylor, but I only play accoustic about three times a year, so I don't need a $2000 guitar hanging on the wall . I'm going to get rid of it and get something cheaper. Being that I have become an Ibanez freak I would like to stay with them. Any suggestions?

UK magazine Guitarist reviewed the EP-9 a couple of months ago and gave it a 5/5 star rating

Seagull is a Canadian acoustic; part of a group of Canadian brands I believe that include LaPatrie and possible Godin as well. They are awesome for the price, and pretty close to awesome regardless of price as well. My brother has two, and they are great fun to play and fine sounding.

Re: Does Ibanez make a good Accoustic?

My local dealer sells seagull. He always tries to sell me one when I go in. So I guess he is serious about them being pretty good for the money. I thought he was just being a salesman. I'll check them out.
I was going to get an ep9, but someone here told me they were ****e. I'm surprised they got a 5/5. I can't find one around here to try.

Re: Does Ibanez make a good Accoustic?

I love my EP7, haven't tried any of the other models. I own a martin too,, but like my EP7 better. I was thinking of getting one of the exotic woods models, they're not too expensive.

Cool Re: Does Ibanez make a good Accoustic?

The Ibanez acoustics sound pretty nice IMO. If I were you I'd go to GC and play different guitars to see which brand plays and sounds better to "YOU"

Re: Does Ibanez make a good Accoustic?

i really want to try an EP9.

i have a Tacoma acoustic which is one of the best bang for the buck acoustics out there IMHO. Fender realized this and bought the company. i would buy another if something happened to mine.

Seagull would be my second choice and a close second at that. third choice would be an Alvarez. of course i'm talking in the more affordable range of acoustics (under $900).

i have a friend who bought a Carvin Cobalt and he loves it. he's left handed so i haven't played it.

make sure you try out an Ibanez acoustic before you buy it. my local Ibanez dealer stopped carrying Ibanez acoustics recently due to quality control. i think they said it was like 4 out of 6 that came in had to be sent back due to various quality control issues. that's pretty damn scary if you ask me.
