Ibanez PF15ECE Review

There are some things that you remember for all of your life. One of those things for a guitar player is their first guitar. In this Ibanez Pf15ECE review, I hope to show you that this guitar deserves to be every guitar players first real guitar.

The Ibanez PF15ECE is by far the best beginners electric acoustic guitar on the market. Coming in for under $300.00 you can’t go wrong.

The gloss black finish, gold die-cast tuners, and pearl dot inlays give the Ibanez PF15ECE a distinguished appearance.

The Ibanez PF15ECE includes an onboard tuner with your guitar!

If you are starting out or have a child that wants to learn guitar, this is an excellent guitar for the purpose and will last you many years. I know, I own one.

Bottom Line

I still remember my first car, first date, and first guitar. This guitar is the best choice for someone’s first guitar. They will never forget it!

For under 200 bucks, this Ibanez PF15ECE makes its owners proud. There’s not a single complaint about this acoustic-electric guitar for the price range it comes with.  I own this guitar, and I have no complaints. It is not a Taylor or a Martin, but for the price, it is a great guitar.

Just take a moment to listen to this great beginner guitar.
