The Ibanez PC12MH has an impressive spec sheet. With a (laminated) mahogany back, sides, top and neck in a beautiful open pore natural finish, the guitar looks fantastic. Machine heads are traditional three a side chrome open gear tuners with butterbean knobs.
These look great and worked well, they were however a little small, and if things started to get a little stiff they may become quite hard to turn or tough for smaller fingers. The mahogany neck is topped with a rosewood 20 fret fretboard that was a breeze to play.
No problems with action of doom on this guitar, tricky chords and stretches were possible anywhere on the neck, with no fret buzz or intonation issues! The fret edges were smooth and the neck shape nice and comfortable, thin enough for smaller hands.
The Grand Concert sized body makes things even more easy going if you are just starting out as opposed to a Dreadnought bodied guitar and this also makes seeing what you are doing easier too, as you don’t feel like the guitar is a mile in front of your body, with your right arm up by your ear! X bracing is used throughout and the overall finish and attention to detail is excellent.
Add a rosewood bridge set with Ibanez bridge pins to keep the strings in place, a tidy looking scratch plate and faux tortoiseshell soundhole rosette and you have a thoroughly classy looking instrument.
