Well, in the end I bought this one: an Ibanez PCBE12Mh OPN.
I am partial to mahogany and to a body style tha echoes thr glorious Martin 000.
I checked the sound unplugged and plugged in, against a FenderCB 100.
I did not find such differences to change my mind. The preamp of the Fender was more versatile, but the tone of the Ibanez is very good and rhe eq is useful even if it lacks a mid control.
The scale of the Ibanez is 32" and this is helpful too. I have less ability to play up the neck, but the low notes do not feel so far.
