Great for the electrical guitarist who wants just a little more of a familiar feel in an acoustic, the Alt30 Altstar is an reasonably priced and fun option. This guitar features solidly built acoustic components, hybrid design elements, and great sounding electronics.Solidly Built Acoustic ComponentsDesigned in an Altstar shape, this Ibanez is cut from Sapele and has a Sitka spruce top. The body sports a shallow lower cutaway and the soundhole is a very untraditional non-circular shape. The neck is cut from maple with a satin finish and capped by a Walnut fretboard.Hybrid Design ElementsWhile the Alt30 Altstar looks like an acoustic to start with glance, you can quickly pick out aspects which appear to be they came from an Ibanez electric. The neck of this guitar joins the body on the 16th fret, differing from the more common 14th fret, giving you more room to shred. The fretboard also sports Altstar specially designed inlays, more likened to inlays found on Ibanez electric. Most likely most notably, the headstock of this guitar sports that sharp, edgy Ibanez design, and is adorned with electric-style Chrome Die-Cast Tuners. Great Sounding ElectronicsTo capture great sound from this unique hybrid design, the Altstar is outfitted with an Ibanez Undersaddle pickup. Connected to an Ibanez AEQ2UT preamp, this guitar also has an onboard tuner. Volume, Bass, and Treble knobs permit you to modify your tone as you see fit.
