A thin cutaway body and unfettered high-fret access give the Ibanez Altstar ALT30 a familiar feel that electric players will take to quickly. The compact dreadnought body issues a big tone from its spruce-topped-sapele tonewood medley. Up the neck, a wickedly flat 15.7" fingerboard radius equips this acoustic-electric for true shredding â€” a feature that's sure to be appreciated by progressive-music soloists to bluegrass flatpickers. And with the AEQ2UT onboard electronics, the Ibanez Altstar ALT30 and an amp or PA are all you need to gig out. Chrome die-cast tuners and an onboard electronic tuner keep you sounding your best.
Need an acoustic that shreds? The Ibanez Altstar ALT30's satin-backed maple neck, walnut fingerboard and 15.7" radius is built for speed. And thanks to the iconic Ibanez angular headstock â€” an electric guitar institution for decades â€” the ALT30 makes a statement before you ever play a note.
The ALT30's onboard pickup is optimized for the AEQ2UT preamp, which provides a volume knob and 2-band EQ for level control, tone sweetening, and feedback management from the stage. Whether you're an electric player or first-time acoustic guitarist, you owe it to yourself to test-drive the Ibanez Altstar ALT30 from Sweetwater.
