Ibanez is reaching out to electric guitar players with the new Altstar ALT30RCS acoustic-electric guitar. The neck has the feel and friendliness of an electric guitar, right down to the headstock with its 6-inline tuners. If you were to grab the neck without touching the body, you'd think you were playing an electric guitar!
Additionally, the neck joins the body at the 16th fret, rather than the 12th fret like traditional acoustic guitars. This permits quick and easy access to the upper frets for those high octave solos. The back of the neck has a very smooth satin finish that permits fast and effortless fretting.
The volume, balance, and tone of the ALT30 is pleasing and should blend well with other instruments in the band. There are ample bass and mid tones without either being too intense.
Other important features of the Ibanez ALT30 include a compact dreadnought body with a soft Florentine cutaway, electric guitar string spacing, AEQ-2UT preamp with built-in tuner, and chrome die-cast tuners. All of these features are meant to appeal to the electric guitarist.
If you're an electric guitar player stepping into the acoustic realm for the first time, or an acoustic player needing a new axe, the Ibanez ALT30 would be an ideal guitar to buy.
