Ibanez Altstar ALT30FM Acoustic-electric Guitar - Red Doom Burst High Gloss
This Unique Dreadnought Is Primed for Electric Players
A thin cutaway body and unfettered high-fret access give the Ibanez Altstar ALT30FM a familiar feel that electric players will take to quickly. The compact dreadnought body issues a big tone from its flame maple-topped-sapele tonewood medley. Up the neck, a wickedly flat 15.7-inch fingerboard radius equips this acoustic-electric for speedy single-note flurries — a feature that's sure to be appreciated by progressive music soloists to bluegrass flatpickers. And with the AEQ2UT onboard electronics, all you need to gig out is your Ibanez Altstar ALT30FM and an amp or PA. What's more, chrome die-cast tuners and an onboard electronic tuner will keep you looking and sounding your best.
Easy-playing neck built for speed
Need an acoustic that you can blaze on? The Ibanez Altstar ALT30FM's satin-backed maple neck, with a walnut fingerboard and 15.7-inch radius, is built for speed. Plus, thanks to the iconic Ibanez angular headstock — an electric guitar institution for decades — the ALT30FM makes a statement before you ever play a note.
Comfortably compact body
The ALT30FM's thinned-out dreadnought body is suited for hours of performance, onstage or around the house. The reduced body design is not only lighter and more comfortable, but it keeps boomy feedback at bay. The soft Florentine cutaway provides effortless access all the way up the neck as well. With its unique stage presence, guitarists agree that the Altstar ALT30FM is a welcome radical departure from the traditional acoustic-electric.
Onboard Ibanez electronics
The ALT30FM'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.
