The ALT30 Altstar is the perfect option for the aspiring electric guitarist with a drive to explore the world of acoustics. Its compact dreadnought body, 15.7” fingerboard radius, tighter string spacing, and 25.5” scale were all chosen to offer electric guitarists a seamless transition to acoustic playing. It includes a spruce top, sapele back and sides, a maple neck and laurel fingerboard.
ALT30 Altstar also offers one more surprise; the neck joins the body at the 16th fret rather than the 12th. This small but important design feature, along with a single-cut body, affords unparalled upper-fretet access offering unrestricted playing in any register.
The Ibanez AEQ2U onboard electronics afford added flexibility for gigging out, as well as jamming at home. So, whether you’re just looking to delve into the world of acoustics, or an established player seeking a quieter option for practice while maintaining an electric guitar feel, this is your axe.
