Ibanez Altstar ALT20 Acoustic-Electric Guitar

If you mainly play electric guitar and want to get into acoustics, this Ibanez is the perfect choice thanks to its 16-fret neck joint and fast-playing neck.
Ibanez has historically offered acoustic instruments that electric guitarists would find inviting and easy to play. Altstar models are the perfect option for the aspiring electric player with a drive to explore the world of acoustic guitars. The Altstar series features a compact dreadnought body, 15.7" fingerboard radius, tighter string spacing and 25.5" scale neck, all designed to offer electric guitarists a seamless transition to acoustic playing.

The single-cut Altstar also features a neck joint at the 16th fret, rather than the 12th fret, affording unparalleled upper fret access. Whether you're just looking to delve into the world of acoustic guitars, or you are seeking a quieter practice option while maintaining an electric guitar feel, this is your axe!

Features:

- The Maple neck provides stability and bright tonal character.
- A Walnut fretboard features a well-balanced tonal character from low to high end.

- Sapele back and sides offer a full-bodied and warm mid-range and a bright tone.

- The Walnut bridge transfers string vibration directly to the body, delivering a natural and warm tone.
