Great for the electric guitarist who wants a bit more of a familiar feel in an acoustic, the Alt30 Altstar is an affordable and fun option. This guitar features solidly built acoustic components, hybrid design elements, and great sounding electronics.

Solidly Built Acoustic Components
Designed in an Altstar shape, this Ibanez is cut from Sapele and has a Sitka spruce top. The body sports a shallow lower cutaway and the soundhole is a very untraditional non-circular shape. The neck is cut from maple with a satin finish and capped by a Walnut fretboard.

Hybrid Design Elements
While the Alt30 Altstar looks like an acoustic at first glance, you'll quickly pick out aspects which look like they came from an Ibanez electric. The neck of this guitar joins the body at the 16th fret, differing from the more common 14th fret, giving you more room to shred. The fretboard also sports Altstar specially designed inlays, more likened to inlays found on Ibanez electric. Perhaps most notably, the headstock of this guitar sports that sharp, edgy Ibanez design, and is adorned with electric-style Chrome Die-Cast Tuners.

Great Sounding Electronics
To capture great sound from this unique hybrid design, the Altstar is outfitted with an Ibanez Undersaddle pickup. Connected to an Ibanez AEQ2UT preamp, this guitar also has an onboard tuner. Volume, Bass, and Treble knobs allow you to modify your tone as you see fit.

Excellent guitar for the price and unique style to boot.


Love it so far, sounds great and worked perfectly right out the box. A little quieter than some other acoustics I've played but it fits my living situation to not be too loud anyways so its perfect. Great color too!



Excellent guitar!


Beautiful guitar with the excellent quality and sound of Ibanez for an excellent price, the only bad thing I could say is that I had to wait a lot for the inventory replacement, but I can't complain, the shipping was quite fast, 100% satisfied!
