Ibanez’s new Altstar series of acoustic guitars come equipped with an Ibanez AEQ2UT on-board preamp and an onboard tuner, making it more than capable in a live performance situation.  Every Altstar has a Spruce top, Sapele back and sides, and a Maple neck topped with a Laurel fingerboard, combining to generate a bright and present tone. The body is significantly more compact than a typical acoustic, yet the guitar still retains a full 25.5” scale length. The neck also has narrower string spacing and meets the body at the 16th fret rather than the 12th, providing significantly better upper fret access over most other acoustic designs.
