Quilted maple woods and a wide palette of acoustic and electric tones.
Guitarists are often called upon to cover all sorts of sounds and textures: acoustic, electric, rhythm, lead. Unfortunately, this usually results in a car full of extra gear. Not anymore: the Ibanez MSC380QM Montage Acoustic-Electric Guitar Quilt Maple Top is a complete sonic arsenal for those busy working musicians. You can get any sound, from purely clear acoustic to heavily distorted electric and everything in between, in just one guitar.
The Ibanez MSC380QM features a striking quilted maple top and body with a finish that shows off the wood grain. The mahogany neck with rosewood fretboard is perfectly tapered for comfort. Other refined appointments include gold die-cast tuners, Ibanez advantage bridge pins, Ivorex II nut & saddle, and full-control electronics.
Ivorex II nut
Ivorex II nut is stronger and more durable than bone and even harder than the original Ivorex. Ivorex II nut allows brilliant highs and more pronounced lows with less mid-range which makes Ivorex II-fitted guitars perfect for amplification.
The Montage features a 3-way switch that enables you to get both acoustic and electric guitar sounds. The under saddle pickup and the 3-band EQ with anti-feedback control deliver clear acoustic tones without compromise. The magnetic pickup and gain control give you distorted electric guitar sound instantly.
Your dilemma is now no longer an issue. Just grab one Montage series guitar, and you're set for the gig.

For the money, it's a great versatile guitar. I play it through a Fishman Loudbox Mini.They took off the reverb and chorus from the older model, but it still has a convenient built-in tuner and three-band EQ. the acoustic sounds great, and the electric so so. But I wanted it r the acoustic anyway. Having a magnetic pickup is just a bonus.No issues o far. Certain appointments look a little cheap (like the magnetic pickup), but only time will tell. There was a popping at the piezzo at first, but I don't hear it anymore.I did get a chance to okay a Taylor T5 but felt it wasn't worth four times the price of this. And I always liked Ibanez guitars (I have a BTB776 bass).
I ordered this after seeing a demo of a prototype on YouTube. This one does NOT come with chorus or reverb built in. When I took it out of the box and played it at first unplugged my initial reaction was "ich" what a cheap toy! I was pondering trading my first-born for a Taylot T5. Then I plugged it into a Fishman Loudbox mini and was astounded how it it sounded as an amplified acoustic. Then I plugged it into my Blues Junior and was floored by a very plausible electric sound that I think would fare well in a number of genres (jazz, blues, rock, country, rockabilly). Sure it's not the greatest axe in the world, but for the price, I think it is a great value and loads of fun. If you're looking to put something in a gig bag and go play electric or acoustic without schlepping around multiple guitars, this is it - though to really shine you need a non-electric amp (acoustic, keyboard or small PA system) to make the acoustic-only setting shine. Made in China, but so is almost everything (except great guitar music perhaps). Time will tell how well it holds up and how well the tuners stay in tune.
