The onboard overdrive / distortion, with 2 settings accessible via a 5-way toggle switch on the upper bout, is OK. Nothing to write home about, and I don't think its compelling enough to leave my electric guitar at home when I go to a gig. The chorus effect is not that strong... I wouldn't leave my chorus pedal at home, either. As for the reverb and phase reverse functions, I don't even know if I can figure out how to get them to work!
There is plenty of other tonal and versatile functionality available on this guitar, however. Like the onboard tuner and 2 notch filter controls.
But as a straight up ACOUSTIC ELECTRIC and ESPECIALLY as a straight up ACOUSTIC, the Montage is WELL WORTH the price of admission, imho! This guitar plays well, first of all, comparable to most acoustics in its price range.
Same goes for when it's plugged in..... It gives you the quality sound that you would expect from an acoustic electric. You can be confident taking this to a Sunday worship service, for example.
What I really like about this Ibanez Montage is how it sounds unplugged! It is so rich, sparkly and huge sounding! I don't know if I would take it busking at the beach or a bonfire. But I would definitely feel good just mic'ing it up while playing live with it!
As stated in the condition description, a n. Ice Hard Shell case is included with this listing. It's pretty well worn on the outside, but the inside is still in excellent shape....
Nice and plush and a terrific protection for your instrument! I've got the case on sale separately locally, so grab this listing now before that happens! This is overall an amazing looking, sounding, and playing Acoustic that you'll want to grab right away.
