Ibanez Montage acoustic wins  Best in Show award at Summer NAMM 2010

Ibanez had one of the larger booths at Summer NAMM 2010 in Nashville, and the company walked away with a Best in Show award for its new Montage acoustic/electric guitar.

Designed for guitarist who need a variety of sounds but don't want to carry an arsenal of acoustics and solid bodies, the Montage offers a range of sounds, from purely clear acoustic to heavily distorted electric and everything in between, in just one guitar. They're attractive, too, with a unique body style that is available in either Pearl White or Black and marked by a distinctive soundhole.

Here are just afew of the Montage's highlights:

* 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 Under Saddle pickup, along with 3-band EQ with anti-feedback system, delivers clear acoustic tone without any compromise. The magnetic pickup and gain control give you distorted electric guitar sound instantly.

* A new, simpler version of Montage, the MSC350 features a 3-way switch that enables you to get both acoustic and electric guitar sounds.

* Unique controls: Volume, Gain, Anti-feedback Frequency and Tone, and the Gain control will give you distorted electric guitar sound instantly.
