Tweaking the ATL-10 from Ibanez

How to slightly improve the ATL acoustic electric guitar from Ibanez.

I've found that the battery compartment for the 9V is really hard to get to unless you take off the strings. This is not good if you are using it with an amplifier a lot because it takes a lot of time away from your band mates as you attempt to change the battery in your guitar. I would move it more towards the sound hole to make it easier accessible.

Another change would be to the bridge pins, the stock pins are plastic and not very durable for extended use. Adding aluminum pins or ionized colored aluminum pins would make the pins more durable to the wear and tear of changing strings. Another great addition would be a string holder on the headstock. Because this is an acoustic guitar, you have to set the strings into the bridge pins and it's difficult to do without anything holding the strings on the head stock besides for the tuning heads.

Another addition I would have included is a plastic or metal plate for the jack housing at the bottom as the stock housing is simply installed into the wood. This makes it hard to work on if the input nut comes loose and the jack retracts into the guitar housing. The only way to fix it if such a thing happens is to remove the guitar's strings and fish it through the jack hole again. The addition of the plate would allow easier access to the jack if such an event were to occur and would make maintenance a breeze.

All and all the Ibanez ATL is a great instrument and is of really good quality. These minor and cheap improvements would make it that much better. It's a wonder that they weren't installed stock.
