    For those of you who have missed out ... as well as those who bought ... the White Americana, then the Black Holiday get ready to open your wallets for the Belmont. It's $299.99 with one Vistatone pickup and a whammy bar and the specs says it has a case. No neck pickup. No piezo pickup.

    The color is described as a "poppy red."

    (note Alto has it listed as a "Blemont" but it's a "Belmont".)

    UPDATE: I just did a "dummy" order and strange enough the BLACK15 discount worked to bring it down to $254.99.

    So I put a question mark in my title because I don't understand how this discount would work on a guitar that has already been massively discounted so I'm thinking Alto may cancel the promotion. Who knows?

    The Alto Bucks discount would not work, moreover.

    You are right. And the BLACK15 code also works. However, no whammy bar. And it's not poppy red.

    You're right. I skipped down to the specs and no case is mentioned but it is elsewhere on the web page. The case with the Belmont is listed in the specs. I will try to correct my post. So I think it is more versatile but it is sort of letting you pick either a neck pickup (and a nice Art Deco-designed bridge) or the whammy.

    Btw, in the earlier listing they were $349.99 with a 10 percent discount so this is a better deal obviously.

    No White Holidays however.

    After all of the glowing feedback from Don and others, I just couldn't resist.

    • Black Holiday, $254.99 shipped with case.
    Looking forward to seeing what "all the fuss is about". ;)

    Thanks for the head's up Ralph!!

    My buddy in the band Otis plays one of these Belmonts. It’s spectacular. I can’t find any vids of him playing it though.

    Was trying to resist all the Black Friday hype, but this might be too good a deal to pass up. Trying to decide which model is the hardest part.

    That one PUP is plenty if you generally play on the bridge PUP. And the vibrato system is exceptional.

    The Belmont is sort of 'cut down to basics' instrument. Not just in the PUP dept, but the fingerboard is not bound.

    This is not a negative. It is part of its charm. It's a raw rocker!

    The Black Holiday is the better "value" but both are remarkable guitars.

    Maybe I should edit the title now ..

    Remember when I posted that I didn't know how long that 15 percent off deal with BLACK15 would last? Well I again did a "dummy" order and ... surprise ... the discount now didn't work for me.

    However I think the ALTO BUCKS 15 promotion may work, although I don't know how to check. When I did my first "dummy" order I didn't check fully to see if it worked.

    But the BLACK15 again doesn't seem to be valid now.

    Yep POOF!! Gone.
    Now you can get the 15% Altobucks for future purchase.
    Oh well, it saved me from possibly buying another guitar.
    Sort of odd the discount is gone. Who knows?
    Thanks, Ralph for the update. Leave the title, it was true when you posted it :)

    Most sellers do not include the added discount to already reduced products. Indeed such is almost universal in my experience.

    I had noted that in my original post, or actually my reply to my post. But I'm glad Pat V. got the discount. And it's quite possible the discount has just shifted from an immediate one (BLACK15) to the next order (ALTO BUCKS15) but as I said I didn't check properly to see if the ALTO BUCKS15 discount was also in effect at the same time as BLACK15.

    Perhaps Pat V. can tell us if that was the case. A posting I saw this morning over at Slickdeals.net said both promotions were in effect at one time.

    I only used the "Black15 discount that gave me $45.00 off.
