Small body with lower bout width of 372 (14 21/32") and upper bout width of 280 (11"), 100 x 105 body depth gives ideal resonation of each and every note played. Stronger and denser than Sitka spruce, the Adirondack spruce is characterized by broad dynamics as well as articulation and smoothness at high volume.
The elastic tactile response suits both aggressive strumming and precise flatpicking.
Adirondack spruce bracing further sets apart the unique sound and response of this exceptional wood. Famously used on the sought-after vintage Martin dreadnaughts of the 1930’s, the difficult-to- source Adirondack spruce is the crowning feature of this model at a most reasonable price.
Blackwood is like a combination of the low-mids of mahogany, the brightness of maple and the rich overtones of rosewood. This versatility makes blackwood stand out for both fingerstyle playing or strumming as well as being a perfect match for the spruce top.
With a sophisticated modern design and innovative technical engineering, the Fishman® Flex Blend System offers a wide range of sonic control along with a built-in tuner. Volume, Tone, Phase, Blend and Tuner functions are all available from three knobs and the tuner display. You can also adjust the Tone knob to best suit fingerpicking or strumming techniques without feedback issues and other sonic anomalies while delivering the most natural acoustic sound to your amplification system.
A very strong and dense wood, ebony provides a tight and coherent low-end with enhanced mids. The jet-black imparts class and a luxurious look.
Thanks to Frank Gambale's dedication on designing of the guitar, the instrument designed based on modern Art Deco influence.
Preferred by many guitar makers and players for rich tone and sustain, the TUSQ is an advanced polymer that's formed under heat and pressure for uniform density. It's designed to transfer string energy more efficiently, and to make guitars come alive with enhanced harmonics, volume and sustain.
