Solid top electro-acoustic guitar with cutaway folk/OM body shape from multi-award winning Artist series that is great sounding instrument suitable for all players and styles of music. It is designed to get the best out if its components, and for them to work together to produce balance, lively projection and great response. These components include the FST2 bracing system, bi-level rosewood bridge, real bone nut and saddle, great quality tone woods including solid A+ Sitka spruce top and mahogany back, sides and neck, and thin finish – 50/50 semi-gloss on the neck and gloss on the top. The FST2 is a forward shifted X brace design, which means the axis of the X is closer to the sound hole and therefore creates a larger soundboard area allowing for more energy and vibration to be harnessed. Both the X braces and asymmetric tone bars are carefully scalloped. The FST2 also creates very good balance so both the treble and bass registers are clearly present and balanced in relation to each other. Along with a more angled headstock with rosewood plate and chrome die-cast tuners, the bi-level bridge increases string tension by making the break angle of the strings from the saddle to the top more acute. Improved string tension adds to the sound, feel and response, which are also heightened by the use of real bone nuts and saddles. Other premium features include the B-Band SYS550 for optimal live performance, 21-fret rosewood fingerboard with abalone and mother-of-pearl inlay at 12th fret, ivory ABS binding, dovetail neck joint (joined at 14th fret), black pickguard and D’Addario EXP strings. Scale length is 630 mm, nut width is 44.45 mm. Sunburst colour design.
