Full Tone in a Travel Body

  • Bone nut, compensated bone saddle, and ebony bridge pins all help produce the tone preferred by acoustic guitarists.
  • Offset sound-hole design maximizes the resonance and volume of the soundboard and proprietary bracing and layup structure produce a spectacular tone for such a compact instrument.

Comfortable to Play

  • The wedge design angles the guitar into your body which places the guitar in a comfortable position for fingerboard access and viewing.
  • The dual-action steel truss-rod enables fine tuning of relief to suit any playing style.
  • Satin-finish low-c profile neck make this 24.5 inch scale super comfortable to play.
