Whether you are in the studio, playing on stage, or just practicing at home, every note that leaves this guitar will be articulate and rich. Solo playing will soar without compromising the overall balance of the guitar.
If you wish to match vintage specs for this model, use an Adirondack Spruce top and Honduras Mahogany sides and back, which will match the tonal quality of the original model produced in 1933.
Also, with a medium sized body, this instrument will be comfortable for players of all physical statures. With the neck joining the body at the 14th fret, it will allow you to reach the upper registers without the need for a cutaway.
This plan features our newest bracing pattern. The V Brace. This is a completely different patterns as compared to the standard X-Brace pattern that has been around since C.F. Martin introduced it on their Dreadnought series of guitars in the 1920's. The V-Brace balances the tone better and drives the sound toward the soundhole much more directly. Also the top will vibrate more freely due to the fact the only brace tied to the sides is the lateral brace.
Structural support is enhance by the enlarged bridge plate being tied not only to the top, but to the twin V-Braces as well.
