The slightly shallower body depth (82*104mm) spec was matched to the Martin OM bodies of the 1930’s.
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.
Bright yet natural with a strong and warm midrange, the beloved mahogany wood has been a standard for back and sides on premium acoustics for many decades. The solid mahogany back enhances body resonance and helps produce greater volume.
For that authentic vintage look, tortoise shell binding adorns the body to complement the overall aesthetics.
A slightly wider nut width that makes it easier for fingerstyle playing.
Crafted out of water buffalo bone for the most natural and transparent transfer of string vibrational energy into the body and neck
To match the golden aged look of the guitars from the 1930’s, a specially formulated toner is applied to the top.
Installed internally without cutting out any of the woods, the Sonitone EQ system retains all the natural resonance and the pure acoustic sound that other systems can’t. The controls are simple to use as well with only Volume and Tone.
The high-tech finish is strong and resistant to scratches while being lightweight to improve the natural acoustic resonance of the body for a full-bodied and rich tone.
