The GA-LE PF is the first Limited Edition model of the Grand Regal Series. This incredible instrument features the highest grade Adirondack Spruce top and Pau Ferro back and sides as well as premium components such as Gotoh® hardware and L.R. Baggs® electronics. Evoking a mysterious feeling with the elaborate mystery circle inlays, the GA-LE PF is one-of-a-kind model with an unmatched look, sound and feel.
SOLID ADIRONDACK SPRUCE TOP (MASTER GRADE)
For the Limited Edition models, only the highest grade woods (Master Grade) were used and Adirondack Spruce fits the bill with its strength and extreme dynamics and sensitivity. Even at full volume, you will still be able to hear smoothness in the tone without losing any definition.
SOLID PAU FERRO BACK & SIDES (MASTER GRADE)
Sometimes referred to as Santos Rosewood or Bolivian Rosewood, Pau Ferro is a high-grade tonewood often used on top-of-the-line musical instruments. As with the top, the highest grade Pau Ferro was used for the back and sides. Pau Ferro projects a full low-end with plenty of depth and warmth across the entire sonic range. The outstanding balance makes it ideal for a variety of musical styles and genres.
CUSTOM BEVEL CUT ARMREST & RIBREST
To enhance comfort and playability, custom bevel cuts for the arm rest and rib rest were implemented. Not only do these cuts provide ergonomic functionality, they provide a unique high-end look not often found on high-end acoustic guitars.
EBONY BRIDGE & FINGERBOARD
For the bridge and fingerboard, the dense and hard Ebony wood was used for strength as well as contributing a luxurious feel and a powerful full-bodied sound.
GOTOH® 510Z GOLD MACHINE HEADS
Featuring an extremely precise 21:1 tuning ratio, these tuners feel solid and ultra-smooth at the same time. The elegant and streamlined knobs also reduce fatigue during the tuning process. You will feel the quality of these tuners the moment you start tuning the guitar.
L.R. BAGGS® ANTHEM
The L.R. Baggs Anthem pickup/preamp system delivers the pure acoustic vibrations of the instrument to the amplifier and PA without any coloration. Unneeded feedback can also be easily and effectively controlled through minimalistic controls that do not interfere with the look of the instrument.
MYSTERY CIRCLE INLAY
Evoking a sense of mystery, the special Mystery Circle Inlay design provides a unique look to make the instrument even more stunning. This custom inlay design is also matched on the headstock to round out the otherworldly aesthetics.
DOUBLE-LOCK NECK JOINT
By combining the traditional dovetail neck joint method with bolt-on construction, this guitar’s exclusive Double-Lock Neck Joint increases the transfer of the vibrational energy between the body and the neck as well as greater structural integrity and stability.
Besides the truss rod, another method of reinforcement has been added to further improve the neck’s stability and strength. This method greatly enhances the neck to withstand instability caused by the climate and humidity changes.
VINTAGE LACQUER FINISH
To maximize the wood’s ability to vibrate without hindrance, a special vintage lacquer finishing method was used in which the finish is naturally permeated along the grains. This is a high-end finishing method that requires a great deal of experience and expertise and which allows the woods to vibrate to their full potential.
