VINTAGE OM BODY
The body shape is the classic OM (Orchestra Model) that was developed in the 1920’s and which still has a devoted following due to its compact size and easy playability. The sound is bright and has an immediate responsiveness, making it ideal for fingerstyle playing.
ALL-SOLID HAWIIAN KOA (MASTER GRADE)
Hawaiian Koa is one of the most sought after tonewoods for both its beauty and sound. The tone is bright and cohesive with a strong midrange. Ideal for both strumming and fingerstyle playing, the sound suits virtually all genres and musical styles. This model only features hand-selected Master Grade woods for production.
CUSTOM BEVELED ARMREST
To enhance comfort and playability, an arm rest bevel cut has been applied to the body. This feature also imparts a high-end look besides providing function.
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.
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.
WOOD STARS INLAY
The exclusive wood inlays on the fretboard are of a special design with detailed stars and match well with the exquisite figuring of the Hawaiian Koa.
GOTOH® 510Z GOLD MACHINEHEADS
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.
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.
