Standard concert guitar features.
The lightweight soundboard is braced in an asymmetrical grid layout for responsiveness and evenness of support across the guitar's range with high structural integrity.
Standard thickness back and sides are reinforced with additional laminations and the back is arched and braceless. The light weight, compliant soundboard is joined to the rigid sides and back with solid quarter linings to maximise sustain and projection.
The neck is slim (21 to 22mm thick including fretboard) and is profiled for ease of playing. The shaft is supported by the neck block/cradle which extends to the first transverse brace for neck joint rigidity.
The length of each string is individually compensated at both nut and saddle to counter the effects of fretting and travel stretch and ensure accurate intonation on all strings at all points of the scale.
The fretboard is elevated above the soundboard to provide improved access to the frets beyond the body join.
The armrest removes the damping effect of the forearm on the soundboard and aids player comfort.
Optional features (at additional cost).
Tilt-adjustable neck - the playing action can be adjusted by alteration of the neck angle to counter the effects of humidity change or to accommodate different playing styles.
Adjustable sound port - a sound port with a closeable hatch fitted to the side of the upper bout which gives the player a significantly improved appreciation of the forward sound of the instrument..
Radiused fretboard - playing ease can be enhanced with a slight curvature of the fretboard surface.
