Hozen Guitars OO Flamed Maple MG-HG-OMKO4KV
HOZEN GUITARS RED LABEL
Inspired by the great guitars of the Golden Era the Red Label was born out of Hozen’s desire to build “period correct” instruments. Available in 5 shapes and various iconic wood combinations, each piece is handvoiced to possess rich fundamentals, clear projection, and graceful response down to the very last note. From the compact Single O to the iconic Slope Shoulder Dreadnought, these guitars bring nostalgia and inspiration to today’s players.
Though bracing patterns affect the tonal characteristics of an acoustic guitar, there is no formulaic way of guaranteeing the best tone. Every piece of wood is different that is why we take time to individually voice every Traditional Series guitar to deliver an instrument that has a very delicate response, rich in projection, and full of character.
RESPONSIVE WITH FOCUSED FUNDAMENTALS
Inspired by the iconic guitars of the past, the Traditional Series is voiced to ensure that they are responsive and projects rich tone with greater focus on the fundamentals – a once inimitable tonal character of these instruments from the golden years, bringing inspiration and nostalgia in every single strum.
We source for the best tonewoods all over the world and naturally season them for years to ensure that they are responsive and have the ideal moisture content. Featuring iconic pairings of the past, the wood that we use for the Traditional Series are handselected based on how fast the sound travels across the board, richness of tap tones, deflection, and woodgrain.
ICONIC DESIGN, MODERN APPOINTMENTS
Bridging the old and the new, these guitars present a vintage vibe with modern appointments. Available in both solid square headstock and slotted headstock accompanied by fine details of Herringbone purfling and Abalone inlays, they are furnished with Carbon Fiber Reinforced necks and Reversed Kerfing – weaving tradition with innovation.
Though bracing patterns affect the tonal characteristics of an acoustic guitar, there is no formulaic way of guaranteeing the best tone. Every piece of wood is different that is why we take time to individually voice every Original Series guitar to deliver an instrument that has a very delicate response, rich in projection, and full of character.
