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.
RESPONSIVE WITH GREATER FOCUS ON COMPLEX OVERTONES
In addition to the signature responsiveness of our instruments, the Original Series guitars are specially voiced to possess complex overtones without compromising the richness of the fundamentals – resulting to a guitar that is inspiring to play especially for fingerstyle enthusiasts.
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. The wood that we use for the Original Series are handselected based on how fast the sound travels across the board, richness of tap tones, deflection, and woodgrain.
Available with our signature CSB options – Florentine Cutaway, Soundport & Beveled Armrest – these guitars standout as they offer something that you rarely see off-the-rack. Aside from the playing comfort that the Beveled Armrest offers, the Soundport brings you to another level of expression and inspiration as it allows you to hear in detail every nuance of your playing.
