Your ESP LTD TL-6N Thinline-6 nylon-string classical acoustic-electric guitar boasts an irresistibly alluring resonance and distinct style, closing the gap between classical and electric guitars. A resonant maple-topped mahogany body gives off a bright sound with just enough depth to achieve a well-balanced output, and a crystal-clear B-Band Electret film transducer with active electronics pumps your playing through a B-Band T-7 preamp, complete with three-band EQ control, onboard tuner, master volume control, and phase switch. Part of ESP's TL series, the TL-6N boasts a sturdy mahogany neck topped with a smooth rosewood fingerboard spanning 22 jumbo frets.

Warm Acoustic Resonant Chamber

Take this classical acoustic electric for a spin and hear how much resonance each string achieves. That's due to the acoustic resonant chamber built from maple and mahogany. Maple brings in a rounded brightness to each note, while mahogany keeps things nice and warm, pushing those low and middle frequencies. This instrument boasts a somewhat atypical design for a classical guitar, with its narrow soundhole to the side rather than right under the strings -- a style that'll make you stand out visually as well as tonally from the crowd.

Articulate B-Band T-7 Preamp

A B-Band Electret film transducer with active electronics captures the colorful dynamics of each string and fires it through a B-Band T-7 preamp to forge a signal eager to hit your amplifier or PA system. An easy-to-read onboard read more tuner features a colored display screen that turns from blue to green when the string is in tune -- so it's easy to get tuned up fast in low lighting settings. You also have a phase switch, a master volume control, and three-band EQ control at your fingertips to tweak your output.

Thin U Shaped Mahogany Neck

Get your hand ready for some smooth playability. The mahogany neck on this classical acoustic-electric guitar nearly plays itself. A smooth rosewood fingerboard features 22 jumbo frets with comfortable action. The Thin U shape of this neck makes for a comfortable fit, and mahogany provides a nice push on the lower frequencies while also adding a good helping of sustain.

Built with Love

Your ESP LTD TL-6N Thinline classical acoustic electric guitar was designed to play just as silky as it sounds. Its Graphtech NuBone-XB nut and saddle primes each note and chord to maintain lasting intonation, lingering sustain, and overall articulate projection as your fingers make their way across the fingerboard. At the intersection of design between acoustic, electric, and classical guitars, this beauty allows you to apply techniques based in electric playing to a classical acoustic style.

"CLASSICAL ATTENTION"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
This guitar is not for everyone. However it is for those who want something different and have an interest in music with a classical feel. I have played my entire life and owned most of the worlds best. Martin, Gibson, Fender...we all know the drill. You will be surprised with the general quality and feel of the instrument. Without an amplifier it is as it looks. Lacking volume and tone. It plays without adjustment and has an amazing glow about it with amplification. I think the price is impressive..almost counterproductive. I would anticipate a guitar with this cut and craftsmanship is a grand. Onboard tuning is a real plus....it has grit but clearly is a classical guitar for amplification. You get what you pay for...its well done and here for long haul...
