What's special about this item?
Feature: What it does:
Fishman MX-T electronics Classic Fishman sound with soundhole tuner
Graph Tech Tusq nut Increased harmonics and sustain, rich tone
Sitka spruce top Projects rich, crisp and responsive tone
Ziricote back and sides Lovely grain, pronounced lows and highs
The 14-fret cutaway on this Grand Performance model is striking, but it's the back and sides that really grab your attention. They're made from a fine veneer of ziricote a tonewood with a deeply layered grain that has a mesmerizing mix of light tones and dark veins and a majestic, cathedral-like look. Beyond its stunning appearance, this professional-grade guitar is equipped with Fishman MX-T electronics and a soundhole tuner that auto mutes the output so your audience won't know when you're tuning. Yet the best part might be a price that's every bit as attractive as the guitar.

Of playing guitar constantly and owning over50 guitars I have finally found the only acoustic guitar that produces the tone I have heard in my head since I started playing in 1962.Right out of the box the action, the feel, the tone, the resonance and sustain were perfect. Mine has the 0 kotei back inside and is it not only incredible to look at it also as the most perfect fit and finish I have seen on any guitar I have owned no matter the price. Mine has the ziricote back and sides and is it not only incredible to look at it also as the most perfect fit and finish I have seen on any guitar I have owned no matter the price.
