Ovankol produces a rich mid range with clear high end.
Designed for projection, balance, and comfort, the AE's perfectly crafted contemporary body shape offers the best of all worlds.
The AE features bracing designed to project the guitar's complete sonic spectrum. From deep, robust lows; through a smooth, pronounced mid-range; to bright, articulate highs-the AE X bracing design delivers the complex overtones that are present in only the highest quality acoustic instruments.
The bone nut was chosen for its ability to transfer string vibration naturally. The thicker-than-ordinary 4mm bone saddle improves intonation accuracy.
These pins really are an advantage over old-fashioned pins. Advantage™ pins are easier to take out and easier to put in than standard pins. A special bulb-shaped end makes the pin easy to grip and also prevents the pin from being pushed in too far. Best of all, with Advantage™, the pin and string stay put.
