VINTAGE OM BODY
The L200ATV features a classic OM body style. This body style initially developed in the 1920’s captures the pre-war era tone that is often sought after. Sonically it delivers a sound that is larger than its compact size would hint at and with a level of dynamic responsiveness that is a joy to play.
AGED TO VINTAGE TOP
A vintage instrument is the holy grail of acoustic guitar tone. The wood on the top cures and opens up more over time. This unleashes a tonal quality that is missing in new instruments — until now. Using a special process that we call ATV (Aged To Vintage) we treat the solid Sitka spruce top to give it that big and open tone of a decades-old, highly-sought-after acoustic. This torrefaction process delivers that amazing tone to you right out of the box.
PAU FERRO BACK & SIDES
Pau Ferro, also known as Morado, Santos Rosewood or Bolivian Rosewood boasts many of the qualities that are highly regarded in tonewood that is close to Indian Rosewood. It's stable, abrasion resistant, hard, attractive, exotic and has good impression strength parallel to the grain.
The L200ATV’s semi-gloss finish exhibits the best qualities of both gloss and satin finishes, providing a luxurious look that also feels smooth to the touch.
GROVER® VINTAGE TUNERS
Vintage-style look and tuning stability complement the overall classic look of this model. With an 18:1 tuning ratio, these tuners ensure precise tuning adjustments with smoothness and the highest quality functionality.
EBONY BRIDGE & BRIDGE PINS
The high density of Ebony wood keeps the fundamental acoustic sound focused and tight with greater sonic projection than plastic, enhancing the transfer of the string vibrations throughout the soundboard top, body and the neck.
45MM(1 3/4") NUT WIDTH
A slightly wider nut width that makes it easier for fingerstyle playing.
