SOLID WOOD TOPS
Along with its body shape, a guitar’s top is the defining element ofits sound, driving, through its vibration, the key aspects of volume,tone, sustain and projection.

A solid wood toptranslates those vibrations with more immediacy and purity of tone, andreacts more directly with the intent of a player. If you are at anintermediate level or above, you will appreciate the instantlyrecognizable benefits of a solid wood top.

Historically, serious guitar players on-the-move have faced a rathertough dilemma; contend with the challenges of traveling with a full-sizeguitar or settle for a more convenient, smaller instrument withtraditionally reduced sound quality… the travel guitar.
SITKA SPRUCE TOP
The world’s most popular topwood, for a reason. Sitka has an idealstrength-to-weight ratio, yielding a strong fundamental, high velocityof sound and a pleasing elasticity. Translation? Sitka sounds great forheavy strumming, light fingerpicking and everything in between.
MAHOGANY BACK & SIDES
Long treasured by cabinetmakers and shipwrights for its simple,straight-grained beauty, strength and workability, mahogany—used intops, backs, sides and necks—is also one of the true classic tonewoods,famous for its clear, strong fundamental; even string-to-string balance;and warm midrange emphasis. Mahogany pairs well with spruce tops aswell as with itself in single species guitars—and both combinationsdefine much of American roots music.
