AGED TO VINTAGE TOP
A vintage instrument is the holy grail ofacoustic guitar tone. The wood on the top cures and opens up more overtime. 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 ofa decades-old, highly-sought-after acoustic. This torrefaction processdelivers that amazing tone to you right out of the box.
SOLID ADIRONDACK SPRUCE TOP
