The Artwood series was crafted to produce a traditional as well as a modern guitar. Technology moves forward at a frantic pace and the world of guitar craftsmanship is no different. In producing the Artwood series, we've respected the rich tradition of the acoustic guitar while adding modern interpretations in our continuing search for the ultimate in guitar tone.
SOLID CEDAR TOP
Cedar is after Spruce the most used tonewood for the top of an acoustic guitar. It's less dense then Spruce and therefor softer then Spruce. This results in a warmer more defined tone. Cedar also is more articulate when it comes to lower volume playing, it amplifies soft tones. It's exceptional for fingerpicking, which makes it the perfect tonewood for guitars with a smaller body size like the Auditorium, Orchestra Model or Parlor. It is also often the prefered tonewood for the top of a higher-end classical guitar.
MAHOGANY BACK & SIDES
The beloved mahogany wood has been a standard for back and sides on premium acoustics for many decades. The warm and well rounded low-end creates a basis for all music to reach it's audience. The mid-range is very strong and fullbodied, while the high-end is delicate and very pleasant.
