Double sides usually ensure greater stiffness and stability. Thus the guitar achieves a sound more loud and defined. In our particular case, we had a customer who was, from the visual point of view, in love with Spalted Mango, from his acoustic preferences, however, he tended to guitars with a full mid-range.
For the construction of his Custom Guitar for this reason we chose double sides with an inner side made of Indian Rosewood. Indian Rosewood is not without reason one of the most popular woods for back and sides. It is known for its well-defined sound with a special punch in the low mid-range. Indian Rosewood combined with Spalted Mango results in a wonderful powerful and assertive tone, that still preserves a treble, fresh, airy and rich with overtones, which is typical for Spalted Mango. It is combined with a very quick response and, considering the size, a surprisingly high volume.
This little gem offers another feature, a proCut cutaway. In order to get enhanced access to upper frets, a slightly deeper cutaway was used for this Ambition Parlour. It is fitted at 15th fret. Usually we apply the proCut to larger models, where, depending on whether the guitar is 12 or 14 frets clear of the body, the neck-body transition is possible at 17th or even 19th fret. But this petite Parlor guitar demanded a special solution in order to keep the output quality, with regard to the smaller body.
Yesterday it started its journey to Greece.
