Steel String Guitar Ambition
Back and Sides of Indian Silver Oak

The third member of the four Ambition steel string guitars, we tested, is made of Indian Silver Oak.

The three others have back and sides of Indian Walnut, Indian Rosewood and Spalted Mango.

Indian Silver Oak (Cardwellia Sublimis) has a warm, friendly, reddish-silvery hue with a very lively, but uniform, partly flamed pattern.

The tone of this Ambition is soft and mellow. Shimmering highs hover transparent and smooth and develop a vivid rich and dynamic sound. Even more impressive is its reactivity and a noticeable volume output.
