Sitka Spruce & Rosewood
Sitka spruce is a popular tonewood with acoustic guitars, as its delivers a strong projection, generates a broad dynamic range, and also accommodates a variety of different playing styles, making it extremely versatile. This stunning soundboard is greatly contrasted with its adjoining rosewood body, that delivers a bright high-end with a full low end and consistent tone. Both tonewoods offer a stunning grain which is delicately trimmed with a flame maple binding and Paula Abalone purfling.
This beautiful Electro Acoustic Guitar is equipped with a LR Baggs StagePro EQ and Element Pick Up that delivers a powerful volume for larger events. This innovative Element was engineered to mirror the soundboard’s actual movement as you play, and features a flexible film sensor only 2 thousandths of an inch thick which picks up the guitar’s most delicate nuances. Its discreet EQ sidemount located on the upper bout, allows you to effortlessly achieve the perfect tone and features phase inversion and Garrett Null notch filter controls deliver warm, pristine sound even under the most challenging conditions. Furthermore, a built-in chromatic tuner provides fast and easy tuning, and includes battery access that is hidden beneath the control panel, maintaining a clean, classy look that doesn't take away from the overall design.
As well as featuring the perfect combination of tonewoods, the MDA70CE is also equipped with a forward shifted X brace design which involves both X braces and asymmetric tone bars been scalloped. This inventive bracing allows for a thinner graduated top, allowing the soundboard to move more freely, providing warmth, clarity, and balance with dynamic midrange.
