Body

Comfortable playing

Comparing the size of the D-body, the narrow upper part makes it easier to play. The wide bottom is designed to create rich bass.

Craftsmanship

Natural woodworking

Vacuum pressing & natural wood drying combined technology gives you a more solid sound. After the glue penetrates the pores of the wood sufficiently, it is bonded by slowly applying pressure to increase vibration and durability.

※ Although heat-drying and hot-press methods expedite the building process, they cause the adhesives to harden, interfering with the wood’s natural resonant qualities.

Wood drying

Three stages of drying

The wood is dried by natural, thermal and high frequency vacuum drying. In the case of high-frequency vacuum drying, moisture is removed from the inside of the wood, so there is little splitting or distortion coming from drying.

※ Only carefully selected timber that is well dried and seasoned is used.

HEX Hive acoustic guitars' fretboard

Fretboard

Low tension, more sensitive

You can play easily even on high frets due to the body-neck joint on 14th fret, the cutaway body shape and the low string tension. On rosewood fingerboard, the 160Hv frets with 30% increased hardness deliver a durable and clear sound.

Rounded edges

Comfortable grip

Both sides of the fingerboard are gently curved for more comfortable playing. In addition, the rounded corners give you easier to play.

Headstock

Layered with bevel cut

The rosewood top affixed to the headstock contributes to the instrument’s aesthetic quality while helping to improve sustain, and in concert with the binding gives off a feeling of luxury. The 15:1 gear ratio die-cast head machines allow for precise tuning.

HEX acoustic guitars' rosewood bridge

Bridge

Traditional solid rosewood

A special cut is placed in front of the bridge-pin hole to prevent pins from protruding. It also reduces dents on the bridge by string tension. By the increased angle of strings to the saddle, it will be in tune though powerful strum.

Bridge plate

Vibrating structure

Just beneath the bridge on the underside of the sound board is a discreetly affixed honeycomb-shaped solid hard maple bridge plate. Because the hexagonal structure reduces weight while reinforcing the sturdiness of the instrument, it contributes to elongating the time of sustained vibration from the sound board. Additionally, this unique bridge plate assists in balancing the whole sound of the instrument, maintaining it’s tonal character.
