Body

Extended sustain

The Extra Folk body, which extends from the top 100mm from the top and 120mm from the bottom, provides a rich bass. It is a unique body form of the Hex guitar similar to a typical grand auditorium body.

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 Honey FX290C Hawaiian Koa body woods acoustic guitar's 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.

PlateSolid hard maple w/ honeycomb holes
PinBlack ABS w/ white dot

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.

Finish

Thin and light

Thin finished body will give you a more enriched sound. Electrostatic painting is sprayed thinly and evenly on the surface of the guitar, and the final gloss finish has been applied neatly by master builder's hand spray. The gloss finish gives a highly reflective, extravagant appearance. Additionally, it effectively protects against contaminants and is easily maintained.
