Body inside

Woofer Line

The Woofer Line along the inside edge of the top wood helps to further deepen the central area around the groove. It is the similar effect as woofer loudspeakers, which makes the presence of bass sound one step clear.

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.

Neck

Diamond shape volute

The diamond shape volute on the back of its neck, used in traditional classical guitars, not only gives you aesthetic effects, but also increases sustain and improves durability.

Neck

Increased sustainability

The neck of Indonesian mahogany wood is a non-scarf type and guarantees long sustain. Standard-C type profile with high preference is applied. It has a matte finish for convenience of performance.

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.

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.
