The combination of Mahogany and Cedar makes for a very warm sounding guitar, well suited to softer musical styles. The Folk model provides an excellent mid-range response as well due to its smaller & more narrow body size which is ideal for fingerstyle players. This guitar features a Custom Polished finish that produces a luster that falls between semi-gloss and high-gloss. The finish is not only gorgeous to look at but is exceptionally responsive. This model includes L.R. Baggs Element electronics.
