528e

The burly all-mahogany Grand Orchestra is a dynamic powerhouse that responds well to lively strumming. A brawny bass and potent mids support a rich depth of tone, while clear treble notes add to the full-spectrum sound. Appointments include a black pickguard, grained ivoroid binding and rosette, and a Century fretboard inlay. This model comes equipped with stage-ready Expression System® 2 acoustic electronics.
