A reverse-strung setup produces a fuller, meatier sound that’s exceptionally pitch-friendly, while compact dimensions and electric guitar-inspired contouring elevate the playing comfort.
Builder’s Edition 652ce - Special Features
Smooth contouring softens the edge on the bass-side lower bout to enhance the comfort and support for your strumming or picking arm.
A shared anchor point for each string pairing creates a consistent break angle over the saddle and more tonal consistency. Together with V-Class bracing, the response is clean and clear with articulate lows.
Using next-level craftsmanship, we’ve chamfered the body and fretboard edges to give the guitar a more inviting feel for both picking and fretting.
Designed to minimize the sound of the player’s movement against the guitar body, our Silent Satin finish comes in handy for recording sessions. It also feels smooth to the touch and lends an appealing organic aesthetic quality to the body.
The 21:1 gear ratio of these premium tuning machines delivers ultra-precise tuning control, which means every note will be right on pitch—especially together with the intonation accuracy of V-Class bracing.
Our special roasting process brings out the hidden sweetness in a spruce top, producing tone reminiscent of an aged, played-in guitar.
The higher frets on the neck are more accessible than ever thanks to the ergonomic contouring of the cutaway, which includes a smooth bevel for fluid fretting.
