Our big-bodied Grand Orchestra is a powerfully voiced guitar, yet also responds to a lighter touch, giving it tremendous dynamic range for players to explore. Chords ring out with boldness and extended sustain, and the bigger, deeper body is capable of a potent low-end push. The ample real estate of the body also means a bigger canvas to showcase the exotically striped West African ebony selected for the back and sides. Despite the larger lower bout, the hand-sculpted ebony armrest will make your strumming arm feel more relaxed to help you sound your best. Deluxe appointments include paua trim and an elegant Nouveau fretboard inlay. Gotoh tuners add a luxurious feel for smooth fine-tuning. Our onboard ES2 electronics promise to deliver a full tapestry of sound whenever you care to plug in.
