9 String Acoustic Guitar

Sound sample of this guitar

This nine string guitar is a hybrid of archtop and flat-top designs. Feels and plays like a flat-top, but with a subtle jazz-box vibe.
Western red cedar top and claro walnut back and sides. The 5-piece neck has internal carbon fiber rods.
Brazilian rosewood bridge, koa rosette, headplate elements and pickguard. The bass notes sound like a string bass,
the highs sustain and carry a full, clear presence. Organic lustrous hard oil finish over unfilled grain. No
muffled voice from too much finish and filler. A vibrant tonal machine, as musical instruments are supposed to be.
