Careful wood selection and meticulous craftsmanship is critical when building a top-shelf parlor, and it really shows in the MPA70. All the articulation you'd expect from a traditional 12-fret parlor, plus a surprising amount of snort through the low-mids. This guitar really speaks with its own unique voice.
Masterworks guitars feature a one-piece mahogany neck with a 50/50 finish, premium tuners with ebony buttons, and 12th Fret abalone inlay. The Masterworks bracing system is forward shifted with scalloped, hand finished X braces that allow these guitars to project incredibly well. There's lots of sustain and dynamic response. Either strummed or picked, the separation and balance across the strings is unprecedented in this price range.
