The ACFS380BT-OPS features a baritone scale specially-designed Grand Concert body, which provides a deep low tone and a long sustain. The body is thicker than a regular Artwood Grand Concert instrument by 5mm at the neck joint to 9mm at the bridge end. The extra thickness provides a deep bottom end, yet retains a balanced tone. The solid Engelmann Spruce top and Pau Ferro back and sides provide a responsive playing feel and warm, sensitive tone along with an enormous frequency range that offers wave after wave of shimmering highs, tight mids and a full-bodied low end. The African Mahogany and Pau Ferro 5pc neck has enough durability for alternative and open tunings. The neck shape is also specially-designed and features a 45mm nut width, comfortable thin neck grip for easy fingering and a round neck heel that allows for easy access to the higher fret positions.
The ACFS380BT-OPS comes with both undersaddle and contact pickups on the neck joint block. This dual pickup system was developed to capture the string vibration through the whole body and neck, which provides a rich acoustic tone and a dynamic percussive sound from the body and neck. Dual Outputs (Mono Out / Stereo Out) allow the player to use the pickups individually or output a blend of the two. The Open pore semi-gloss finish offers a percussive resonance, perfect for creating ‘scratch’ style sound effects. The 18:1 ratio gear tuners and unbleached Oil-impregnated Bone nut and saddle offer solid tuning stability. Gigbag included.
