The AWFS300CE features a specially-designed Dreadnought body shape, 7mm shallower than a regular Artwood Dreadnought instrument, providing a more articulate tone to suit the Fingerstyle strumming style. The solid Engelmann Spruce top and Okoume back and sides provide a responsive playing feel and a warm, sensitive tone. 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 AWFS300CE 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 gives 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.
