EL-SC (Essential Classic): This model is a full size 39" classical guitar that has been designed with the same characteristics of wood selection and finish as the other guitars of the line. The designers applied a very subtle rosette. The combination of sitka spruce and mahogany back and sides provides for crisp, strong, well equilibrated sound. This guitar just sounded superb and played well with Aquila strings, which is why these were chosen as the factory strings for the Essential Classic.
EL-SMJ-CE (Essential Mini-Jumbo Acoustic/Electric Cutaway):
The Essential Mini Jumbo was designed with the stage artist in mind. A shallower, smaller body reduces guitar feedback when playing through a PA, while the cutaway gives free access to the higher fret positions. The Fishman ION preamp system includes an equalizer and a self-muting tuner. Grover tuners and factory strings by D'Addario.
EL-SD (Essential Dreadnought):
No guitar line is complete without a traditional dreadnought model, the mothership of steel string guitars. Players go for the large dreadnought body when they look for strong volume and very pronounced bass. The Essential Dreadnought comes with the same "no frills" understatement as the rest of the series and is also factory strung with a D'Addario set.Decke aus massiver Fichte, Boden und Zarge aus Mahagoni, Nato-Hals und Griffbrett aus Palisander.
