Essential Roots Series
The new Essential Roots Series guitars connect to Hohner's historical role in roots and blues music. Hohner teamed up with guitarists and session musicians of Hohner harmonica endorsees to develop an exceptional series of vintage inspired guitars.
The new series consists of 5 models that are Hohner's modern interpretation of legendary acoustic guitars. The Essential Roots S0 (M0) and S00 guitars are reminiscent of the smaller bodied guitars that contemporized the music of the 1920s and 30s. They combine natural and sunburst finishes, vintage body styles with building techniques and features of the current Essential Series. Hohner's focus was on authentic sound, modern playability and "no variance intonation". All models are equipped with NVI compensated nut and saddles.
All guitars of the series feature a micro-thin satin finish. The pick guards were left off in order to encourage the vibration of the tops. The result is guitars that are exceptionally resonant, producing a rich, singing tone that makes the small body models sound huge.
The "0" guitars have an authentic short scale (613mm), a 12th fret neck joint and are available with solid mahogany or solid sitka spruce tops. The "00" has a solid sitka top, sunburst finish and an original 632mm scale length (optional cutaway and Fishman ION+ preamp). The series is rounded off with the MD, a full scale dreadnought with a solid mahogany top. Hohner dedicates the series to any guitarist who bases his style on roots music.
