The 2022 version is equipped with a pickup function, you can plug in speakers when needed, and you can use it as an electric guitar.
The neck and strings are designed with a small body, which is suitable for Asian hands, easy to play, and more suitable for playing.
The panel is made of Japanese Korean pine wood ( veneer solid wood , Top Solid),
Generally, guitars with a price of more than 3,000 yuan on the market are made of solid wood.
Veneer means that the wood comes from the same wood without adding any miscellaneous wood.
The wood of the panel determines the grade of the guitar, so whether the panel is veneer or plywood, there is a big difference in price.
The purpose of plywood is to reduce the consumption of high-quality wood, and it will be thinly cut and then added with cheap miscellaneous wood in the middle, so the cost is reduced.
The veneer panel is not blocked by miscellaneous wood and adhesives in terms of tone transmission or resonance.
It has unparalleled advantages over plywood.
And the most important point is that the veneer guitar will open with the playing, and resonate with the vibration for many years.
The moisture and air in the wood will be slowly forced out, and the sound will be more majestic and mellow.
Panel: Japanese Korean pine wood (Cedar)
Japanese red pine is a premium wood produced in Mie Prefecture, Japan, and is often used in premium classical guitars.
The timbre is warm and loud , the conduction speed is fast, and each sound is distinct. Many guitarists who play Fingerstyle prefer red pine guitars.
Another important point, the resinous aroma of Korean pine wood is used to deter squirrels and insects.
This kind of aroma not only adds a woody taste to the guitar, but also is more durable than other woods in the humid environment of Hong Kong.
Back and sides: Brazilian rosewood
In 2003, Brazil restricted the import and export of rosewood worldwide, and lifted the ban in 2018.
But the price has risen by 40%. It's hard to find a starter guitar made in Brazil in rosewood.
However, due to its high stability and hard wood, rosewood has not yet been replaced by other woods in its tone.
