Overview

  • Acoustic Guitar

  • Range

Like an unexpected splash of fresh mountain air, our Range guitars offer refreshing surprises. The first is the way we describe the Range. We call it a Mini-Jumbo. “Well, that is a dichotomy,” I hear you say. Let me explain. We took our Jumbo body shape and minied it. “Well, ‘Minied’ isn’t even a word,” I hear you whisper under your breath. Sure, it is. I just used it. We also added a rounded back to this little guy. What happens when you take a minied jumbo and add a rounded back? BOOM. Incredible tone and larger than appearances sound projection. Keep in mind that this guitar has a rarefied, solid African mahogany top. That is going to give you a very distinct sound and a very pleasant tonal range. If you were in the market for a ¾ guitar that sounded like a full size guitar, then you can consider yourself removed from said market because you just met the Range.

TOP WOOD

African Mahogany
African Mahogany

African Mahogany is a harder wood than spruce or cedar. Harder woods will have a break-in period where they are brighter when you first get the guitar and, as they are played, they mellow out and you'll notice more of the deeper tones. Volume levels seem to be on par with spruce tops but with less attack.

BODY SHAPE

Auditorium
Auditorium

The auditorium body shape is probably the newest body shape for acoustic guitars. The auditorium takes elements that players love from various other shapes and combines them into a single body. The sound will be slightly different than a dreadnought and will scoop some of the mid range but it maintains the full dreadnought sound. It has a skinnier waist, much like a grand concert. This allows the guitar to rest lower on a player's thigh when sitting down and does not put as much strain on the shoulder. It's not hard to see why auditoriums have gained popularity so quickly.
