Overview

  • Acoustic Guitar

  • Dreadnought

Like the stunning rebirth of a forest after a devastating wild fire, this guitar was designed and manufactured right after a large fire at our Chinese factory. It was not coincidence that we chose flame maple as one of our new models after that event. Just like the forest after a fire, we were able to start growing again with renewed energy and vigor. The back and side of every guitar is a work of art created by mother nature herself. Pairing a solid sitka spruce top with the flame maple on a dreadnaught body produces a very tight sound that is focused and layered with rich overtones.

TOP WOOD

Sitka Spruce
Sitka Spruce

Sitka Spruce is the most well-rounded tone wood and is used on more guitar tops than any other wood. This is due to the tonal qualities and sonic projection of spruce. It has a nice even tone and does not accentuate any frequency above another in an overpowering way. Spruce also has a strong attack and does not get muddy at high volumes. This makes it a very versatile wood and makes those players with soft touches sound great and people playing with other instruments cut through the mix.

BODY SHAPE

Dreadnought
Dreadnought

The dreadnought body shape has been the most popular shape for decades now for a number of reasons. First, it has a nice balance between low, mid and high frequencies. Where some body shapes scoop the mid range, a dreadnought will bring the mid range up. This is important when playing with a group of instruments. The mid range of a guitar will stand out. Because of the tonal balance of a dreadnought, the sound does not get muddy and will be very articulate even when a player is a more aggressive picker.

I stopped in to La Grande Stereo and saw mine on a stand. I picked it up and the full sound and sustain were awesome! I also have Martins and a Taylor, as well as others. This is the finest I have ever heard and played, at least to my ears. Job well done! La Grande Stereo did a great job with set up too.

Visited LaGrande Stereo, LaGrande Oregon. The STS130FMNT caught my eyes when Mike showed me the guitar. One word – beautiful! Great sound. Fit and finish also great. Well done. By the way, I bought it.
