Depth and sparkle
...the two most important things needed for a beautifully balanced sound. The timeless combination of spruce and mahogany allows for such a magical feat, giving you exceptional versatility across the whole frequency range. Solid Sitka spruce makes for the ultimate soundboard, and luckily, as it's been used for the body top, you can experience its tonal beauty in all its glory. Expect spectacular dynamics and sensationally crisp articulation. Even when you're strumming with immense volume, there'll be glistening clarity carrying every single note.
But sometimes, it's not enough to just have a crystal-clear tone. It's got to have depth too. That's where mahogany comes in. Used for the back and sides, this resonant tonewood oozes warmth and richness with each chord. And it has the ability to emphasise midrange frequencies in a way that accommodates various styles and techniques, whilst its punchy sonic qualities promise to pierce through the mix.
Grand and commanding
The grand OM-14 fret body is similar in size to grand auditorium guitars, producing a full-low end, emphasised mids, and sparkling trebles. Its versatility makes the GMC-STE able to handle both lighter fingerpicking styles and meaty strumming patterns, perfect for ambitious guitarists who don’t want to be limited. And that's not all. Such an exquisitely crafted body also demonstrates that you can have a comfortable playing experience whether you're seated or standing - the elegant shape with nipped in waist and Venetian cutaway makes it possible.
Shape your tone
Whether you're playing to an awestruck audience, recording your next album, or just jamming at home, it's nice to give your tone a bit of gusto from time to time. With Fishman Isys+ electronics, you can do just that. Plug in, amp up, and use the preamp to carefully sculpt and finetune your sound until it is unmistakeably you. There are rotary controls for volume, bass, and treble, whilst a phase button reduces any undesirable feedback, granting you a crystal-clear tone that truly sings. Even better, a built-in tuner is included too, so you can ensure every string is pitch perfect.
