  • Highlights

    Scalloped Bracing
    Scalloped Bracing

    Scalloped bracing is thinner than more conventional bracing. That means that the bracing pattern inside the guitar uses less wood, which means that soundboard mass is reduced. This lets the top resonate more freely, resulting in better tone with more nuance and greater projection.

    Graph Tech Nut and Bridge Saddle
    Graph Tech Nut and Bridge Saddle

    Graph Tech string nuts and bridge saddles enhance the sustain, clarity and tonal consistency of an acoustic instrument. Neither too soft nor too brittle, they eliminate troublesome string binding, and they deliver performance, workability and appearance that easily outdo other plastics and come remarkably close to real bone.

    Maple Strat® neck with "C" profile
