Distinctive appointments include a flamed Hawaiian koa headplate with eye-catching headstock and fingerboard inlays. It's a practical guitar that looks and plays as good as it sounds, and it is offered in two configurations: either with Fishman's acclaimed onboard Ellipse Blend System that delivers superb live and recorded sound, or for the more traditional player, without the onboard electronics package."
