Elegante S24S

Color: Gloss Natural


The Bella Tono Elegante S24S has everything an acoustic guitar player could ask for and then some. It features a Solid Spruce top and jaw-droppingly gorgeous Pau Ferro back & sides pairing. The soundboard is adorned with stunning abalone for both the rosette and purfling which is further accented with a rich Padauk highlight and Ebony binding. The Ebony fingerboard continues with the lush abalone appointments; depicting an inlaid scene of mountains and birds in flight. The Washburn Studio body design makes for an incredibly comfortable playing experience while managing to maintain the tight lows, focused mids and clear highs commonly associated with larger body sizes. The solid Spruce top helps define sonic nuances throughout the entire register of the instrument. Its full 25.5″ scale length extends an undeniable familiarity to the player and the satin finished, modern “C” profile of the Mahogany neck is smooth and cozy feeling in the hands.
