The HG26SCE-O is a Grand Auditorium acoustic guitar with cutaway for superior upper fret access. It features a solid Western Red Cedar top with Cathedral Peak Scalloped-X bracing for sublime tone that improves with age, Pau Ferro back and sides, a mahogany neck with an Ovangkol fingerboard and bridge, die-cast tuners with stylish ebonite buttons for quick, easy and accurate tuning, a Washburn tortoise pick guard and an abalone rosette.
The HG26SCE is built with a blend of a Cedar soundboard and Pau Ferro. Because it’s a bit smaller than a dreadnought, it’s more articulate and ideal for fingerstyle players. It is, however, both full and clear. Thanks to its built in Fisman Presys II 301T Tuner/Preamp, you’ll never need to carry around an extra tuner. The preamp features volume, bass and treble control for natural amplified acoustic tone, plus a phase switch to deal with feedback issues.
