A Solid Top With a Lively and Balanced Tone.
The AFH700WEOB is an elegant, cosmetically rich, full-bodied OM with a responsive and open sound. The high quality solid Sitka top helps produce a lively and wonderfully balanced tone making this guitar a versatile all rounder suitable for all styles of music, plus it is fitted with the SYS150 3-band EQ with notch filter and backlit digital tuner.
The Artist Series sound and personality is open and powerful, and the forward X bracing also creates very good balance so both the treble and bass registers are clearly present and balanced in relation to each other.
Along with a more angled headstock, the bi-level bridge increases string tension by making the break angle of the strings from the saddle to the top more acute. Improved string tension adds to the sound, feel, and response, which are also heightened by the use of real bone nuts and saddles. The Artist Series also demonstrates great finishing capabilities; the gloss models have a clear deep shine from a finish that is applied as thinly as possible, again to help optimize tone. The beautiful Obsidian Blue finish on the 700 is stunning. It's carefully crafted to produce a mirror deep shine, with a sophisticated and unique appearance.
