A short scale guitar this good doesn’t come around too often. The DSME is equally suitable whether you’re at the start of your guitar journey, or a regular on the gigging circuit. For beginners especially, the shallower depth and reduced scale length ensures a comfortable and easily accessible playing experience which won’t alienate you from learning.
A large body has been crafted out of a mahogany back and sides and a sitka spruce top. These woods help to project a booming sound with excellent presence. Extra nuance and clarity are also available in buckets, characteristics that are closely linked to the use of spruce. No wonder its one of the most popular tonewoods used in the construction of current day acoustics!
The Sigma pickup included here helps to truly capture the voice and nuance of the instrument when amplified. Additional tonal controls – including treble, middle, and bass – then give you the option of tweaking your sound on-the-fly. There’s even an onboard tuner, so there’s absolutely no excuses for when you leave your tuner at home!
