Sigma are now firmly established in the guitar world, with a reputation for producing high-quality (and beautiful) instruments at a fraction of the cost of some of their competitors!
The S000M-15E+ is no exception to this, combining alluring vintage aesthetics with modern design appointments and playability!
Body & Neck
Mahogany is used for the back and sides; mahogany is known for being lightweight, resonant and having a pretty grain pattern, making it an excellent wood for acoustic building. Mahogany is also used on the top, which gives you a wonderfully organic appearance and a wholesome, warm tone!
The curves of this guitar have been carefully calculated with reference to the acoustics of old; this means an ergonomic playing experience without sacrificing tone. Combine this with the lightweight mahogany neck and the unusual micarta fingerboard, and you've got a beautifully organic cocktail of resonant tones at your disposal!
Hardware & Electronics
One of the key features of this guitar is the Fishman Presys+ preamp. Fishman are known for their expertise in the acoustic field, making pickups and preamps that produce incredibly convincing sounds.
The Presys+ is an all-encompassing electronics setup for an acoustic guitar. It manages to extract all of the pristine harmonic detail of an acoustic while offering excellent tonal tweaking controls (including 3-band EQ and a phase switch) and a built-in tuner. The hardware is understated with a distinctly vintage feel, perfectly complimenting the organic mahogany grain.
