Following in the footsteps of their incredible Marcus Miller bass collaboration, Sire have teamed up with iconic fusion guitarist Larry Carlton to create their own line supreme acoustic guitars. The A3 is a breath of fresh air into the bloated mid-price acoustic market, boasting high class features you simply won't find among competitors.
The A3 is made using classic woods with a touch of Larry Carlton magic. The body consists of a laminated mahogany back and sides and a roasted solid spruce top, resulting in great warmth and all-encompassing sound projection. Roasting, otherwise known as baking, is a favoured Sire design method ensuring longevity and strong sound dispersion throughout the body as you play.
Sire always produce on the playability front. The luxurious “C” shape neck feels effortless to play, matched with the flat 16” rosewood fretboard and those glorious rolled edges. The A3 is also a stylistically modern acoustic, adorned with herringbone binding and bar inlays.
Dreadnought guitars posses loud acoustic properties and deliver in a full low-to-mid frequency range. They're perfect in larger band settings, but also pleasantly fill out a room when played solo. A great and popular all-rounder.
Plug the A3 acoustic into a mixer/PA system when you need to tap into higher volume levels. Thanks to the onboard SIB Acoustic EQ System, you're able to blend the inbuilt piezo under saddle pickup and condenser microphone together to recreate accurate acoustic tones.
