This TW70-VS is an Orchestra sized guitar, making it a perfect choice as your “do all” axe. Orchestra guitars, also known as “Mini Jumbos”, have increased in popularity due to their ability to perform in many genres of music with equal ease. This guitar is built with 100% solid tonewoods...no laminated wood here! It starts out with a straight and tightly grained solid spruce top. The back and sides are mahogany, long chosen for its authoritative bass and strong mid-range projection. With the spruce's clarity and sparkle, the combination produces a guitar that is balanced and precise in all registers.

In a nod to more modern tastes, the mahogany neck has a very soft “C” profile. It has an inviting, comfortable shape and its stain finish feels great in the player's hand. Notice too the lack of a scarf joint where the neck meets the headstock...almost unheard of these days. There is also a traditional diamond volute, adding strength to this important and vulnerable area. The rosewood fretboard is correctly dark and tastefully adorned with small dot inlays. A gloss Vintage Sunburst finish, gold hardware, a triple rosette, and multi-ply bindings complete this guitar's presentation.

The stylishly shaped rosewood bridge is home to a fully compensated bone saddle. That's right...bone. You won't find a plastic saddle or nut on this guitar! The vintage style gold “Butterbean” work smoothly, surely and precisely, so you can really “dig in” and pitch will hold true. Because this is an Orchestra guitar, the action is optimized for a balance between fingerpicking and flatpicking and free of any fretting out or buzzing.
