The S&P Trek Spruce Parlour Acoustic Guitar features a solid spruce top which not only offers a pleasing aesthetic, but produces a broad dynamic range, a bright tonal character and great projection. Spruce is a hugely popular wood, recognisable by its pale colour and understated figuring. This stunning spruce top offers a sweet and smooth tone without being overly bright, yet keeping enough warmth so that it prevents the tone becoming thin. Spruce is widely used for guitar tops and is appreciated by many because it produces a versatile tonality which can accommodate numerous different genres with ease. The spruce top is contrasted beautifully by the wild cherry laminate back and sides, offering similar tonal properties that fall between the mellow tone of mahogany, and the bright sound of maple. Overall this guitar delivers a rich blend of quality tonewoods that shine through with each chord, note or strum.
Parlour Body Shape
The S&P Trek Spruce features a parlour body shape, which was originally designed to be small enough to be played sat down. Parlour shaped guitars are ideal for those players who favour more low-key, less brash musical styles similar to folk. The sleek, slim body and sloped shoulders provide a comfortable playing experience, making it easy to play for longer periods of time. The S&P Trek Spruce Parlour is lightweight and ideal for the gigging guitarist as it’s small and easily portable.
Silver Leaf Maple Neck & Rosewood Fingerboard
The silver leaf maple neck’s tone falls into the same category as mahogany, offering durability, rich warmth, brilliant mid-range punch and great playability. The silver leaf maple neck is topped with a rosewood fingerboard that delivers a warm, bright tone that shines through when utilising finger picking techniques.
