This Blackbird El Capitan Ekoa guitar is a beautiful sounding, worry free acoustic guitar.
The Ekoa construction is exceptionally durable, and temperature/humidity stable so you can take this Blackbird El Capitan anywhere. Tonally, this instrument is big and warm with a balanced low end, sparkling highs and a punchy mid range frequency that makes this the perfect guitar for any type of player. Blackbird was able to capture that vibrant, wood like tone that some alternate-material guitars infamously fail to replicate. Strummed, chords are clear and defined. Flat picked notes are crisp and pop off the guitar with high presence. Fingerpicked the guitar reacts extremely well to your touch. An impressive part of the El Capitan is that the attack on this instrument has great dynamic response, meaning whether you're playing gently or strumming hard this guitar is able to react accurately. Overtones and harmonics are extremely rich with this guitar. The neck is comfortably shaped with a bit of shoulder in the profile which allows you to have a sturdy handful without creating an obstacle.
