The Sapele Neck on this specific guitar is very nicely figured adding a visual element that takes this guitar to the next level. The headplate is also nicely figured so this guitar looks like a much more expensive model. Each one of these has a one of a kind look thanks to this unique wood's appearance! This model includes SUSTAINABLE WOOD CERTIFIED parts. Richlite is a wood product that is very popular in the guitar building world these days. Especially with manufacturers who want to reduce their carbon footprint. This material looks and sounds very similar to ebony, in fact most people can't tell the difference. Sapele has a focused, Mahogany - like tone but is far more affordable. So we are starting to see it used in many more guitars these days as genuine mahogany is getting more expensive.
