Semi-hollow body construction With its maximized hollow space, Spruce top and Mahogany back and sides, the 55 mm-thick semi-hollow body delivers a rich acoustic tone.
AeroSilk Piezo pickup: The custom bridge contains the magic of the AeroSilk Piezo system, which works with D'Addario ECB81 flat wound strings to provide that sense of "air" that characterizes upright sound.
Forearm contour: The specially designed forearm contour on the body top offers playing comfort and adds an elegant accent to its appearance.
5pc Jatoba/Walnut neck/contoured neck heel: A Panga Panga fretboard with offset position markers, caps a 5pc Jatoba/Walnut neck with a contoured neck heel that creates a deep neck joint with unfettered access to the upper frets.Coupling Jatoba with Walnut yields a neck that is strong and stable despite its thinness.
Panga Panga fretboard: Panga Panga features a beautiful wood grain which produces a tight low and mid range with a sharp attack on high end.
