all solid wood . . .
The All Solid Wood Sundance Performance Pro X15 NS model is a bold, workhorse Dreadnought bodied guitar. The Dreadnought shape strikes the most even balance between volume, size and ease of playing. It features a hand selected premium AAA grade solid Spruce top, paired with genuine Solid Mahogany back and sides. An outstanding guitar for the professional player.
The spruce was hand selected by Michael Sanden as it has a tone that makes it a very good ‘all-rounder’. Spruce top guitars have a wonderful blooming tone, with bell-like trebles and basses that are low and full but tend more toward the mid range. Sweet, and smooth, but not outrageously bright, yet with enough warmth such that it doesn’t sound thin. You will get an incredible variety of tones and timbres from a spruce top guitar.
The solid mahogany used for the back and sides is a dense wood, with a dark finish, and close grain. The mahogany’s density can add great ‘punch’ and projection, adding warmth, but with definition, and a ‘woody’ character. The combination of spruce and mahogany is one of the most popular, because it offers a tone that is very balanced, but versatile, lending itself very well to most musical styles. Besides serving to form the enclosure of the soundbox, the back and sides of the guitar also act as a sympathetic resonator whose oscillations contribute greatly to the harmonic mix.
The Mahogany necks are constructed with a traditional dove tail join. Mahogany is used as it provides a good longitudinal strength. They are C-shaped in a smooth comfortable oval profile that works well for most playing styles.
The guitar is finished in an ultra-thin, natural, polyurethane satin finish, which gives it a sleek, high-class look and feel.
