The Ecliptic model is a refined design from years of planning and experimentation. The unique bracing and body shape create an ideal fingerstyle guitar with enough punch to handle moderate picking. The Ecliptic is a big guitar considering the smaller body. Your wood choices will further define the overall voice.
The goal is to seek the optimal response from each piece of tone wood. During construction, all tops are individually voiced and tap-tuned. We are looking for the best possible balance of tone and potential power. Every integral piece, including braces, are selected based on consonant tonal characteristics and tap tones, pairing all components within each guitar. Hot hide glue is used exclusively for all bracing and the bridge joint. Standard woods and exotic upgrades are available. Customizable specs and options are available.
