The Ecliptic model is a small-body acoustic with exceptional drive and tonal range. Slightly smaller than an OM, this instrument is a refined design from years of planning and experimentation. Our unique compounded internal bracing with this body shape make for an ideal fingerstyle guitar with plenty of punch and clarity. Hot hide glue is used for all bracing and the bridge joint. Adirondack spruce is used for all structural braces, and Port Orford Cedar is used exclusively for the parabolic tone bars. For more information on the Ecliptic model, click here.
