The BR-43A Brings the old time sound back with
genuine Adirondack Spruce
With this traditional 000 sized guitar.
But perhaps most remarkable is how they do this so well, and keep these great guitars so affordable.
American guitar makers of the 1930s and 1940s often preferred to use one of the best tonewoods available at the time, a very special light wood that is different from any other; Adirondack Spruce.
Availability of this wood declined and the supply was not enough to continue to use it for many decades. Tress were planted, but they take time to mature. So more commonly in the later period Sitka spruce was used. And Sitka is a fine wood in its own right. Millions of exceptional guitars have it. But the long lost, unmistakable sound of Adirondack is now back, and in an affordable guitar!
All around guitar: Many players take advantage of this 000 guitar for being the right size for fingerstyle, flat picking or strumming. This is a great all-around guitar for anybody’s playing style.
The quality of the BR-43A is not hype. Evidenced by its important features, like the solid Adirondack spruce top, hand-carved braces, mahogany back and sides, and it has a traditional dovetail neck joint. This is unusual, because it is typically found only on more expensive instruments. In addition, it has a modern look with some beautiful pearl inlay work on the headstock. This traditional type of guitar, known as a 000-size also has a slim mahogany neck making it easy to play. The neck is very important as it must fit the hand properly.
