The new addition of Fishman® EQ and Pickups on E200F ATV and L200F ATV models is the finishing touch to the already near-perfect guitar. Torrefied Solid Sitka Spruce top and Rosewood sides & back, Ebony fretboard and bridge, and now the world-famous Fishman EQ and pickups are all carefully built together to produce outstanding tones at a very reasonable price.
Vintage OM Body
The L200F ATV features a classic OM body style. This body style initially developed in the 1920s captures the pre-war era tone that is often sought after. Sonically it delivers a sound that is larger than its compact size would hint at and with a level of dynamic responsiveness that is a joy to play.
Aged to Vintage Top
A vintage instrument is the holy grail of acoustic guitar tone. The wood on the top cures and opens up more over time. This unleashes a tonal quality that is missing in new instruments — until now. Using a special process that we call ATV (Aged To Vintage) we treat the solid Sitka spruce top to give it that big and open tone of a decades-old, highly-sought-after acoustic. This torrefaction process delivers that amazing tone to you right out of the box.
Rosewood Back & Sides
Rich and deep, warm yet punchy with an ideal sprinkling of sweet presence, rosewood imparts a big low-end with plenty of power and volume for use in any musical style.
Installed internally without cutting out any of the woods, the Sonitone EQ system retains all the natural resonance and the pure acoustic sound that other systems can’t. The controls are simple to use as well with only Volume and Tone.
Grover® Vintage Tuners
A vintage-style look and tuning stability complement the overall classic look of this model. With an 18:1 tuning ratio, these tuners ensure precise tuning adjustments with smoothness and the highest quality functionality.
Ebony Bridge & Bridge Pins
The high density of Ebony wood keeps the fundamental acoustic sound focused and tight with greater sonic projection than plastic, enhancing the transfer of the string vibrations throughout the soundboard top, body, and neck.
There are many types of woods that are used for fingerboard but no other compares to the jet-black beauty and slick smoothness of Ebony.
