Featuring an arm bevel-cut on the body top and an arched Myrtlewood back with Myrtlewood sides which provide a strong fundamental tone with excellent projection and sustain. The Myrtlewood sound can be considered an ideal mix of Mahogany, Rosewood and Maple that is clear and bright without coloration. The GA-MY Bevel also features an LR Baggs pickup and preamp system for a natural high-quality plugged-in sound for live performances.
It can be said that Sitka Spruce is the most common and traditional tone wood used for tops on acoustic guitars due to its rigidity and superb strength-to-weight ratio. This characteristic provides very dynamic sensitivity as well as a sound that is rich in harmonic overtones and allows the top to handle powerful strumming as well as delicate fingerpicking.
Oregon Myrtle, also known as California Bay Laurel or Pepperwood, ranges in color from blonde-yellow to taupe and makes very nice guitars. No two sets look alike, thus each guitar built is an original! Tonally it is similar to Maple, clear and bright with nice projection, but it is much easier to bend than Maple.
Known for its natural sound, the L.R. Baggs system is elegantly simple with only Volume and Tone controls. The guitar’s solid top and back’s acoustic resonance is fully picked up by the preamp and conveyed in a totally transparent manner to an amplifier or the PA system.
