Smaller scale instruments have increased in popularity over the past few years, because not only do students seem to be starting younger than ever, but also the easy-to-transport guitar has become recognized as an excellent companion for the weary traveler. From the on-the-go businessperson who needs a guitar that can fit in a plane's overhead compartment, to the happy wanderer just looking to animate his sojourn with a song, the compact travel guitar can be an uplifting addition to any expedition.
The EWP14OPN is a 1/3-size, steel string Piccolo acoustic guitar. Similar in scale to a Baritone ukulele (17"), the EWP14 sports an EW style cutaway body. The top, back, and sides are made of Ovangkol, a wood found in Western Africa, known for its beautiful figuring and Rosewood-like tone. An open pore Natural finish allows the body to resonate more freely for improved tone and projection. Other features include an Abalone rosette, Rosewood fretboard, & bridge and chrome die-cast tuners.
To optimize string tension, intonation, and tone, the EWP14 is tuned in the key of A (A, D, G, C, E, A), up a fourth from standard tuning.
