The AG75WCE is a great all round instrument for live work or recording with the fantastic LR Baggs StagePro EQ and Element pick up for optimal live performance. The Grand Auditorium GA body shape is the perfect sophisticated look. It has the same scale length as the dreadnoughts but a slightly smaller body with a narrower waist that accentuates the trebles.
Designed to get the best out if its components, for them to work together to produce balance, lively projection and great response. These components include the FST2 bracing system, bi-level rosewood bridge, real bone nut and saddle, great quality tone woods and thin finish.
The FST2 is a forward shifted X brace design, this means the axis of the X is closer to the sound hole and therefore creates a larger soundboard area allowing for more energy and vibration to be harnessed. Both the X braces and asymmetric tone bars are carefully scalloped. The scalloping design was the result of years of continual development in our Yairi workshops.
The Artist Series sound and personality is open and powerful. The FST2 also creates a very good balance so both the treble and bass registers are clearly present and balanced in relation to each other.
Along with a more angled headstock, the bi-level bridge increases string tension by making the break angle of the strings from the saddle to the top more acute. Improved string tension adds to our sound, feel and response, which are also heightened by the use of real bone nuts and saddles.

At PC Sound, we check out our instruments and provide a general setup before placing them out for sale to ensure the instrument is in the best possible condition. However, if you purchase this instrument to be shipped, sometimes a minor adjustment may be needed once it arrives to you due to changes in temperature, humidity, shipping, or individual preferences. If temperatures are very cold or hot, please allow your instrument to sit in the box or case for at least 24 hours to allow time for it to acclimate.
