Solid Sitka Spruce Top & Mahogany Body
The Sigma DM12E+ features a solid sitka spruce top, producing a versatile sound that yields a crisp and articulate tone, as well as producing a broad dynamic range which is what gives sitka spruce such a versatile sonic-nature. In addition, its solid top also delivers focused, clear sound of deep lows, warm mid-range, and bright singing highs. Sitka's versatile nature enables it to accommodate many different genres and playing styles, from lighter fingerpicking styles, to heavier more aggressive strumming patterns. Its solid sitka spruce top is attached to mahogany back and sides, adding resonance and warmth to the guitar's sonic-character. The Sigma's mahogany back and sides also deliver a meaty mid-range, producing punchy, woody tones with plenty of depth and complexity that will please most playing styles. The classic tone produced is perfect for the Sigma's 12 string construction, as a guitarist can play their individual style whilst the 12 strings and mixture of tonewoods endlessly chime with sustain and resonance, producing a truly sonically pleasing tone well-suited to a wide range of techniques and playing styles.
D-14 Fret 12 String Body
With a D-14 fret body, part of the dreadnought family, players are certain to benefit from its rich, full-bodied, and commanding voice. The DM12E+'s D-14 fret body offers superb volume and projection whilst maintaining overall tonal balance, perfect for a wide range of genres. Its big body blended with its solid sitka spruce top and mahogany construction gives the DM12E+ a powerful response with plenty of resonance and sustain. The tone produced is able to accommodate numerous genres and playing styles with ease, from rock, pop, indie, folk and country. The sheer volume the DM12E+ can project makes it perfect for projecting the stunning nuances a string 12 holds. Furthermore, the big and bold dreadnought body offers a comfortable playing experience, although it is better-suited to players more comfortable with bigger-bodied guitars, and those with a longer reach.
Built-In Sigma Preamp & Tuner
Equipped with a Sigma preamp system, the DM12E+ will feel right at home on stage or in the studio, perfect for the gigging guitarist. The built-in Sigma preamp features slide controls for bass, middle, and treble with a rotary control for volume, enabling players to add a little extra sonic-character to their amplified tone. Furthermore, the preamp also has a built-in tuner, providing quick, precise and easy tuning on the go, whether performing acoustically or amplified.
Mahogany Neck & Micarta Fingerboard
Constructed from mahogany, the Sigma's neck delivers a resonant rich warmth that responds superbly to many different playing styles with equal ease. Additionally, the neck has a low profile shape for added comfort and a better grip in each position up and down the neck. Furthermore, the neck is topped with a micarta fingerboard which offers a smooth playing experience whilst adding sonically pleasing tones to the guitar's overall sound.
Real Bone Nut
The DM12E+ features a real bone nut, which offers excellent resonance and sustain, along with an authentic appearance. A bone nut also delivers a very balanced tone, and will last a long time. In addition, this type of nut naturally self lubricates and helps you stay in tune for longer.
