Solid Sitka Spruce & Mahogany Construction
The Sigma GME features a solid sitka spruce top, producing a versatile sound that yields crisp and articulate tones, as well as producing a broad dynamic range. 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 deliver a meaty mid-range, producing punchy, woody tones with plenty of depth and complexity that will please most playing styles.
Grand OM-14 Fret Body
The Sigma GME features a grand OM-14 fret body, which is similar in size and proportion to grand auditorium guitars, providing a versatile instrument, well suited to a wide range of genres and playing styles. With a grand OM-14 fret body combined with its mixture of tonewoods, the Sigma GME produces a full low-end, emphasis within the mid-range, and sparkling within the trebles. Its versatility makes the GME able to handle both lighter fingerpicking styles to meatier strumming patterns with ease, perfect for adding a range of dynamics to a player's individual musical style. Furthermore, the grand OM body also offers a comfortable playing experience due to its curvaceous shape and nipped in waist, providing comfort throughout both seated and standing performances.
Built-In Sigma Preamp & Tuner
Equipped with a Sigma preamp system, the GME 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 GME 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.
