Dynamic and Versatile
The Hartwood Villanelle Grand Auditorium Acoustic Guitar is an instrument suitable for a range of styles and techniques. The solid spruce top opens up to create a large sound, making it ideal for Big open chords. With a slim waist design and solid spruce construction this guitar offers a complex tonality with a noticeably tight low end. The slight reduction in low end from the Hartwood Villanelle also makes for a studio friendly strumming sound.
Quality Mahogany and Solid Spruce Construction
Produced in Indonesia by master craftsmen, the Hartwood Villanelle range offers quality construction matched with carefully selected high grade materials. The solid spruce has been chosen to provide sound that emphasises the natural mid-range of an acoustic guitar, cutting through without sounding to sharp and transferring enough low end to sound full and powerful. The choice of solid spruce is also paired with mahogany back and sides to give you an instrument which is built to last and sounds great.
Mahogany Neck and American Black Walnut Fingerboard
Constructed from Mahogany, the Villanelle's neck offers a quick and dynamic response. Known for its reliability, this wood has been used on high grade guitar necks for years, making it a worthy addition to the Hartwood Villanelle. Furthermore, the neck is topped with an American black walnut fingerboard, adding a mellow, warm tone to the guitar's overall sound. The use of this sustainable wood provides a smooth and stable surface great for all playing styles.
Vintage Style Design
Ideal for seasoned players and beginners alike, this affordable and great sounding instrument has looks to match. Complimenting the vintage sound created by the solid spruce top, the subtle two stripe binding and simple black ring rosette make for a classic yet distinctive instrument. The eye-catching Hartwood headstock is combined with a vintage shaped scratchplate featuring the Hartwood logo to complete the look. The diecast chrome machine heads offer excellent tuning stability for an instrument suited to gigs and recording sessions.
