The Brilliant Ben Woods
The founder of Flametal. Ben Woods has gained a decent sized following around the world for his skilful flamenco-style playing and founding of flametal. His signature guitar is a representation of his skill in this field, offering everything the modern flamenco player would ever want in a guitar. It is an instrument like no other, and sounds beautiful.
Perform with passion. A western red cedar top makes this guitar shine with vibrance whenever it is played. Often used by fingerpickers, it naturally emphasises and projects every note, and brings out tones and harmonics which are often more hidden with other woods. Walnut back and sides also help to round off the guitar's tone, offering a bit more brightness whilst having an outstanding, deep resonance which rings out. From flametal to flamenco, the tonewoods which make up this guitar will always bring out the best in each note you play. As such, they will give your music that expressive voicing which sings with fiery flamenco emotion.
Built for speed. Being able to handle both flamenco and metal styles, which are both often fast, the neck on the Flametal-Two plays as fast as you would expect. Constructed from mahogany and having a gloss finish, you'll be able to fly around the fingerboard with exceptional speed. The pau ferro fretboard is also more than capable of handling fast playing, whilst providing powerful sustain. As such, you'll have no trouble expressing your musical ideas on this instrument, and you'll be able to create some truly scintillating songs.
Music for the Masses
Made to be heard. Ben Woods' guitar sounds incredible amplified. It makes use of a Fishman/Ortega Clasica blend system in order to make the tone as natural and pristine as possible. If you're looking to play live shows, then you can be confident that your sound will be authentic and powerful, capable of sounding rich and full at both higher and lower volumes. The mini die cast tuners combined with an Ortega 12-hole bridge make for excellent tuning stability, and the flamenco double scratch plate will protect the body if you choose to use a pick. This is a truly legendary guitar which will emit a divine, dynamic, powerful sound which is full of passion and fire.
