The TSM 3 Master Design combines a perfect choice of tonewoods to achieve both a sonically pleasing tonality and a visually stunning instrument. Its solid spruce top offers an idyllic soundboard and generates versatility, crisp articulation, and a broad dynamic range. With the TSM 3's solid spruce top being so tonally versatile, players are able to move from light fingerpicking to heavier strumming, offering a sound that is able to accommodate numerous playing techniques and genres with ease. Its brightly toned solid top is accompanied by solid mahogany back and sides, producing a rich, resonant warmth that blends beautifully with the tone produced from its solid top. As back and side panels, the mahogany delivers a meaty mid-range, producing punchy, woody tones with plenty of depth and complexity that will please most playing styles.
Constructed from mahogany, the TSM 3's neck offers players a resonant soft warmth that responds greatly to numerous styles of play, genres and techniques, making it perfect for those with a more alternative playing style. With its superb response, the mahogany neck enables players to achieve a pure, full sound with the ability to clearly hear each chord strummed, and each note picked. In addition, the TSM 3 features a twin piece neck which offers more resistance against warping, providing stability and durability. The neck is topped with a zero fret ebony fingerboard that adds a bright attack and superb sustain to the overall tone. Its zero fret fingerboard offers precise intonation by placing a fret at the headstock end of the neck, enabling the strings to sit the correct distance above other frets on the TSM 3's fingerboard.
The TSM 3 Master Design features a jumbo body, offering superb volume and projection. This big, curvaceous shape is favoured among alternative indie-rock artists, as the jumbo's voice is able to sit superbly within a live mix. In addition, the TSM 3's jumbo body produces a deep bass response, and is ideal for rhythm players. For acoustic settings, the TSM 3 will sit beautifully along side a vocal accompaniment, and its stand alone acoustic voice just isn't comparable to smaller bodied guitars. Although the TSM 3 features a big jumbo sized body, it offers a comfortable playing experience due to its curvaceous shape and nipped in waist.
The TSM 3 comes equipped with the B-Band A1 pickup system, offering basic sound tweaking for live and rehearsal environments. The sophisticated system is situated within the soundhole and features sleek and subtle soundhole controls for a pure and clear sound. In addition, with its built-in electronics, the TSM 3 Master Design is perfect for the performing musicians.
