Solid Spruce Top with Rosewood Body

The TSR 3 Master Design features a light-coloured, solid, spruce top that yields crisp articulation and delivers a broad dynamic range. Its versatile solid spruce top produces a sparkling high response and a tight, clear attack perfect for pronounced players. The TSR 3's stunning solid top is accompanied by solid rosewood back and sides which produce a full, warm, and resonant bass response with a dark tonality that is ideal for a wide range of genres and playing styles. Together, this stunning mixture of solid timbers produces an incredibly balanced and versatile palette of tones.

Mahogany Neck & Zero Fret Ebony Fingerboard

Constructed from mahogany, the TSR 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 TSR 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 TSR 3's fingerboard.

Jumbo Body

The TSR 3 features a jumbo body which provides a comfortable playing experience combined with superb projection and a deep and resonant bottom-end. Its nipped-in waist and curvaceous body allows players to sit with the TSR 3 comfortably on the knee, making it ideal for long sets and rehearsals. Traditionally, the jumbo shape is perfect for more meaty chord work, however the TSR 3's construction and mixture of tonewoods make its beautifully balanced across the tonal spectrum.

B-Band A1 Pickup

The TSR 2 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 TSR 2 Master Design is perfect for the performing musicians.
