The new Earth200ATV was designed and developed with the acoustic strumming player while offering a balanced sound with its dreadnought body shape. Emphasizing sound quality above all else, the guitars features Torrefied Solid Sitka Spruce top, Pau Ferro back and sides, Ebony fingerboard and bridge, and genuine bone nut with a semi-gloss finish.
SOLID SITKA SPRUCE TOP
Spruce provides an ideal balance between strength and flexibility, hence its overwhelming popularity as the wood of choice for tops of acoustic guitars. Spruce’s versatile sonic character makes it ideal for a variety of musical genres and playing styles.
AGED TO VINTAGE TOP
A vintage instrument is the holy grail of acoustic guitar tone. The wood on the top cures and opens up more over time. This unleashes a tonal quality that is missing in new instruments — until now. Using a special process that we call ATV (Aged To Vintage) we treat the solid sitka spruce top to give it that big and open tone of a decades-old, highly-sought-after acoustic. This torrefaction process delivers that amazing tone to you right out of the box.
PAU FERRO BACK & SIDES
Pau Ferro, also known as Morado, Santos Rosewood or Bolivian Rosewood boasts many of the qualities that are highly regarded in tonewood that is close to Indian Rosewood. It's stable, abrasion resistant, hard, attractive, exotic and has good impression strength parallel to the grain.
SEMI GLOSS FINISH
The Earth200ATV’s semi-gloss finish exhibits the best qualities of both gloss and satin finishes, providing a luxurious look that also feels smooth to the touch.
GROVER® VINTAGE TUNERS
Vintage-style look and tuning stability complement the overall classic look of this model. With an 18:1 tuning ratio, these tuners ensure precise tuning adjustments with smoothness and the highest quality functionality.
EBONY BRIDGE & BRIDGEPINS
The high density of Ebony wood keeps the fundamental acoustic sound focused and tight with greater sonic projection than plastic, enhancing the transfer of the string vibrations throughout the soundboard top, body and the neck.
There are many types of woods that are used for fingerboard but no other compares to the jet-black beauty and slick smoothness of Ebony.
GENUINE BONE NUT AND SADDLE
Crafted out of water buffalo bone for the most natural and transparent transfer of string vibrational energy into the body and neck.
