The classic dreadnought combination is spruce over rosewood, a pairing famed for its deep bass, scooped mids and bright trebles. The Artista Concerto Natural Shadow CE bends tradition, making for an even more distinctive large format guitar. Its Oregon myrtlewood back and sides boast that familiar rosewood thrum, as well as its blossom of overtones, but tempers it with a warmer middle and airy, strong trebles that balance every chord. This is what your guitar can be! Decorated, yet understated, with all Artista appointments, and the hypnotic swirl of solid native myrtle, the instrument stands out as the apex of the Organic Collection.
