Artist Delta2EQ Solid Wood OM Style Acoustic Guitar with EQ
It is with great excitement that we introduce one of the high-end version of our acoustic guitar range - the appropriately named Delta2EQ. This guitar offers big-time quality at a very decent price not only as a seriously great blues box but also as that brilliant allrounder that will earn kudos in any playing situation no matter what the requirement may be.
Built of solid timbers throughout beginning with a closely grained solid Sitka spruce top which is complemented by beautifully figured solid African Yellow Sandal back and sides this guitar is definitely a class above. Ebony has been the timber of choice for both fretboard and bridge which not only looks good but feels great under the fingers. To top this off is the use of a lovely walnut laminate on the headstock and gorgeous looking Cocobolo purfling around the top and the back. A bone nut and compensated bone saddle and nicely geared open-backed vintage machine heads only add to this impressive instrument.
The attention to detail on the Delta2 is ultimately confirmed by the guitars' internal structure which sees scalloped 'X' bracing employed allowing the top to 'move' in natural synergy with a player's attack.
While the Delta2 retains many of the traditional characteristics of Artist's popular 'OM' series it should not be confused with these great instruments. This guitar is a very different beast. It lies somewhere between an 'OM' and the more bluesy 'OOO' guitars but the Delta1 has a noticeably deeper body than either of these two guitars measuring 4 inches at the upper bout and 4x9/16 inches at the lower bout. This deeper body profile allows for the guitar's sonic characteristics to really shine through.
Even when this guitar is electrified there has been greater attention to detail applied with the nicely compact 'Fishman Ink' preamp system being utilised. The preamp employs a very small footprint on the guitar's side while the 9-volt battery is housed in a similarly small separate compartment near the tail strap button- a very efficient and complementary unit.
This is a truly great guitar - the best yet in the Artist Guitars acoustic range and at a bargain price when you consider the level of quality on offer. Why not check it out?
