Innovative design with outstanding tone and playability!
This quality-crafted dreadnought uses the icZ Acoustic System, including the lateral compression soundboard, a continually adjustable neck, and a torque-reducing split bridge. The icZ system produces pure tone, more projection, action adjustments that can be performed on-the-fly, and more adjustable intonation.
It also features a solid spruce soundboard, solid mahogany back and sides, rosewood bridge, rosewood fretboard, mahogany neck, black binding, 25-1/2" scale length, and sealed black tuners.
Lateral compression soundboard
Lateral compression is created by anchoring the strings directly to the guitar soundboard. This stored energy is released acoustically as the guitar is played. The increased strength inherent in the design allows more delicate internal soundboard bracing.
Continually adjustable neck
Allows quick, easy, on-the-fly adjustments of the string height without altering scale length or neck pitch. Turn the included key and go from high to extremely low action seamlessly without detuning!
Torque-reducing split bridge
A striking and innovative design allows for intonation adjustments throughout the life of the guitar, at any time. The bridge is secured to the soundboard through a unique fastener design, which can be easily repositioned. Rotational torque is dramatically reduced, minimizing soundboard warp. Bridge saddle height never needs to be altered and volume and tone remain permanently enhanced.

Easily the most well thought out Guitar I've ever owned. The spider-string feature allows the soundboard to really open up because of lighter bracing & vibration distribution thru the strings to the edges. It sounds a LOT like the $900 solid wood Martins! Adjustable bridge to set intonation: Priceless. Perfect neck contour/width. Every piece is crafted well w/quality materials everywhere. The adjustable neck is also great for setting string height, & because it's like an electric neck, fretboard drop-off/or a warp because the sound board has shifted, are things of the past. It's a very playable guitar w/a deep booming sound. My only complaint is that the adjustable neck changes the tone since it's not glued on wood-to-wood, but has the metal parts, or wood-to-metal-to-wood instead. It's a great axe tho...
Bottom line: this guitar sounds amazing. The problem is not too many dealers carry it so you can't hear it for yourself. Take me on my word...I'm a big Martin fan but this admittedly sounds better both plugged and unplugged. The look is unique and the features are great. My highest recommendation.
been playing for 40 years, and loved my Gibson J-60, but I've never seen or heard any acoustic quite like this. Perfect intonation. You set your own action. It booms on the low end and cries sweet tones on the high tones. This is the best bang for your buck and more!!! Don't wait!!!
