New 2021 Performer 2P G2 Dreadnaught Acoustic Guitar
Comfort and class, this guitar has it all plus a smooth sound. Our most popular guitar, it plays as fast as it looks. The 2P G2 (Performer) integrates the latest and best features to come out of our custom shop such as Skeletized Bracing, Double Reaction Bridge Top and Back X-Bracing, Neck Thru Adjustable neck, Truetonation system, Diffuser Disc, Free Floating Top, and Sideport. The top is a natural blend of Engelmann and Sitka Spruce called Lutz spruce from Canada’s Skeena Valley. This top has the power of Engelmann and the warmth of coastal Sitka. The back and sides are AAA Black Walnut. Fretboard is walnut with maple inlays. Below the fretboard is a luscious torrified flame maple neck. The torrification process closes the cells, turns the maple into a rich brown and makes it resonate like an aged piece of wood. The integrated tone ring on the top gives a relief cut around the entire perimeter allowing it to resonate freely. This guitar has a rich dark sound that blooms evenly. The dual comfort cuts on the top and back make this the most comfortable guitar to play.Video is 2P GA G2
Neck-thru Construction - The Patented Riversong Neck System
Our patented Neck-thru technology offers many benefits including strength, intonation, less bracing, easier playing due to the ability to make precise adjustments, variable top loading, an even balanced sustain tone, and volume up and down the neck (yes even on the body), eliminating the need of an expensive neck reset, slinky easy string tension, reduced heel, and the integrated strap pins are part of the structure of the guitar.
Riversong's unique patented Neck-thru design also has a truss rod that runs the full length of the neck. Most traditional guitars have a truss rod that ends at the 14th fret and continuing with an elongated screw head. Riversong necks have a full-length truss rod that adjusts the entire length closer to how an electric guitar is constructed.
The patented neck system has a small amount of flex (like a Strat) and this allows regular gauge strings to feel a lot less stiff further enforcing our electric-like feel.
Our Active Body System
Riversong’s innovation is the active body system. It works by moving the neck all the way through the body allowing two things happen:
- The structure shifts from neck joint to the end block
- The mass of the neck is now equal in and out of the guitar and it is free to vibrate like a tuning fork helping to ring up and down the neck and throughout the body. With the structure coming from the back of the guitar, the body and the neck has a little bit of flex (like a Strat vs a Les Paul) this flex gives the body the ability to freely vibrate and give the strings a really slinky feel (low tension)
D'Addario XT strings combine high carbon steel cores with an advanced corrosion resistance treatment, giving you enhanced break resistance, pitch stability, and long-lasting performance –– all while preserving the tone and feel of your favorite uncoated strings. These are strings made to stay, with uncompromising performance that never fades away.
