The Trad 2 Performer Grand Auditorium integrates the latest and best features to come out of our custom shop. 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. 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.
