The Showcase models are now available with the new electronic system by Audio Electric Research with internal sound-hole control. Shaped for maximum dynamic range and audio performance, to capture the true sound of the guitar, the AER features an internal microphone and under saddle transducer. Blending the two is made possible by using the very accessible volume controls, found cleverly peaking out of the sound-hole on the low E side. Quick adjustments made easy in live situations.
The particular model pictured here is the S&P Showcase Mahogany AER. This wonder of Canadian craftsmanship, as with all Showcase guitars, features a solid spruce, compound curve top, whose optimal response is achieved and supported by scalloped, extra light, Adirondack spruce bracing. A genuine lacquer high gloss finish, allows the top not only to be protected but also to breathe and vibrate freely. This promotes the ever important aging process, in which your guitar will sound better the more it is played over time. Other features include, solid mahogany back & sides, a double function truss rod which is housed inside the very comfortable mahogany neck with rosewood fingerboard and finished off with Tusq® top nut and fully compensated saddle. This guitar beautifully combines both the warmth of the mahogany back and the brighter tones of the spruce top to further expand the acoustic palette of its player.
All S&P Showcase guitars come with the innovative and rugged Deluxe TRIC case (Thermally Regulated Instrument Case) to protect your instrument from the elements, as well as any unforeseen baggage claim warriors.
