Wendler Releases Nylon String electroCoustic Model
April 19, 2005
The body wood is carved from a solid piece of Western Red Cedar, both front and back. While the guitar has the appearance of a "standard" thickness solid body guitar, it's actually only 5/8" thick under the bridge. This allows for a lively acoustic response that is reflected through the pickup system according to the company.
The pickup system uses a coaxial polymer piezo cable, normally used in the security business for perimeter alarms. This material is extremely sensitive to player input, allowing both a wide tonal pallette and dynamic range, while providing accurate frequency response say Wendler.
Strings are tied off to a jazz guitar style cocobolo tailpiece and rest on a "floating" bridge. Customers have a choice of fretwire size, nut width, scale length, and fretboard radius at no extra charge.
