Sebastian Stenzel Shares The Photos of His Newest Guitar With an "Enhanced Wood" Cedar Top.

Coming Soon

German guitar maker, Sebastian Stenzel, has shared with us some sneak peek photos of his newest guitar. It's an absolute masterpiece pleasure to look at!

It's been over a year since we featured our last guitar from Sebastian and more than three years since we had our last guitar that features his original invention called "Enhanced Wood". Basically, it has a new type of laminated soundboard, providing an enhanced dynamic range and enhanced malleability of sound, made for players who want to push the limits of nuanced musical expression. Rather than typical double-tops which use two super-thin pieces of wood with either balsa or composition materials "sandwiched" in a middle, third layer, Sebastian's top is only two layers of wood that are fastened together with a system of grooves cut to precisely chosen areas of the grain to optimize the sonic qualities Sebastian is seeking. This includes greater dynamic range, both on the high and on the low end, greater ease in modulating sound colors, and a faster attack without being percussive. 

The materials used are spectacular! Sebastian used an "enhanced" cedar for the soundboard. The back and sides are made of quilted Canadian maple with a gorgeous texture looking like a lava lamp. It will be equipped with hand-engraved Alessi tuners with white Mother of Pearl pegs.
