A rethinking of the traditional 018 (OM) cutaway shape known for fingerstyle, an EVOlution of the species. The reduced body thickness which also offers a comfortable "fit" when played, aims at a very responsive instrument. The use of 3 different wood aging steps combined with the open pore finish, make thise instrument extremely lightweight and resonant.
The sound is warm. The smoothness and deepness of the acoustical response of the cedar top is emphasized by the mahogany used for the back and sides. The width of the NUT has been increased to 45 mm, to better support fingerstyle lovers. For a smoother low frequency response the scale has been reduced to 630 mm/ 24.5" in order to lower the tension of the strings.
Fitted with the EKO by Fishman ISYS 301 preamp, capable to bring everything you want to the stage. The installed preamp system features volume, bass, middle, treble, phase control as well as an onboard easy to read tuner with Mute/Tune function.
The focus of the EVO 018 CW EQ is the close relationship between musician and instrument, with an Open Pore finish in order to leave intact the contact and feeling with the wood.
