The DY40CBKE is a slope shoulder full size dreadnaught from the acclaimed 40 series. This one is black as you may have noticed. Mahogany back and sides, spruce top, rosewood fingerboard and bridge. A warm tone, precise, efficient all rounder with exquisite aesthetics. The harmonics are less pronounced than with a rosewood guitar, and this makes for a great instrument to accompany vocals, for rhythm players, but with full response to play solo. Versatile and polyvalent, a good solid working guitar, with a gloss translucid black finish. Efficient amplification is assured by the very complete, tried and trusted 600T mark2 with all the controls onboard to allow efficient optimisation of your sound at your fingertips while gigging. This is a great versatile guitar, that will give pleasure and service to the working musician.
