All solid wood! TransAcoustic Model LS-TA
Solid Engelmann spruce top with A.R.E. treatment
Solid rosewood back & sides
Amazing all solid wood guitar with built in reverb/chorus effects that are produced by an actuator that vibrates the back of the guitar. No external amp or pedals required.
Sort of like the ToneWoodAmp but built into the guitar. Not as versatile as a ToneWoodAmp but it is built in and easier to operate.
You have to play one to appreciated how dramatic the reverb/chorus sound coming straight out of the soundhole, no speaker involved, it takes the string vibrations from the under saddle pickup and transfers that signal to the actuator which just vibrates the back of the guitar like a speaker cone.
Search YouTube for TransAcoustic and you will find many videos where the players are amazed by the reverb/chorus.
You don't see many of these come up used because they are so unique.
