The Parkwood PW320M Grand Auditorium Acoustic Guitar has a solid spruce top, and solid mahogany back and sides. Braces are hand scalloped and cosmetic appointments are elegant. The PM320M is finished in an ultra thin "open pore" finish that lets the sound come through loud and clear.
Whether you've been playing for years, or are looking to upgrade to your first high quality guitar, Parkwood is your only choice for solid woods, expert build, exceptional playability and real tone at an extraordinary price.
Also known as OM (Orchestra) with its slimmer waist and smaller overall body shape.This style has a clear and flexible tone. The smaller body is reminiscent of guitars used by many of the classic blues players.
OPEN PORE FINISH
This finish is applied in several layers that allow the open pores of the wood to be felt and to also allow the wood to breathe and vibrate at its best. You can actually feel the wood grain, like it was a raw unfinished piece of wood. The tone of an open pore finish is loud, alive and natural.
TOP - Sitka Spruce (Picea sitchensis)
Sitka Spruce comes from the Pacific northwest and today is the most commonly used wood for guitar tops. Sitka is a bit stronger and stiffer than other spruces. Its strength and toughness make it well suited for steel string guitars.
BACK & SIDES - Mahogany (Khaya ivorensis)
Mahogany is softer and lighter than Rosewood. Generally, Mahogany is warmer and has more low end, providing a strong, thumping bass with an emphasis on clear, bright, airy, trebles. It's also used for bracing, binding, end blocks, heel blocks and necks
