The solid American cedar veneer with forward-shifted X bracing used in front and the solid African mahogany veneer with ladder bracing used in back produce a sound which is rich in expressiveness in the midrange. In addition, the use of a Graphtec TUSQ nut and saddle gives this model the sparkling tone and beautiful sustain that are the hallmark of Maurice guitars. From delicate arpeggios to powerful strokes, this is an expressive guitar that can be used in any genre.

A beautiful diamond volute with a luxurious feel is applied to the back of the neck, not only for decorative purposes but also to ensure the neck's strength. It also controls the mass of the neck and provides a resonance effect.
Carefully selected high-quality rosewood is used for the fingerboard to achieve high quality in both playability and sound. Position marks are offset for distinctive design and visibility.
