There are many reasons to love African Mahogany: it is beautiful, it sounds great, and it is lightweight. The Modern Satin was created to celebrate the sound and beauty of this tonewood. New for 2015 the Modern Satin is available in a Black Satin finish. The thin layer of satin finish allow the neck and body to resonate freely, producing a wide variety of tones from warm articulate Jazz lines to tight aggressive Metal riffs. Modern Satin’s tone is always loud and clear.
Typically harvested from Central America and Africa, Mahogany is a classic tone wood commonly used to make both bodies and necks. Being fairly dense, Mahogany is a medium-to-heavy wood that is brown in colour with a red or orange hue. It has a mild grain pattern that looks great with many transparent finishes. Mahogany has pleasant highs, strong mids,and balanced lows which makes it a popular choice among rock players for its thick, focused tone that cuts well in a mix.
Being one of the most popular fingerboard woods for guitars, Indian Rosewood is usually sourced from either India or Bangladesh. It has a thick grain pattern with colours ranging from brown-black, purple, to red-brown. Indian Rosewood is particularly favored by blues and rock players for it's thick, sweet tone. It has an ideal balance of fat lows, warm mids and a sparkling high end presence.
Each Modern Satin Pro is equipped with our Modern Elliptical neck profile. Rolled edges and a straight 14" fingerboard radius offers an extremely comfortable shape.
The African Mahogany neck is finished in satin, which provides the smooth feel of natural wood as well as protection from moisture.
Every Modern Satin Pro includes medium stainless steel frets, which offer silky smooth bending and long-lasting playability. Utilizing the PLEK process on each instrument guarantees the best possible string action, ensures optimized playability, and eliminates intonation problems.
The Modern Satin Pro features a transparent satin finish, which displays the natural beauty of the African Mahogany. The thin layer of satin finish also allows the neck and body to resonate freely, producing warm, lively tones that project loud and clear. Our finishing process provides an unparalleled combination of protection, beauty, and tone. Great care is taken to ensure that the thinnest possible layers of finish are applied.
The Modern Pro is equipped with staggered locking tuners, which provide improved tuning stability and eliminate the need for a traditional string tree.
