Indian rosewood is one of the most popular and musically expressive tonewoods in the world. Among ’s solid-wood guitars, rosewood is normally reserved for the 700, 800 and 900 Series, but the 400 Rosewoods now feature rosewood - with lustruous gloss finishes - in a more accessible price range. The non-cutaway 410e-R Rosewood blends the time-honored Dreadnought shape with a classic rosewood and spruce tonewood pairing to offer players a quintessential acoustic workhorse guitar, especially for flatpickers and strummers looking for strong tonal output, good low-end growl, and strong, clear trebles.
The 410e-R ships in a deluxe hardshell case for optimal fit and protection.
The Dreadnought is one of the most traditional acoustic guitar shapes. 's version has been refined to blend its trademark robust low-end tone with a snappy midrange and brilliant treble notes, producing a pleasing balance of power and articulation. If you're a flatpicker or strummer who likes to dig in on lead or rhythm, the Dreadnought will serve you well.
A guitar's top is the primary filter and distributor of vibrating string energy through the guitar, which means it has a huge impact on its sound. Sitka Spruce is the most prevalent guitar top wood of the modern era. It blends stiffness and elasticity in just the right proportions which translates into broad dynamic range with crisp articulation. Solid Indian rosewood back and sides complement the Sitka top with sound that's made it one of the most popular tone woods ever. Rosewood produces the strongest bass response among the tone woods commonly used for guitars, with a slightly scooped midrange. Rosewood's sweeping frequency range - deep lows that assert a throaty growl with sparkling highs - rings out with bell-like, high-fidelity clarity. It yields a full-range acoustic voice with complex overtones and extended sustain.
