Our SD15SHB is a traditional, premium quality dreadnought with a very warm, focused tone and is very strong in the middle register.
With a solid African mahogany top and mahogany back and sides, the SD15SHB is a very traditional guitar shape, but its internal construction is a forward shifted scalloped X bracing system with some proprietary tweaks. This creates a more modern, more open and more dynamic tonal palette than many traditional dreadnoughts.
Our 15s are distinguished from other Sigma models by a stunning shadowburst finish, accentuating the grain of the mahogany. It’s an aesthetic that appears modern and vintage at the same time, a look as versatile as the guitar’s own sound.
Like all of our instruments the sound box of the SD15SHB is alive and the forward shifted bracing allows for more of the soundboard to vibrate delivering awesome response and player experience.
Traditional components such as a real bone nut and saddle, mahogany neck with a dovetail joint and rosewood bridge and fingerboard add to its tonal capabilities and overall quality, and cosmetically its shadowburst finish, ivory ABS binding, and inlays make for a truly inspired instrument.
