The Sigma SF15SHB is a OO style folk guitar made with a solid African mahogany top and mahogany back and sides. Like all our models it is very much a traditional style instrument with a modern, open sound. The SF15SHB is also presented in 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.
Being a smaller body guitar the tone is tighter and a little higher than our dreadnoughts but due to our bracing the SF15SHB is still surprisingly powerful with great projection. Again like our dreadnoughts we use a scalloped, forward shifted X bracing system allowing more of the soundboard to vibrate resulting in a lively and exciting little guitar to play.
Without doubt this guitar is perfect for folk and blues but can really handle big open chord strumming very well too.
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, all presented in the shadowburst finish which delivers a unique and impactful aesthetic
