The SF28 is a OO style folk guitar made with a solid Sitka top and rosewood back and sides. Like all our models it is very much a traditional style instrument with a modern, open sound.
Being a smaller body guitar the tone is tighter and a little higher than our dreadnoughts but due to our bracing the SF28 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 generate vibration resulting in a lively and exciting little guitar to play.
The SF28 is different to the SF18 in that it produces a wider tonal palette with stronger bass and trebles, unlike the 18 that is stronger in the mid range. Both are excellent and it’s really down to personal preference which will suit you better.
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, and cosmetically it’s a true classic with ivory ABS binding and inlays.
