A solid AA Sitka spruce top and pau ferro back and sides pair to produce unique blend of warm, sustaining sounds with tones that are punchy, direct, and spectrally robust. FS6 tapered tone bars ensure a sturdy, lightweight build with plenty of projection, precision engineered to maximize volume without sacrificing quality. The mahogany neck boasts an Indian laurel fingerboard, with a neck profile shaped between a soft "V" and "C," as well as a body cutaway that gives you unfettered access to all 20 frets. Pau abalone and mother-of-pearl detailing adorn this traveler, demonstrating excellent design that’s easy on the eyes. Take advantage of the LR Baggs VTC Element System to plug in when you’re ready to take your sound to the crowd!

 

Unmatched tonal delivery

Craftsmanship has always defined the Artist Elite Series, and the LJP70CEARSHB is no exception. This acoustic-electric guitar is topped with solid Sitka spruce, known for its tremendous resonance and projection, as well as a solid, straightforward tone with plenty of headroom. The pau ferro back and sides deliver a bright, balanced sound, with shimmering highs and sonorous lows that exude warmth and articulation throughout the spectrum. Players will enjoy the uncomplicated, punchy profile of the mahogany neck, adding plenty of midrange oomph to round out the slightly scooped mids of the macassar ebony. The Indian laurel fingerboard expands the tonal profile of mahogany with saturated lows and glistening highs, imbuing your tone with a smooth, shimmering finish. 

 

Perfect for the studio and the stage

This guitar’s traveler design isn’t just limited to lounging around the house or small gatherings. Thanks to the LR Baggs VTC Element System, you’ll experience high-quality capture of your sound, taking it to crowds of any size. The unobtrusive design is soundhole-mounted, practically eliminating any impact it could have on the resonance of your guitar. Volume and tone controls are accompanied by a special compression circuit designed to subdue unwanted thump from lower frequencies. Moreover, the pickup senses the top of the guitar, rather than string motion, helping to get rid of that nasty piezo “quack.” This active pickup faithfully and clearly reproduces your sound, adding tape-like warmth and saturation for richer harmonic character.
