The "modern approach to acoustic guitar tradition" has long been our motto for the Artwood series. Artwood Vintage steps even further back in history and borrows the best features from highly desired vintage instruments. The Artwood Vintage series now employs another vintage element by applying an "aging" process to the tone wood. The wood is Thermo Aged through a special drying process at high temperatures which is commonly referred to as "baking" or "Torrefaction". Only specially selected and seasoned tone wood can be cured using this process. The wood is heated in a vacuum with a specific process for each type of the wood, in order to release water and decompose resin contained within the material.
As a result, Thermo Aged tone wood becomes light, hard, and stable, approximating the tonal characteristics of wood that has dried for decades, while providing amazing response and a louder sound. The tonal character includes a full-bodied low-end and a great smooth sustain in the treble notes which are common features of vintage guitars. The AVD11-ANS features a Thermo Aged Solid Caucasian Spruce Top which also delivers a dry vintage sound. Furthermore, a semi gloss antique finish offers an even more classic appearance. The AVD11
