Hohner, Inc. unveils two new families of Essential Series acoustic guitars.

The Essential Roots' SO and SOO body shapes are described as reminiscent of the smaller bodied guitars that contemporized the music of the early 20th century,"combining a sunburst finish and classic body style with the building techniques and features of the current Essential Series.
Hohner unveils two new Essential A/E models that include a Parlor cutaway and Dreadnought cutaway. All Essential A/E series guitars are equipped with black tuners, a black nut, black bridge and Fishman Isys+ preamps.
All Essential Series guitars are built utilizing a technique Hohner calls "frequency matching." Hohner's technicians utilize a form of tap tuning to determine the resonant frequencies of the wood and then match the solid spruce tops with similarly resonant mahogany backs and sides. According to the company, the result is "a guitar that is unusually resonant, producing a rich, singing, tone that makes even the small bodied Parlor and SO guitars sound huge."
The guitars feature a micro-thin finish and the pick guards were left off in order to encourage the vibration of the tops.

 

Pricing

Price points on the Essential Roots start at $279 MAP for the Roots SO and SOO models and $349 SOOCE, Parlor A/E and Dreadnought A/E
