This distinct instrument has actually a woven carbon fiber top– two layers of carbon with a poplar wood core– that is just.032 inches thick, or about a quarter of the density of an average wood top. Carbon fibers resemble the fibers in spruce– extremely strong in stress and bending– and they behave extremely much like spruce in the Adamas top, but they will never warp or take in moisture.
This Adamas CVT likewise featues a five-piece mahogany, maple, and ebony fingerboard; gloss black peghead with gold Adamas logo; 24K gold machines; an Ovation Thinline pickup; and Optima electronic devices with an onboard chromatic tuner to optimize your sound in any location.
The ingenious, lightweight style gives this instrument excellent tonal balance suitable for fingerpicking and alternate tunings.
