The ACS-SA nylon string electro/acoustic guitar has remained a constant favorite among players looking for amplified nylon string sound live and in studio. The new ACS-SA/USB features a highly figured natural flame leaftop over a silver leaf maple body, ebony fingerboard, custom onboard preamp, ¼” output, 13-pin capabilities for synth access and now comes with a USB output for direct & easy access to computers, which is ideal for recording.
The ACS blends classical guitar concepts with elements of solid body design. Although the body is chambered, response from the maple top is more typical of a solid body design than that of a traditional acoustic guitar. This design results in an instrument that is virtually free of feedback, making it easy to use even in a live & loud band setting.
The engine in all the ACS models includes individual transducer saddles powered by a customized preamp system from the RMCTM Pickup Company. This system not only produces superb amplified sound, but also produces a hexaphonic output through a 13-pin connector enabling direct access to RolandTM GR-Series guitar synthesizers.
