The Natural Concerto Signature

15” Italian Varnish Acoustic Archtop

Background

Description:

This Custom Ordered Natural Hand Carved Concerto Acoustic Archtop has a very wonderful and expressive voice. It is a very versatile instrument that shines in many styles of music and guitar playing. A side soundport was added for a more intimate relation between the player and his instrument. It is, like it’s base model the Modern Signature, completely assembled like a String Quartet Instrument.

The braces are Rancourt Guitars own original design, hand carved in the top to enhance the harmonic response & complexity, it’s power,  to reduce loosing vibration through glued straight joints and to give a more balance natural  tone and resonance to a wider frequency range throughout the top.

It has beautiful lines and also includes a very interesting configuration using both a Magnetic & an Internal transducer pickup to provide more possibilities for the amplification of this wonderful acoustic instrument.

The result is a highly responsive instrument with a very large dynamic range and a beautiful articulate voice
