The Prestige Eclipse Series feature a Grand Auditorium body shape, with cutaway. The Grand Auditorium is tremendously versatile and equally suited to both finger picking and strumming. The GA is an ideal all around body shape.
The Eclipse Spruce Rosewood maintains an ideal tonal balance with the combination of solid Indian Rosewood back and sides, and solid Spruce top. Many players consider the combination of spruce top with rosewood back and sides, to be the standard that all other wood combinations should be measured against. Spruce as a top wood, has a very broad dynamic range and crisp delivery throughout its entirety. Rosewood has a similar basic tone to mahogany, but it’s as though you’ve taken the highs and lows and expanded the range in both directions. The bright end is sparkling and crisp and the low end is deep and booming. The combo of Spruce/Rosewood is tremendously versatile and can handle nearly any style of playing from flat-picking to finger picking and bluegrass with ease.
