  • Size Comparison and Enhanced Sound: The CSF series guitar offers a compact body while delivering full-size sound. Despite its smaller size, it boasts increased bass response and overall loudness, resulting in a surprisingly rich, vibrant sound that some guitarists find more comfortable to play than larger instruments.
  • Great Resonance and Construction: Utilizing scalloped bracing, the CSF1M achieves rich, full-bodied resonance akin to that of a full-size guitar. Its forward-shifted construction maximizes the resonance of the guitar top while maintaining the body's strength.
  • Solid-Top Construction: Featuring a solid-top construction with Sitka spruce tops and mahogany back and sides, the CSF1M guarantees quality and durability in its build.
  • Passive Undersaddle Pickup: Equipped with an undersaddle piezo pickup system, this guitar incorporates individual sensors under each string. These pickups deliver excellent sound quality when connected to an amplifier or PA system. Inspired by the L Series acoustics, its passive design eliminates the need for batteries, offering a simple and convenient solution for studio or stage performances.
