The Classic Burst Mars model is a drop-shoulder of dreadnought design, made using a great combination of Red Cedar and Mahogany.
This FRESB45 model has a wider (45mm) nut and is joined at the 12th fret, which adds an extra depth of tone and makes it ideal as a fingerpicking instrument.
Classic Burst models sound as rich and warm as they look. Using a three-tone burst finish based on deep brown, red and amber, this colouration technique is intentionally understated and is a long-standing, traditional favourite.
The tonal character has emphasis on the lower-midrange with a beautifully warm, vocal nature.
