Jasmine S35 Dreadnaught Acoustic Guitar
A Simple Guitar, Great Sound and Playability
The Jasmine S35 is a standard, six string dreadnaught acoustic guitar, for straight forward picking and strumming. It's a simple instrument with no electronics, but it does have a spruce top, nato wood back and side, and rosewood bridge and fingerboard. The S35 is light weight and very responsive. With a 1-3/4 inch nut width, it's well suited for finger-style picking, and the extra width makes it easy to form all chord forms. The healthy 25-1/2 inch scale length gives it extra power and projection, even with light gauge strings. The rosewood fretbord has a standard 12 inch fretboard radius, for easy chord formations.
Thoughtfully designed, the neck features an adjustable truss rod, that is accessed through the sound hole, with no need for a truss rod cover to weaken the neck at the head. It also has a low luster, satin finish which lets the top and body vibrate more easily, while protecting it from the elements. The guitar is well voiced and has ample volume, clarity, and projection to satisfy any non-amplified need, and let you have fun doing it.
The frets on the S35 are smooth and well finished. These smooth frets make the S35 easy to play, with smooth chord changes and hand movements up and down the neck. It comes with light gauge strings, which work well with the smooth frets, and minimize the effort required to form full six string chords.
