Summer is here, which means it’s time to grab an acoustic and go write some songs in the sun! And if you didn’t already own one, Thomann has fantastic deals on three great acoustic guitars, so now there’s no excuse for you not to be playing your favourite summer tunes!
Baton Rouge AR61C/ACE Auditorium
First up is the lovely Baton Rouge AR61C/ACE Auditorium model. This full-sized acoustic has a solid Canadian Cedar top, paired with an exotic mahogany back and sides, and a mahogany neck. The fingerboard and bridge are made from Ovangkol, and you get a Nubone nut and saddle. The model comes from the factory strung with Elixir strings.
It also has a Baton Rouge BR-2P pickup system installed, allowing you to plug into an amp or PA, or straight into your recording interface. This is a two-way pickup system which blends the acoustic sound of a bridge pickup with the percussive sounds of the guitar body that percussive players are able to coax from their instruments. I have popped a video all about it below so you can see what I mean. At almost half its regular price, this acoustic is a steal and I doubt it will stick around for long.
Recording King RDS-9-12-TS 12 String
There were some fantastic Recording King deals earlier in May, and it looks like now there are a couple more. This sweet Recording King RDS-9-12-TS 12 String model should give you all those lush tones that have come to be associated with classic ’60s psychedelia. Also, everyone knows a 12-string guitar is the perfect tool for songwriting.
Cross Lap X bracing
The guitar has a Solid Sitka Spruce top, a bone nut and saddle, and Cross Lap X bracing for improved strength and sound projection. Players looking for that full 12-string sound and tone at an affordable price should definitely check it out.
Recording King ROS-G6 OOO Guitar
Last, but certainly not least, is this stunning little 000 size model, the Recording King ROS-G6 OOO. This little beauty has all the classic construction techniques associated with this style of model.
Classic 000 style
The guitar features a solid spruce top with X-bracing, mahogany back and sides, and a mahogany neck. It has all the hallmarks of a sweet sounding acoustic and should be perfect for fingerpicking your latest hit with.
Like always, the deals are limited to stock, and when they are gone, that is it. So don’t wait around too long or you may miss out on a really good bargain.
