Built from woods had picked by Moore Music owner Brett Mulzer, this C25/CMYe Cst highlights some iconic Oregon woods. The Western red cedar top, dubbed “rainbow” red cedar by the luthiers due to the distinct, bright coloration, responds well to a light touch so it is a great wood for the fingerstyle player. The myrtlewood back and sides from trees endemic only to the southern coast of Oregon and the northern coast of California, will give the guitars a balanced treble and bass favored by many for recording. With a semi-gloss finish, the body of the guitar is further defined with a maple binding, while the fingerboard features a graceful Linear Fusion inlay.
The Concert is our most popular body shape, favored by players because it is well-balanced, compact, comfortable to play, and offers all the qualities of a great sounding guitar. It generates a wonderfully articulate range of tone with an ample low end that is never boomy, but always felt. The Concert works well when played fingerstyle, as vocal accompaniment, or at a full strum.
Top – Western Red Cedar
Western red cedar is a wonderful wood for fingerstyle players. It is softer than spruce, so it requires a careful and accurate touch, and it rewards with sweet, extended harmonic content.
Back/Sides – Myrtlewood
Myrtlewood, umbellularia californica, formerly oreodaphne californica, originates in California and Oregon. Myrtlewood offers a strong fundamental with a powerful voice. Grown in the Pacific Northwest, it is a favorite for many styles of playing and is used primarily for back and sides. Similar to maple, it is clear and bright with superb projection and sustain, and offers a very full and balanced sound. Highly unique, no two sets are alike. Coloration ranges from blonde to taupe.
