Overview

The AFH700WEOB is an elegant, cosmetically rich, full-bodied OM with a responsive, open sound. The high quality solid Sitka top helps produce a lively and wonderfully balanced tone making this guitar a versatile all rounder suitable for all styles of music. 

The beautiful Obsidian Blue finish on the 700 is stunning, carefully crafted to produce a mirror deep shine and sophisticated and unique appearance. It is fitted with the SYS150 3-band EQ with notch filter and backlit digital tuner. 

The term “solid top” of course refers to the soundboard of an acoustic guitar being made of solid wood, rather than being laminated. However, just because the top is solid, it does not necessarily mean the sound automatically benefits from this feature. The tone of the instrument only improves significantly when the whole guitar is built correctly to optimize the energy a solid soundboard can generate. Artist Series is built to do exactly this.

Each model is designed to get the best out if its components, and for them to work together to produce balance, lively projection and great response. These components include the FST2 bracing system, bi-level laurel bridge, real bone nut and saddle, great quality tone woods and thin finish. 

FST2 is a forward shifted X brace design, this means the axis of the X is closer to the sound hole and therefore creates a larger soundboard area allowing for more energy and vibration to be harnessed. Both the X braces and asymmetric tone bars are carefully scalloped. The scalloping design was the result of years of continual development in the Yairi workshops. 

The Artist Series sound and personality is open and powerful. FST2 also creates very good balance so both the treble and bass registers are clearly present and balanced in relation to each other.

Along with a more angled headstock, the bi-level bridge increases string tension by making the break angel of the strings from the saddle to the top more acute. Improved string tension adds to the sound, feel and response, which are also heightened by the use of real bone nuts and saddles. 

Artist Series also demonstrates great finishing capabilities; the gloss models have a clear deep shine from a finish that is applied as thinly as possible, again to help optimize tone.
