The E8D-TC dreadnought guitar goes through a thermo-cure process which cooks off the oils, sugars, and resins in the wood and done in a controlled heat environment to essentially speed up a 50 year process, opening the guitar up to a full range of tones. This creates a louder guitar, perfect for musicians trying to compete with noisier instruments.
We inspect each and every instrument we ship out for maximum playability. We adjust the action and adjust intonation when needed. If you would like a specific adjustment, just add it to your order notes and we would be happy to adjust to your liking.
