• The Andersen Concert Model guitar is the only standard flattop guitar in my line. It has been produced since I started my business in 1980. It is a very versatile guitar, well balanced, with good volume and projection.

    There is a lot of room for customizing the sound, depending on the choice of woods used. The standard wood choice for the Concert model is a top of engelmann spruce, back and sides of Indian rosewood. This combination produces a well-balanced guitar with good sustain and overtones. Changing the back and sides to Brazilian rosewood will give the tone just a bit more of an edge, with slightly higher overtones. Using maple for the back and sides gives a much dryer sound, fewer overtones, with the fundamental note being more prominent.

    For the soundboard, a change to German spruce will make the tone a little more lush than engelmann. Choosing Adirondack (or red) spruce will make a bright, punchy guitar.

    • Engelmann Spruce soundboard
